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.

Black vertical line when copying a book light leaks.

If it is along the edge of the print, it may be the edge of the book page you are seeing. if it is going through the text of the page, your scan carriage is likely skipping. If you don't see this on copies of single sheets of paper laid on the glass, then the weight of the book may be deforming the glass enough to catch the scan carriage as it passes. If you see it on single copied sheets, there is probably something on one of the scan rails under the glass that the carriage is "hopping" over as it passes. You could try watching the scan carriage move while holding the lid open to see if the carriage "hops" once during a scan.

Sounds like the scanner led head. Try to look in under the scanner when doing a copy to see if it is fully lit, can be a pig to rplace, some brother parts are not too expensive but you will need an engineer to order it and fit it
