Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

Epson C1100 Print quality

The print quality produced by my Epson Aculaser C1100, which has been wonderful for the past 18 months or so, is now appalling. The black ink just wipes off the page, often coming out of the printer already smudged - or wipes off when touched, even days later. The LCD display says that the Photoconductor Unit is worn. Is it the worn photoconductor unit causing this printing problem? New photoconducting units cost a fortune to replace and I don't want to spend that money and find out that this problem is caused by something else. I am toying with ditching the thing and buying a new printer. Your help would be appreciated.

    Dear Cops



     



    Thanks for your diagnosis.  So is this something that can be fixed or should I give up on the printer and buy new?



     



    Thanks

    Many thanks for this.  Given that the Fuser is £127 and the photoconductor is a similar price, I might as well buy a new printer.  Doesn't seem very environmentally friendly but never mind.



     



    Thanks again

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 Pete@wedotoners.com

To clean..pull out the holder few times.. by applying slight pressure..that will clean the bottom lens..and u should be able to print out fine now..

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


Hi
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
