Question about Canon NP 6035 Copier
We have a canon np 6035, and every 4 months or so the brightness of the prints begins gradually getting darker, so we call a service tech in, who does something with a tiny hole in the front of the unit to adjust the darkness. We pay him a minimum of 100 dollars per visit. Not very cost effective for something he spends 2 minutes working on. I have searched the internet for a service manual to tell me what that mysterious little hole does, and how we can begin adjusting this ourselves without paying out the nose :)
Anybody know how we are supposed to use this little hole of mystery?
He is probably adjusting the exposure voltage. If you take a flashlight and look inside the small hole, you should see either a "+" or a "-" on a plastic part. Turning it clockwise will increase the voltage, and counter clockwise will decrease the voltage.
If you are going to do this, I would suggest using a plastic screwdriver to turn the "Pot" (Potentiometer)
Doing with by yourself will be a hit or miss effort. Also it is not recommended doing this without knowing what you are doing.
FYI, If you are going to turn the "Pot" on your own, I would suggest turning it very little and testing a copy, and then doing this again and again to make sure you are helping the situation or hurting it.
Hope this helps.
If I have helped, please post a feedback and a rating towards me.
