SOURCE: double print or a shadow print

You have probably been using non genuine toner, some kinds of this toner is not the same quality as Brother toner and just chews you drum out before its due to be changed. Change the drum and use genuine toner.

SOURCE: Toner life end

There is no reset code the likely thing is that you have a faulty toner cartridge. Put another new one in and check the machine then.

Before you try the above shake the toner cartridge and tap it some more as it may also be the toner inside have become solid and needs breaking up.


Hope one of the above works for you
Thanks J

If it is on copying it can be a build up of ink on the scanner glass. Open the cover in which the the original is scanned. There will be glass strip that can be cleaned also check the white plate that sits above the scan glass.

If it is recieved faxes and prints as well the problem is going to be the drum has worn out. You have two machines, try interchanging the drums to see if the lines that are present on one machine travels to the next. That way you can see if it is definately the drum. If so change the drums on the machines and they should be fixed.

SOURCE: Continue to get a message to change drum soon. Changed drum already. Print quality is still not good.

your drum unit which you have replaced have still not detected by the fax machine.you have to reset the machine when you change the drum.or replace the drum and insert the new drum in the OFF mode so it will not know if any thing changed in the machine and mostly should work as normal.

please keep updated.

How do I get my Canon Pixma ip7220 printer to stop printing blurred lines?


Hello, my name is Steve.

This is an early sign of print head failure.

Soon it will give you an error code on display or ill be observed on your computer. The print head nozzles are not firing correctly. The only way to remedy this is to:

1. Have the printer serviced and cleaned ( the cost of the new print head and a cleaning and servicing of the printer

2. Order the print head online and install it yourself. The wonders of the internet can find an give you a video of how to do this.

The part number is: Canon QY6-0082-000 Printhead (Canon QY60082000 Printhead) I hope this helps, Steve

Changed the print head in my Canon MP760 but now printing is blurred and very faint


Try cleaning the felt pads where the print head would rest when not printing. They get full of ink and cause more printing problems. I use water to clean them.Don't loose them, they are needed to keep the print head from drying out.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

It was a warm up problem. When the machine is down for an extended period, it takes about 10 minutes for it to warm up properly and the light will go off.

Errors??


Sounds like the printwheels are out of time. Sorta of major repairs. gears on side of printer have to be lined up in proper areas. there are small black arrows on the gears. Best bet is look at a working machine and try to line up. Machine may not be worth the time unless you jsut want to try it. Sharp uses the same printers in many different models.
