Sounds like a nozzle problem or printer head alignment issue. This can happen after installing new cartridges.

Your printer software should have a utility to realign the heads and clean the nozzles. Run it and it will likely resolve the problem.

We have just changed the photoconductor unit on our Epson Aculaser CX11NF printer. When we print or copy, we get coloured spots on the right hand side of the page


Oh-ho! The coloured spots are what is known as "traffic lights". To be sure these are the symptoms: You will have a black spot then a slightly larger gap then the three colours regularly spaced, the pattern will repeat every 150mm or so. If you print a black only page then only the black dot will appear, print with any colours and all four dots will be printed. It is caused by a tiny/slight scratch on the photoconductor (PCU) drum (usually caused by mishandling, a loose or foreign object inside the printer or even trying to print on stapled paper!). Polishing the drum using a very soft dry cloth can often help to get rid of the scratch, but remember to keep it away from any bright light as this will damage the sensitivity of the drum. The traffic lights will be in line with the scratch so concentrate your efforts in that area. Also, while the PCU is out, take a good look inside the printer for any loose or protruding objects, rotate the toner cartridges from above with the front cover closed (opening the front locks the cartridge carousel in position). I sincerely hope this helps as the only other remedy is to replace the PCU with a new one.

Faint area down left side of page


When you say "Cleaned the lens" I presume you mean the four LED print heads. Use a spirit to clean them with if the toner dust is hard to remove. I usually just use a finger and wipe the entire length. Make sure there is no foreign item laying on the drum top where the black plastic film is as the led head may not seat properly on it. Clean all the silver high voltage springs down the left side of the printer. They make contact with the drums. If you still have a problem then try printing solid colour blocks ie Yellow, Magenta ,Cyan and Black . This will identify which colour is giving the problem . Change that drum and all should be well.

Printer leaves light red marks on area of page not printed on


This is normally caused by the PC unit (photo conductor unit) you will see four of them sitting on the inside of the front cover if you open it. To check if this is the problem you can swap these around, so swap the magenta with another colour, then print something, if the problem have change to the other colour you will know this is the cause and the unit will need replacing.
Hope this helps

Smeary Printing


Hi.
Align the print cartridges by going to the mentenance/align cartridges tab - in the printer menu, then print a diagnostic/configuration page from the reports tab.

U'll find there all the colours that the printer is using along with other ones.

if there is a problem "after allignment" tell me

Horizontal lines


Depends on whether the "lines" are colored or just blank areas missing in the print . If it is blank areas , then most likely the laser scanner is dirty and the glass needs to be cleaned . If it is colored lines , then you most likely have a defective drum .
