Question about Canon CLC 1150 Color Copier

Inconsistent color after only a few prints

Usually when I first start the machine up, I don't have problems. But after to a few prints I begin to get bands of lighter areas. The strips of less colour are sporadic, and I am not sure if it is a driver issue, my files or if I need new consumables. I don't know much about my machine, but I don't want to pay a tech to look at it. Someone please lend me a hand. Thanks

Thanks for responding. I had it serviced today, and it didn't correct the problem, but the tech mentioned that it was probably a developer problem (thought it would need to be changed) though he didn't calibrate it to my knowledge. I am not going to put any more money into the machine and I am resigned to the fact that I will just have live with the inconsistent output. I have found that if I send two copies at a time I am usually okay. If I send 50 or so, then I am getting a bad copy every other page. Thanks again for responding.

It sounds most likely that there is a developer/toner calibration problem. I know it is very expensive but when was the last time you had the machine serviced?

    Inconsistent color, nozzles clean same ink cartridge same paper


    Problem with ink continuity. Ink at head spray out, but ink at tank not flow to head. Print block color for each color. Is it perfect? Do nozzle check, head cleaning, wait for 30 minutes. Check again.

    Verical lines of inconsistent or un-even printing,


    In almost every case, the problem you describe can be traced back to 2 things. Dirty corona wire or dirty drum (or both). Pull out the toner cartridge, slide the wire cleaner back and forth a few times, clean the drum. The gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute the toner and replace. This should solve your problem. Best of luck.

    Unable to print BLACK


    The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:

      1. Press the Ink Management key.
      2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
      3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
      4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
      5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
    If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, three colors at a time (CYAN, YELLOW, and MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL. Follow the steps listed below to clean the print head:

    Cleaning the Print Head
    1. Press the Ink Management key.

    2. Use the up or down navigation key to select CLEANING.

    3. Press Set to confirm your choice.

    4. Use the up or down navigation key to select the color that is not printing
      -OR-
      Select ALL if more than one color is not printing.

    5. Press Set to confirm you choice.

    6. The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time.

    7. Test by printing the "Print Quality Check Sheet":

      1. Press the Ink Management key.
      2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
      3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
      4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
      5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
    If one or more of the ink colors is still missing from the printed page, repeat the print head cleaning steps listed above up to 4 more times. After each cleaning, print the Print Quality Check Sheet to see if there is any improvement.

    I hope it helps!!!
