I have a CS 3035 that puts tiny black specs about 2 1/2 inches wide the entire length of the page. I have cleaned everything. Optics, Fuser, Glass, Rollers, you name it. I have even completed a drum refresh. No marks on the drum. It looks great. Any help would be fantastic. Thanks

Re: Copy star 3035
The drum unit may need to have the toner collection blade replaced. not the cleaning blade for the drum but the one below it that catches the toner cleaned off the drum. if this blade is old or damaged it losses its seal to the drum and drops tiny specks of toner onto the page.
Hope this helps...

Could be optics needing to be cleaned. First I would rule out the toner cartridge. If you have a spare swap it out or remove your current cartridge, turn it over and slide open the "gate" that covers the drum cyclinder. The drum should be clean all the way across it's surface. If you see toner on each end then that is where your dark sides are coming from. If the drum is clean then most likely you have dust building up on the optics mirrors. One test for this is to manually lighten the exposure control on the operation panel and then recheck your copy quality. This may cause the rest of the copy to be light but if the dark sides goes away then your optics are dirty.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
3 possible causes:
1) The optics are dirty thus making your copy darker. The test for this is to manually lighten the copy using the exposure control on the panel of your copier. Lighten the copy several positions and see if the copy gets better. If it does then the optics need to be cleaned.
2) The copier is overtoned. This means that the toner to developer concentration is to high. This will require a trained technician to lower the toner ratio and then recalibrate the toner/developer ration using the F8 mode.
3) If the shading gets much worse as you run say 10 copies in a row then the drum cleaning blade would be the cause. So run 10 copies of something and compare the first copy out with the tenth copy out. Do you see a dramatic difference in the amount of background or "shading"?
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.
Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699 Thanks
make sure the glass is clean it sounds like you either have a dirty scan glass or the wires need to be cleaned there should be a cleaner on the front cover of the macin that you you pull out and slide back abd fourth to clean it
Pull the main charge unit out of machine. Take cleaner (included with toner) and clean. --Look at front and rear for toner build -up on the charge grid. This build -up causes a short. After cleaning, reinstall and run.
your page is still outside of the imaging area. You will have to position the page length wise down the glass and us 8 1/2 X 11 R cassette (R=Reduction) that is what that cassette is used for if you don't have that size cassette use the bypass feature on the machine.
Either the Fuser/Heating unit is bad, or the optics are dirty.
What you can try to do to narrow it down, is to make a copy but.. STOP the machine in mid process by turning the power off. This will create a paper jam in the machine. If timed properly, your copy should be 1/2 way through the machine with some image on it. (Make sure that you are trying to copy something on the glass). The copy is not FUSED, so the toner will wipe off so be careful not to rub the page against your clothes/sleeve. IF the black line is on the page at this point, the problem is not in the fuser but probably in the fiber optics. If the problem is in the optics and will need to be cleaned. If the black line is NOT on the page at this point, then the fuser unit is bad and needs to be replaced.
Let me know how the copy comes out when you stop the machine in midway and I can see if i can give you any more suggestions. Good luck.
