    The machine acts like it's copying, but when the paper comes out there is nothing on it. There is no error light on the machine.

    My copier won't put the image on the paper, the paper runs through just fine, but spits out blanks. How do I fix this?

  • reedii Jan 17, 2009

    I have to believe this is a manufacturing defect and I will check with canon to see whether they have a fix for these at their expense. I was able to get temporary relief by moving the lever located on the right side of the shutter area. It did not want to move initially but later freed itself. Unfortunately, it is now repeating this behavior and I am going to try to remove the entire shutter.

Reason : the shutter of the laser is not opened by the cartridge. (I had same problem, and solved it)

Open the door and remove the toner. look inside and you will see in the upper part a rectangular window in the metal bar. This window is shut by a metal plate behind when the door is open. Try to raise it with a knife. This is the problem. Now, this shutter is here only for legal reasons (security to prevent the laser beam going out when door open, but when the door is opened the power is shut so...). Cut a piece of plastic just the width of the opening, fold it at angle in the form or an L, then place it on the left side of the opening, so that the shutter can no longer go down. A piece of scotch to fix it in place and you are done.

Now, if it works and you are grateful, I am interested in empty cartridges.If you have some tell me. Thanks.

I had this same problem with my Canon Image Class 6550 where blank sheets were coming out of the copier. I noted that it was the metal shutter that was staying closed. The shutter is in the metal bar (about 1/4 inch by 4 inches long)when you open the copier and removing the toner cartridge. It moves up and down to cover the laser. To keep the shutter in an open position, what I did was grabbed the middle of this shutter with a hemostat (or long thin pliers), pulled on it a little bit to distort the shutter. Then I moved the shutter up to the open position. By distorting the shutter when I pulled it, it created a situation where friction will hold the shutter in an open position all the time. This way, you do not have to put any foreign substances into the copier to hold open the shutter.

PS: When I called Canon tech support, their solution was for me to buy another original CANON toner cartridge. These suckers cost $150 to $180. I was using a knockoff cartridge for $40, which now works fine.

Thank you dy23. Canon product support was useless resolving this known issue. Without your helpful solution, I would have been throwing this otherwise fine piece of machinery in the trash. What a waste that would have been. I will send you cartridges if you send me an e-mail: don.mckinnon@yahoo.com
