Canon PC-860 Black & White

My Canon PC-860 Black & White Photocopier won't print properly after a paper jam.....the copies are almost invisible. This has happened before and each time was rectified by gently brushing the roller. I've tried this this time but to no avail. ....And why does this happen every time paper gets jammed ?...It's infuriating ! Help, please ! Thanks

    Hi rrralf

    My temperamental machine has fixed itself ! I believe it may have been a static problem. We kept brushing the roller and testing copy after copy, and then just suddenly the print returned to normal. Thank you for your input.

Maybe your transfer roller is shorting, not allowing image transfer from drum to paper. when you run a copier and stop it during process, is there a good , strong image on the drum. If so, either remove transfer roller, and blow it off good with a compressor air (STRONG PRESSURE) or blow it off in the copier. This may work. let me know. Sounds as tho electrical grid or image transfer problem.

    sounds similar to what i said,if theres a short in transfer, it will cause what you said. by the way, i,m 25 years my own business, not a rookie.

Won't photocopy / warning light flashing /

The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.

My copy machine will just print a totally black sheet of paper.

Pull out your toner cartridge, push back the drum shutter and see if the drum is coated in toner. If so, it is defective. Replace it and it will be fine.

*please rate me ;)

Canon PC860 - Paper Jam resulted in black horizontal lines in subseq.copies

If the blank ink still cames in the printer means that their still ink inside the cartridge, kindly check if there are papers left inside the printer when it was removed if there is you have to take it off.

Turn off the printer, delete the remaining files that is to printed on the printer dialog box by just double clicking the icon found at the bottom of the task bar.

Turn on the power of the printer, have a printer test to test if the pritned copy is good. Clean the head, or the nozzle of the printer at the maintenance tab.

If the problem still arises means the head align was damage or mess align that happend when the paper was remove forcely.

That's all
Thank you.
