Afficio 450 copy faded in some area...
If the image is good in parts, but light in others it is most often toner build up on the laser exposure glass which can be easily -but also VERY CAREFULLYremoved. If you lift the green handle for the toner bottle, you should see a narrow piece of glass protruding just underneath. You can grasp it with you fingers and slide it out for cleaning. Sometimes these have been removed (or broken) so they are not there. If the machine is also a printer, you should see much improvement (if this was the cause). If regular copying is still light in areas, then you may want to remove the copier glass - 2 screws on left scale, and 3 screws on rear scale (POWER OFF ON MACHINE), remove glass and clean with glass cleaner, then slide scanner to the left and clean the mirrors.
Hope this helps.
