Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Dark lines appear on copy..sometimes lines disappear... I mean copy is reasonably good sometimes. I am using a drum the other side end of which is damaged probably because the drum surface touches the lower (don't know technical part description) spare part portion. Can i still use the drum without dark lines on copy? the drum appears new if without the damage portion considering that it only copies 15 thousand

The lines are coming from the damaged section of the drum by the sound of things. There is no way to get rid of them without replacing the unit.

DIRTY COPIES BOTH SIDE OF PAPER


don't always believe what they say. just because its "supposed to " last a certain amount of time, doesn't mean it will. Once you get the insides dirty, its hard to get them straight again. Sometimes there is build up on the printer head from a leaky cartridge. I'm just guessing cause I had a similar brand that was brand new act up on me and because I was printing bold it started rolling the paper. I put it on economy printing to save toner and after a few runs, it cleared up. plus using a watermark helped but don't think that will help you in your situation.
Sometimes when I get a streak on one side its from light coming in from somewhere and it thinks its part of the image and prints it. If you make sure that your material is flat and not allowing light to come in or its firmly against the glass it might help.

I have a Canon PC 940. The copies are coming out with black lines ( 1/2 inch wide ) on the sides of the paper. Do I need to get the copier cleaned? Thank you.


Could be optics needing to be cleaned. First I would rule out the toner cartridge. If you have a spare swap it out or remove your current cartridge, turn it over and slide open the "gate" that covers the drum cyclinder. The drum should be clean all the way across it's surface. If you see toner on each end then that is where your dark sides are coming from. If the drum is clean then most likely you have dust building up on the optics mirrors. One test for this is to manually lighten the exposure control on the operation panel and then recheck your copy quality. This may cause the rest of the copy to be light but if the dark sides goes away then your optics are dirty.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Severe lines appear on copies. The cartridge is


Most likely it's the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge, turn it over and slide open the cover over the drum. The drum is the colored cylinder running from one side of the cartridge to the other. Do you see what appears to be the same streaks going around the drum? The drum should be completely clean and free of any lines or streaks. If it has lines or streaks then the cartridge is bad.
Only other possibility here would be the scanner glass. Make sure your streaks don't go away when making a copy from the glass. If they do you could have dirt or trash on your scanner glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Kyocera Mita 1635 Copier Printing Very Light Copies


Is one side lighter then the other side of the copy? Meaning uneven copy darkness? If so, I believe the problem is that one or both sides of the drum cartridge and the developer are not connected correctly. The two parts need to be close togather to make a nice dark copy. This model has a very wierd drum unit and has a defect that one or both side of the drum unit locking tabs break and you get very light or blank copies. It's some what coastly to replace the whole unit... That would be a worse case.... If it is just on one side you might be able to push on the cover on the side that is light. If the copies come out better. One side is broken..I would fold up some paper and make a wedge to push the catridges closer. Good Luck

Bold black lines across the paper when printing,scan or copy not on faxing


I realise this is probably too late for you Janet and you will have bought a new drum unit by now or replaced the printer! The three lines appeared on my print-out from a new drum I installed and after investigation it transpired that there was some toner residue that had dried on the drum (from testing at manufacture stage probably) and reprinted three bold lines on a sheet of A4. The solution is to use a soft piece of cloth and rub the lines off the drum through the gap at the front of the drum unit. The drum can be rotated by turning the gear cog on the side, then once the reside has been removed from the drum and it is clean, the lines will have disappeared. I wouldn't use any solution on the drum, just gentle rubbing should suffice.

Black line about 1 1/2 inches wide down side of faxes or copies


if your RECEIVED faxes look good, then leroyal is dead on. you will need a new CIS which stands for contact image sensor. if you have an authorized brother service center nearby, they may be able to do it for 100 to 150.00, depending on their pricing of course. if rec'd faxes are bad also, pull drum out and make sure the blue tab on top of drum is all the way to the right side, although that usually only leaves about a 1/2" black band.

Lines across the screen


the dark lines could be what is called hum bars these are caused by ground differences between cable and your AC ground. check to see if these lines appear using a dvd and removing the cable from the cable box. if the lines disappear then call the cable company and your electricain. in the mean time you can use a plug adaptor that is the 2 prong (ground less) until you can have the problem fixed. but don't use the adaptor as a fix, for your TV is a computer and needs proper grounds.
