Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

1 Answer

Leaves about a 1/4 inch space down middle of paper.

When I take drum out there is a 1/4 inch circle all the way around the drum, like it is getting to much toner, but it leaves a blank line on the copy all the across the copy. Just replaced drum and toner last week 3/1/08.

    There was something white stuck in it that finally worked its way out onto the paper. Now it works fine. The drum had been sealed with a piece of tape and I think it may have been tape.

That is the cleaning assembly in the drum cartridge.Either something slipped into the cartridge or the blade tucked. Sounds more like something is in the cartridge blocking the drum from both cleaning and charging/

My HP3505 we just installed a ne black toner, now when we print it leaves a small line about 3 inches in from right side of paper every 1 inch. all the way down. Is this becasue or drum is dirty


if you have not replaced the image drum (fuser) after three or four toner replacement changes, you will need to replace the fuser assembly to avoid unwanted lines and grainy or faded prints.
it is also a good idea to replace the rollers as well, if they have not been replaced either

RM1-2763-020CN fuser assembly worth about $200 with exchange of your old fuser

RM1-2727-000CN, worth about $10-$15

please send me 4 thumbs up

A thick line in the middle of the paper is coming on the xerox copies

If the line goes to the very edge of the copy its the fuser or drum if there is a line that leaves a 1/4 inch to the edge of the copy then its in the optics. -Carl

HP 2840 will not print on 3 inches of left side of page

Take the toner cartridge out, shake it back and forth, and turn it around in a circle a few time. Put it back in the priter, and print. Order a new toner cartridge.

If this is an inkjet printer, ignore this response.

My Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer prints horizontal lines (about 1/8-inch long) at right hand edge of paper. They are spaced at about 2.5 inches apart down the page. Help!

It is most likely that your Laser Unit is failing. It could also be dirt on the electrodes of the drum unit and machine body or the ground terminal on the paper tray is bent. It is best that you visit you local Brother Authorized Service Center for additional help.

take out cartridge and force paper to take out sometimes it is needed to tear paper to take it off but no problem, main sensitive for this type of printers is cartridge, also find if any "jam lock" is presented to ypur printer and unlock.
