Poor Print Quality on Epson Aculaser C1100N

Any black printing that my C1100N deals with now is of a really bad grainy quality. If I send the same text document but for instance as blue or red, it prints perfectly. I thought this might be a K Toner issue but I have now tried three toners all new and stored perfectly but the problem still happens. I've changed the Photoconductor Unit but to no avail. Black printing is terrible it looks grainy and more grey than black. Is there a fuser or a part that controls the black fusing only that may be at fault? It seems a mystery. I'm stuck without the printer so could really use some good clear advice on how I can fix this.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Poor Print Quality on Epson Aculaser C1100N

Sounds like the black dev unit is worn out. Easy enough to change yourself if it is out of warranty. If it is in warranty get Epson to do it for you.

Toner is full but printing quality is poor

Depends on what type of poor quality you have. Are there repeating defects? A bad fuser, bad photoconductor drum will both cause problems, even if the toner is full.

Poor quality black in printing

If you touched the electrical contacts on the cartridge the high voltage used could be taking a shorter path to ground. Try cleaning the contacts on the cartridge and inside the printer with a lint free cloth and some 99% isopropyl alcohol then wipe dry.

Right hand side page print quality very poor, almost unreadable

this is cause of the lens is dirty with toner droping..
open the front cover and on the right side, there is a level for you to pull out.. at the right side of the printer, open the small cover and you will be able to find a cleaner. To clean..pull out the holder few times.. by applying slight pressure..that will clean the bottom lens..and u should be able to print out fine now..

Epson aculaser c1900 error code e014

Error code 014 indicates that the cooling fan on the power supply board is not operating when the printer is switched on. Does n't explain the poor print quality though. I suspect it is a worn 2nd BTR roller (the black foam coloured roller inside the rear door). To check this send a coloured print through and press hard against the rear door during printing. If the print quality improves then it is a worn roller, if it doesn't let us know and we'll try something else.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Epson r230

hello babu,
the problem is not with the printer, problem is with your general knowledge, to print on cd/dvd surface means you have to stick the sticker (cd label sticker) on the cd, then put the cd on the printer to print.
bye bye
hope u will soon understand......

My EPSON Aculaser C3000 is ghosting

Could be any of the following:
* Bad toner - try a different toner
* Unsuitable paper - try a different paper
* wrong software drivers - download the latest drivers for your operating system from the manufacturer's site.

Epson Aculaser C1100N - Black Toner problem

IF the problem persists with an original cartridge then the factory settings should be restored refer the manual or go through the settings in the control panel . minimise the tone of printing . If toner is getting accumulated in the printer then it might be due to refilled toner not the original cartridge . use the original cartridges
