Your drum cleaning blade has gone bad. The blade cleans the drum between copies. When they go bad they can not keep the drum clean and some of the toner from the previous page is left on the drum and is reprinted along with the current print. The toner also builds up which is what causes usually the dark band where the double imaging occurs. Pretty cheap part at around $30. Just need someone who can install it for you. I would estimate the total cost to be around $125 to $150 depending on your local labor rates.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Double image on ricoh mpc 2800

Make sure that the printer is set properly for the weight of the paper. If it is 28 pound laser color paper, set it up for middle thick, etc., in (User Tools / System Settings / Tray Paper Settings). It will run the machine slower, so the toner will more fully melt and adhere to your paper.

What could be the cause of a copy fading in the middle or a faded copy

Hi There, this depends on what make and model your machine is, in general, faded in the middle means that the charge roller or corona unit is dirty or the paper separation roller/grid, stop your machine while the paper is halfway through, then look at the toner image on the drum, if that is light also, then the problem is with charge roller/grid, if the image on the drum is nice and dark then the problem is with your image separation roller/grid.

Dark streak on paper

you need to clean the rollers. consult the manual about cleaning the copier. if you don't have a manual, then get some methyl alcohol (any alcohol that evaporates completely will do). use a lint free cloth to rub a small amount of alcohol on all roller surfaces (accessible via pull-down compartments on front and back, usually).

When I print the page is very black and hard to read...It has progressively gotten worse. Also, many times there is a duplicate image in a different place on the page. Something going on with the toner? ...

The first thing to do with double image is to replace the cartridge!
If you want to make sure that it is the cartridge, you can print a page, stop the printer in the middle of the run, open the printer, take out the cartridge, look inside the printer at the page, do not remove the paper yet, if the double image and dark page is there, your problem is from the cartridge, if the page is clean and nice as it should be your problem with the fuser unit and it needs replacment. Good luck.

Double printing

HP do not use fuser oil. The upper roller is made of a non stick coating. When this begins to waer the toner sticks to the roller along with excess paper dust off the paper.This is what will cause a repeat image on a page. You need to swop the fuser unit to cure this fault

Poor print quality....bad fuser???

Is the toner sticking to the paper? This could produce double images (but not mirrored) More likely a problem with a mirror in the write unit out of place, which could create "mirror" image and poor quality.

Fault code J50 & dark strip.

This is for a Mita 1560 Photocopier (analog)
J50 was caused by exit sensor not sitting correctly in its bracket,I fixed this by pushing it until it
clicked back in.
The dark lines & double imaging can be caused light getting onto the drum ,or if the drum gets
cold (so I have been advised) which one it was for sure I will never know because when I
returned the next day & fixed the exit sensor the copy was OK.

Printing dark tshirt transfers - can't override the flipped image

Hello I think I can help you. I Would not use T shirt transfer when you make up your print I would select poster print or any other form that does not automatically reverse the image. The reason your software is designed to do this is on the regular transfer paper your laying the image down on the shirt, so for it to come out right it has to be reversed. With the dark T shirt transfer paper your peeling off the backing and putting the image face up on the T Shirt.
