Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Why do my copies have stripes on them? My Canon 6016 copier prints fine when cold but after about 10 copies dark streaks the direction of the paper feed begin to appear. At first they are light and they darken each sheet. They were only on one side, now they are in several places across the page. I have cleaned the mirrors. What else can I try? Scott

Most likely it is the cleaning blade that cleans the drum after every copy. If you are comfortable removing the drum unit, you can probably replace the cleaning blade on your own.
If you are from the US, you can order parts from: www.precisionroller.com

Good luck.
Hope this helps.
If you have any more questions, feel free to post them.
Have a good day.
Mac =)

Dark streak on paper


you need to clean the rollers. consult the manual about cleaning the copier. if you don't have a manual, then get some methyl alcohol (any alcohol that evaporates completely will do). use a lint free cloth to rub a small amount of alcohol on all roller surfaces (accessible via pull-down compartments on front and back, usually).

Printing black


Hello,
is the copy/print full black or have streaks or have dots, or ...

First, remove the toner crg., and check the drum surface if it has toner leftovers or spots or streaks, or... if so replace the toner crg.

btw. It also can be the fixing unit, but if these is the problem then the toner will not be "baked" on paper and it can be wide solid black stripe on corner.


Hope that helps!

Have a canon c130.changed toner and still getting dark streaks on copies. Have cleaned all I could find inside still dark streaks


Try doing a "stop test." You would induce a jam before the paper reaches the fuser.

Just open a cover while printing and hopefully some image has been transferred to the paper. If the defect exists already then the laser unit, or document scanner may be causing it.

If that eliminates the dark streak, then obviously the fuser FG6-3720-000 should be changed.

DARK LINES/SHADES APPEARING ON BACK OF PRINTS


when the print-out shows lines or streaks on the back of the paper when printing single sidedly, this usually means that the fusing unit is dirty or broken. another possible broken part may be the photoconductor unit.

Copies are dark


No. It would most likely be the opposite.

The stripes could be caused by contamination of the dev roller, fixing rollers or marks on the drum.

You could also clean the laser ****-glass.

I assume you're using photo paper.

Go to File/Print. Click Properties. Click Media Type and chose the photo paper you are using, whether it's Photo Paper Pro or whatever. If you're printing using Plain paper and you have photo paper in the printer, you'll get the stripes.

Hope that helps

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).
