Scratches on card when printing


Hello. There is a difference between horizontal and vertical lines. Horizontal lines means you might have burned your headset. If the lines go all the way horizontally and the line has the same thikness, you should replace the headset.
If its irregular lines you probably have one of the following problems:
a) Too much temperature in your printer driver(Go to printer settings and play with the darkness setting until you reach a good printing)
b) You are printing grey colors, which are always a problem with Datacards
c) Have a look at your supplies, maybe you are buying a not so-standard brand and the cards have some polution

Bizhub C652 has horizontal lines.


its important to find out whether the \'lines\' are in scan direction/ or only through Radf or only from scan glass,

if the lines are only showing when documents are fed throught the Radf, then the problem lies with the document scan plate( left of the main glass platen (about 2" in width)) or with the scan plate blade cleaner

if the lines ONLY appear when copying from the Glass then the issue lies within the optics (probably nothing more than a clean will be needed)

another question would be to ask if the lines are solid (black line overprinting image) or if they are \'missing\' lines where the image has failed to copy, sometimes it can be hard to work out which side the fault lies,so try shaded greys as a copy original .

if the scan lines are appearing on both Radf and Glassplatten ,mode then the issue may be dirty optics/ccd sensor or it could e an indication of the ccd failing or image control pwb in error while interpreting the image file.

what to do

1) place a grey sheet of paper in the Radf and have the copier photocopy both sides of the original and print to single sided sheets ( so the printer turns the original over to complete the task)

observe the result.

2) have the copier photocopy directly from the platten glass- single sided.

observe the result.

ckeck to see if the error has appeared on both sets of prints ,

if the error has only appeared in the first set of prints then the issue may be a tiny DOT on the slit glass (left of platten) - a dot on this glass will indeed appear as a Line as the original is scanned across the glass.

hhope thhis helps

My printer is not printing all the horizontal lines


First try to copy and if copy works fine, means the hardware is fine and issue with the driver.
Do right-click on printer icon and select delete.
Once deleted, run the installation disc and click on add a device, follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Open printers and faxes window and then do right click on printer icon and select properties, click on print test page.
Check if it prints fine, if yes try to print from other application. I hope it will work.

How do I remove lines


I had the problem of the horizontal grey lines with some pixels of pink. I ran the dry head cleaner a few times and the lines became solid grey with the sound now skipping worse than before. I cried, cleaned again, then played the tape. I did this about 4 times and still had no luck.

I then decided to try to record with a new tape around the room to see what would happen. After recording I played the tape back and it worked perfectly. I then went back the old tape that would not play properly and it worked fine! Seems like when I used the record button after cleaning it a few times everything worked fine, wierd.

Hope this might help someone.

Horizontal White Banding


Most likely cause is that a roller has degraded during storeage. Measure the distance from the centre of the first band to the second and from the center of the second band to the third. If this dimesion is fairly constant you can work out exactly which roller is causing the problem. The most likely culprit will be the Photo Conductor Unit. This will give a large dimension - (approx the 29cm??) A service manual should give you the dimensions (circumferences) of the rollers within the machine. If you have a spare pcu around, put it in and see if it makes ANY difference.
