Faded print on right hand side

Hi Tracy,
If faded prints happen even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer.

I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Color Printer with same issue.
Actually, faded prints are due the the dust/ toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. Hence the image is not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer.
Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer serviced by any printer repair/ service professional. (Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors).

Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know
Good Luck!

Epson aculaser c1100 not printing right hand edge

The problem may well be that the drum needs cleaning. There is a plastic flap on the rhs of the machine. Open that and you can pull a long lever out. You also need to let down the front cover and pull out the lever on the right hand edge that faces you. Then extend the long lever at the side as far as it can go and push it in and out a few times. This should solve the problem. Put the front lever back and close the cover. It took me ages to find this - Epson are not good at highlighting it,.

No print on the RHS of page using Epson Aculaser C1100

Two things to check,
1- clean the laser by opening the front cover, pull forward the green lever on the R/H side, take off the little panel on the R/H side of the printer and pull out/push in the lens cleaning "stick". Replace panel and push the lever back in, close the front and try a test print.
If that didn't work:
2- Open the lid, lift the orange lever and remove the photoconductor. Be careful with it as it is easily scratched. Inside the printer rotate the toner cartridges and check that the cartridge lock levers are fully locked as even a couple of millimeters can block the laser.

Hope this helps.

Epson Aculaser C1100 - misaligned printing

Your application will actually override the settings of the printer, what i can suggest is for you to check if you are using the correct page length and margin setting in your software program.

Try using Laserjet 3 emulation driver as well

Printing Problem

If you have have followed the directions for cleaning the printhead (blue lever on right side of printer - move wand in and out completely several times) then it sounds as if your drum unit (photoconductor unit) has developed a problem and should be replaced. PLEASE let me know if this solved your problem or you need additional assistance before rating this solution. Thanks Ed
