Re: bad copies

Is the white bar running vertical or horizontal on the page, and is it consistently the same or is it sporadic?

Paper comes out white. No text. Reports will print but I can't scan anything for copying.

The document scanner has light bar which Canon calls the "Contact Image Scanner" FH7-7565-000. It is probably bad.
This unit is under the glass, so I'd recommend to get a service company to do this.

When we turn machine on, it seems to be stuck in the warm-up phase. It won't allow you to copy but just incessantly does a little back-and-forth of the light bar thingy. da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da. or...

The light bar bumping back and forth means the machine is trying to reference the exposure lamp intensity. Usually this is solved by cleaning the white reference strip which is under the plastic edge guide. The guide is the part with the document size numbers on it. Removing this piece and cleaning the white strip under it will usually solve this problem.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I just replaced the toner on my Xerox copier 2 weeks ago. Most of my copies now still showing white lines running vertical though them. Some copies do come out OK though. What is the problem?

Most likely cleaning the scanner and laser will solve your problem.
When the scan mirrors and the laser window and mirrors are dirty that will cause light copies.
If it is an older analogue machine, there are charge and transfer wires that would also need to be cleaned. If it gets worse the longer you run the machine then the charge and transfer wires are most likely the problem
What model is the machine? I can help you in more detail if I knew that.
Light copies should be pretty easy to resolve.

Light copies

You enter the buttons in this order. " menu" " pound" 1934, the machine will come up with a T or tech on the screen, you have to then press the machine settings button then scroll to maintenance, press enter, go to adjust shading, place 5 white pirces of paper on the glass and run the procedure.
I doubt though that without removing and thoroughly cleaning the scanner that it will work properly. Those mirrors and the glass haze up badly and need to be cleaned to clear up copy quality.
to remove from tech mode once you do shading. Just POPO the machine. ( Power Off Power On )

Shaded backround on pages Xerox 5830. What could be the cause?

2 things primarily.
1 is dirty optics. Remove the glass, and the black optics tub. clean all the mirrors the lens and the lamp and the surrounding area around the lamp.
2. The copy cartridge may need replaced.

If the backgroung remains pretty consistant, it is most likely the optics.
If the backgroung get worse as the machine runs, or is different every other page, the problem is the copy cartridge.
