PC-65 (Canon copier)

I have just installed a second A-30 Black Laser cartridge into my copier. I am getting a wide black smudge through the copy., even when I have no original on the copy plate. Can this be a cleaning issue that can be handled in house or is there a technical problem.

Re: PC-65 (Canon copier)

A smudge across the copy can be in many different areas.
Some ideas.
The drum cleaner may be the problem as you indicate.
It may be a piece of paper ripped of dragging across the surface of the paper causing the smudge.
Also the fuser roll coating may be very worn and causing that.
One thing to try that can show you if the defect is on the drum cartridge, is start to run a copy, After the paper feeds and this is timing, shut the machine off when you think the paper should be about half way through the copy cycle, then see if the copy defect is on the unfused page, If it is smeared before it reaches the fuser, it is in the cleaning section, if it is not smudged, then it is most likely the fuser rollers are needing replaced.
First look for a paper fragment in the path, step 2 is to shut the machine down in mid copy and see if the defect is there.
The fuser is the hot area of the machine in the exit area, If you can take a flash light and look in there and see if you observe wear or heavy toner buildup on a roller then obviously thats the problem.

Black spots on each page

A laser printer has its rollers (which I believe you said you cleaned...very important) and the cartridge you put in the printer has rollers too! Carefully check them and the wiper on the cartridge. If all of those things are clean, then you should get clean copy!

If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.
