Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

White lines when printing

When I print, no matter what colours, I'm getting a white line down the right hand side of the page. I've tried cleaning the printer but the problem is just getting worse. Someone tells me this can be a common problem with the Aculaser C1100 printer. Is that the case and anyone know how to fix it? I don't think it's due to age as I've only had the printer around 18 months and it's not been overly used. Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem, white line on the right of the printed page. I tried to clean the PCU (it's almost new) but without success on solving the problem. Can anyone explain me how to clean the laser glass? I don't know how to do this. Thanks.

Open the front door
On the right side you will notice a handle that you can pull OUTWARDS
On the Outside Right half way down towards the back you will see a removable plastic plate - remove it
Behind plastic plate is a handle, pull it in and out several times. This will wipe any toner off the laser glass

Chances are the white band will now have gone.

If you need further help, please let me know so I can help you fix the machine.

White lines means no ink was put on paper. O.k lets go step by step with elimination

1. If the line is stationary then,
---is your PCU o.k and without any discolouration, especially on the side corresponding to the white line
---Is some object (clips,staples paper) blocking the laser beem passage to the PCU.

have u tried cleaning the Laser shield glass.

If u have been cleaning the PCU alot. give it a rest it is not the problem.

check you teflon paper, any marks or scratches corresponding to the said point.
confirm whether the lines are stationary or migratory

White lines on dark photo prints

White lines means some of the print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Try the deep clean print head cycles then do a test print. If this still does not fix the problem then a new print head is required.
Print heads are expensive and if your printer is old then maybe better to put your money towards a new printer.

I have cleaned the developer blades of the colour cartridges in my samsung clp-300 laser printer as per instructions on this site. The vertical white lines have now gone BUT i now have a 3 mm wide blue...

Check to make sure the blade is UNDER the foam along the side where the streak is. If it isn't, then more toner is getting out than should be and that is the cause of your streak.

White lines running through printed line

The white lines occur when the print-heads do *NOT* output coloured-ink when they should be.

Run the Epson printer-software to "clean-the-print-heads".

Try replacing the toner cartridge. This seems to be a problem with the photo-sensitive drum, which is located in the cartridge.

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 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.
