Question about Canon PC1061 Copier

1 Answer

The copier has started making very dark copies even when I adjust the exposure. I did clean the glass but this did not help. Why is this happening? It is a few years old. I have never changed the toner.

Have you tried to clean the mirrors under the glass. If they get dusty this will cause dark copies. Hope this helps

My copies are not very dark


Is the problem only with copies? Does the machine also print light?
If is it copy only, remove the glass and clean the lamp and mirrors in the scanner.
If it is both copy and print, then you should clean the laser shield glass and replace the developer.

I have a FP7113 it only makes dark copies


dark copies you mean there is a dark background but image is still there?
it is usually happens when all mirrors and **** glass becomes dirty. you should clean it
well if you mean an image with pure black copy output, probably your exposure lamp is busted or the thermostat is open. :)

Cannon 6 RE PC gives black copies


does the lamp under the platen glass turns on when copying? if not you might need a new exposure lamp...but if you get an image but its very dark, if you are mechanically inclined you can clean the mirrors and lens and the bottom of the platen glass because after many years of use dust will make the optics dirty and cause the copies to be very dark. hope this helps.

Problem: Minolta EP2080 copier prints all dark


The base exposure adjustment is out on adjustment, there is an small access cover inside the front door. remove the phillips head screw, and the cover should expose the tech adjust area, in there you should find a trim pot marked EXP. set the exposure to manual center, then adjust the pot until the copies look good.

Hope this is of some help.

Cannon PC1061 making dark copies


OR you can do it yourself.

your problems seems to be Dirty Mirrors.

Your copiear has 6 mirrors that need to be clean up. 5 of them are kinda easy access. the other needs to be clean thru something thiner than your fingers. (you can see the mirror but no way you can reach it).

Now dont worry (not yet) about that 6th mirror since THEORICALLY it doesnt get dirty.

So try first to clean up the other mirrors. and see what happens.

They are located below the platen glass (remove it) and be careful with the lenses (do not touch them). clean everything that seems to reflect light Or images.

If nothing changes you may want to try out with a new cartdrige. Your drum may be done.

Adjustment program


Try cleaning the Auto Exposure sensor, or disabling the AE feature in standard settings. Some copiers have exposure calibration in standard settings too. Increasing the lamp intensity may cause further premature wear down the process line. (What machine have you got?)

Dark Copies


Jim, A couple of things: 1. OEM (Canon original) toner cartridge or remanufactured/compatible? The first place to start is always with the toner cartridge when image problems occur. Pull the cartridge out and draw back the drum cover. Check to see if the drum is a nice "clean" blue color or if the lines and spots are on it like you described. (These two areas should be handled by someone with experience in copy service) 2. The next thing would involved cleaning under the copy glass. Build up from dust, etc causes a "fogginess" that makes the machine try to adjust the intensity of the exposure lamp to conpensate for this. 3. Also could be a bad upper fuser roller if you started having any paper jams when to paper exits.

Your problem is most likely caused by dirty optics. Place a sheet of paper on the glass & make 1 copy with the lid up. Look under the glass at the mirrors on the scanner & see if there is any dust on them. If so,turn the copier off & unplug it from the wall, remove the glass & wipe off the mirrors with a DRY cotton rag. There are 3 mirrors on the scanner assy. There is also three mirrors under the lens cover that should also be cleaned. After cleaning the optics, make a test copy.If your copies are still to dark, press the additional functions key & select exposure adjustment. You can lighten/darken all copies by changing this setting. If you have any problems or questions my email is bspier@carlsonsupplies.com Good Luck!!
