You need to 1 remove the glass and clean the mirrors, lens and bottom side of the glass.
Also, remove the toner and drum cartridge, use a flash light. On the left side you will see a "window" about 5/16th of an inch in height, and probably 5 or 6 inches wide. That is the laser window, it is probably pretty dirty. You may have to use a Q tip or a soft cloth, dampened with some glass cleaner, and clean that window well.
If the optics, and laser are dirty , hazy, the copies will be light and streaky. The drum may be bad. Also, on the right hand door, Look just above the rollers, there will be an opening, it has a small clear plastic guide, then open with a hair fine wire running through it. Take a Q tip dampened with some alcohol, and carefully clean that wire. You can apply light pressure to clean it, just don't get forceful, it does not take a lot of pressure to clean that wire. That wire is responsible for "transferring" the ink from the drum to the paper.
If you clean all 3, Optics, Laser window and transfer wire, I think you will be very very pleased with your copy and or print quality. That should restore it very well.

I have a Xerox XC820. I am getting dark copies with residual images from previous copies. Toner appears to be adhering to the drum cartridge. Do I need a new drum cartridge?


I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.

Just purchased a Zerox XC1255 Copier at an Auction. Replaced the toner cartridge because the light was on. The copies seem to have excessive toner in the background of the copies. I am wondering if I...


Could be a bad drum unit. Is the new toner cartridge a refilled? Remanufactured? or Brand New Xerox brand toner? If it is refilled or remanufactured I would run some copies and give it a chance to clear. Sometimes they end up with too much toner in the Developer mix and can be overtoned which causes a general background over the whole page. They should clear up as you run copies, say within 100 pages. Also try manually lightening the copy with the exposure control on the operation panel. If lightening the copy clears all of the background then you need to have the optics cleaned. There are 4 mirrors under the large original glass that need to be cleaned. If all this fails then you are looking at either drum unit or a defective or out of balance toner/developer cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a Xerox Copier XC1045. Our copies are coming out with dark spot on the paper., I change the drum, but still have same problem, even big area has black spot


You may have a worn out heat roller in the fuser.
It is also likely you have a bad toner cartridge . If the spots are gritty then replace the toner cartridge and vacuum out the machine,

HI, MY XEROX 1045 COPIER has making ""clicking"" sound


That indicates you need to replace the drum cartridge. It's been a while since I supported those products, but I believe the cartridge is in the bottom of the device. Make sure you remove the toner cartridge before tipping it over or you'll have a mess to clean up and won't be able to remove the drum.

Once you replace the drum, you need to reset the copier.

Copies of xerox copier model 5201 almost black


USUALLY Black copies are a Drum grounding problem. I have not seen "black" copies due to old, bad, or otherwise inferior toner... Although, It is a Xerox, LOL

No toner light is on


Have you simply tried shaking it front to back vigorously? If you have and I am assuming you did that. take it out, and on the top of the cartridge you will see a clear round window. Take either some black tape, or a small piece of paper and tape over it and see what happens. How that machine determines if there is or is not ink in the cartridge is by a sensor that looks throught that window for toner.
If you block it and it still says out of toner, then your sensor is bad.

Xerox 5305 copier excess toner


sounds like faulty drum cleaning blade,which is usually contained in the replacement drum module.I would be inclined to take the drum unit back where you got it (unless you replaced it with a second-hand one) 99% certain the problem is contained in that module
