Black stripe on copies

I have a Xerox XC1040 copier. It has worked great. The other day I turned it on to make some copies and experienced a black stripe about 2 inches wide on the copies. I went through their suggestions for cleaning the transfer Corotron but this has not helped.

Any suggestions?

Re: Black stripe on copies

Please be more specific.

Are the lines appearing in the direction the paper exits the machine, or from the front of the paper to the rear?

My xerox xc1040 keep streaking across the page, this is the second cartrige and is a few years old. This machine has not been used very much for its age. I take the cartrige out and shake it around, wipe...

You are going to need a new drum unit. This is the cartridge that is located right next to your toner cartridge. What is happening is the drum bleaning blade has gone bad and is not cleaning the drum properly. You can have these rebuilt but with parts and labor they usually end up costing more than just replacing the whole unit yourself. You can find them on the internet for around $125.00. Make sure if you order one that it is the whole unit not just the drum. For example a drum alone is around $40 - $50 VS the $125 for the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Xerox XC1040 that keeps jamming

sounds like the fixing unit needs to be replaced, give a call to any copier dealer that services lexmark and see what it'll cost for a replacement fuser, with that info you'll be able to tell if you want to fix or trash it.

Xerox model # XC1040 flashes H4 when turned on will not make copies ? code

H4 is a fuser error code. it basically means that the fuser is heating up. from what i can see the fuser lamp alone will be about $60.00. that would be the best case scenario if the rest of the fuser parts are ok. the upper fuser roller is 135.00 and lower 144.00.

XEROX CopyCentre C20-Blank stripe going down side

Open the cover and put a piece of paper on only half the glass, and make a copy. BLOCK the left side of the glass with the blank paper.
See where it is blank. Most of the times that is a dirty or haved up mirror in the scan head. One of the small mirrors in the black assembly under the lamp. When a digital copier scanner optics become dirty, the image in that area becomes very light .
