Hi , if you make a copy through the document feeder and there is a line it is on the mirrors , they need to be cleaned , but if you do a printout from your pc or a config psge from the copier , it could be only one of two thing , either your hotroller is getting worn (it normaly wares were the thermoster touches the roller )or tour pcu unit has made its hield and needs to be replaced , you can open the pcu to see if there is any dirt , but i would not recomend this as it is a very dirty job and if you are not experienced you will end up scratching the drum and you;ll end up having to change the pcu in anycase .

Black line on copies


Check the drum history? If the yield is not yet reached, you should clean the charge roller, cleaning blade brush and cleaning blade. Remember to vacuum beneath the cleaning blade! See if that works, otherwise you should call a techie to replace the drum. If yield is not reached they will charge you for a new drum.

Photocopies are not clear even after increasing image intensity.


if you have over approx. 60-100k copies on the machine it sounds like you may need regular maintaince on the machine.
to check how many copies you have press the user tools/counter button and then press counter.

Which feeder? Is it in the document feeder or the paper tray?

Could need a pm to replace the drum, cleaning blade, and possibly developer to get rid of the dirty copy and/or the scanner section should be cleaned as well by cleaning the glass as well as the mirrors underneath the glass.
