Cannot reseat imaging unit in xerox phaser 6130 printer

You can find answers to your Xerox questions at
Solution : Replace the Imaging Unit CAUTION: Do not use warm water or cleaning solvents to remove Toner (Dry Ink) from your skin or clothing. This will set the Toner and make it difficult to remove. If any Toner gets on your skin or clothing, use a brush to remove the Toner, blow it off, or wash it off with cold water and mild soap.
Do not drop or shake the Imaging Unit after it has been removed from the printer as Toner spills can occur.
Do not expose the Imaging Unit to any light source for more than five minutes. Prolonged exposure to light may damage the unit. Cover the Imaging Unit with a light shield (such as a sheet of paper). Do not touch the shiny blue Transfer Belt.
  1. Power OFF the printer using the power switch located on the left side of the printer, toward the back. Press the power switch to the OFF (O) position.

  2. Press the button on the top right side of the printer to open the Front Cover.

  3. Locate the Imaging Unit, and then turn the four twist-locks to the left to unlock the unit.

  4. Grasp the Imaging Unit by its peach-colored pull-tabs on the top edge. Pull the unit forward and up, and then out of the printer.

  5. Place the used Imaging Unit in a bag and make sure the bag is properly sealed before discarding or recycling.
  6. Remove the new Imaging Unit from the shipping container and the sealed package.

    CAUTION: Do not remove the orange protective cover from the front of the unit until it has been installed in the printer. This will protect the Transfer Belt from being touched during installation.
  7. Place the Imaging Unit on a flat surface. Hold the unit firmly with one hand and with the other hand grasp the end tab of one sealing tape and pull the tape straight out, horizontally. Repeat for the remaining tapes; there are eight tapes in total. Make sure none of the tapes have broken. Discard of the tapes as normal office waste.

    NOTE: If any tape breaks off with the remainder inside the Imaging Unit, stop the installation and contact Support.
  8. Grasp the new Imaging Unit by its peach-colored pull-tabs on the top edge and install the unit in the printer. Make sure to insert the unit into the guides in the printer, and then push the unit all the way back into the printer.

  9. Turn the four twist-locks to the right, to lock the unit.
  10. Pull the orange protective cover out and then down from the top, center of the Imaging Unit.
  11. Close the Front Cover.
  12. Power ON (') the printer. A 'Ready to Print' message will be displayed on the Display Screen.

My Brother MFC-3240C printer does not print crisp images. Colors are washed out and lines run though the images. I reinstalled the CD and no luck. Can you tell me what to fix?

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there. Better than throwing the printer.

Good Luck

I bought a used Color Laser printer, the HP1600, and I have just installed three brand new color cartridges. When I attempted to print the color came out washed and very faded and you could see it being...

This could a problem with the laser scanner assembly. It gets contaminated with toner and dust so reduceing the laser intensity which in turn causes the image to be fainter and gives it a washed out appearance. You would need to remove the scanner and clean the lenses and mirrors for each toner cartridge. The laser scanner box is one unit with four mirrors and four lenses in it.

HI, I have a clp-300 and it is printing black only on the right side, but the left is completely washed out. it works fine when I use a color other than black

If you the image is faded and your toner supply is good, the problem is the developer blades in the imaging unit. During the normal use of the printer, there is a buildup of toner that sticks on the developer blade. The developer blade meters the amount of toner that gets to the drum that ultimately makes it to the paper. As the toner buildup increases on the blade, less and less toner that gets to the drum cause the image to fade.

To fix this problem you will need to disassemble the imaging unit and clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. I have clean my blades and I have a document to show you if you are handy.

If you could possibly manage to access the machine status menu and have it print to check the drum's life, fuser life, developer, etc.. pls refer. Kindly replace the toner cartridge accordingly use the menu settings when replacing any color if needed. Please print solid image or block in each color Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Balck. Well see if what color causing the problem. Please let me know the print result it may be; washed out or too light, too bright or black, double image, or not clean. Don't hesistate to contact me again about the result.

For Flexer and Guest - The Imaging Drum Assy is the 5-th consumable for your printer. U can buy it as well as any toner cartridge. U can find it in the front of the 4 toner carousel with a green plastic cover. Push it to the back of the printer and pull it out straight up. The new one has orange stripes and plastics that you should remove. The Imaging Drum's life is about 20k pages (black with 5% coverage) and 5k page (colour 15% coverage)
