Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a mf8050 color laser printer. I have had nothing but problems with this thing. I have had someone come to the house and work on it 2 times. When one problem solved another pops up. On that problem we finally just quite trying to connect through airport for a network in the house. Well anyway - today The printer will not print the text from a document from the computer. It does print the colorful icons within the text. It copys a document text straight from the printer though. I have turned it off and waited and on. Still it will not print the text just a blank page. Any suggestions?

Usually laser printers rarely give such problems as you have described because they dont use cartridges like deskjet printers. The previous problem of connection has to do with proper networking and unless it is examined in person precise and concise tips cannot be given.
To print the document from the computer try changing the color of the text on the PC to a different color preferably a bright one and attempt to print. Usually this should work. If it prints this means that the toner is getting bad and needs replacement as some of the inks which aid the printer to mix the exact color is not available.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

My Ricoh Aficio SP C420DN Laser Printer shows color tone SC366 and some time SC365, any ideas?


You just have a problem with colour PCU (SC 365 - magenta, SC366 - cyan). The main reason is that toner density is abnormal. Sometimes, when you replace toners, printer receive to much toner for a short time, and after that you have an abnormal toner density (higher). You can check in service mode (hold up and down arrows for 6-7 sec, release them and press ok button) following thing :
choose 2. engine
then with arrows choose 3. process
then choose Vt display,
for each color by default there should by somewhere arround 2.4V. If you see for some colors, for example 0.02V, then this is a problem(to much toner). In this case the only thing that you can do is to restart printer and try to print enough pages, filled with problem color. Usually you can print max 3 pages. Then restart printer and try another 3 pages. Print until the you will be able to print at least 4 pages continuously.
Good luck and remember that this is a technical problem and you should ask someone qualified for the job. I am sure that 80% of service engineers can't repair this issue. But I can.

HP Color Laser Jet 2600n: I have had this continuing problem on & off for the last year. It's a color registration problem, the colors are off-set from one another. I have the latest firmware...


The problem may be that the laser lenses are dirty. This is a common problem with this printer.
You can try removing all the toner cartridges and wiping the glass lens that is behind the toner cartridge towards the back of the printer.
Unfortunately this does not work very often as dust has got internally into the laser assembly and dirtied the mirrors.
There are instructions on how to dismantle the printer to clean the laser on this site but it is not something that everyone should attempt. I have probably done about 60 and it takes me a bit over an hour to do.

Prints gibberish when a multi-page color document is printed


This could be a driver issue. Without knowing exactly how your printer is connected to the network I'm making a rough guess here.

There is a Universal HP Printer driver that could be tried as well as the PCL5, PCL6 and Post Script drivers.

I've had issues with the PCL6 drivers before doing this and I usually install the PCL5 drivers instead.
