Its probably the metal shaft not the belt that is causing the problem. Sometimes it gets dirty because the bushing underneath the print carriage gets worn. You can clean it by applying light oil to a cloth and wiping the shaft.

The printing issue maybe caused by a timing/clutch problem. You can try turning the printer off/on with NO paper in the printer several times to try and reset it.

Unable to print to canon IR7200


More than likely their is a problem with the file or that it is too large to process and has gotten stuck in the que on the copier. Go into printer set up and find restart server or clear server - it's ussually at the back end of all the settings. You want to clear the server and restart it. Then try printing a few pages of the file to see if their is an issue with it. If that prints then print half of the file, if it's has a lot of graphics pick a smaller chunk. You can also restart the server through the copiers internal web page - to get to that type the copiers ip address into internet explorer and it should bring it up.

Prints only on left side of page.


Hello,

In printing web pages and email please try to check also the print setting before you print the page cause word document files and web pages are not the same in there printing setting. Web pages and emails has different setting so my recommendation is that when you print email and webpages next time then please check the printer settings then modify it the same settings as you wish or as your word document's output.
Thanks

Kyocera Mita FS-1000+ paper slip single page? 5 pages print ok


This is a known problem.
Kyocera pretends to produce very silent printers. Therefore certain sheet metal parts inside the printer have a small piece of sponge rubber at their endings.
Unfortunately over the years this sponge rubber gets sticky. The corresponding lever, that is covered at its end with sponge rubber, sticks too long to its initial position. This is the reason why a certain lever is moved too late by the electromagnet into the position where a certain pulley is released.

As a result printing and paper movement are no longer coordinated and the printout is too low on the sheet.

Solution: Get rid of the sponge rubber, clean the lever very well in order to avoid it from sticking in its initial position. As a result you will here a much harder metallic noise when the lever moves, but the printout should be o.k.

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

Words Copied Multiple Times


Yes Cartridge problem is what causes double imaging 95 % of the time, there is a rubber blade in the drum unit that wears and doesn't clean off old image from drum. Have known this fault to be fuser at times, the way to tell is to get a print to stop half way threw machine by openning door during print, remove cartridge and look at print, you want it to be stop before the fuser(hot bit) but after the drum, image still rubs off if pre fuser and then you can see if defect is present before paper travels threw the fuser, but in your case I think you will find it is not the fuser it is toner cartridge.
