I rarely carry a vac any more. Only if i spill toner on carpet or maybe suck out a dv unit. The new copiers run so clean, i carry a 32-3 gallon refillable air tank. You can refill it at any gas station or if you have a compressor. Take out all the guts and engine (drum , developer units. And give that baby agood blowig out. It wont hurt it and its the fastes way to do a pm there is. I,ve been iindependent sevice for 25 years and go out side the standard rules. Youll find out how efficient it is once you do it. Thatll clean that baby out, especially if your packin 80 pounds of air pressure. You can get a tank with all the attachments at farm and fleet, menards, ar any other store like that.

1- the best way is to get a silicone based rag. It cleans and lubricates, DO NOT TOUCH DRUM, or transfer roller.
2- And/or use a vacuum that can handle small particles. regular household vacs WILL NOT WORK, the toner is too fine and will blow through the bag in the air.
3- It depends on where there is toner left, as long as it's not in the paper path and will not leave residue on the paper,it's not going to harm the machine (just looks filthy)

Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.
