I just responded to your other thread, sounds like you are trying to use a generic dev, or something. You are asking for big trouble.

    If that's true. Then you should know it is 500g. It says right on the bag

  • Anonymous Mar 03, 2009

    So, if you were to take out the developer unit and tilt it to one side, the developer will fill in the empty spot on the roller, and then you can make some copies before it sort of works itself clean and fades away on one side? Am I understanding you properly?
    If that's the case, the only thing I can suggest is that the machine must not be level? I have never had a problem like that otherwise.

Gestetner 3245 dev.bias setting....

Hi how you doing the main problem with changing the dev bias is that the gap between the drum charge and dev bias has been brought closer and so more toner is being put onto the drum for image density.. I take it you have cleaned the optics on the scanner mirrrors and that the laser **** glass has been cleaned as these effect the copy quality too.. if the dev hasnt been changed at the pm intervals it slowly looses its charge holding capabilities.. you should change at least at the 160k marks to keep quality good.. you could also adjust the laser power up so you have a stronger image formation..hope this helps..if you know the machine I would take the laser unit out too and take the cover off to see if there a dust coating in the image mirrors as this can cause faint copies over a long period.. Good Luck A

Fuser..?? afficio 450

The fuser probably will not help. I think you probably will need a PCU, and a service call.
