Question about Canon C130F Black and White Copier

Actually a Canon PC-65, problem follow-up

I Thank you for your prompt response. On further testing with your suggestions I have noted that the toner buildup appears to be on the cartridge drum. The plate, lenses and paper paths all appear functioning well and tested out. I should reiterate that the model of copier I am working with is a Canon PC-65 (an older small personal copier) which I could not find on your web site. The toner cartridge is an A-30-L black. I think what I need to understand is the principle that is in play that attracts the toner to the drum as this appears to be what is malfunctioning. When copying, the original will copy and the large central smudge line appears to overlay the text copy.
Thanks again.

Re: Actually a Canon PC-65, problem follow-up

El problema es que una fuente de luz incide en el tambor fotosensible o este es expuesto a luz fuerte, por eso aparecen manchas, se debe manipular en lugar obscuro y/o buscar la fuente de luz indebida dentro de la maquina, despues de unas horas de reposo dentro de la maquina se restablece la impresion normal.

The canon PC 65 and the Canon PC 11/12 . If the cartridge is printing with a black smudge, then check the cleaning blade located inside the toner cartridge.
It the drum is cleaning, then check the fuser roller at the exit of the machine.
There is also a place u can get parts for these as well and thier parts is real cheap.

How to reset inkje even with new refilled cartridge

Regarding your recent inquiry about the Canon 240 (black) or 241 (color) ink cartridge ink alert/error condition and the inability to print to your Canon MX452 printer, to reset the cartridge ink low/empty alert message condition, depending on your printer model, we suggest you follow the documented procedures below and/or provided on Inkjet411 at the following link.

Essentially, in most cases, all you need to do is press the 'Stop/Reset' button (triangle symbol inside of a circle) for 5-8 seconds and the ink error ("ink has run out", etc.) indicators should extinguish; two common reset procedures are provided below (please refer to both videos):

Canon 30/31/40/41 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions:
Canon 50/51 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions:
Canon 210/210XL/211/211XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions:
Canon 240/240XL/240XXL/241/241XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions:
Canon 245/245XL/246/246XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions:

If you have already attempted the 5-8 second printer reset without success, then refer to WORST CASE SCENARIO section below.


NOTE 1: Providing you can still print, you will need to wait until the "ink has run out" message appears on your computer, before activating the 'Stop/Resume' button for 5-8 seconds. However, if printing is not permissible, then please keep reading....

NOTE 2: If you are able to print the internal self test print, this will demonstrate that the ink cartridge is 'at least' partially functioning. If this is the case, then we suggest you continue printing until the software prompts you to press the 'Stop/Reset' button for >5 seconds. For poor print quality performance issues (as you indicated in your inquiry), we suggest you run a nozzle/cartridge clean test from your Canon software, followed by printing our 'Ink Recovery Test' print:

NOTE: To rule out connectivity issues, please ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables (point where the cartridge connects to carriage inside the printer) and BOTH ink cartridge rear electrical contact surfaces are thoroughly clean before proceeding:


      If, after performing the suggested 'reset' procedures above, you still have an error condition which prohibits computer/host based printing (or permit copy/scan functions), then the ink cartridge probably has internal electrical damage (micro-electronics failure); such a failure is unrelated to the ink cartridge refilling process. Typically, when the cartridge fails the problem is 'masked' by the ink out/empty condition so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process (i.e. typically ~2 years from original manufacturing date). Refer to picture at bottom of this page:

      If, following a reset of the printer via the 'Stop/Resume' button, printing is permitted but the 'Ink Low' indicator continues to be lit then one of the inks cartridges may be suffering from marginal internal electrical performance - a potential failure of the cartridge may eventually occur which will prevent printing.

      CAUTION: Be advised, the use of Canon compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations which may contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Canon original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

      Canon 240/241 Ink Refilling Services & Additional Cautions:


      If you do need to purchase a new ink cartridge (to save on ink costs), we suggest you try a USA remanufactured ink cartridge from as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating and come with a 1-year warranty.

      Alternatively, if you are interested in the top 'refill friendly inkjet printer models', our suggested list is posted on-line and our internal labs have verified there are no issues (in ink compatibility or color output) with all of these models:

The copier has a white mark down the center of the copy

Open up the machine and remove the toner cartridge. Keeping the cartridge somewhat level, simply shake it from side to side to re-distribute the toner inside the cartridge. Re-install the cartridge and test. Keep in mind if this solves the issue then your toner cartridge may be getting low on toner.
This will resolve this issue 90% or more of the time.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
