Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.

When we recieve faxes they have black lines running down the entire length of the page. I have already changed cartridges and am wondering if there is something that needs cleaned? What can I do?

You have to determine if your FAX is the problem or the sending FAX has the problem. The first thing to do is make a copy or print a report. If it comes out clean you FAX is NOT the one with the problem. The sender has to get their optics cleaned.

On the other hand, if it's still "streaky" then your fax has a problem. First off remove the cartridge and look inside it, if you see toner get a can of compressed air (sold in office supply stores to clean keyboards) and blow out as much as you can. I suggest taking the machine outside the toner dust can make quit a mess. Make a few copies (5 - 10) to check it out. Each copy should come out with less misplaced toner.

Brother Intellifax 2600 - Solid black pages

Black pages are indicative of a bad drum. A failing drum basically can't be charged anymore. Since the toner cartridge can't discern what part of the drum is calling for toner, it simply fills the whole page with toner, creating the black pages you describe. You should check the drum, and corona wire and clean both. If the problem returns, you have a bad drum and should replace it.

If you attempt to print any kind of report from your unit and the pages are still blank there are two posibilities.
#1 The toner cartridge tape was never pulled out correctly/ the toner cartridge might be defective.
#2 A more serious cause fo the same symtom might be a defective hi voltage section in the unit. On a newer product this is not very likely

When receiving a fax I get either big black plotches all over the page or thick black vertical lines running the whole length of the page to a point where I can no longer make out any of the information...

Try making a copy of something or printing a transmission report or journal from the "reports" menu. If the same problem is apparent on these printouts, then your drum unit or toner cartridge need to be replaced

Right side of printed page is faded

pull out your drum unit and look inside machine above where the drum would be. you should see a black assembly that runs left to right with a "****" glass. may need a flashlight. clean that glass off with a clean rag. sometimes toner "scatter" will get on glass and cause this.

let us know,

Problem is ambiguious but print out a report from your machine and if it comes out black, it is likey a toner cartridge problem. But if its OK make sure your scanner lamp comes on when reading the original

Black pages when making a copy or printing something

Have you tried both drum and toner supplies? cause it sounds like a drum fault, if you have tried a new drum and toner, and it is doing it when printing internal reports, receiving fax's and copying then you have a tecnical issue to do with charge and this would likely render machine unecomical to repair (unless you can find a bad contact with drum on machine). If it receives faxs clearly but copys black then it is different issue (ie optics).

Copied pages are all black

Is is a lower end product for light duty use. You can try a new genuine OEM drum and or toner, but buying them both would cost as much as a new 2800. Can you print a internal report OK?If so, then your scanner is defective. A common problem with 2800,s
