check the drum for toner leaking, sounds like the drum blade.
the drum is a shiny cylinder inside the machine, open and and see if it has black rings

SOURCE: copies are dark

No. It would most likely be the opposite.

The stripes could be caused by contamination of the dev roller, fixing rollers or marks on the drum.

You could also clean the laser ****-glass.

SOURCE: Canon PC6re copier makes copies that are dark on the long edges

Just fyi, a Canon PC-6e is a copier that is about ten + years old of a model... The drum unit will make the copies better.... But, you most likely need to clean the optic's. Have you tried to make the copies lighter??? If I am correct, there is a small botton on the control pannel that will turn... It will make the copies light one way and darker the other way... Good Luck

I have a Xerox XC820. I am getting dark copies with residual images from previous copies. Toner appears to be adhering to the drum cartridge. Do I need a new drum cartridge?


I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.

Its me again,after the user changed a new toner cartridge after few copies there is a dark back ground in copy.before replacing the toner the copy was perfect pls help me in this problem


Hi, After a few copies, the toner supply unit pulls more toner, which results in dark copies. To fix this, you have to reduce the contrast (to minimum). Also, make sure that there is no excess toner within the toner supply unit.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH

XC820. All copies have a 3/8" wide dark band


There are a few different issues that it could be, the feed rollers could be dirty, as well as the belts into the fuser. Be really careful when opening copiers. Toner is really small particles of plastic that melt with low heat. Use a Hepa filter vacuum cleaner so you don't create a large mess. I suggest rubber gloves, q-tips and put down drop cloths or newspapers to protect the area around the copier. be really careful, most of the belts are mylar and are easy to break. Remember that toner is heat sensitive, brushing can cause it to melt. just try vacuuming first. if you get any on your hands, use cold water and mild soap.

I have a Sharp AL-1655CS and when i make copies, the copies are really dark. For example, the white areas come out gray and dark. How can I fix this problem?


I would try a different toner cartridge or possibly a drum cartridge. Have you had the machine serviced at all? When?

Poor copy quality


The drum, developer and other parts have a certain life that they are good for. After they go beyond that cycle they can start to run dirty, use alot more toner, basically give you problems until a complete maintenance is done. The drum can have permanent light fatigue, even though they look good and in alot of cases one side will start to get darker than the other. You should get an estimate of what it'll cost to have servicing done and compare that with the cost of a new or refurbed machine. If the copier is very old, it might be worth it to get a new one. Good luck, please rate this if it helped you. Thanks

Copies are not dark enough


No. This really needs to be done by a tech, it is quite complex, and the optics also should be thoroughly cleaned beforehand as well, in order for it to calibrate properly.

Please rate me :)

Brother HL 2140: Toner ledlight lit, stopped printing. Cleaned Coronary Wire. Toner Cartridge new - 2 weeks old.


Hi Adsl34xg,
The cartridge that comes with the printer (or starter cartridge) has a yield of 1,000 pages @ 5% coverage. It probably really has run out of toner. Replace with a new cartridge to see if you can print. A replacement cartridge should give you 2,500 pages @ 5% coverage.

Xerox XD130df empties toner back into cartridge overflow


that really sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Either there was no developer in the cartridge or the metering blade that limits the ammount that gets onto the roller is bad.
Has to be the toner cartridge. Unfortunatly that may have also ruined the drum and cleaner within the drum cartridge. Return them for an exchange.
The reason it is running and running is that it is trying to read a patch that is developed on the drum and add toner to make a dark enough copy. And that definatly is not happening.
If the laser was not turning on, the machine would come up with a L something code. Besides if the laser was not comming on, the paged would be blank.
You can pretty much eliminate everything but the toner cartridge.
