Sounds like your drum cartridge might be bad.
Something you can try that might narrow down the problem is to make a copy of something and shut the copier OFF in mid copy.
(Basically, when the light is about 1/2 way finished scanning.)
Then, open the machine up and removed the jammed paper which should be 1/2 way through your machine and hopefully about 1/2 way under the drum/toner cartridge unit.

See how the copy looks at that point. **** FYI **** The toner on the paper is NOT FUSED so it will RUB OFF. Keep the paper away from your clothes and toss it.
IF your copy has smudges on it, then there is a real good chance that your drum unit is bad and needs to replaced.

If the copy looks good, then there is a possibility that the fuser unit is bad and needs to be repaired.

I would say that your drum unit is bad with my experience with Canon Copier.

If you still have more questions, feel free to ask.
Have a good day.
Good luck.

Leaves black marks on copies


It could be leaking toner from the recovery area that sis on top of the dum, it removes any toner that was not transfered to the paper. You would have to remove it and empty out the toner.

Very ''dirty'' copies, despite cleaning.Black lines and black smudges all over the copies. Copier (used) delivered to me 2 days ago, does toner need to settle perhaps?


I would guess you need a new toner cartridge. Improper toner distribution would not cause the problems you are describing.

Black smudge mark down 2 inches of right side of copy?


Do you see the same smudge mark if you lay the original on the platen rather than using the document feeder? If it only shows when using the document feeder, clean the scanning glass for the document feeder. It's the small glass to the left of the main glass with the cover open. Use a damp cloth and clean off any dirt or white-out.

Canonimageclass D320 makes smudged copies. What do I do?


This model is noted for a jam in the fuser area around the roller, Not easy to get to but sounds a like that may be proble, Can you hear a sound like paper wrinking as it runs. Also is the drum in the cartridge clean or has tone on it. Have you changed the cartridge. I do get a kick out of Staples Experts.. They did sell you some cleaning sheets... Hey Good Luck....

Smudging when copy comes out


There are several reasons, all of which will require a technician.
Do you mean the toner will wipe of page (unfused)? This is the Fusing pressure roller.
Do you mean smudge marks that don't wipe off? This is most likely either a drum (photoconductor) problem, or the Upper fuser roller - could possibly be dirty optics as well. But like I say, only a technician can help you here.

Smudge on the paper


When you say smudges, do you mean toner spot or blobs of toner on you pages? If you get random blobs of toner... You need to take out the drum unit & remove the primary charge unit & remove the drum & vac. out a small little grove that seats right below the developer mag roller... It is most likely filled with toner and is dropping on to you paper as copies are being made. Good Luck

PC-65 (Canon copier)


A smudge across the copy can be in many different areas.
Some ideas.
The drum cleaner may be the problem as you indicate.
It may be a piece of paper ripped of dragging across the surface of the paper causing the smudge.
Also the fuser roll coating may be very worn and causing that.
One thing to try that can show you if the defect is on the drum cartridge, is start to run a copy, After the paper feeds and this is timing, shut the machine off when you think the paper should be about half way through the copy cycle, then see if the copy defect is on the unfused page, If it is smeared before it reaches the fuser, it is in the cleaning section, if it is not smudged, then it is most likely the fuser rollers are needing replaced.
First look for a paper fragment in the path, step 2 is to shut the machine down in mid copy and see if the defect is there.
The fuser is the hot area of the machine in the exit area, If you can take a flash light and look in there and see if you observe wear or heavy toner buildup on a roller then obviously thats the problem.

Try adjusting the document feeder by undoing the nut on the right hinge and slackening the screws. Trial and error could produce better results to within 1 millimeter.
