Subject:
Prevention of blank image (modifying the shape of the laser shutter and applying grease to the laser shutter arm)
Detail:
<Symptom>
Since the laser shutter [1] is not opened when the toner cartridge is inserted into the machine, a blank image is output in
some cases.
[1] Laser shutter
[2] Laser shutter arm
<Cause>
When the toner cartridge is inserted, the laser shutter arm [2] pushes down on the laser shutter [1]. In case that the arm has
a scratch on its sliding surface, however, it is caught in the area [3] where the arm comes into contact with the shutter,
preventing the shutter from being opened.

[B] View of the opened laser shutter [2] Laser shutter arm

<Factory measures>
a. Modifying the shape of the laser shutter
Modify the shape of the laser shutter so as to prevent the shutter from being caught when the laser shutter arm pushes it
(A turnback is added to the edge of the area that contacts the laser shutter arm).
P-3 Laser shutter [A] Old type
[B] New type
b. Applying grease to the laser shutter arm
To decrease the sliding resistance of the contacting surface (P-2 [3]) of the laser shutter arm and laser shutter, apply grease
to the laser shutter arm.

(3/4)
c. Changing the shape of the laser shutter arm and applying grease to it.
To decrease the sliding resistance of the contacting surface of the laser shutter arm and laser shutter, change the shape of
the laser shutter arm. Additionally, apply grease to the arm.
P-5 Laser shutter arm [1] View of the rib in the new position
[A] Old type [2] View of the new shape of rib
[B] New type [3] View of the arm from which the rib is removed
d. Discontinuing application of grease to the laser shutter arm.
It was confirmed that the new shape of the laser shutter and laser shutter arm do not need lubrication by grease for normal
operation. From this, application of grease is discontinued.
Service Work:
When the foregoing symptom occurs, replace the laser shutter with the new type. In addition, remove the laser shutter arm
and apply a rice-grain sized amount of grease (PERMALUB G No. 2); about 30mg) evenly to the area [1] shown in P-4.
As for a machine having one of the serial numbers listed in “Affected Machines” below as “machines for which the shape
change of the laser shutter is carried out”, only application of grease is required: there is no need to replace the laser
shutter arm because the new type shutter has already been mounted onto them.
When replacing with the new type of laser shutter arm, there is no need to apply grease to it.

Prints blank page


Have you checked the print que
Printer problems can be a real hassle.
From time to time, due to document layout or settings on your computer, in your software of choice, or even on your printer, a blank page may get "printed" with the rest of your document.
Fortunately, this issue is a simple one to troubleshoot.
Click "Print Preview" when you are finished with your document and ready to print.
Observe your document.
If you see an extra, blank page, you have created a second page.
To delete the second page, close Print Preview, go back into the document and eliminate any blank lines in your documents that you may not need.
You may also find an inadvertent page break at the end of your document.
Place your cursor on its symbol and delete it.
Locate the symbol by clicking on the Show Formatting paragraph icon in the toolbar.


Circumvent this "ghost page" if you do not see a second (or additional) blank page in Print Preview.

Specify the number of pages you wish to print, within the Print dialogue box.
This is typically done by selecting the "Print From" option, then entering the page numbers desired.
If your document happens to be ten pages (without, of course, that final blank page), then enter in the "Print From" field the numbers "1-10".
This will print only pages 1 through 10, without an eleventh (blank) page.

Pages print but are totally blank.
  • The sealing tape might still be in the
    print cartridges.

completely removed from the print
cartridges."

  • The document might contain blank
    pages.
Solution "Check the document that you are
printing to see if content appears on all
of the pages."

Solution "To check the device, print a
Configuration page."

Prints blank pages


hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.
