Question about OKIFAX 4580 Plain Paper LED Fax
I have an OKI 4580 fax machine and a few months ago it started to print out pages lighter. Over the next few weeks the pages got lighter and lighter until now when I receive a fax only blank pages come out. I have checked the toner and it is full and I have a new drum installed. I've tried getting on there website but it's no help at all. I am at a loss. Please help!
Does this happen when you perform a test print such as an activity report or config page? if it does you may have a transfer roller issue. The transfer roller is the long black spongy roller directly under the drum, the metal rod in the roller conducts a charge that interacts with the drum. If the roller is dirty (usually chocked up with toner) the necessary charge is diminished and the image will be lighter. You will have to remove the roller in order to clean it, (TURN THE POWER OFF) there is a bendable plastic tab at the right side end of the roller that will release the roller. I personally drench the roller with metho and then wrap a rag around it and squeeze the metho/toner out (dont do this with lexmark rollers, they deform) let dry and give it a try, also check the end of the metal rod and where it connects for contamination.
