Question about Xerox WorkCentre PE16 All-In-One Laser Printer
When both scanning and copying, part of the copied page or scan area, comes out VERY anemic and almost unreadable. The problem does not exist for incoming faxes.
Your scanner glass, mirrors and lens need to be cleaned.
There is an adjustment you can try.
Press in order. Menu #1934. That will enter diagnostics.
On your menu scroll around to find maintenance, then scroll to Shading adjustment.
Place 5 pieces of paper on the glass and press enter until it runs the shading adjustment. That is the scanner calabration.
That can help. But most likely the mirrors and lass are hazy.
Unlike an old copier where dirty optics showed up as a dark image, dirty scanners see less light reflected from your document and therefore print out what they see which can be streaky, faded and very very poor gray scale.
If you want me to I can send you the steps in disassembling that machine, but it does require pretty much disassembling the machine and that scanner head, you can break the lamp easily.
