White band running thru copy

This machine is about a year old and i replaced the toner not very long ago and have hardly used it.
on every copy i make there is a white band running vertically thru the copy. You can still read the text, but it is lighter than the rest of the copy and there is a distinctive band that goes thru the middle that is white.

I have a mfc-8440, 5 years old, low usage, 50% drum life, new toner cartridge. The problem is that the contrast of the printed copy does not change regardless of the setting using the path...


This is very easy to solve. Remove the drum and toner cartridge. Look into the machine where they sat. Now look up and you will see (a little aukward but its there) a glass plate the width of an A4 sheet of paper. Run your finger accross it. Look at your finger and will probably be dirty. This is the window the laser beam passes thru to hit the drum. When its dirty it does not allow enough ;light to the drum hence a weak beam and light printing.
simples?

The light and dark banding going horizontally accross the page is usually caused by the drum unit. This is the smaller of the 2 cartridges and it sits just to the right of where the toner sits. If you have a spare drum unit, replace it. This should resolve the problem. The Toner cartridge can also caus this but if you have tried 2 DIFFERENT units with the same banding then it must not be the toner.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Fax copy is streaky, almost banded looking. Copies the same too, streaky looking. Toner seems to be full, drum was replaced about 10 months ago with an after market one.


If they are black streaks and they are always in the exact same place, open the cover and clean the skinny little scanning glass. It might be ink or lint. If it's white streaks then it's in the same place but it's dried correction tape or fluid, etc.

XEROX C20 - Leaves a blank stripe down the side of the copy


Yeah the c20 is not sturdy at all. But that aside. Some things to do.
1, Unplug the machine, remove the back cover and on the right side you will see the main board.On the top portion of the board you will see a white ribbon cable. Unplug it and look at the silver contacts on the very end of that cable. Then reseat that cable. That may be the problem. More than likely though you have either a dirty mirror in the scanner. Which would require removing and cleaning the scanner thoroughly.
The laser may also need cleaning. The toner cartridges for that machine leave a lot to be desired also. When you get a bad copy remove the toner, shake it from side to side and see if that fixes the problem temporarily. The blades that put the proper amount of ink on the toner roll fail often.
The scanner failing would be my first thought.
Also go to Xerox.com, select support and drivers, then enter C20 in the search box. Then go to drivers and downloads and install the newest firmware for the machine. You may have a machine software issue.
I have worked on that machine since day one of its existence, I never did care for it. It is a cheap machine made by Sharp corporation for Xerox. It really isn't a Xerox product, they just stuck their sticker on it.

Xerox XC1020 White Bands running across copied page 4" apart


The metering blades in those cartridges go bad and do not allow the ink to get to the page. Look at the front of the toner cartridge, is should be a solid consistent black all the way across, if its streaky, not consistent all the way across replace the toner.
The other problem could be a dirty laser. If replacing the toner doesnt work let me know, I will tell you how to remove and clean the laser.

Hello mine is really an FT3713


This sounds very scary...
Your Machine is very old..
What did you do last to the Copier to get it in this condition?


All you should have done is empty the Waste Toner bottle, and do SP83.

Hello Bob,
Where are you located? You should be able to find the toner for this machine. Have you tried www.precisionroller.com ?
I am almost positive that they carry the toner and also consumable part as well as replacement parts.
One of the reasons the copies might be dirty, is that the optics, charge wires, cleaning blade, drum, and or fuser unit might need some parts replaced. Without seeing a copy of what the machine is actually doing, or looking at the machine, it's hard to pin point exactly what is going on.
If you have any questions with the machine, feel free to post any questions and I will be glad to help you.
Good luck.
Hope this helps.
Mac =)

Pagepro printer toner empty problem


1. It tries to pump toner into a reservoir. If it doesn't activate a full sensor for the reservoir, it shows toner low. 2. Take the toner out and shake it hard about 10 times, this will make any settled toner loose, and should solve this. The problem is normally caused by old toner (your supplier might have had it on their shelf for a year or two).
