Clean the optical path. Remove glass and use very fine quality micro fiber cloth with no cleaning agents to wipe mirrors and glass. reassemble and test. If no better then maybe focus is off!

When making copies, only a part of the document prints; the rest is solid black.


Solid black in a copy typically means that the scanner is partially blocked. Open the top, where you'd place a sheet to be copied, and examine the small strip that runs down the side (left, most likely). See if it's clear, or if something is covering part of it.
Most copiers don't use the full size scanning plate for copies, but use a strip that scans the paper as it moves across it. If something blocks part of it, you get the black area.

Solid black line when scanning or copying from KODAK ESP-3


Get a damp soft cloth and clean the scanner glass. If that doesn't resolve the issue there is a chance the scanning unit itself is damaged.
Let me know.

Print a part of paper


I will recommend to do a negative post copy. Then check whether solid black or not. If not solid or blur, then the developer material might be dirty or not enough where u need to replace. If only certain area, such as top or bottom part not solid or blur, it might be caused by the roll guide also where u need to replace it.
To replace developer is very simple, take out the waste toner box, unplug the connector on the developer unit, loose one screw, and u can take out the unit. On the unit, take out the 2 screws, and u can open the cover.

Copying with 4" solid black vertical stripe


what about if you print from computer or do an internal print like a self test? if print looks good on those, you most likely have a scanner problem, which is the mechanism under the glass.

Blurry bottom 2 inches of copy from IR 1600


Take a Normal,reduction and an enlarged copy(at any ratio) of a Newspaper in different size papers. Then check whether the blurred position is at the same position or not.If it is at the same position, check scanner for its free movement, there may be an obstacle which will not allow the scanner to move freely resulting in blurred copy. or else let me know.

KONICA 7020 - Blank copy


I have never heard of a developer moving backwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???
the motor that runs it, the .... there is too much involved to mention. A developper moving backwards will spill so much toner in the machine anyway.
If you get a copy and then it goes blank, that tells me you have a problem with the SEPERATION UNIT, it may be shorting out causing the paper to rise against the drum giving you blank copies.
A blurr copy tells me there is a problem with the Scanner/Optics area. maybe the rails that the scanner run on are too dry or has a problem, the optics(mirrors) may be misaligned.
Not sure what you mean by (hanging) ??

The copy function prints a solid black page?


Do you see the light going all the way across? The printer may be having power issues. You should make sure it is plugged into the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip.

If the light is not coming on then there is an issue with the scanner bulb and if the printer is plugged into the wall then you should call hp and see if you can have it replaced.
