Canon PC-6RE Exposure Issue

Hi. My church just had a Canon PC6-RE copier donated. As I am a copier tech (for a Canon competitor, in the interest of full disclosure) they asked me to look at it. I gave it a quick look this evening, and the copies have some dark background and bleed-through from two-sided originals. I intend to clean the optics to start, but I know that in similar models made by my company in that time period, adjusting the exposure helps that type of problem. In these older models, it is usually a case of either a coarse adjustment using a trimpot or a fine adjustment using internal diagnostics. The copier appears in fairly decent shape. There was a little toner on an orange plastic strip that runs along the transfer corona assembly but otherwise it's pretty clean inside. We have a new cartridge available.

I have looked in vain for a manual or other information on the Canon website and other places. Any possibility that you might have the information or some tips on improving copy quality? Barring that, any source for a service manual would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Why certainly, you can either call me and I will walk you through it. the canon pc 6 is a great machine except if you have to change fuser lamp or upper roller. otherwise very reliable call me at 813-323-1410.

Thank You,

Mikey

I have a Canon PC-6re copier. It is jamming


Use a thin but strong piece of card board (such as the back of a standard yellow pad notebook) and easily force feed it through machine. I had to use this method with our Canon Pixma MP190 printer. Hope this helps, Good luck!!

Cannon 6 RE PC gives black copies


does the lamp under the platen glass turns on when copying? if not you might need a new exposure lamp...but if you get an image but its very dark, if you are mechanically inclined you can clean the mirrors and lens and the bottom of the platen glass because after many years of use dust will make the optics dirty and cause the copies to be very dark. hope this helps.

Serving my Canon PC-6RE Copier.


there are some things better left for others to do. copiers is one of them. you cant explain in a paragraph what needs to be done and how to do it. there are alot of things that can be broken by people who dont know what they are doing. your machine is so old that you cant get parts for it anyway. you would be better off getting a new machine.

Older Canon Copier PC-6re


Then Error code means that the fuser / fixing Lamp is blown or it could be the thirmal fuse is blown. It could also a bad thirmister, that may have caused the fuse to blow. One thing you can look at, will the fixing unit get warm or hot. Do you know any copier techs, as a friend. It is not a easy job to fix this problem. You have to fix it to clear it.... Good Luck
