Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier

1 Answer

Toner streaks Thanks for the help here guys. I have a Canon C3200 that has been putting random streaks on random pages. It seems to be all colors, except black, but it could be in there as well. I have installed four new drums, a new fuser assembly and replaced toner. Once I did all this I figured I'd be off and running... not so fast. The cyan drum appears to have been defective since it was ''dumping'' toner on the backside of the belt. I put the old one back in and it corrected the problem. Now what I am getting(which was my original problem before I replaced everything), and it can be any size, anywhere on the sheet, is a CMYK streak all the way across the page, but not all the way down the page. I also get a 3/4'' streak down the middle from top to bottom with alternating colors... These prints of extra toner look like they were swept by a broom, or in this case, a wiper of some sort. Is there a wiper I should replace? Or is it something else that needs replacing? Last week I printed a black and white document and didn't have any of these issues, so I figure the black is okay. The machine only has 131k on it, so it's not like it's worn out. And by replacing all of the aforementioned I figure I'm pretty close to a pretty new machine anyway... ha! This whole issues is probably something simple that I could have corrected with something off an infomercial for $19.95, maybe that Billy Mays guy has something I can use, or perhaps a SHAMWOW! is in order?

You have to change a sensor. This sensor is on the left hand side of the machine. To know which sensor you have to open the left door and not take out the fuser. The sensor monitors opening and closing of this door. Make sure you change this one with a sensor that has the full black plastic. There is nothing worng with this machine except than this sensor.

Yellow Drum Cartridge or bad toner. If your using generic toner it can cause this code. If generic toner is used drum cartridge unit will have to be replaced and Canon Genuine toner used instead. Yellow seems to be more suseptable to this than the other colors for some reason.
