    When printing the green comes out faint and the blue has a tint of red. Each toner shows ample ink and I have taken each one out and shaken it. Still not printing the right colours

    I don't know about any offset in my case, but the printing effects are the same on my C900. I have black text if printing in monochrome, and only some shades of blue (mostly), rarly red or yellow.



    Epson Status Monitor 3 reports that the printer have about 25% drum cartridge left, and about 33% left of each color - maybe slightly more black. So it can't be those basic problems.



    I have tried rotating the timing roller mentioned here, bit by bit, with no results to the better.

Hi
I believe this is a timing problem, you have done alot yet the same problem recurs . Compare the toner drum assembly holder positioning with another similar printer to justify its timing. Remove this holder drum and inspect the metallic contact tracks behind it.

keep me posted on this

Ink is faint


two possiblities
1)not enough ink for the saturation of the media
2) media is not correctly saturated by the ink
sounds like the same issue- let me explain
your image may be purposely printed light because of 'ink save printing'( driver cuts down reqired ink levels to give a draft print.)
or your problem may lie with the paper type itself,
firstly have the machine print off its internal demo page ( read user manual to find how to print)
this print being held by the printer cannot be affected by external controllers, if the demo page looks nice aand even and strong in colour then your issue is software related and you should have a look at how the pc is handling these documents before they get to the printer.
if the demo image is light then you have a problem inside the printer
if it is the latter please re-post as internal demo page printing light in colour

Oki C3100 - v poor print quality


Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

Printer not printing properly


When you changed the cartridges, the printer automatically prits a test / calibration page. This page must be placed in the scanner, then you have to press the "scan" key (the green one). It will calibrate an align the system. Then you'll be able to print.

Likely your purge unit needs cleaning...

Make sure by printing out a test page from printer (not from computer).

If test page is good, you have a software issue. If test page is bad, you need to clean your head and/or purge unit.
