If the problem appears BOTH by copy and print situations, the problem is the drum unit itself.
Unfortunately you have to buy a new drum assy.

I'm getting a line that isn't printing through my printing from a Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C3055 DX


Possible reasons are: 1.empty toner cartridge, 2.dirt under one of the toner cartridge's developing roller, 3. dirt on the primary charge roller in the drum cartridge, 4. obstacle on the laser path.
Replace the empty toners first and try printing again. Follow the next steps if it didn't solve the problem.
Print a test page with 4 stripes across the page - black, cyan, yellow and magenta. See if all have the missing toner line or only one of them. If the white stripe is going trough only one color, inspect the cartridge with that color. It has to have the same stripe on the developing roller. See if there is some dust beneath it that makes the stripe and clean it with a brush. If the stripe is across all colors, then inspect the drum unit. The drum itself has to be evenly shining on the light. If there are uneven matte tracks on it, consider replacing. There should be a gap somewhere for the laser beam to pass and the drum is visible trough it. Look trough it for obstacles like piece of paper or hair. The primary charge roller has to be close to that gap inside, touching the drum. Look for dirt on it. Clean if possible.
Toner cartridges last approx. 6500 pages. The drum cartridge lasts between 14 000 and 28 000 pages depending on the color use.

I have a Xerox XC820. I am getting dark copies with residual images from previous copies. Toner appears to be adhering to the drum cartridge. Do I need a new drum cartridge?


I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.

Xerox 4118


That isnt unusual. The 8000 pages is for a page with 5 percent coverage area, or a rather short letter.
the 3600 to 4000 pages is not out of the ordinary for that machine, Although the xerox brand may work better, although not more copies, if you run pages with more than 5 percent of the page printed, that is about right.
Also there is no chip on a 4118 cartridge. The toner is monitored by a sensor and window in the middle of the cartridge. It shines light through the cartridge, and when the cartridge is empty the light actuates a light activated sensor.
it is not an efficient machine.

Self cleaning and print test sheet


To print a test page, from ready press the go button. There isn't a cleaning page or drum cleaning cycle on Brother printers.

Brothers are notorious for having bad toner and drum issues. They are very finicky about paper quality. What happens is when a lower quality paper is used the higher paper dust and talc gets caught up in the charging brushes of the drum. Brother has no waste sections in their cartridges or drums so the built up junk stays right in the charging brushes and causes the drums to fail. On the toner cartridge side it re-uses it's waste toner adding it back (with the paper dust and talc) into the fresh toner supply area. Eventually the cartridge contaminates itself to the point of causing imaging problems.

Best recommendation after over 13 years fixing printers to you is to use GOOD paper at all times with Brother printers. Brands tend to fluctuate wildly in quality but the most stable brand to look for is a HP (Hewlett Packard) brand paper. They tend to keep the tightest control over paper with their name on it than others I've seen. HP "Office" paper is relatively inexpensive and will save you much more in the long run than buying cheap paper. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRAND PAPERS OR XEROX 4200.

Hope that helps you.
