SOURCE: Panasonic DP-150PA Light Copies to no copies

Have you reseated the drum and toner?
It can be a drum cartridge problem. have you tried that?
You say copy or print, so I am asuming this is multifunction and you do both printing and copying.
1, Have you shook up the toner cartridge well.
After the drum and shaking the toner, I would suspect the transfer assembly, Off hand I cant remember of that machine has a transfer roller, or if there is a channel where there is a hair fine wire running through it.
The wire may have broken, or if its a roller making poor contact.
The laser is also possible.The transfer will be on the right had door assembly.
Take the cartridges out and see if there is anything laying loose in the machine,
what you are describing sounds more like a drum or transfer problem.
sounds very much like a defective transfer. And again, could easily be the drum.
Did you have a jam just before this occured? If you had a jam in particular in the right hand door, you broke the transfer wire.
Yeah, i am rambling huh?

SOURCE: Dark copies in normal mode.

Cleaning the optics and corona wires will clean up your image quality. It's just dust build up on the mirrors and lens.

SOURCE: COPIES FROM PANASONIC FP7722 ARE JUST BLOTCHY GRAY

yep!
we can say it is common error/malfunction for these series of fp-77xx
it is also called as quarc error
you may fix it by manually adding some toner at the developing unit
or by pressing USER PRESET + 11 + 1 to perform manual add toner maybe up to 5x until you see some improvement.

Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker


To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

Printed pages are light on both sides of page.


This is usually a sign that the toner cartridge is running low on toner. Replace the toner cartridge and see if the problem persists. If not, then problem solved.

If the problem persists, try adjusting the darkness settings in the printer settings when you are about to print. Sometimes even one notch darker can make a large difference.

Just wondering if you may have replaced the toner with a remanufactured unit.....it may be bad toner. or it may be ruinning low without warning you. I believe it is cartridge related whatever the case. recommend trying another one

Printing


Check the print quality setting on your computer when printing from printing preferences try quality. Also optionally you may want to consider reinstalling the driver,s and uninstalling the printer completely first, as this will restore it to defaul settings.

Light copies


You may have your machine set to print in "toner save" mode. Check your machine settings by printing a list. Also, some generic toner cartridges have too much polymer in the mix and will print light copies. If you change back to OEM toner, you may have to change the drum too, as the extra polymer stays in the drum unit and weakens the mix.
