Olivetti 8516 photocopier quality problems

I am having quality problems with the above. The toner is attaching itself to the purple roller and the result is that the photocopy has lines all over it. I clean the purple roller and do the usual required cleans to the patten,etc,etc.

Can you please tell me what part I need to replace to stop this.

After cleaning the purple roller the toner starts to attach after a very few copies .

Copied paper becomes black


Either your Contrast setting is way too high or you have a faulty machine.
If the machine is a multi-function laser machine with
A) an All-in-one toner cartridge, eg HP or Canon, the problem is probably a faulty Primary Charge Roller or corona wire (rare these days) - or
B) a drum and toner cartridge assembly, eg Brother, the problem is most likely a broken corona wire in the drum.

If either of the above, take the affected part back to your supplier or a remanufacturer in your area. The should be able to confirm the fault and replace or repair.

If the Machine is a purpose built photocopier then either of the above problems may apply but you are unlikely to be able to find it without disassembling the machine somewhat and you should talk to a copier technician.

Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


Hi


Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.

Xerox M15i uneven print and photocopy quality. Center of the page is darker than edges. I have run the clean drum, put in a new toner cartridge.


If the problem appears BOTH by copy and print situations, the problem is the drum unit itself.
Unfortunately you have to buy a new drum assy.

Gestetner 428 colour photocopier: background effect all over


It's possible it could be the transfer cleaning unit, but it's more likely to be the fuser or the transfer belt itself. If the hot roller is old or dirty or the press roller isn't providing enough tension, all of the toner might not be getting fused to the paper.

If only one color were showing mottling, it would probably be the developer, but it's unlikely that all four developers went bad at the same time.

I have a Ricoh Aficio 2018 PhotoCopier. Recently it ran out of toner. I reinserted the old cartridge which I had re-filled with toner (ricoh). However the off-side (non-copy side) of the sheets are dirty -...


You probably have a toner spill which has gone under the transfer roller. Open the right side of the machine and you will see a dark colored roller on the inside of the open part. Stydy it very carefully and you will see how to remove the roller including it's holder. be carefull of the springs, they love to escape. also watch as to how the bushings and gears are assembled so you get them back on properly. Clean any toner out from underneath the roller, replace the assembly and run 10 copies of a white piece of paper. this roller runs on the backside of the paper and can cause your problem. Hope this works for you. Check your paper tray as well as toner can migrate down into them.
