I have a Cannon D320. Copies have roller marks on them. Can I clean rollers. Roller mark is in center of page top to bottom.

each and every machine needs to have a technician responsible for servicing and maintenance.
If you know where the marks are coming from then you can clean, because they mighty be coming from the drum and from the drum you just have to replace and not clean.
if from the fixing assembly need to consider:
1. if pressure roller or upper roller/fume does it have dirty or it is damaged when damaged need to be replaced if dirty, clean while it is hot with silicon oil(heat resistant).

Oce 7051 plain copier has dust or something on one of the rollers - prints have a trail of marks across sheet, repeating every 10 inches from top to bottom of page. Probably need to remove or access...

If the drum has marks on it, you might have to replace it.  Sometimes the fuser rollers can leave marks on them as well.
Check for lines on the drum first.  If they are there, it could need a drum replacement.

I closed the dryer door and there was a flash (like a big spark behind the dryer and now the dryer doesn't turn on

Sounds like your Motor went to fault and grounded out.
To check your motor:

Sounds like your problem may be a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

There are a few lights, If it looks like 3 dots in a triangle toner empty, if its one that looks like a cylinder drum needs replaced. and one that looks like a 8 lighting bolt paper jam. If you have removed all the paper and still getting the warnig check the flap on the fuser is moving smooth, open right side door and check the hot rollers above the drum. One place to look for hiden paper is just before it comes out of the machine you might get 2 inches that comes out and cant see it.

Replaced drum on Dell 1720dn printer. Where is

This should fix the drum light being on that 1720

Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer. Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit. Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit. Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stops. After POST wait for 5 seconds Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter. Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit. Cycle the power of the printer: Remove the power cable - Wait for 5 seconds - Plug the power cable back to the printer - Power the Printer on.

Minolta copier ep2152

If you are asking about a ep2152. That is a very old copier, they may not make part for it. Let's try, do you have what looks like a front view of a camera lite up orange or flashing? If so, you need a new IU unit/ drum & cln blade & developer most likely sold sepperate. I don't think they make the whole unit as one piece. I could be wrong. Try making a copy with the IU unit out. If the marks are on the blank page that comes out, it is in the fixing unit.You will need to replace the upper fixing roller & lower roller & cln roller. If you put the IU unit back in and the line is there then you have to rebiuld the IU unit. Good Luck....

Xerox 3001 Code A6

A codes are up top. Make sure the switches are not stuck down or broken. Test the machine in the long document mode, that asks for the paper first then the original. Usually an easy fix.

XD100 Workcenter Copy quality

If its is a fine line. Looking like a pencil line. See if it is there when you run it off the glass or through the document feeder. If it is only there when it is run throught the document feeder, the small strip of glass under teh document feeder had some contamination on it.
You may have something on the optics. Mirror or lamp carriages. You would want to clean those. The Drum cartridge could be bad. Take the drum out and see if it's on the drum.
The transfer wire on the lower part of the right hand door, just above the white rollers and may need cleaned.
Last and the least likely would be the fuser roller. That is the heated area just before exit area of the machine, You can look in there with a flash light and see if any of that roller is worn.
In order, I would think . 1, Drum, 2 Optiscs, 3. Fuser,4 Transfer corotron wire on the right door.
