Replace the yellow Dev unit. This will most likely eliminate this problem. They have a life span and I am replacing then on machines less than a year old on occasion.

Tip

When u print if u r getting the Horizontal or vertical line then follow these...


If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer.
Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down, as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed.
If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat surface.
Horizontal black lines
A horizontal black line on the printout is probably the result of a dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant black lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part might be causing the problem. Table A
Distance between lines
Faulty part
0.5”
Registration assembly
1.5”
Upper registration roller
1.75”
Lower registration roller
2.0”
Toner cartridge developer roller
2.56”
Lower fusing assembly roller
3.16”
Upper fusing assembly roller
3.75”
Toner cartridge photo drum
Regularly spaced splotches
If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum has a larger diameter than the fusing roller.
Vertical black line on edge of page
This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

Printer shows worn dev unit what is this please


The dev unit (developer) is the part that the ink toner cartridge fits into, one for each colour (K-black, C-cyan, Y-yellow, M-magenta). Two things wear out on dev units, the bearings at each end of the developer roller or the roller itself. The roller is made of metal and is magnetised so a thin film of toner sticks to it, the magnet is recharged by electrical "rubbing" contacts inside the printer as the drum rotates. Gradually the contacts rub away and so the roller loses its magnetism, this will be noticed by an increasing amount of toner being spilled inside the printer. The roller bearings speak for themselves, gradually the roller will become more & more difficult to turn smoothly and so the toner will not be evenly distributed. The only way to fix this is to replace the worn dev units although cleaning the contacts will help to preserve their life.

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

Aculaser C2600 "clean sensor" message won't clear. Have just replaced K toner and it printed about 300 copies then stopped with the message. opened cover and closed it but after calibrating the message...


This is a common characteristic which arises from using improperly remanufactured toner cartridges.
Otherwise it is a bad Epson original one - which is highly unusual!

When the C2600 runs through its calibration it prints strips of each colour on the transfer belt which are sensed for density. You will get a "clean sensor message" if the reading for any of the strips drops below a certain value.

The first thing to do is to depress the clean sensor lever behind the front cover several times . If that doesn't fix it I would advise you to remove each cartridge in turn (go to reset menu and scroll down to change toner) and inspect the toner on the surface of the roller. If there is any form of "sheen" then you'll need to replace the cartridge.

It is possible to adjust the doctor blade if you know what you're doing but be careful as there are shims on each side. Loosening and moving the blade bar towards the roller slightly, refixing and then turning the side cog to rotate the roller can sometimes resolve problem. Not a good idea really unless you're in an emergency.
There are some good remanufactured cartridges and bad ones. If you want to avoid this buy genuine Epson cartridges - I know they're expensive but what does the down time cost!

The magenta & blue rollers on our Epson Aculaser C900 are printing in stripes.


quick check

1. are you running out of toner magenta and blue??

2. remove magenta and blue, shake them gently HORIZONTALY to evenly distribute the toner inside (the toner container internally has a spade that feeds the toner dust to a spongy roller then to the roller u see on the outside :) )). DON'T HANDLE THE TONER CARTRIDGE VERTICALLY ---ESPECIALLY WHEN U ARE LOW ON INK---

3. on photo conductor read my article
