After replacing the toner, it will only print on 3/4 of the page for all copies.

    We tried that earlier and it seems to be something related to the drum....after messing with it, it will copy a whole sheet, however, after about 400 copies it quits printing all together unless we take it apart again. We are hoping that we do not need to replace the whole drum...we are struggling teachers with a nice gift of a copier from a closing business, but we cannot afford maintenance or expensive parts.

Only prints the 3/4 of the top, the bottom or the sides?

Remove the cartridge. Be sure the seal was completely removed, shake the cartridge to the sides (like a wave movement) and put it back to the printer. It should fix the problem.

Check the installations instructions for the cartridge at the copier door.

    According to your comments, I believe the life of the drum has ended. Most of the cartridges have a chip with a counter that indicates when the part needs to be replaced regardless if it is working fine. I hope your machine is not that old.
    Can you provide the number of copies? The counter should be located inside at the top right of the machine.

Light copies


One of three issues --

1/ Toner is about out.
2/ Fuser needs replacement.
3/ Darkness setting is too low.

3/ Go to the configuration menu and raise the darkness setting.

1/ Check to see if your toner is low. Again go to the control panel and navigate to the status page
and print out a page. It will give you the % left of toner.

The toner could be low.
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

RICOH 1224C COPIES ARE SMEARED


Smeared output can also result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

If this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; if not, the thermostat is bad and you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

I use to get thousands of copies from one cart -


DELL has two types of toner cartridges for your printer:
- a 3000 Page Standard Yield Toner Cartridge (Manufacturer Part# : RP441 | Dell Part# : 310-8701)
- a 6,000 Page High Yield Toner
(Manufacturer Part# : GR332 | Dell Part# : 310-8700)

The Toner yield is based on printing pages with 5% page coverage in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752 testing methodology. Yields vary with usage and environmental conditions.
In practice, depending on what type of documents you print, one cartridge can print much less than the quantity of prints advertised.

You might perhaps bought before a high capacity (more expensive cartrige)?
Also, if you are using compatible (not original Dell cartridges) or reffils of the original cartriges , the yeld of the cartrige may vary.

Print problems with brother MFC-8860DN


Replace the drum. The drum is failing.
When you replace the drum open the front door of the machine where thr drum and toner is.
Hit the clear/back button. Press 1
That resets the drum count after you replaced the unit.

Good luck!
