Heres a few ideas for you... Do you get a error code? Dose the scanning lamp turn "On" How about is the primary corona unit in all the way? If the scanning lamp does not come on you have a blown lamp or thermal fuse. Do you get a small part of a image? It could be that the power cable for the scanning lamp is cut or broken ? It is a older model of Minolta, but one of the better ones. It could also be the primay corona unit is not in all the way. Or what use to happen is that the Grid would fall off the unit. It looks like a metal grid, it could also be the post corona wire is broken. It could also be the HVTDC pcb, but you have transfer current. It could also be the primary Block in the back of cth developing unit. I would start with the simple stuff first. Goog Luck

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:

Printer produces a poor copy


remove cartridges , take a q-tip w/alcohol and clean out ink ports where they drop ink onto the paprer the ports could be clogged with dry ink , thus preventing the new ink from reaching the paper. after you clean out the ink ports re-install the cartridges, and do alignment proceedures again this time color should be restored

Black splatters all over paper


Have you changed the cartridge? Sounds like a bad seal after it was refiled or the nozzle went bad on the black ink. Try replacing the cartridge.

Canon PIXMA MP500 New Black ink cartridge produces no ink


If you don't use it very often the black could have dried in the printhead, and you will need a new one. Another possibility is that the purge unit is not cleaning and priming the printhead properly. I have seen several defective purge units. For 1 year it can be replaced under warranty, after that it is a $90.00 repair job in the shop.

Leaking black ink on printed pages


Hi, please attempt to run a numerous blank paper through the printer. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains or streaks are still present, the printer may need service.
