Epson Aculaser C1100 - misaligned printing

Hi, great site by the way.

I have never gotten this printer, my Epson Aculaser C1100, to print correctly in regards to double sided material. If I have a cross dividing an A4 page in to 4 equal sections and I print it on both sides of once page the lines NEVER align correctly on both sides.

If I print on one side of the page and measure with a ruler, the margins are not the same at the top of the page as to the bottom of the page. Very frustrating, looks so poor when you are trying to print a nice poster or flyers.

I have tried countless hours to see if it is paper placement or jamming, but I cannot see how this occurs.

Can you help?

    Hi I have a DFX8000 epson printer connected to a COM port SCO Unix 5.0.7 server initially it used to work ok, but currently it is not alligning the print job as it used to. What could have caused this problem?. If I use DFX9000 on the same connection it is printing perfectly.

The paper tracking on the epson is not perfect. You may also notice that the paper can skew off / twist as it goes through, especially if printing on the rear side. Try printing a box aligned with all margins and you'll notice that it doesn't align with the paper edges.

Solutions:
a) The specific issue that you speak about can be compensated for in the "extended" settings on the prinproperties. You can "Offset the print" by a mm or so to adjust slight inconsistencies and get, for example two text frames to print back to back, lined up.
b) When printing the reverse side of paper, use in the general properties tab, paper type, "plain (back)". The printer then seems to compensate a bit for the fact that the now heated and curled paper needs to move through the mechanism.

Your application will actually override the settings of the printer, what i can suggest is for you to check if you are using the correct page length and margin setting in your software program.

Try using Laserjet 3 emulation driver as well

Epson Aculaser C1100 error code C0084. How is this code cleared.


Hi
The issue cause due to temporary "data error" that is easy to resolve. :-

  • A corrupted or interrupted print job, or:
  • A data or interface cable that is not connected correctly.

So, follow these steps:-

  1. Disconnect the printer from the data source
  2. Does the printer pass its ROM, RAM and Self Test checks?
  3. Test the printer standalone by printing a Status Sheet
  4. Cancel all pending print jobs on the network or computer
  5. Reseat and reconnect the data cable at both ends
  6. Test the printer

Poor printout / colors dont look exactly as they are supposed to


Some of these problems are addressed in the Service Manual p242 onwards with illustrations and correction procedure. You may have to talk it through with EPSON technical support/or obtain a technicians support. What is shown does not exactly fit your description so here's hoping.

Epson C1100 Print quality


no this is not a photoconductor problem. your fuser unit is faulty, it is not getting up to the correct temprature to "fuse" the toner to the paper hence why you are able towipe the toner from the page. Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
