Open the fron cover & remove the drum.In the drum unit you will see a BLUE knob just move it right to left approx 20 times.
After that fix the drum back & try to copy.

If the problem is same change the drum unit as the cleaning blade of the drum has been damaged


Rate me if it was helpfull...

Why are all my incoming faxes all black pages?? Is it my fax or the senders? Very hard on the ink cartridge


hard to determine the problem without any make/model of your fax machine. However I would begin by looking at the fax contrast and darkness settings, they are likely cranked to the dark side. If you cannot find these settings or this doesnt help. post your make/model information. I don't believe this should affect sending faxes, its likely just a print / contrast setting for received faxes.

"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.

How do the copies look? Most commonly dark print is caused by defective generic supplies or dirty laser scanner.
