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.

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!

Every time i try to copy a letter but it comes out full black colour. what is the problem?


Does it do this both through the document feeder and off the glass?
Are you using a coloured original?
Try adjusting the exposure to the lightest setting.
Also try cleaning the main corona unit(instructions are in the box that the toner came in)

I'm using Mac OS 10.5.6 and the Kyocera KM-3035 prints my documents with missing letters, words, sometimes whole paragraphs. I've uninstalled and re-installed the driver to no avail. What else can I do?


use the generic print driver in mac and tune it with this tutorial also set the press printer on the copier and set emulation to kpdl auto... also see if you can make the driver spool...

if that doesn't work... then try moving a zipped 10 mb file from one pc to another on your network... make sure one pc or laptop is connected where your copier is... if you open the zipped file and its corrupted... then the problem isn't your copier... its your network...

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
