If the counter page looks good then remove the glass and clean the underside of the glass and mirrors, there is also a glass that covers the laser under the toner hopper, that may need cleaning. -Carl

Kyocera km 2550, copies are faint in the centre

If your prints or status page prints normally and the light/faint area is only when making a copy then the mirrors in the optics need to be cleaned. They can get dusty or build up a film on them. You must turn off and unplug the copier then remove the large glass that you place your original on. There are two screws to the left of the large glass if you remove them the piece of plastic that holds the glass in place on the left can be removed. Left the glass off. If you are careful you can grab the center of the mirror base that houses the lamp that comes on when making a copy and slide it slowly to the right. This will allow you enough space to clean the mirrors. Use a clean lint free cloth with a mild glass cleaner (with no amonia). Put everything back to were it was and plug in and turn on the machine and you should be all set.

Faint copies

Several things. If you use it as a printer and the prints are clear, then you need to clean the scanner.
If both prints and copies are light, then the laser window needs cleaned, and possibly a drum and developer.
