Question about Canon FAX L-120 Plain Paper Laser

2 Answers

Printing My Canon L-100 works well but for a few weeks now a patchy white line goes down the left hand side of the printed page which makes that section of the page hard to read. It looks like it is the side on which the roller sits. Could someone pleasehelp me as we run a busy pharmacy and its making some faxed prescriptions hard to read!

It sounds like the toner is getting low. Take out the toner cartridge and rock it back and forth a few times to redistribute the toner evenly in the cartridge. If this makes the printouts look better, you should order another cartridge, as this one is getting low. I'm not sure about the L-100, but the toner cartridge for the L-120 fax is good for about 2,000 copies.

BOUGHT NEW CARTRIDGES (BLACK & COLOR) COST $70!! WILL NOT PRINT. SOUNDS LIKE PRINTING BUT BLANK PAGES COME OUT. . IS THERE A WAY TO CLEAN- UNCLOG PRINTHEADS MYSELF WITHOUT TAKING TO SERVICE MAN. CAN'T...


There are a few things you can do yourself to try and get the print heads flowing again, but they won't give you as good of results as a professional cleaning or new print head. I would say that the print head is most likely clogged if you let the machine sit for more than a few weeks without printing on it. If your last set of cartridges worked fine and then you immediately put in new cartridges and it didn't print, I would say the print heads may not be clogged but expired (no amount of cleaning will get them working again). To clean the print heads yourself first rub off any accumulated ink with a warm water soaked paper towel. As a check to see how your cleaning progress is going press the print head against a dry paper towel. You should see distinct entire lines for each color. You can then try resting the print head on a paper towel soaked in warm water to hydrate the print head. If no ink soaks into the towel at all after a few minutes the print head needs more cleaning than you can do yourself. Unless you know someone with a hand held garment steamer with a narrow nozzle on it you can steam the print head to loosen up the ink stuck in it.

I get a white line on the printed pages on my Brother MFC4800. The line is about 5mm wide and runs down the left hand side of the paper, cutting through the type. Can you help please


Try cleaning the optics and the charge corona. If you do not have the operators manual which outlines the proceedure, go to www.welcome.solutions.brother.com. The proceedure is in the CLEANING documentation. Make sure the wire cleaner is pushed all the way back to its home position. Otherwise, the white line may return if the cleaner is left in the expoure path. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTED PAGES GENERATED BY YOUR COMPUTER, THE WIRE CLEANER IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE.. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTS THAT WERE SCANNED USING THE BROTHER SCANNER, THE OPTICS MAY BE SMUDGED. LOOK FOR CORRECTION FLUID ON THE GLASS **** (THE NARROW SCAN GLASS). THIS IS THE USUAL CAUSE.

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side


If the print can be rubbed off then this suggests the fuser unit is not working correctly. It could be that the thermistor is covered with toner and making the machine think the fuser is hot enough when it's not.

The black line could also be caused by the fuser if one of the pick off fingers is coated with toner or has worn into the Teflon of the roller.

Does the machine show the lines when you print a page from memory - such as a counter or config page? If not, this would suggest the optical path is dirty. Try cleaning the glass and look at the mirrors inside the scanner to see if they are dirty/dusty.

Fax


its quite possible the area that scans the paper(s) you are sending is dirty.
If the machine is one of those phone/fax/scanner/copier jobs, simply open the top panel, and with a damp cloth, wipe the runners that feed the paper through from left to right or right to left (just make sure any dirt you're wiping goes off to one side)
its also possible that a paper (that white-out was used on) that has been recently faxed, left some white out on the feeders
