Question about Copystar CS-1510 Copier

1 Answer

Printing Too Light

Toner is full and it still prints too light. If you put it on the darkest setting it prints fine. Is there any other disposable item that needs periodic replacing in the cs1510?

9 times out of 10 when a copier is printing light it is NOT the toner.
when the toner is low the machine will display a message.

can you tell me how many pages this machine has done?

    1st thing i will ask is have you tried a NEW **** of paper (once paper has been opened, the paper starts to absorb moisture from the air. In a copier this will cause 2 things:
    1. Light copies.
    2. Paper creasing, curling and jamming.

    Apart from that there are a few things that could cause this fault.

    1. If the machine has never been serviced then the optical unit ( the section under the glass) will need to be cleaned. - if you are thinking of doing this yourself you MUST unpllug the machine from the wall and only use clean lint free cotton cloth do not douch the lamp with your hands and be very careful not to scratch the mirrors. (it is probably a job for an experienced technician)

    2. The laser unit may have dust on the **** glass. - (this would need to be cleaned off by a technician)

    3. The machine may require a new drum and dev (developer). on this model then Kyocera released it they did not expect users to get to the point where it would need developer so there is not an actual developer for this model so if a tech comes out they will need to use 3/4 of a bottle of developer for a Kyocera km2030.
    when the drum is replaced you should replace the dev, drum blade and main charge unit. (again this is a job for an experienced technician.)

    there are a few more less likely things that may cause it ie: defective main charge pcb or one of the other pcb's may be playing up.

The black print on my Dell 1320C laser printer is very light (grey) in fact. I replaced the black toner at no avail. The other colors are fine.what can I do to soulve the problem. ...


It sound like you have either a very low toner density set, which would normally be set either through the control panel or the driver, or possibly the Dell Toner conservation system turned on. Here is Dells owners manual info on dealing with light print.
The toner cartridges may be low or need to be replaced. Confirm the amount of toner in each toner cartridge.
  1. Press [Printer Status], and then click the Status tab in the printer driver.
Ensure Non-Dell Toner is not selected in the Printer Maintenance tab in the Tool Box.
  1. Click the Tool Box button.
Set Toner Saving Mode to Off in the printer driver.
  1. Press [Printing Preferences], and then click the Advanced tab.
If you are printing on an uneven print surface, change the paper type setting in the printer driver. For example, change the plain paper to thick.
  1. Press [Printing Preferences], and then click the Paper Tray tab.
Verify that the correct print media is being used.
  1. See "Print Media Sizes and Support".
Ensure that eight yellow ribbons are correctly removed from the PHD (Print Head Device) unit.
  1. See "Replacing the PHD (Print Head Device) Unit" and "Installing the PHD Unit".
Ensure that the developer motor starts.
  1. Contact Dell.
Ensure that the dispense motor starts.
  1. Contact Dell.
When you are printing many images with low density, do the Toner Refresh Mode.
  1. Click the Tool Box button.
  2. Press the Start button to check the density of colors.
  3. If the print is too light, Select Refresh Mode from the list. Press the Start(1)-(4) buttons.
CAUTION: Using the Refresh Mode consumes extra toner.
  1. After you complete the Refresh Mode, select Chart Print from the list. Press the Print with A4(3) or Print with Letter(C) button for 4 Colors Configuration Chart. "Printing" appears.
    Is the problem recovered?

HP Laserjet 3055 All-in-one. Printing and copying too light despite brand new HP toner cartridge. On the computer, "Print Quality - print density set to highest number (5) for darkest. Also tried...


New cartridge means that the transfer corona is probably going out (or the controller board is sending wrong voltage) because it charges the paper to pull the toner off of the EP drum. This might be replaceable but you have to check with HP about buying one. I did not find them for sale on line but some models have them for about $25.

HP Laser Jet 4700n-Light printing on right side of paper. Removed all cartridges and toner, cleaned and recalibrated after start up. Still light printing on right side. Any suggestions??


Is the light printing the same for black and white vs color? Light printing on a side is not uncommon for these printers. It is usually caused by the laser optics getting dirty. But this usually shows up more in one color than the other. Such as something printed in yellow is fine while red is faded on one side. If the light on the right side printing is the same on all colors including black then I would suspect something with your transfer unit.
If you do notice that it us just on black or another color then it is definately time to get the laser optics cleaned.

HP LaserJet 3030, light print with original brand new cartridge, even with the print darkness set to 5 (darkest). Thank you for any tips!


Forget buying a new toner cartridge and don't bother re-installing anything - This is a power supply problem - The electrolytic capacitors fade away after a few years of power on and the high voltage to the printing engine drops too low.I tried a new toner cartridge - no help - re-installed drivers - no help.If you can handle a soldering iron or know a friend who can, replace the following capacitors on the power supply board on the LHS (power cord side). Make sure you use low impedance 105 degree power supply types. Warning - high voltage !!! power cord out and wait 30 minutes before touching anything.
C374 341 503 529 (47uF/35V), C526 (1uf/50V), C506 (0.47uF/35V), C515 (100uf/50V). All the others tested fine in mine. Also make sure you install them the correct way around!
Now I have "black as black can be" prints just like new and I set print density back to 2 not 5 to save toner.
enjoy ;-) - Ray P
