The scanner mirrors are dirty.
You can try doing a shading adjustment . You press menu #1934 to enter tech mode. Then in menus under maintenance go to shading adjustment, place 5 sheets of paper on the glass and run the shading adjustment. That may help.
But the problem is the mirrors are hazy and in need of cleaning. The rear, both side covers must be removed. Then 2 screws on the back of the scanner must be removed , and the connectors unpluged from the main board. There is also one green ground wire that is attached to the frame from the scanner.
Once the scanner is removed, you have I believe 4 screws to remove and the controle panel.
You have to be very careful opening the scan head under the lamp. It is just held together with plastic tabs. Under the lamp are the mirror and lens, that must be cleaned to get your copy quality back to mormal

Toner spills on papers, how do i solve it?


Is the toner still loose or is it fused to the paper?
If it's loose, you need to clean out the inside of the printer because toner was spilled inside. Don't use a regular vac, because you need a heppa type filter

If it's fused, there may be a couple reasons:
1) It could be a dirty fuser
2) It could be a failing toner cartridge, replace it

Based on your post, I would suggest replacing the toner cartridge first, as if the copies are faint, you are running out of toner.

Xerox WCP 416 , it showed message replace drum cartridge


It sounds like you are replacing the toner cartidges NOT the Drum Unit. Drum is located behind the toner cartidge and you will see it after removing toner. Pretty common mistake :)

My xerox PE16 mistakenly thinks there is no toner, even with a new toner cartridge. 1. How can I tell it that the sensor should be reset? AND/ OR 2. How can I print faxes from memory (they refuse to print...


What has most likely happened is the fuse either fell out of the new cartridge or is not making good contact. Look on the top of the cartridge, there is a sliver and glass fuse that is supposed to be on the cartridge to reset the toner counter.
Be sure that fuse is there. If it isn't the cartridge will not reset.
If thats the case you can replace the fuse with a good one or contact whoever you purchased the cartridge form for a replacement.

Cartridge


When either printing or xerox is faint or leaving pages blank in between then your cartridge is almost empty. Get it refilled.

Xerox PE16 Workcenter


if you print from a printer do you get the blank like?
if Yes, then you may have some dead LED's on the scanner (this will need replacement)
if No, then look at your scanner (small thin glass strip that reads the paper when being copied) and clean it. 9 times out of 10 there is some white-out or toner stuck to it, clean it and that should fix that.

hope this helps with the white line

thanks for rating
