Question about Kyocera Mita KM-3035 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Produces Light Copies

Our Kyocera KM 3035 copier produces very light copies, much lighter than the originals. We first tried changing the default setting on the auto exposure from 0 to +1, then +2, then to +3 with no noticeable improvement in copy darkness. At +3 the background (white area) of the document was a bit more grey than at the 0 setting. We then tried setting the default setting to -1, then -2, then -3 again with no noticeable change in copy lightness. On the advice of our copier leasing company, we replaced the drum and the fuser roller, but that had no noticeable improvement - the copies are still extremely light. Your advice is much appreciated.

Re: Produces Light Copies

Have you considered changing or checking the toner cartridge?
Does it display a low toner light?

I had a similar problem with a copy machine, where ALL the settings were correct and the toner was light.

The problem was the toner cartridge, the toner was caking because of the temperature. All it took was a good shake at the toner cartridge and it worked.

Also, check to see if the scan bed is messy, a good cleaning the the scanner bed should work as well.

Hope That helps!

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

We produce a small magazine of 20 pages (A5) using open office writer. The problem is that when we print 200 copies on the Kyocera 3035 it seems to send each copy to the printer in sequence taking well...

for printing 4000 pages in a hour or hour-and-a-half, that is not bad. it could be better.
the changes in the open office not in the printer. Try to send the print job to the printer with spool on and uncheck the print the last page first.
