Re: Xerox PE16 Workcenter

If you print from a printer do you get the blank like?
if Yes, then you may have some dead LED's on the scanner (this will need replacement)
if No, then look at your scanner (small thin glass strip that reads the paper when being copied) and clean it. 9 times out of 10 there is some white-out or toner stuck to it, clean it and that should fix that.

hope this helps with the white line

thanks for rating

The streaks are typically a sign of a toner drum going bad, or possibly just dirty, or even caused by the toner being low, as you have mentioned it to be. 1 way I know to 'clean' the drums is to have the printer run multiple blank pages. If your software will not allow you to print blank pages, type a single character by using this little trick, hold down the ALT key, and type 2 5 5 on the number pad in a blank text document. This will allow you to print the "blank" document, I would suggest about 10 copies. This should help for a short duration, and doesn't use any toner.

Hope this helps!

your toner has nothing to do with sending/receiving faxes. If you can print to the xerox...something is wrong with the software..

Zerox workcenter m151 when i print i only get on both sies of page light coverage not readable copy if i copy with cover open i get two solid black strips do i neeed a new drum or is it something...

Your toner is empty and just not indicating it's empty.
There is a light sensor and windows through the cartridge. Sometimes there is a little ink left on the window and it doesn't report empty.
