Re: xerox xc1020

Is it a printer/copier? both prints and copies off the glass come out black?
yes...probably a problem in the drum/ CRU area
No- prints OK but copies black lift the lid and watch the exposure lamp...does it light up? does it move? Both of these scenarios would usually bring up a fault code, so I would still be inclined towards the drum unit.Pull the unit out and make sure no paper has sneaked up between the drum and the exposure slot, or even into the drum unit. another cause could be a broken corotron wire (very thin wire close to the drum usually behind a grid (charge grid) If it is a customer replacement drum unit (CRU) the charge grid will be built into the unit and will require the whole thing replacing.......

Xerox printing all black pages

You have no light output. The system places a charge, the image will remove charge (without image processing, the system leaves full charge ) (removes charge where no image is if negative processing)
EX: a copier has platen closed makes a copy because the cover has a white surface the light is reflected and removes charge from Drum. If you make a copy with platen open out put will appear black. Charge was not erased, toner is attracted to charged area.
Most systems use a small wire to place charge, depending on what development (pos or neg) with broken wire will also result in either a black or blank output. I would look for a broken charge wire.

I have a Xerox xc1020. it will not work. when i turn it on it moans, and than will try and warm up for a long time. can you help me

Wait a minute. I just answered this question to your name for an M20.. On an XC1020, that is different. If that is moaning I strongly suspect the toner cartridge if it just sits there and chugs without faulting out. Could be the drum . If it were the motor on that machien it would fault out. Now it depends on the model.
If it is an XC1020, I very strongly suspect the toner cartridge.
Again, let me know,we will start at the toner and drum on that one.

Xerox XC1020 White Bands running across copied page 4" apart

The metering blades in those cartridges go bad and do not allow the ink to get to the page. Look at the front of the toner cartridge, is should be a solid consistent black all the way across, if its streaky, not consistent all the way across replace the toner.
The other problem could be a dirty laser. If replacing the toner doesnt work let me know, I will tell you how to remove and clean the laser.

With "H4" flashing press:
1.Clear button
2.Auto button then again

3.Clear button
4.Auto button

It should be done quickly. If it's done quickly enough all lights on display should go off.

5.Enter number 14 (as if you are making 14 copies).
6. Press START/COPY button.

The machine goes back to normal. If not, thermistor on the fuser (heater) should be replaced.

Xerox xc1020 needs repaired

Make sure your toner cartridge has toner in it. It sounds as though the copier is trying to tone up. I dont know anyone in Missouri, but you could ship it to us in Indiana if you wanted to.
