Question about Canon imageCLASS D780 All-In-One Laser Printer

Copies are blank

It seems there may be an issue with the scanner/lamp as it looks dimmer than I recall (but i never really paid attention before). All copies run normally but nothing prints. A blank page just comes out.

I am now getting blank copies when copying only from d-copia 3514mf olivette.thescanner lamp is coming on and the scanner moves

Can you check the connection to the CCD on the scanner lamp? The doc feeder comes off by lifting it upwards whilst wiggling it. Then unscrew the lid. Make sure it is unplugged when you are doing this. There are high voltages within the scanner lamp unit.

Blank copies from copier

You don't say what model your fax is.

In general. If when copying you get a Full BLACK page printed then the scanner lamp is not lit. As no light is reflected into the image scanner, it interprets this as BLACK information so therefore only black is printed. Look into the ADF while the document is being scanned and I bet you will see no green light at all. A new Contact image sensor should cure it.

I just paid a tech to come out because the printer stopped printing (the pages were coming out blank) I purchased new toner; but that didn't fix the problem. The Tech came out and said he just had to...

I suggest you remove the toner cartridge, take it outside and holding it away from you shake it back and forth a few times. Reinstall it and try printing.

Canon NP6412 Blank Copies

If copies are totally blank then it most likely is not the drum. It is transfer to the drum. A charge wire is most likely the cause of these type symptoms. Not easy to do if you never have before. Exposure lamps being bad give a solid black copy symptom so I am pretty sure thats not it either. You have a charge corona inside that is probably what your issue is. If you know someone who is a tech they might restring it for you as a favor or take the unit to a local dealer to see how much they would charge to restring.

Hope that helps

Error code means something is wrong with the scanner of the copier, it could be the lens is not moving or the scanner is not finding HP. Also, are you getting blank copies? If so you have a blown scanning lamp.

Dose the scanning lamp come "ON" when you make a copy. If it will not come "ON" your scanning Lamp is blown and needs to be replaced. When the scanner lamp blows you will get blank copies..

Copies print all black

Make 1 copy with the lid open & verify that the scan lamp is lighting & that the scanner moves. A blown lamp is the most common cause for all black copies.
