Question about Canon imageRUNNER 5000 Copier
I have had a couple of service calls regarding copies printing of the top of the page. It only happens with 11x17 paper and on the 2nd side of the sheet. The last time a technician was here he replace a tiny motor in the duplexer unit. It worked OK for about a week, but now the problem is back.
Hello kaymatt. I would truly like to help you and I have some questions and ideas that may do that. But as I am sure you know troubleshooting a problem remotely can be tough. I am game for the fight! :-) AND..... if nothing else this can help you help your tech diagnose the problem! I will proceed on the fact that you say that the problem only occurs on 11x17. Is it consistent? Is every image produced on 11x17, 2nd side, off the page (mis-registered)? Is the amount of misregistration consistent? That is to say off by the same amount. The reason I ask is that your copier is a digital device and therefore scans the image and converts it to a a stream of data that can be manipulated any number off ways prior to being produced on the paper. It can be enlarged,reduced,both simultaneously,shifted,reversed all because for a moment in time the image resides in memory waiting to be reproduced as per a number of instructions that the customer or the technician can alter. There is a software setting that the tech can access that sets the alignment of the image to paper. There are adjustments for left to right,up and down, magnification and more. All of these software adjustments can be made independently for 1st side and 2nd side. In fact have to be from time to time. I am sorry to be so long winded, but I bet you see where I am headed. I truly hopes this offers some help. If nothing else you just got some free amusing factoids! :-) Good luck and let me know if this helps.
