I have a Xerox XC820. I am getting dark copies with residual images from previous copies. Toner appears to be adhering to the drum cartridge. Do I need a new drum cartridge?

I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.

The black cartridge on my Xerox Phaser 6180 immediately ran out of ink. I understand there is a way to get a few more copies from the existing cartridge until my order for a new one arrives.

Pull the toner cartridge out and gently shake it, this will usually free up some of the toner that's left...but be careful or you'll spray toner everywhere!

The toner cartridge replacement won't fit

Yes it is possible that they did not send you the O.E.M. toner cartridge. Some of the gerneric toners are made for a few different models and they may not fit exactly.

J1 Error, Changed a brand new factory-sealed toner, still getting J1 Error

Make sure you have the right code: J1 or J2.
one is for the drum and the other is for the ink.
Make sure the toner unit is for this model and not for a different model.
If the old modual is still available, check the connectors at the back and see if they are the same.
If anything else Call Xerox for repair. If the cartridge was bought through Xerox have your reciete available for warrenty.
If repairs still need to be made, A Xerox service call may be needed in order to fully repair the copier and warrenty the cartridge.
