A toner catridge leaked in my Canon PC921. I cleaned it up and installed a new cartridge, but now my copies are dark on one side, light on the other.

on analogue copiers, if You have dark copies, that means that You need to clean optics ( mirrors and lenses - maybe some toner get to them ) or check/clean/replace the fixing film!

Regarding poor copy, clean/vacume/change the transfer roller ( beneath the drum unit - on paper path from drawer/bypass, before fixing unit ).

Hope that helps!

Poor copy quality - smudgy copies - changed toner - still the same.

check your OPC drum life, if you have a poor quality with a new cartridge installed (light copy, dirty copy) the opc drum must be replaced, check you machine counter if you have reach 100k copies you need to replace the drum, if you are using a new OPC DRUM, you need to clean the machine, you have to call for service because there is many parts that muat removed to clean properly.

What causes a white streak and faded print to appear on copies?

Most often on the PC940 this means your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. To prove this is the cause, just remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it relatively level, shake it side to side a few times. This will re-distribute the remaining toner in the cartridge. Re-install and make a copy. The black streak/faded copy should be much better. If so then I would go ahead and get a new cartridge on the way.

I replaced the cartridge and now it wont copy anything

If you mean blank copies then you either have installed a bad cartridge or perhaps you did not pull out the toner seal tape from the new cartridge before you installed it. If not then just remove the new cartridge and check one of the 2 ends of the cartridge for a small tape sticking out. Pull that out of the cartridge which will release the toner supply to the developer roller. Then re-install.
If you did this already then test for a bad cartridge by shaking the old toner cartridge back and forth a few times and put it back into the machine. It should work well enough to at least test for blank copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Copies are dark

No. It would most likely be the opposite.

The stripes could be caused by contamination of the dev roller, fixing rollers or marks on the drum.

You could also clean the laser ****-glass.

Printing illegible, very faint

I run "clean printhead" and that solves the problem when it happens to me.

Mx700 only printing in B&W

This is a software problem, do uninstall and re installation of the printer software on your computer and that should do it...
