Xerox Copycentre C20 Prints nothing but blank pages

I purchased this machine at an auction and it appears to be brand new. I purchased a new toner for it and installed it. However, when i try to copy i just runs the paper through and comes out blank. It does the same thing if I try to print a report from the menu. Any Ideas?

Is the paper (copy) truly blank? Please look very close at the page. It sounds like the coratron (charge) wire (s) are broken. These are thin wires this use electrical charges to transfer the image onto the paper. You can go online and order a small spool of the wire and restring the wire. You do not have to be a doctor to do this repair but a steady pair of hands is very good. NOTE:::::: pay attention, most of the coratron units use tiny springs... so look and listen in case it falls out. You can restring with out the spring but it is better with the spring. Remember when stringing the wire, not loose but do not over tighten.

When your drum was replaced did they put in a new drum assy or just replace the drum cylinder? I would purchase a new drum because these are one of the chepest to buy, around $ 80.00. They have a 6 month warranty and around 20,000 copies. I would replace the drum to see if that solves the problem. Before doing that, pull off the left side bypass assy. It is easily removed without tools. You should be able to see the drum and see if the drum is clean. If not, then replace the drum unit assy. Are you using only Canon toner, no other kind of brand will work. Generics should work but they are usually not as good a quality. The volume is very low and that should not be an issue. I believe its suppossed to handle 10,000 copies per month. Cleaning the glass top and below may help. The mirrors should also be cleaned as well. Good luck.

Which toner I could use for copycenter c20?


Use OEM. Xerox cartridges only if you want reliable clear prints.
I have tried many different generics. I wouldnt recommend using anything but the OEM cartridge. They just perform better.

Could be a bad drum unit. Is the new toner cartridge a refilled? Remanufactured? or Brand New Xerox brand toner? If it is refilled or remanufactured I would run some copies and give it a chance to clear. Sometimes they end up with too much toner in the Developer mix and can be overtoned which causes a general background over the whole page. They should clear up as you run copies, say within 100 pages. Also try manually lightening the copy with the exposure control on the operation panel. If lightening the copy clears all of the background then you need to have the optics cleaned. There are 4 mirrors under the large original glass that need to be cleaned. If all this fails then you are looking at either drum unit or a defective or out of balance toner/developer cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

There are many different companies that sell compatible toner, and the quality varies greatly. You should try getting your money back from the company you bought that toner from, and find a new supplier if you can't get it from Gestetner. Premier is a company that sells compatible toner for many different machines, and they usually get pretty good reviews.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture


Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.
