Konica 2223 copiers are analog meaning the image that comes out on copies is a direct reflection off of the copy. Dirty mirrors in the optic section can cause a dark band, but it is more of a shading effect. Drum assembly's can be removed.The image drum has a cleaning section that uses a urethane blade to clean excess toner off of the drum after the copy passes through.It is simply called a "Cleaning Blade" these blades can be ordered through most online copier part stores. Last but not least is the "Upper Fuser Roller". this is the hot roller the paper passes through to "set" the toner to the paper. These are coated with teflon to prevent toner from sticking to them. They have "seperator claws" that keep the paper from adhereing to the roller, and they sometimes gouge the teflon. this exposes bare metal, and the toner can come off of the copies and stick to the roller.

I'M GETTING A THICK BLACK LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE OF MY. PHOTO AND UPLOAD. TRIED RE CALIBRATING WITH WHITE PAPER. DIDN'T WORK HELP


What printer do you have? Is the black line appearing on the paper when you print or when you fax/copy something?
If it is the latter, then there will be a mark on the optics glass that needs to be cleaned. Usually people using whiteout when wet causes this.
You will need to lift the cover where the paper goes through and check the glass

PANASONIC FAX MACHINE PRINTING BLACK THICK LINE


Open the front of the fax machine. Then pull down the the tray that has the down arrow imprinted on it. Locate the glass strip towards the back, just behind the center roller. Use a cloth and rubbing alcohol to clean the glass and that should remove the black line.

Line almost straight down center when receiving fax


if you try a internal print such as a report does it go away? if so its more lucky the person sending you the fax.

if you print a report and its on there i would check the ribbon and look for marks, also it could be a transfer problem causing these marks.

Hope this gives you a starts

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side


If the print can be rubbed off then this suggests the fuser unit is not working correctly. It could be that the thermistor is covered with toner and making the machine think the fuser is hot enough when it's not.

The black line could also be caused by the fuser if one of the pick off fingers is coated with toner or has worn into the Teflon of the roller.

Does the machine show the lines when you print a page from memory - such as a counter or config page? If not, this would suggest the optical path is dirty. Try cleaning the glass and look at the mirrors inside the scanner to see if they are dirty/dusty.

Dark toner streaks


can only be toner, drum or fuser, pull out drum and look at surface are you streaks present? usually drum.

Stop a print half way threw machine and then remove drum and look at print, pre hot bit (fuser) are you marks there? If so it is drum, if not fuser.
