Question about Xerox WorkCentre XD120f Copier

1 Answer

Laser copy blotches, XD120f

After first copy, blotches on the right side at the top of the page. Gets worse on more copies. Have new factory toner ($200) and new refurbished drum ($60). Saw a tip on cleaning the corona wire but don't know what that is.

Thanks

Why is magenta blotching on left side of printed page?

My brother mfc 7440N prints splotches every 3-3.5" on every page printed. This occurred with the previous and new toner cartridges. How to fix?


For crying out loud.

The "blotch" is caused by damage to the drum or to the toner fusing roller.

If the "blotch" is loose toner (in other words you can smear it) then the fuser roller is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

If the "blotch" is fused (in other words you cannot smear it around) then the drum is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

The original MSRP for the Brother MFC-7440n in 2008 was $429 (US) / 213 pounds [FixYa couldn't handle the pound sign!! =8-) ] (UK) / $499 (AU). The present street value is about $199 according to Brother ( http://www.brother-usa.com/MFC/ModelCompare/4/MFC7440N_MFC7460DN#.UXBKKKLq3yA ).


A drum unit is $80 (Amazon) or $115 (Staples).

That same $200 could get you a Canon Pixma MX-922 (Canon http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx922). Inkjet? Yes. But fast. Airprint. 2-sided ADF and copying. Auto-duplexing. CD/DVD disc printing. Frankly, if I didn't already have an Epson 835, I would buy this one. My old Canon 820 still chugs along as beautifully as the day I got it (about a zillion years ago).

For $50 more you can get a top-rated laser, their imageCLASS MF4880dw (though oddly, without Airprint - for Airprint in a Canon laser, you have to step up to the big boy: the imageCLASS MF8580Cdw).
.

Well. Have fun!

Gray continuous streaks on lower half of copy using Canon IR 1600


I assume you had the issue before you changed the toner, If so the problem is either the fuser or the Laser.
Do this:
start a print job and after you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top cover to stop the machine. You want to stop the page before it gets to the fuser. May take a couple tries.
remove the toner cart.
the page should be under the cart with the image on it.
If the line is on the page the problem is image development(toner or laser).
If no lines the problem is likely the fusing assm.

Light and streaky copies, and a powder residue.


make sure that the machine is level first. then you will have to change both the drum unit and toner cart with new units not just change the drum in the drum unit.

Fading on one side of the paper - Dell 1815dn laser MFP


The Printhead IS located above the toner cartridge on this model. There is a small opening that allows the laser light to shine through the case to the imaging unit on the toner, but you can not access the the laser without disassembling the printer.

Even though this is a new toner cartridge, it may be defective, even more likely if it is a non-Dell or remanufactured toner. Try reinstalling the old toner cartridge. Even if it prints light because it is low, if it is uniform across the page then the new toner is defective. Return or exchange it with the manufacture.

Problem printing after replacing toner cartridge


We replaced the cartridge and it is still copying in bad quality.
Printing is fine but it is the copying that is the problem.

I'm sorry to tell you, this is likely a drum issue.

You probably need to have a certified engineer examine the machine.

Have you tried speaking with the local service center to see if they have experienced similar issues? It might be free information.
