    I take it the spring clutch is the black plastic sleeve that has raised notches which the white cam locates on which is part number AB040020..

My 343n is printing faint on one side does anyone know why, we have 80% toner and 28% left on the photoconductor life


Try to use different supplies - if you have another toner and another PC kit. If the supplies are working fine, it could be the transfer roller that's causing the faint prints. I would suggest cleaning the transfer roll with a soft cloth. If problem continues, you might need to replace the roller.

Printed image repeats later


I have a Dell 5100CN, and believe that this problem is caused by the drum not releasing the full charge which holds the ink in place on the drum until the page is printed. After the image is transfered to the Drum, the 'Fuser' unit heats up the paper and pressure forces the paper against the drum to transfer the toner from the drum to the paper.

Since the Image is printing, and you are getting a ghost, I guess that the problem is most likely the 'Pressure Roller' or 'Heater' in the 'Fuser' unit.

Buying the Fuser unit from Dell could cost you around $200 from Dell, but I just found one on eBay for $129 Got to www.ebay.com and search for item number 190388919845

I highly recommend that you buy a new OEM (original Equipment Manufacturer (Genuine Dell)) 'Fuser Unit'

Good Luck

KM 3050 Printing Faintly


This could have been caused by a number of things. The transfer roller, a spongy looking black roller on the left door could be broken somewhere so the roller does not keep pressure on the paper and aid in transfer of tone from the drum to the paper. Check that or you may need to refresh your developer so you need to enter 1087 1087 on the key pad, this will take you to a maininance mode and then enter 130 and start this will take you to a screen and will say something like setting developer, tap execute and then push the start button and after a few minutes your machine will have refreshed your developer. Then hit clear a few times and enter 001 and start witch would take you back to the copier screen. if this does not work just shut your copier off then on and your machine will have reset. Try the Copies agian. Hopefully that will work.

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

Printing is faded and too light


more important than all that nonsense is:
is it faint when you do an internal report or make a copy?
if only on copies it is the film on the underside of the glass.
if on prints and copies it is the drum.

Faint mirror image when printing


It's most likely one of 2 problems...the toner cartridge or the fuser. The toner cartridge transfer roller may still be charged and keeping a little bit of the previous page's information on it, to be transferred on the next sheet. I would try a different toner cartridge first to see if that solves it.
