Canon pc-d320 copying problem


When I make a copy of some documents with presses (marks from stamps) like ID, the copy doesnt contain any of those presses.  So copy is a literally blank teplate of document without stamps! I guess its kind of problem with copier's exposure options and I wanted to correct its manually but whe I disassembled the device I did not found any variable resistors to correct the exposure settings. The problem is that copier doesnt copy semitone and light colours what on the copy supposed to be gray.

Is there any ideas what can I check and do? Does somebody know where is that goddarn variable resistors for exposure in canon pc-d320?

please help.

p.s. I guess it's not a problem of cartridge, scanner of printer parts. Cause it printing actually quite good.

    Dont u think I did that?!?! This is not a solution. Was it helpful? Hell no!

    Well somehow I came to idea that it is a problem of scanning mirror and how close it get to glass. Cause moving those mirror upper and lower of the glass makes the difference on copies. Although I did not make that really better and solve the problem.

You can take the machine off auto exposure and manually run the exposure darker using the exposure settting and + and- keys.

How do i print copys of MX310 printer manual

Do you mean the Canon Pixma MX310 all-in-one inkjet printer? If you wish to print a copy without using a computer, first make sure that you have ink and paper loaded and that the all-in-one is on and the paper output tray is extended. Place your document face down on the glass or face up in the automatic document feeder. (Note: the scanner doesn't see the document if it is within 2 mm of some of the edges of the platen glass. If you use the ADF, remove any document currently on the glass.) Press Copy (if the unit isn't already set to copy). Check the default settings on the LCD screen and enter the number of copies desired. Press Settings to change any items and use the left/right arrows to change the number of copies, if needed. Press the Color or Black button to make the copy(ies). Color for color documents and Black for black & white documents. Press Cancel to stop copying.

The FAQ on making a copy without storing the image on a computer is here: .

The manual is available on the product support page: . Click on the Manuals tab. The manual is in a self-extracting executable file. You'll need to run the program and then find the icon or folder where the manual is stored. (The default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon/IJ Manual .)

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, please add a comment with any error messages that you see.

Copies come out with what looks like a water mark down the entire page on the right hand side.

Hi; Simply, you must clean the unit of devthe eveloppent with a vacuum cleaner, and especially The Transfer roller, what you have is a cause of the toner from the magnetic roller.

Exposure problem

If internally generated prints are good, but copied documents are bad then your scanner needs cleaning. This can be found in the document feeder section where the light scans across the paper. If both copied and internally generated prints are bad, then chance are, your toner/drum catridge has run out.

Canon Image Class D320 does not copy entire page. New toner has been installed.

Has anyone changed the paper size in the paper tray to another size by accident? Have you tried the manual feed tray? If that copies the whole image then the problem is with the paper size input of the paper tray.

Canon PC-D320 prints only left half o document with closed cover

I had the same problem but it was caused by the scanner that was not running flash under the copier glass,if I remember correctly there are spacers on the scanner that keep the scanner to run exactly the same distance from the glass of both sides of the scanner.
On the other machine,I found a faulty scanner cable that cause a similar problem.

How do I scan on my canon D320

While the D320 has a scanner, it is used only for making copies. You can connect the D320 to a computer and use it as a printer, but there is no provision for scanning documents to a computer.
