Poor copy quality

Hi,
The copies are coming out with a smudge on the side and extra images show up on the copy. I have tried changing the ink cartridge. I replaced the drum pretty recently.
thanks!

If you have reprinting images like that, the fuser heat roller is work out. What happens over time is the teflon coating wears and the ink starts to stick to the roller instead of fusing properly into the page.
Once the ink starts sticking to that roller, you get reprint and it just continues to get worse.
Either the heat roll or the fuser itself will need to be replaced.

Canon ir 1600 my copier print copy image is very poor


Hi there,
iR1600 are special machine that needs a little bit more care.

First, clean the laser unit and optics ( beneath copy glass too ). Then use some polisher and polish the developing cylinder and clean/replace developer cylinder blade.

Use GENUINE CANON DRUM UNIT and GENUINE TONER.

If the toner isnt burned on paper it means that you have to change fixing roller bushings and fixing roller.
Because you have uneven pressure between fixing and press roller

Xerox Copycentre C123 Creating a Ghost Image


First place an original on glass and make a copy -- mark #1. With that same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way light and make a copy -- mark #2. Again with the same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way dark and make a copy --- mark #3. Place #1 in the middle so the the copies read --- #2, #1, #3. The #2 should be the lightest and #3 being the darkest. If #2 is darker than #3 you have a developer problem and you need to call for service. If #1 and #2 are bad and #3 is a good copy your machine probably just needs a good cleaning, mainly the optics and charge units. If all 3 copies are still poor with the speckles, your are looking at the PCU ( photo conductive unit) also called the drum unit. You can order this unit online -- it is a customer replaceable item.

Workcenter xd103f copy comes out blank


Which cartridge did you change? If its the toner cartridge, make sure none of the packaging materal is left on it, same with the drum cartridge. First and simply remove and reseat the cartridges.
What I suspect with the blank copies is a broken transfer corotron wire.
Open the right side door. On the bottom you will see some whit plastic rollers. Above that you will see an opening about 1/2 inch wide. There is a very thin wire in that channel. That wire has probably broken causing your blank copies, I highly suspect that is broken.. That wire when it is dirty also causes really poor copy quality.
Also clean all the mirrors and glass well. That will cause poor copy quaility issues.
