WOW I haven't seen one of those in years and years but a good dependable machine .the machine sounds like it is very dirty inside. the optics(lens and mirrors under the glass) and the corona wires are very dirty.
it really should be cleaned by a qualified copier technician, but if your mechanically inclined i may be able to walk you through it.
you may be able to get cleaner copies by pressing the "A" button and sliding or press ing the buttons to lighten the copy, that should temporarily fix it

Thank You,

Mikey

If copy quality is very dark then what to do for making it normal


The dark quality is definitely linked to a light intensity problem. If the scanner lamp is operating properly then check for any reflective surfaces near the scanning lamp and clean those. It only takes a light film of dust to make copies dark. Be careful around the lamp, it is delicate.

Paper has dark marks down middle


If you make a copy, does the copy have dark areas down the middle of the page? If so, remove the toner cartridge and gently roll it around to redistribute the toner inside, maybe even replace the toner cartridge if you've had it a long while. If you still see unevenness, you may need to have the machine looked at.

If the copies you make on your machine look fine, then I would suspect that the person sending you the fax has a dirty scanning element. Check with them to see if they can clean the scanning element and it should improve the fax quality.

My Canon PC 980 photocopier (black & white) is making a 1/4" dark line about 1" in from the entire left edge of each copy. Why and what do I do? Lars


It sounds like a bad drum cleaning blade.

Also lift open document feeder and check for wite-out in the glass.

"DARK PAPER USED" Message


I found a copy of the manual, and on page 202 the "Dark Paper Used" message can be caused by three things:

1. Paper used is colored or stained -- replace with clean white paper.

2. Paper was pulled from machine before the fax was ejected completely.

3. The received document support is not installed correctly. Page 3 in the manual shows this support as the rear-most, and it looks like it should be installed with the upright portion angling toward the rear at about a 30 degree angle.

Copies here and recipients faxes: dark, lined


How long has the drum been in there?
try this:
1-take out toner, look and see if it is ok. do you see stripes on it?
2- look at the drum are there any black rings on it? ( you did not specify white or black lines)
3- where the glass is on the opposite side ( the part you lifted to clean the glass, look at it standing from the back. you will see a white metal plate with some springs in it if you touch it. this is the reference that the fax has if there is/are a black dot on it it will give you a black line clean carefully. if it is scratched use white out to cover and make white again.

For the darkness try making a copy in photo mode if it is still too dark change drum.
