Defective toner cartridge. Try sliding out the cartridge, turn it over and slide open the cover/gate that covers the drum. The drum should be clean all the way across. If you see a toner band or anything that would be your proof. 9 times out of 10 this is going to be a bad toner cartridge.

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.

Xc830 copying dark ,down center of page


There are a series of mirrors on the carriage that moves back and forth under the original glass. When dust builds up on these mirrors it makes the copies darker. Since the dust is blown by the optics cooling fan it does not collect evenly which causes areas of the copy to be darker than the others. On this machine you just have to remove the original guide plate which is the plate with 4 screws in it and has the document size numbers on it. Once that is removed the glass can be lifted out. With the power turned off just gently pull out the scanner bar. The part that initially comes out has 1 mirror as well as a silver reflecting strip on it. Clean both. Now the assembly that follows the first assembly out has 2 mirrors on it. 1 facing downward and 1 facing upward. Clean these 2 mirrors. Re-nstall the glass and plate. Turn the machine on and let the scanner unit home itself. Once warmed up make a copy to test. Cleaning these surfaces will usually correct the problem. There are 2 more mirrors under the black box under the glass but those do not get as dirty and they are harder to get to.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Copies from my xerox cx865 have dark areas-it is a series of three "bars, running the short length of the paper, though they are darker on one side. this happens even if i just try making a copy of a blank...


ok well for starters you would normally want to post this under our printers/copiers section in order to have the proper people look at it but your in luck i think i know exactly what your problem is and a simple cleaning of the printer and ink cartridges should fix it this is a link to a very standard copier cleaning procedure which normally will fix any issues with uneven printing

New toner but still have dark streaks


IF YOU ARE ONLY GETTING THE LINES WHEN YOU PUT THE DOCUMENTS INTO THE TOP FEEDER AND NOT FROM PRINTNG TO COPIER OR IF YOU PUT A COPY ON THE GLASS UNDER THE DOC FEEDER AND NO LINES APEAR CHECK THE SMALL GLASS WINDOW UNDER THE DOC FEEDER THERE MAY BE SOME TIPEX OR INK RUBBED OFF AND LEFT ON THE GLASS THERE.. THISD MIGHT BE CAUSING THE STREAKS YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY PUTTING THE PAGE IN THE DOC FEEDER AND DOING A COPY AND THEN PUT IT ON THE GLASS PLATE UNDER THE LID AND DO A COPY OR IF HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER DO A PRINT JOB.. IN NO STEAK APPEARS YOU CAN BE SURE ITS ON THE THIN SCANNER GLASS.. GOOD LUCK ...a

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies


If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Canon PC6re copier makes copies that are dark on the long edges


Just fyi, a Canon PC-6e is a copier that is about ten + years old of a model... The drum unit will make the copies better.... But, you most likely need to clean the optic's. Have you tried to make the copies lighter??? If I am correct, there is a small botton on the control pannel that will turn... It will make the copies light one way and darker the other way... Good Luck

Want a B&W copy from colored sheet of paper w/o dark background.


It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.

Each succeeding copy gets darker and darker


When was the drum replace? Recently? Could it be time again?
Was it a remanufactured unit?
Regardless of all that, It sounds to me like the drum is failing.
