Question about HP LaserJet 3380 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Copier not printing properly

Whenever I copy something it prints with a crooked medium line through it. This line runs from the top to the bottom (vertically) of the page and it cuts out that section of the words or document copied. This makes the copy look very untidy and it is quite frustrating. Can you help me solve this problem?

In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be  dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the  cartridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10  Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same  way........
Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a  Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper 
Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer........ Good Luck

Ricoh aficio 1800 .why copies are now black lines appear from top to bottom?


I guess you talk about Ricoh MP 1800.
The Black lines on the bottom appear because the copier has made more than 60,000 prints or more if new.
If it's bought used, than it has made 60,000 or more prints from the last change of the drum and the drum cleaning blade. For the print to be clean again, it will need to be changed the drum and drum cleaning blade. This copier as all other copiers have parts that have a yield.

I have a Canon FC244 copier. The paper jammed and I have found a long plate with 2 springs attached loose inside. I cannot see where this should be fixed.


Hi Canon copiers are among the most common photocopying machines available on the market. They are known for their affordability and delivery of quality photocopies of printed pages, and because of this, they have been used in various business and office establishments. Like most copiers, Canon copiers also have their own setbacks and issues, but these can be fixed easily once they are properly diagnosed.
    Issues.Among the most prominent issues with Canon copiers is when the machine produces either full black or white copies. Most users tend to think that the problem lies with an empty ink or toner. If that were the case, however, then they would still receive copies, but the prints would either have unnecessary lines or blurry images. When the copier produces plain white or all black printouts, the problem has to do with internal parts of the copier. Causes.The causes of the production of black or white printouts can be traced to one of two roots: broken corona wires or faulty circuit boards. If the copier has an erratic circuit board, it not only produces all-black copies, it also has a misplaced light/dark slider that has to be manually adjusted in order to produce quality prints. Diagnostics.You can troubleshoot the problems concerning Canon copiers by doing a quick check to see where the problem lies. If you are experiencing intermittent black printouts, see if the bias lamps turn on during printing. These consist of small lamps at the bottom part of the copier drum, where the transfer corona is. The lamps should be not be lit whenever continuous black copies are produced. Faulty circuit boards, meanwhile, can be diagnosed when you have to slam the top-down cover of the machine in order to produce quality, and not blank prints.

UN WANTED LINE APPERS ON PRINTED PAGE WHEN PAGE


I do not know what kind of copier you have but lines (when you run thru the feeder) are usually caused by something on the glass under the feeder. If you open the top, you should see the big piece of glass and also a piece about an inch or two wide next to the big one. Look closely at the smaller glass for any spots on it. A spot will show up as a line on the copy. You can use windex to clean it.

Problem for print by photo copier


sounds like the charge grid is not set properly in the drum unit..did you et up the drum unit properly and run the new dev and drum set up..if youy are getting black the charge is not working correct as the charge of the drum help to keep the toner from adhering to the drum surface when copying .. I would take the drum chrge unit out again and check it is set in the right way when you put it back on also check the contacts arent put out of line.

Printing crooked from one drawer, and no option to print from another drawer


Try this spray on a little WD40 on the GLASS and wipe it off.
Yes, you heard me correctly, make sure you wipe it off leaving no residue, but it's still slippery.
the problem may be coming from the glass being too dry and the paper is getting stuckand shifting.
If the paper itself was going crooked it would get jammed or ripped. There is no room for the paper to go through the path crooked so the only way for it to copy crooked is somewhere in the optics.
try doing 1-2 on the glass itself and see if it copies crooked.
The envelope tray is a By-pass tray and can be used for any size paper.You can switch which tray it copies from on the panel tray button.

2nd side crooked


I would have to say that there must be a same piece of paper touching the paper as it is being feed through the duplex ass'y. The best thing to do is to see if the copy gets tilted toward the front or rear of the copy/ copier. You will be able to find where the obstruction is in the dupex path.
