Question about Xerox 8830 Copier

1 Answer

Copy reprints 1st 3rd of copy on 2nd 3rd of page and so on.

Not sure to how to describe this problem. I have shaken toner drum and emptied dump at end. Insptected drum and cleaned mylar strip - or something that looks like it as I had not removed the deal next to the toner.
It prints the complete copy, but it also has this faded hard to read repeat in the background. Like the 1st part of the image is not erasing as it copies.
It is an XC830. I have not used it that hard - but it does have some age on it. I hope you can help.. It seems ok otherwise and I hate to junk it if that is not necessary.

    Helloo Pomtek -- I'm not sure where this blade is located. I have tried to clean several things that look possible. But - while it helped, it has not solved the problem. I repeated the process but it made no difference. Can you tell me where this blade is located so I can clean it.?? thank you

The mylar strip is only to capture what the cleaning blade loses, you will have to clean the blade itself. Some blades will age without use, some will wear with use , and some will get paper fibres trapped under the blade know what happens when you get a bug under you windshield wiper?

Sharp 1641cs - Dark/black page after replacing drum & toner

Hi you have not said the toner type you replaced with though that will give not completely black copy. The problem may have been the drum unit installation. Make sure the charge unit over the drum service is present ie the one with a mesh wire like grid. If present, clean it or wipe with a soft clean and dry cloth. Clean the saw-tooth like metal plate inside that unit by slow blowing and make sure no toner particles are there. Finally screw the unit properly on the drum unit and your problem is solved.

When I put the disc in to be copies and then the blank discs i press the green start button and it display target drive not ready. How do I get it to copy onto the other discs??

One of the "target" CD-writers is not working -- either the "data" cable is not connected, or the "power" cable is not connected, or the drive itself (either the "spinning" motor, or the "laser") has failed.

Presumably, you don't have to fill "all" the trays, in case you only want to make a few copies of the "source" disk.
So, make a few attempts, with the "source" disk in the "source" drive:
1. put a blank disk into the 1st "target" drive,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st target drive is OK.
2. put blank disks into the 1st and 2nd "target" drives,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st and the 2nd target drives are OK.
3. put blank disks into the 1st and 2nd and 3rd "target" drives,
leaving the other targets "empty", and press the button.
If it works, then the 1st and the 2nd and 3rd target drives are OK.

... and so on

If you get a "failure", then you now know which of the "target" drives is the "bad" drive. Either replace that bad drive, or change the cabling inside the unit to "bypass" that bad drive, and put a sticky-label on the face-plate of that drive, saying "do not use this tray".

Xerox 416P faded copies

Remove the glass and thoroughly clean the lamp, mirrors and lens. Also the glass on both sides. If that does not work, remove the toner and drum, look inside the machine for a small opening about 8 inches long and a quarter inch wide. That is the laser window. It may also need cleaned. It is possible the laser needs to be removed and cleaned.
I am not sure, can you print reports on the p model? If so make a printed page and tell me if they look fine.
What you have to remember on a digital copier is when the optics get dirty , the image gets lighter.

A copy with a lighter image of the copy on the page

Do printed pages come out better than copies?
If they are the same, you may try another toner cartridge (especially if it is a remanufactured or compatible toner), otherwise, you need your optics cleaned (mirrors and lens under the contact glass)

Ghost printing

Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

Vertical Stripes on printed Page, Shaken Toner, Relatively new Belt (Green thing), cleaned the fuzer wire, cleaned the cleaner roller, has oil.

Depending on the type and model of your printer this could be several things mostly related to the cartridge or drum if you have a separate toner/drum system.. Since you have stated you have shaken the toner, I am assuming you have a laser printer. New belt, has me confused. Green thing leads me to think you are talking about the drum. If so, did you purchase a new toner cartridge or new drum cartridge?

Several components inside the toner or drum cartridge will cause vertical streaks. It depends on where these streaks are occurring and how wide the streaks are. We call these repetitive defects and they can be measured to determine which part is at fault.

Also, if this is a multi-unit machine (print/copy/fax/scan) Check the platen glass or ADf feed unit for white out. That has been a major culprit of vertical streaks on the page.

More specifics about the model of machine and cartridges being used would be helpful in trying to solve this problem for you.
