Canon PC981 Copier Print issue

Machine is a Canon PC 981 Copier.

The problem is that when some cartridges are put in it starts printing darker. The copier has an automatic setting where it is supposed to adjust the dark/light based on what it sees on the paper. Can manually adjust to get it right, but wastes copies each time doing that.

Is there some sort of re-set option? Or is there anything else you can suggest?

When using generic toners, the automatic setting doesn't adjust to factory specs. So you have to adjust it manually. If you are using OEM toners the there is an issue with the density settings, and the unit needs to be adjusted by a tech.

Hi there,
iR1600 are special machine that needs a little bit more care.

First, clean the laser unit and optics ( beneath copy glass too ). Then use some polisher and polish the developing cylinder and clean/replace developer cylinder blade.
