Re: Xerox xc830

Try taking your toner cartridge out and knocking on it over a garbage can and then put it back in...sometimes the toner clumps up in the cartridge from sitting.

I have a Xerox XC820. I am getting dark copies with residual images from previous copies. Toner appears to be adhering to the drum cartridge. Do I need a new drum cartridge?

I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.

There are 3 lights on the xerox 1020 first one

you replaced the drum too soon, replace old drum until red light flashes then install new drum.

My Xerox XC830 copies are dark and have lines but otherwise present the image. How can I make the background white again.? Thanks! Ron

You probably needs some servicing. Drum, developer and other parts have a life cycle and once it's exceeded you can start having copy quality issues. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.

My copies have a thin line from top to bottom that is very light to no print at all. The thin line is at the same place every time but the rest of the copy looks great. I have replaced the drum and toner...

You probably have some thing in the developer unit, if you take out the developer and check the bag roller and brush, if you slowly turn the dev unit you might see a void area that is being passed onto the drum.
If the developer has a large numbers of copies on it then dump the developer and replace the starter.
Make sure the developer get thoroughly cleaned especially behind the blade.

If the developer is not all that old, then lift the blade off and clean the backside of the blade, and the area or areas of the brush that have the void.

Hope this is of some help.

Copier too dark

Did you clean the lens and the mirror under the lens cover? If so, There is a VR behind the front cover of most small Xerox machines. One VR makes the image darker/lighter and one VR changes the lead edge registration.
