Your machine is making an uneven copy, the cause of this problem sometimes is on the optics inside the platen mirror, try to clean the mirror and the lens with a dry soft cloth. With dusty environment optics is easily filled with dust making the copy very light on one side. But after you clean and still uneven copy occur , the problem is now on the laser scanning unit , the LSU is also dirty or dusty , you should call the authorized technician to clean the LSU , cleaning of LSU is not easy because it takes a lot of covers and units to be disassembly.

Poor print quality brother mfc5860cn


Possible fault or weakness of the printing heads, possible poor ink cartridges or poor settings.
Open printer properties and set the contrast and brightness levels to desired conditions and make a est. Readjust and try once again .If there is no result try to reinstall the drivers and test. If not the head and ink can be suspects.

Our Sharp AR-160 copy machine is 5 yrs old. We have had to have continued maintenance, most recently the "developer" was replaced and our copies still come out faded. How long should we expect...


Hi,
Did they clean the laser unit?

You can play with bias to raise the copy darkness.

For start you can open the front door and right side way door, remove drum unit, and you will be able to see long glass above drum unit. clean it with the dry wipe or wet one but be sure to dry it.

By my experience it is a good low maintenance copier... if the preventive maintenance is carried out correctly, every 60 000 copies more or less.

Hope that helps!

I have black smudgy lines going down the left hand side of my printed copies. What do I do?


1. Check the toner level, when it's low the quality of the prints becomes poor.
2. If toner level is good, clean out the printer inside. The best way is to buy an air compressed can, get the printer in an open space and blow any toner from the inside of the printer. Give it a good clean as there might be residual toner inside that make the poor quality.

WEAK COPIES ON XEROX COPIER


You need to 1 remove the glass and clean the mirrors, lens and bottom side of the glass.
Also, remove the toner and drum cartridge, use a flash light. On the left side you will see a "window" about 5/16th of an inch in height, and probably 5 or 6 inches wide. That is the laser window, it is probably pretty dirty. You may have to use a Q tip or a soft cloth, dampened with some glass cleaner, and clean that window well.
If the optics, and laser are dirty , hazy, the copies will be light and streaky. The drum may be bad. Also, on the right hand door, Look just above the rollers, there will be an opening, it has a small clear plastic guide, then open with a hair fine wire running through it. Take a Q tip dampened with some alcohol, and carefully clean that wire. You can apply light pressure to clean it, just don't get forceful, it does not take a lot of pressure to clean that wire. That wire is responsible for "transferring" the ink from the drum to the paper.
If you clean all 3, Optics, Laser window and transfer wire, I think you will be very very pleased with your copy and or print quality. That should restore it very well.

Workcenter xd103f copy comes out blank


Which cartridge did you change? If its the toner cartridge, make sure none of the packaging materal is left on it, same with the drum cartridge. First and simply remove and reseat the cartridges.
What I suspect with the blank copies is a broken transfer corotron wire.
Open the right side door. On the bottom you will see some whit plastic rollers. Above that you will see an opening about 1/2 inch wide. There is a very thin wire in that channel. That wire has probably broken causing your blank copies, I highly suspect that is broken.. That wire when it is dirty also causes really poor copy quality.
Also clean all the mirrors and glass well. That will cause poor copy quaility issues.
