You may have your machine set to print in "toner save" mode. Check your machine settings by printing a list. Also, some generic toner cartridges have too much polymer in the mix and will print light copies. If you change back to OEM toner, you may have to change the drum too, as the extra polymer stays in the drum unit and weakens the mix.

ML-2851ND Printing Problem


Dear
You have mentioned its a refurbished unit. If you attach a sample print it will be easier to understand the problem. however my first doubt on toner cart. If you are known the refilling/repair procedure, check and clean all rollers and blades. Also check the electrical contact points and lubricate with silicon oil.
thanks.

Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

I have a ricoh ft5535 copier. When I click copy the display panel reads, "misfeed remains inside" and the area "A" light comes on. There is no paper in the machine anywhere.


This alert can result from the smallest portion of a paper misfeed. Open all doors and look into each roller corner for a piece of paper that may have been jarred into a corner.

Left side very light


I believe this is a fuser issue, the fuser is not heating properly or evenly. It probably also means your dumping a lot of toner into your fax and you may start to notice streaking after a while.

I WANT TO COPY A DOCUMENT DARKER


There should be a menu item or button that allows you to adjust the copier's brightness or contrast. The icons may be represented as a circle with half-white, half-black center, or as a circle with lines surrounding it, like a sun.

It would help to know your model of copier, or at least your manufacturer.

Fax copies come in too light to read


I don't want to be 1 of them to say is it a generic ribbon. Ribbon transfer fax's are touch ie on melting the print on the ribbon on to the paper. tried selling the ginaric ribbons did not work well.

If it is a brother ribbon then the blue latch levers my be creaked if the print is only on 1 1/2 of the paper.

hope this helps

Copied pages are all black


Is is a lower end product for light duty use. You can try a new genuine OEM drum and or toner, but buying them both would cost as much as a new 2800. Can you print a internal report OK?If so, then your scanner is defective. A common problem with 2800,s
