Inside the copier, there is a rather large, 6-10 inch diameter photosensitive, green drum that is used to transfer the toner to the paper. It sounds like the drum has lost the ability to charge properly, and thus it is not picking up the proper amount of toner to transfer to the page.

Suggestion: check the drum for any marks, scratches, or bands. Also, if drum appears good, the issue may be related to the developer power not being able to charge up to its full potential.

    do the drum and developer come as together in one unit and is there any sort of mechanical or electrical adjust that can be made

  • redmond_davi Nov 05, 2010

    If I'm remembering correctly, then I believe that they are separate assemblies that fit in with the drum unit on top of the developer assembly. As far as color adjustments, they are meant for small calibration errors and not dramatic changes. You most likely have a faulty drum.

Poor print quality .... Canon Pixma MP140 ...


Paper quality does make a difference in the quality of print, but it's usually in the areas of blurriness and vibrance. If your prints are coming out faded, the quality for your prints might be set to 'economy', which doesn't use very much ink. If you have it set for 'quality' prints, I would try replacing the ink cartridges.

Canon MF3110 - Copy problems When we try to copy a document it comes our blurry, yet if we send a document from computer software it comes out fine.


Try reinstalling the driver first. If that does not work, the issue is with the scanning hardware, which will have to be calibrated. Try doing a calibration of your scanner from the tool box first. If that doesnt work either, then it is definitely scanner hardware defect.

If your all in one is under warranty, I'd recommend you contact the point of sale of the manufacturer. Unfortunately, if your warranty has run out, you will either have to get it serviced or buy a new machine (whichever works out cheaper)

Hope that helps!

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.

Lexmark 3 in 1 x1270 scanner does lousy with certain colors ----blurry


Scanners (or copiers) can't improve on the image they are seeing.
If you view the labels under a bright light, you will see what the scanner is seeing too.

The only thing you can do is as you already have, use a photo editor to correct those cosmetic flaws before printing.
