Copies are very dark; almost grey

It is a Mita DC 1205 copier that was given to us. Had been work OK until the toner bucket was full and needed to be emptied. New toner leaves the copies black/grey and unreadable.

Try using a small soft brush to brush it off while using a good hepa filter vacuum to remove the toner at the same time. Wear a good breathing mask to protect your lungs!

On normal contract my copies are very dark.


The optical area of the copier need some cleaning. Consult a technician for support. This is a minor problem.

The screen says AP -what does that mean


AP means that the copier is going thru a major toner cycle.
Sometimes when you drag a lot of toner out for dark copies, the normal toner cycle is not enough.
The spring that takes the toner from the cartridge to the dev unit mat also be faulty or broken.
Sometimes the AP message will go away but make sure you have plenty of toner.

Produces Light Copies


Have you considered changing or checking the toner cartridge?
Does it display a low toner light?

I had a similar problem with a copy machine, where ALL the settings were correct and the toner was light.

The problem was the toner cartridge, the toner was caking because of the temperature. All it took was a good shake at the toner cartridge and it worked.

Also, check to see if the scan bed is messy, a good cleaning the the scanner bed should work as well.

Hope That helps!

Mita DC-1205 Copier


Open the front door... on the right is your toner. It is a cartridge that inserts long-ways (front to rear) into the machine, and should be white or ivory in color. DO NOT remove the old toner cartridge without having a replacement on hand. The new cartridge will have a plastic "cover" on it that assists in releasing the toner cartridge locking tab, and "seal" the old cartridge as you remove it from the copier. The cartridge opening is face down upon installation into the machine, and you may get some spillage if you remove it without the cover. DO NOT remove the new cartridges mylar seal until AFTER you install it in the machine!!! There should be a picture label inside the front cover showing how to replace the cartridge. And there is a pictorial diagram on each new toner cartridge box also detailing this.
Use only MITA DC 1205/1255/1415/1435/1455 toner, OEM #MTA37041013. Should run you about $12-$14 per cartridge retail, or cheaper if shopping around (I sell them for $11.99). Do not use copystar brand for the same equipment. Although it's the same toner, the shape of the cartridge is slightly altered, and may not "fit" into the machine. I forget how it goes, either Copystar will work in Mita, and not the other way around, or vice-versa. Either way, better safe than sorry.
