Question about Canon ImageRunner 1600 Copier

1 Answer

Blurry bottom 2 inches of copy from IR 1600

We have a Cannon IR 1600.

If we place a copy under the "lid" vertically, the last two inches of it are blurred.

Any suggestions?

The quality is fine if the document is placed horizontally or through the feeder.

    The suggestion was helpful in that all the copies are blurred in the same position. Now for the neophyte question. Where is/how do I get to the scanner?

Take a Normal,reduction and an enlarged copy(at any ratio) of a Newspaper in different size papers. Then check whether the blurred position is at the same position or not.If it is at the same position, check scanner for its free movement, there may be an obstacle which will not allow the scanner to move freely resulting in blurred copy. or else let me know.

Copies and outgoing fax quality

your machine most likely has toner spills in it.
if you send faxes face side down follow these instructions ;
1- take out toner
2- look for thin glass strip on bottom inside the machine
3-wipe clean

if you make copies side up then do the same except look for glass strip on the upper side of machine
