What did you wipe the drum off with???? That is why you have this problem. You may want to try recleaning the opc with a dry soft rag, also you may want to clean the drum blade... If that dose not solve your problem, you may need to replace the opc & blade... Have you tried to stop the copy before it gets to the fuser unit.. If so, are the marks there???

There is a dark vertical line of toner on prints


Common problem. Most likely caused by a bad drum cleaning blade. This is especially true if you run say 10 copies and the last copy out of the machine is worse than the first copy out. Drum cleaning blades are cheap at less than $30.00.
Good Luck and Thank You using Fixya.

1/3 OF RIGHT SIDE OF PAGE DARK OR LINED TOP TO BOTTOM


Drum Cleaning Blade failure. Open up the top half of the machine as if you were removing a paper jam. Now look under the top half and about in the center from left to right. You should see a burgundy colored cylinder running from the front of the machine to the back. If you can see the toner streaks on the surface....expecially on the 1/3rd like on the copy then this will be proof that the drum cleaning blade is the cause. Simple repair for a tech that knows copier basics. A good estimated cost would be about $25.00 for the blade and whatever the going rate is for a service call in your area.

Minolta Copier EP1083, copies are coming out mostly black


What you mostly need to do is to clean the optics under the copyboard glass the mirrors are mostly dusty... I would use a soft dry cloth to wipe the mirrors off. There is a mirror under the "Black Box" I would also, use a lightly damp rag with rubbing alcoh. to wipe OFF the scanning lamp & reflector. Cleaning the optics should get read of the dark back ground, but the drums are only good for 80k... You may need a new OPC drum & blade. Good Luck

Depends if the lines go across the page as if the paper comes out or if they go down the page. If across then poss drum, transfer, or fuser unit, If down the page could be a short on the charge then poss only drum unit.

Thanks Jason
