Question about Canon LASER SHOT LBP-5000 Printer

1 Answer

Our Canon LBP5000 has a calibration problem which results in the separate colours of an image printing slightly apart giving a ghosting or shadowing effect. This is not consistent with every print. The toners are all quite new - any ideas how to resolve this?

    hi, you are welcome, the vdo controller is located on the printer it's an electronic card wich control the video signal generated by the usb port. if you have a problem of ghosting first try to execute the calibration process from the canon software from your pc, after finshing the calibrabration send a job to the printer, if still no change you have to replace the video controller, buy a new one from canon.

Why is there ghost printing/shadows on my xerox workcentre 7335?


Suresh,
You don't say if the ghost is a particular colour, by ghost I suspect you mean similar to a drop shadow.
Firstly run off an internal test print, one of each colour if the grid lines are fine and showing no signs of shadow then your problem is not an internal problem. Don't send a C,M,Y,K test print from your computer, you can't eliminate colours that way.
If you can pin the problem down to one colour it could be a particular drum unit. Investigate from there.
Good Luck.

My canon irc 3200n is printing shaken images


Difficult to say without seeing the quality of the prints but sounds like a calibration issue. By shaken to you mean that colours have fallen out of line and are leaving outlines on your prints? Possibly giving it a 3D-like effect?
If so I would recommend running a few calibration/alignment cycles from the printer or printer software to bring all the colours back into line.

My HP Photosmart C4280 doesn't give correct colours when scanning


You can usually calibrate your printer. When you first get your printer you may have to run through tests. One of them is where you print out a sheet with multiple colours on it and you then scan it to calibrate the scanner.Scanning will rarely give a perfect representation of the actual photo or image but if you do calibrate it may solve your problems.

The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.


  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

Had the same problem with LBP5000. Used the Cleaning Utility(Options/Cleaning) in the printer software, had to run it several times, the shadow did not go away the first time. Looks all right now.

Had the same problem a while ago.
In my case it was simply that the plastic tab had come away from the plastic strip you're supposed to pull out from from the cartridge before installing. Found the end of the plastic strip and pulled it out and this sorted the error.
An additional problem we had was alignment of the colours when printed. Magenta and black were misaligned by about 0.5mm after changing a cartridge. This was cured (after much frustrated cleaning/calibration) by switching the printer power off and on (couple of minutes to cool down).
Hope this helps.

Ghost image when printing in colour.


There must be a calibration option in the printer's menus, dig around, might be in a maintenance or service menu. Could also be found in a program on your computer sometimes.
