Dark pages whole pages coming out in dark/grey - started with specks. I'm out of cyan toner, but don't see how that could be a factor - have been printing in black & white just fine.

Konica 1212 copies to dark


1st the basic cause of dark/grey copies DUST. Clean w/ alcohol cloth then dry cloth totally all mirrors and the platen glass both side. If still dark check the "Optic slit " right in the upper of your halogen lamp remove it, still dark Check your halogen lamp maybe it already oxidized. The last solution adjust the CVR .

I am getting white specks on all four colors on my phaser 8500 and some black smudges. I just did a smudge clean and it helped, but it didn't clear it.


Hello.

Try a laser printer roller cleaner (paper sheets), like PathKleen or Perfect Data. You may need to run sheets through several times before the cleaning is complete. Do not use a sheet more than once.

Hope this helps.

Prints lighter on left side of most pages. Even with new toner and fuser and toner darkness turned up to 9 or 10.


This is a bit tricky, but try it

remove the toner cart and lower the top cover about 1/2 way. Look inside and you will see 2 grey rollers hanging from the top on 2 arms. Move the right side arm to the right and grey rollers will fall out (they are as wide as a sheet of paper)
use a light scrubbing with a damp cloth to remove the grey, the rubber should be a tan colour. Dry them off well, insert the left side first (cover in the 1/2 closed position makes moving that right arm easy. install the toner cart again and print a page. It should be nice and dark now, just make sure the rollers are dry when you reinstall them.

When printing dark blue or purple, it came out as dark or light cyan. Please advice.


Don't know what type of printer you have since you did not supply that info. But it sounds like the magenta or red ink/toner is not working on your machine. Since purple is made from using blue and red. Since you are only getting a cyan or blue color, the printer is not outputing the red. Check the red toner/ink cartridge to see if it is empty. Hope this helps.

Phaser 7300 - one color fading on diagnostics page


Are you using third party toner? That is one thing that causes that problem. Use only xerox toner.
The other thing is that your image unit could have come defected, if it was brand new. Try changing the image unit and that should fix that problem. Good luck. 016-1993-00 image unit & toner 016-1977-00

Half the page is dark grey


Low toner.
Consider how often you print.
If you print more than twice a day, toner will tend to run low after half a year, so I would buy a replacement cartridge and see if this solves your issue.
They aren't terribly expensive, so it is worth a shot.

Xerox 6250dp


I had this problem when I used a generic toner. I installed a xerox cyan toner, then printed many sheets of a large blue rectangle. After about 15 pages the blue started to spread into the shape, after 30 pages the blue was back. Printing a lot of blue was necessary to get the new toner thru the system.
