You have to do what is called a "shading adjustment".
In order press "menu" #1934 on the machine, You will see a " T " displayed in the upper right side of your display. That means you are in the Tech mode. Some versions of software will also just say Tech.
Press the machine status button and then scroll to maintenance. Once there scroll to Adjust Shading, or Shading adjustment.
Place 5 pieces of clean white paper on the glass, 5 pages thick., not spread out, then close the cover and press start, it will ask you if you want to perform the adjustment , just press yes again. It will print out a page when done, that page displays across it, the pixils the the CCD in the scanner sees. If you notice it had some large deviations in it, the scanner will need cleaned. The numbers on that page will really mean nothing, Even if it says OK on the bottom does not mean the mirrors in the scanner are clean.

Have a Xerox M20i Copier/Scanner/Fax. Display indicates "Scanner Locked" Cannot make copies nor fax out. Please help


If you look under the scan assembly you will see a yellow or green tab which locks the scan head. Try locking and unlocking it a few times then on the final unlock reboot your printer.

Scanner locked


Check your green scanner lock which is under the scanner area right in that area where your copies comes out of the machine. This is the most common cause of the "scanner locked" condition. The lock gets accidentally engaged as it is located right where you reach in to get your copies.
If the lock is not the problem then you may have a scanner drive issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Light bar does not move. copies come out blank


Have you verified that the scanner is not in the locked position? There is a unlock switch located underneath the paper exit. First power the printer down lock and then unlock this switch then repower the printer and try your scan again.

I have a Xerox Workcenter M20i.


You need to replace the fuser. There is a heating coil in the fuser roller that opens. Replace the fuser and it will resolve the problem.

Adjustment for light copies on a xerox m20i


You will need to do a couple of things, 1 remove, disassemble the scanner and thoroughly clean it, and while you have the scanner out, remove and clean the laser.
The toner cartridge may also be defective. that metering blade in that cartridge fails and causes light images also.
If you need instructions on how to remove and clean the scanner and laser let me know, I will type them out to you.
Not hard, just time consuming.
If you print out a report how does that look? If prints look fine and just the copies are light, then the mirrors in the scanner head a re probably fogged up. All the plastic in that scanner causes that same film on your scanner optics as you develop on your car windshield. Same process.
