This is caused by a failure of either the drum or the transfer roller - they are either dirty or their life expectancy is very close to the end. You can press #*C* respectively, then press 22 start 1 start respectively then it will show you all the counters including drum and developer for the 4 colors - if they are close to their rated life (100,000 (black) / 60,000 (color) average pages) you should replace them.
It would help if you would also buy the full service manual for your printer , it costs $14

    F1-11 - finisher bundle process motor malfunction = the motor that powers the bundle mechanism has encountered an abnormal resistance and stopped. You will need to open the bundle mechanism to investigate the origin of the fault, the service manual is mandatory for that.
    There is an inconsistency between the use data and units life counter: the use data shows BW/Col > 156,005/107,793 which is well beyond the recommended life estimates > 100,000/60,000 , but the life counter shows values well below that - 0xx is the part from 100 of life used - on all around half. If the drum, fuser and developer were replaced at the correct times then the data's match, if not then the life counters were reseted without the actual parts being replaced - they must be all replaced immediately.

Hi tbs0,

Have you tried cleaning the corona's? If not, please follow the steps below.

1. Please open the front door/cover.

2. Press the green button located in the center upper.

3. You will now see the waste toner collector, please remove it.

4. Look for the cleaning rods, four green knobs small diameter.

5. Now pull them out about a foot and they will stop. Push them back in for four or five times each color.

6. Look for a wand on the door. The wand fits the pad down in the slot below the green rods. Slide it in and out to clean the laser.

If this procedure does not work you have problems with your drums or transfer rollers.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
