Question about Sharp AR-5320 Black and White Copier

1 Answer

Smudges on paper and ink is light when it does copy correctly.

The copier has 2 problems. 1) The ink is light when items are copied. The paper just gets dark when you try to make it darker. 2) Paper that is copied has black all over the paper until I think it warms up and then it copys ok except the ink is light like the first problem.

It sounds like your drum unit needs to be replaced. Do the smudges look characteristically like a finger print? Technicians have a rule of thumb. Replace your drum, developer compound and general service the machine as often as you service your car. Assuming you do service your car as often as I do, it should be after every 25,000 copies. If the machine has never been serviced then its time you did.

Hp inkjet printing solid black page


Hi Robert, if you're trying to copy something that you've placed on the glass without closing the cover of the copier, there's too much back light (coming from behind the item to be copied) and therefore the resulting page will be black. The only light should come from within the copier itself.
If the item you're copying is bulky and will not allow the cover to close, try taking an 8-1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper and cutting out only enough of the page to allow your item (to be copied) to sit flat on the glass while covering the remaining exposed glass with the paper.
I hope this helps, good luck.

Toner smears and smudges off copy.


The "fuser" unit is not working. It should be heating the ink and the paper, in order to "melt" the ink into the paper, to "fuse" the two components.

Call your local Canon office, and get a Service Call to inspect/replace the fuser unit.

Smudges on pages


There are a few causes for smudges on page depending on the age and amount of copys the printer has done
1. Useing cheap refurbished tonor cartridges is the first.(try changing tonor )
2 Tonor has leaked into printer and is being picked up by paper as it passes through. (turn of printer and have a quick vacume where the tonor fits )
3 The most expensive one of the problems is the fuser unit has failed this usually mean you have done a high amount of copys and a replacement fuser unit is needed

THE INK MAY NOT BE TOTAL DRY WHEN MAKING BACK TO BACK COPIES, SOMETIME YOU NEED TO LET THE PAPER TONER DRY, LET THE PAPER COOL OFF BEFORE PUTING IT THREW THE MACHINE AGAIN, AND I KNOW ITS A PAIN IN THE BACK SIDE.

Xerox Copycentre C123 Creating a Ghost Image


First place an original on glass and make a copy -- mark #1. With that same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way light and make a copy -- mark #2. Again with the same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way dark and make a copy --- mark #3. Place #1 in the middle so the the copies read --- #2, #1, #3. The #2 should be the lightest and #3 being the darkest. If #2 is darker than #3 you have a developer problem and you need to call for service. If #1 and #2 are bad and #3 is a good copy your machine probably just needs a good cleaning, mainly the optics and charge units. If all 3 copies are still poor with the speckles, your are looking at the PCU ( photo conductive unit) also called the drum unit. You can order this unit online -- it is a customer replaceable item.

Sounds like your drum cartridge might be bad.
Something you can try that might narrow down the problem is to make a copy of something and shut the copier OFF in mid copy.
(Basically, when the light is about 1/2 way finished scanning.)
Then, open the machine up and removed the jammed paper which should be 1/2 way through your machine and hopefully about 1/2 way under the drum/toner cartridge unit.

See how the copy looks at that point. **** FYI **** The toner on the paper is NOT FUSED so it will RUB OFF. Keep the paper away from your clothes and toss it.
IF your copy has smudges on it, then there is a real good chance that your drum unit is bad and needs to replaced.

If the copy looks good, then there is a possibility that the fuser unit is bad and needs to be repaired.

I would say that your drum unit is bad with my experience with Canon Copier.

If you still have more questions, feel free to ask.
Have a good day.
Good luck.
