Konika Minolta Copier prints half dark pages

Konika Minolta bizhub 501 copier makes half dark copies. Vertically half of every page is black and image on the other side is very light. I did not try to use it as a printer, but the test page prints out perfect, no lines no dark or light areas, so I assume image sensor or circuit has a problem. Green light under the glass is working, too. Has new toner and new drum, even though I think they are irrelevant because test pages are just as they need to be. What can be the copiers problem?

If it is only causing an image problem when you copy and not when you print, then there is something wrong with the optics under the glass. Check and see if you have any mirrors out of place or if the scanner looks crooked. If you have the machine set up to scan try and scan to SMB or email to see if it still has the problem. If everything looks correct under the glass and scans to SMB and email look bad like the copies, you may have a bad CCD assembly, or a bad board.

All the copies and print outs are black colour. Why is this happening?


Have you check the gradation print out for each color in the service mode? Recommended that you do that. Does this happen in printing or copying? There is a difference. Any warning to replace certain parts? Check consumables what needs to be replaced? What does the demo page look like? Are the image units OEM? is the transfer belt OEM? Service mode + Counter, details, stop00 stop01, output, gradation pattern.

Hello mine is really an FT3713


This sounds very scary...
Your Machine is very old..
What did you do last to the Copier to get it in this condition?


All you should have done is empty the Waste Toner bottle, and do SP83.
