We just bought a 'Panasonic Cyan' drum unit. We were assured that it was not used unit but new, Panasonic. After installing, our printer still reads the drum unit needs to be replaced. We've been told by the people that we lease the copier from that the cartridge must not be authentic that it must be a refilled one and therefore may have damaged our printer. Is this a problem with companies claiming to sell authentic Panasonic new drum units when in fact they are used and possibly not even Panasonic?

Yes; That kind of thing can happen.

One way to tell if it is an authentic product is the packaging. If it's new, factory sealed, has the manufactures name, colors, logo and lists your machines model on it then it's a very good bet that it's The Real Deal..... That doesn't mean It Can't Be Defective and Won't Cause Damage !!!

If any of that is missing or it says "For Use In" your model, it may be a generic brand.... That doesn't mean It Will Be Defective or Cause Damage !!!

If it's dirty or not fresh looking or has been re-sealed it may be a refurbished item. While it should cost a lot less... It doesn't mean It Will Be Defective or Cause Damage !!!

Important: Are you experienced in installing these units into your machine? Many machines will reset its usage counter just because it can detect the presence of a special item or circuit or what ever that's onboard a 'properly' prepared and inserted unit that means "I'm NEW!!" so, Love Me. And I may 'have' to be turned on or it may 'have' to be turn off at the time you put it in... Hey! I'm takin' about the Machine!!

Also; Some machine require some keyboard input or button pushing which will mean... Hey; I just put a new one in so, Love It!!!

One other thing.... The machine may be a bit brain dead too and isn't noticing what has changed in it's insides...

So; If you're certain you 'Did It Right !!' send it back for a refund and try again.. If you're not, check The Book that came with it for instructions.... No, No !! Not the Bible... I mean the Operator Manual!

Copiers! Ain't They... Fun???

My panasonic DP-C213 is laying down too much cyan. The prints are coming out with a cyan "haze" over everything.. any clue as to what to clean first?

You can clean the drum glass first (rod should be attached inside the door for it). Small hole under the drum visible after taking the waste toner container out. Stick the rod with the spongy side of it in there and push it in - pull it out couple of times. ( :) )
Other than that I#d change the drum or depends on the type of the "haze".
Be sure you are using _original_ toner. If not, change developer _and_ toner to original - the copier might not able to calibrate by factory standards.

Pages full of toner / toner streaking

First off, this is a comment from a random person who may or may not know ALOT about these printers and toner/printer design in general. All toners are not designed to the same specification. Toner is a combination of plastic "pigment" and iron like shavings to make it magentically attracted to the electrical charges within the unit. Different toners conform to different grades and mainly size of the particles within the blend. The manufacturer doesnt only recommend that you use their toner to make them money, yes of course it makes money, but its because when the unit is designed it is designed to use a certain grade of toner, trust me if you put the non-branded toner vs the branded toner under a microscope you would see quite a difference. Often the non-branded toner is much larger in particle size (obviousely because its cheaper to make at this spec). This causes a variety of issues from excess toner not being cleaned off of developer rollers, IDT rollers, or clogging of toner dispenser tubes in the unit and the micro filters contained at the toner dispenser assy and developer assys. Also as for the issue not changing when switching to dell branded toner - the dispenser tubes within this unit contain up to 500-1000 pages worth of toner, making no change in toner you make immediately visible. Also depending on the damage caused by the previous toner, it may not be able to be fixed until all the components in between the toner and final delivery (drum cart) are replaced. In this case more than likely the toner dispenser assy, all developer assy's, and drum cartridge need to be replaced, and than be sure to stick with factory branded toner :)
