One of the most common reasons for a Lanier 5222 or 5227 to make dark copies is a problem with the drum unit or developer. Fortunately on those machines, the drum unit and developer are all self-contained in one easily-replacable unit, called the PCU (photoconductor).

If you don't have a new PCU handy, you can order one from the same company you get your toner from. The PCU should generally be replaced every 60,000 copies, but sometimes it may need to be replaced sooner (especially if you run a lot of dark copies or make a lot of copies of images) and it can often run longer than 60,000.

Replacing the PCU is easy -- it sits right next to the toner bottle, and all you have to do is slide the old PCU out and slide the new PCU in (once you remove all of the tape and other trappings from it). Instructions will be included in the box with the new PCU.

Please rate the effectiveness of this solution. Thank you!

Hi have a lanier copier model 6725. When I make copies it makes the copy and then also prints grey across the entire copy. Looks like it is printing old ghost copies...how can I fix this


Hello!
If you say that you see old ghodt copies the problem is with the Fuser Roller in the Fusing Unit.
If this is right i advise you to call a Tech (if you do not have the skills to change it)

See you!

It appened when you take a copy????? If so, you probably hava scanner mirror durty.
Lift up de feeder end you see five screws.
Unscrew them and you have access to the mirrors.

Just wipe gently to avoid moving the mirrors

The copies on our Lanier/7313 come out zebra stripped. The copies appear to copy better if we change the copy darkness to a lighter color.


Zebra striping is typically caused by a bad development clutch. Most likely, the developer and the development clutch will need to be replaced, but the 7313 is so old you may have trouble finding parts, or finding a technician to work on the machine.
