Hi, I need to know where the marks are appearing on the print. Do they repeat down the page? If so measure the distance between the top of the first mark to the top of the second mark. Usually it is one of the following.
150mm: it is the PCU drum, take out the PCU and try gently cleaning the drum with a soft cloth, avoid strong/bright light as this will damage the sensitivity of the drum.
51mm: it is the 2nd BTR roller, remove the PCU. Inside the printer at the back you will see a black "foam" roller, gently clean with a soft cloth & try to avoid touching it with your fingers as any grease/oil could cause the symptoms you describe.
82mm or 94mm: these are the rollers in the fuser unit. Allow the printer to cool, open the back top cover. You will need to remove a small white plastic bracket on the L/H side (if it is held by a screw be careful not to drop it into the printer). Next unlock the two levers on the top of the fuser and pull it upwards and out of the printer. clean the orange colored rubber rollers with cloth or an alcohol wipe (screenwipe) and ensure it is dry before refitting.

Epson Aculaser C1100 error code C0084. How is this code cleared.

The issue cause due to temporary "data error" that is easy to resolve. :-

  • A corrupted or interrupted print job, or:
  • A data or interface cable that is not connected correctly.

So, follow these steps:-

  1. Disconnect the printer from the data source
  2. Does the printer pass its ROM, RAM and Self Test checks?
  3. Test the printer standalone by printing a Status Sheet
  4. Cancel all pending print jobs on the network or computer
  5. Reseat and reconnect the data cable at both ends
  6. Test the printer

Print quality Epson Laserprinter C1100

Sounds like you need to clean the laser lens to me. On the R/H side of the printer is a small panel, just pull this off. Now open the front cover, on the R/H side is a lever, pull this forward. Now look again inside the panel you removed earlier, there is a green "stick". Just pull this backwards and forwards a few times to wipe the lens clean. Put everything back and try a test print. Good luck.

Print quality Epson C1100

It sounds as though a cartridge is faulty. To determine which one, the easiest way is to run a page of text/block of colour through in yellow then cyan then magenta. which ever page comes out with the streaks on it will tell you which cartyridge to ditch and replace. Hope this helps Cops

Epson C1100 Print quality

no this is not a photoconductor problem. your fuser unit is faulty, it is not getting up to the correct temprature to "fuse" the toner to the paper hence why you are able towipe the toner from the page. Hope this helps Cops
