The sensors in the copier or sensors in the cartridge/drum unit have become dirty and that needs to be cleaned.But if sensors are cleaned and still the same problem then the problem is related to faulty drum unit or toner cartridge.The approximate cost of getting the copier serviced is near to $30.The copier needs to be serviced and all its sensors needs to be cleaned by printer cleaner liquid.The sensors are copper colored/steel colored metallic objects. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Try to adjust the illumination: turn the automatic exposure adjusting knob (flip the front panel, on the left) to the right almost to the end
If this has failed to fix it then either the light on the scanner isn't working or its sensor has just died. Fixing either of them will cost you more than your copier is worth - time for a new one.

    No ,you can't - the replacement parts aren't available for purchase, only in repair shops.



    The lighting unit - around $250. The sensor - around $400. The price includes the labor.

Out going fax is coming black


FIRST test copying. if the copy come out completely black, then the exposure or scanner lamp or contact image sensor is dead,not lighting on. Now if the copy has black only black lines on it,then you can clean the place where the document passes thru where the light of the exposure lamp projects unto the text of the document being scan,which is the small glass on the left side of the platen glass when you open the auto document feeder.NOTE: Lay your document on top of the platen glass & make copy if the copy come out clean as you needed it,then the lamp is O.K. Then the small glass just need to be clean. If the copy is completely "BLACK", then the lamp is dead, or the circuit that control it. In thus case then you need a technician to do it

Each succeeding copy gets darker and darker


When was the drum replace? Recently? Could it be time again?
Was it a remanufactured unit?
Regardless of all that, It sounds to me like the drum is failing.

I have a xerox dc12 with error message please turn machine off and on again 9-363 have tried several times but no good! what else can I do?


That's a process problem with that machine.
May require a service call .ON and OFF is pretty much all a customer can do and wait for it to setup.
NOTE: The problem occurs because of the trickle development system in the machine, making extended lengths of black and white copies / prints does not allow the black developer housing to purge itself of excess waste Toner (Dry Ink) and Developer. There are two solutions for the problem:
  • Make 1,000 copies / prints of a black and white job, then make 150 copies / prints of full color. Continue making 1,000 copies / prints of the black and white job, then 150 full color, and so on, until the entire black and white job is complete.
  • Make extended jobs in groups of 100 by making 100 copies / prints of the black and white job, then allowing the machine to cycle down (return to 'Ready') and making the next 100 copies / prints. Continue in this pattern until the entire black and white job is complete.
