Why is my photocopier only printing half a page?


Sounds like one of the sensors in the doc feeder that detects the size of the paper has gone bad.

Also, make sure you always close the document feeder when making copies. Sometimes it helps to put a blank sheet of paper over the back of a small object if you're copying something small.

I can't use Print function for ByPass or Document Feeder?


The document feeder is used for copying and scanning ,it is a unit in a copier where you can placed your documents or originals for copying and scanning. The bypass tray is used for copying and printing, the bypass tray is used for types of paper like plain paper, acetates etc and customized papers. If you want to used the bypass tray for printing you should go to printer properties or configuration and select the tray you want to used like bypass tray .

Xerox Copycentre C20 Prints nothing but blank pages


Is the paper (copy) truly blank? Please look very close at the page. It sounds like the coratron (charge) wire (s) are broken. These are thin wires this use electrical charges to transfer the image onto the paper. You can go online and order a small spool of the wire and restring the wire. You do not have to be a doctor to do this repair but a steady pair of hands is very good. NOTE:::::: pay attention, most of the coratron units use tiny springs... so look and listen in case it falls out. You can restring with out the spring but it is better with the spring. Remember when stringing the wire, not loose but do not over tighten.

I am trying to copy a document from the automatic feeder. The feeder will not pick up the document and instead of getting a copy, I get a blank page. I have cleaned the rollers and nothing has changed.


I have noticed that these rollers can wear to the point that they no longer make proper contact with the paper regardless of cleaning. (Especially if you frequently print to paper of varied thicknesses) Try using a card stock sheet in the automatic feeder, if the problem goes away, you will need to replace the rollers to print to standard letter.

Not photocopying


Open side, look at black assembly on the door, there is either a black spongy roller there or two wires in a black assembly,

1- wires may be broken resulting in blank copies
2- roller out of place
3- HVT (high voltage transformer) not working

Copying problem


check paper through paper cassette, then through bypass,if fault occurs on both, it is possible the registration roller area is possibly faulty.

There are other reasons for this relating to image formation, but please start with paper feed.
