Hello,

Check to make sure that your ribbon is not folding on the left. Have seen many printers with that ribbon guide off a little causing that issue.

If this is not the case you can try adjusting your platen. If that doesn't work, Shuttle are know to go out. They have coils behind the frets which lose resistance over time. If this is the case the shuttle will need to be replaced.

If you have any questions or need parts or printers please contact me we are an ASR for Printronix. We also offer free technical support.

Thanks,

My copies have a thin blank streak about 1 inch in on the left side. the streak is about 1/4 inch wide and goes down the whole sheet of paper


Start a print or copy, and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at the drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. If not then it is in the fuser area.

Clean the loose toner up with a dry lint free cloth.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

WHAT DOES A L1 MEAN


The L1 is indicating a scanner lock.

1. Turn machine off.
2. Make sure the scanner lock is unlocked. This is a clear plastic knob. (it is located on the left hand side of the machine under the document glass in the copy exit area - check your manual for a picture.)
3. Turn machine back on, watch scanner to see if it moves.
4. Try a copy.
5. If you still get an L1 then it might need service because the scanning bar is jammed.

This also is a fix if you are getting blank copies.
Hope that helps...
