This printer also has a drum unit. If the marks are appearing at regular intervals down the page (2-3 inches apart) it is almost certainly the drum unit at fault. The drum unit can easily and cheaply replaced.

Leaves black marks on copies


It could be leaking toner from the recovery area that sis on top of the dum, it removes any toner that was not transfered to the paper. You would have to remove it and empty out the toner.

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


Hi


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.

Black lines on copies and on drum


There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this problem.
  1. Be sure you are using new, clean paper
  2. Clean the copier's paper rollers, the marks may result from a dirty roller mechanism.
  3. Clean the copier bed's glass plate, smudges manifest themselves in the final copies.
  4. Clear any excess toner that has spilled in the toner cartridge chamber. Remove the cartridge, set it aside, then clean the compartment.
  5. Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy
If all else fails, try turning down the darkness of the copies in the settings, this can occasionally lead to lines and marks.

The copier has a white mark down the center of the copy


Open up the machine and remove the toner cartridge. Keeping the cartridge somewhat level, simply shake it from side to side to re-distribute the toner inside the cartridge. Re-install the cartridge and test. Keep in mind if this solves the issue then your toner cartridge may be getting low on toner.
This will resolve this issue 90% or more of the time.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a muratec mfx 1930 and the toner is not reaching the amount of 16000 copies after 8000 copies the pages are coming out with black marks like clouds on the sky the only solution is to replace toner...


If replacing the Toner cartridge fixed the problem then obviously the cartridge was defective. The cartridges should last "up to" 16,000 pages ( 5% coverage ,11" paper) Take the cartridge back to the Dealer you bought it from and explain what happened.

Paper comes out black when printing and copying.


A. The drum is not being charged. The charger corona wire is probably broken or not making good electrical contact. The charger corona wire may be part of the toner cartridge. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the toner cartridge. If that doesn’t work, try another toner cartridge.

Changed the toner now I am getting black copies?


It's important to gently shake toner cartridge from side to side to distribute the toner. It's also important to clean the corona wire (by sliding the tab from side to side) and the drum each time you change the toner cartridge. You should remove the toner cartridge (be careful, it can be messy), clean the corona wire and drum and your copies should return to normal.

Black smudge marks along left side edge of paper.


Its probably a defective toner. If the film on the toner drum is scratched it can cause toner to stick to the drum everytime it spins causing the constant marks.
