Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

Colour lines across the page

Hello, sorry to bother you. I replaced the drum on my AL1100 but the printouts have horizontal coloured (the 4 toner colours)across the page (from edge to edge). They are randomly printed but on average 7 thick lines across the page. The lines have been encountered even before the drum was changed, in fact I thought it was the drum. The black toner is a little low but otherwise all is fine. Could you recommend something please? Thanks

    I have lines across any photo that I have printed. The lines are three quarters apart and run horizontally. These lines are very light and appear on photos only. I use an Epson Stylus CX6000 three-in-one printer. Please help. Thank you.

Hey Paul, Can you post a scan of the printed paper? It may help diagnose your problem. The most common cause of lines accross the page is either the PhotoConductor Unit or the 2ND BTR Assy.

MFC-9840 printing Yellow/Red/Blue strips in background. Any ideas why?

This is caused mainly by leaving the Corona Wire sliders anywhere other than where the arrows on the slider meets the arrows on the Drum Units. This leaves solid lines of colour down the length of the page (one per colour with the slider in the wrong place) if it is leaving more than the single line on the page it is probably leaking cartridges.

These particular cartridges are known for their ability to leak badly (OEM and Remanufactured cartridges do it). The only option for a leaking cartridge is to replace it and clean out the machine with a lint free cloth preferably a 'Toner Grabber' cloth. If you nee one of the toner grabber cloths then talk to your local cartridge refilling place for one. If they refil toner cartridges there then they probably have them or can suggest a different option.

Canon LBP 2410 Lazer Colour Printer -

Printing not dark enough or varied in darkness
If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer.

Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down, as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed.

If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat surface.

Horizontal black lines
A horizontal black line on the printout is probably the result of a dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant black lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part might be causing the problem. Table A
Distance between lines
Faulty part
0.5”
Registration assembly

Lower registration roller

Toner cartridge developer roller
2.56”
Lower fusing assembly roller
3.16”
Upper fusing assembly roller
3.75”
Toner cartridge photo drum

Regularly spaced splotches
If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum has a larger diameter than the fusing roller.

Vertical black line on edge of page
This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

Rainbow Color Streaks down the printouts that get worse the more pages printed

A line coming in print out konica minolta

If the line is across the page and at regular intervals this is usually a mark on the drum / web or cartridge drum - can be residue from printing labels (especially if you reuse sheets). If it is a particular colour then it is likely to be that cartridge which has problems.

If line is top to bottom of page then this will be either excess toner in printer or faulty cartridge - again if the line is a particular colour look at that cartridge first.

Hi, my HP2600N colour laser jet leaves two 1cm wide coloured smudge lines length ways on all my A4 prints. The printer is getting to about 2 years old now so i'm fearing that some major part needs...

Hi,
Dots, Lines and smudges on the printouts are due to deteriorating cartridges and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines.
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer is clean and there is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots.
Moreover, streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Replace the Cartridge or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional.
Rest assure that the printer is fine and needs no major replacement.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Black horizontal lines in printout

Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Line across my laptop screen

The graphics part of the laptop is going out. Recommend just replacing the laptop, it would be cheaper.
