    It is a Sharp AR 205. It was working fine but ran out of toner. I purchased a new toner cartridge for it online. They sent me a AL 200 TD cartridge and it fit so I installed it. Now I only get dirty prints with darker lines on them.
    Thanks

    I cleaned it and blew canned air on it. A little toner was blown out but it didn't change the dirty copy at all. I think it is the wrong toner cartridge. The Manual online says it needs a AR 200 TD/AR 200 MT black toner cartridge. The one they sent is an AL 200 TD. While it fits, there must be some reason it doesn't work. It seems like the grid isn't working at all.

    I don't know if you got my earlier email or not. I tried the cleaning
    and air treatment and it didn't work. Still have the dirty copies.
    I believe they sent me the wrong toner cartridge...I researched it and
    was supposed to have an AR 200 TD they sent an AL 200 TD. They
    may be for left and right facing copiers.??. Anyway it was working fine
    when the toner ran out.
    Thanks for your help.

    That is what happen when you replace toner cartridge.

    The charge grid in the drum may be dirty. It might have a piece of dust on it.

    What you need to do is take the charge out, (dont take it apart) hold it up to some light.
    You
    might see some dust particles hanging in the grid. Rub it very
    lightly with finger, do not use a cloth to clean.
    Blow it with a can of
    air.

    Clean the transfer charge as well

    Let me know how it goes.

When using the auto feed, copies come out with black streaks down center of page


If you only get streaks when using the automatic document feeder, then in most cases it is dirt on the scanner glass. You do not state model but if you can also scan flat objects, trying copying a piece of paper that way. If that copy comes out fine, then you definitely have dirty glasss, if that copy has streaks you either have dirt on the scanner itself or a faulty scanner unit.

Black streaks on copy


This can be anything from something on the glass to charge corona dirty, laser dirty, drum or blade or fuser rollers need to be replaced. For the average person, the best you can do yourself is to make sure glass is clean. Question..... do you get this line if you're printing also? If yes then that would eliminate the glass and has to be something inside. If no, then look very carefully at the glass and long skinny glass on top, if it has that, for white out or something on the glass. Sometimes you won't even see spot unless you look at just the right angle. Good luck. Please rate this if it helps.

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

Streaky copies


It probably has several issues - optics dirty, and drum, and blade failing. I would also imagine that even the Solid "blacks" aren't as black as they could be, and that would be the developer. This machine is in the 17 year old range, and I wouldn't spend dime on it

Poor quality copies


Hi, this is most likely caused by a worn or faulty drum.

Our Cannon MP 500 is leaving a 1/4" wide black streak on the back side of copies. I have cleaned off the cartridge heads, replaced the ink tanks cleaned the heads to no avail. What is the problem and how...


HI Foster,
The problem is not with the print head. Print a blank page and if you are still getting the streak. Something is probably trapped in the printer or the rollers are dirty.

The streaks are typically a sign of a toner drum going bad, or possibly just dirty, or even caused by the toner being low, as you have mentioned it to be. 1 way I know to 'clean' the drums is to have the printer run multiple blank pages. If your software will not allow you to print blank pages, type a single character by using this little trick, hold down the ALT key, and type 2 5 5 on the number pad in a blank text document. This will allow you to print the "blank" document, I would suggest about 10 copies. This should help for a short duration, and doesn't use any toner.

Hope this helps!

Blank Streaks


streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.
