You only have to make single color copies with each color CMYK
and check all the copies if only the black and white copies is smeary
then replace only the black the drum unit.

SOURCE: Sharp AR BC320 not printing correct colors

First of all, this copier doen't have print heads that spray ink like an inkjet. Its print heads (4, one for each color) are LED arrays, all they do is emit light. They can get dirty, but not clogged with ink.

Suggestion: Make a color copy at the copier, then print a color picture from a workstation. If the copied page looks good and the printed one doesn't, the copier is probably OK. Reinstall the print driver. I suggest you download the latest driver just for effect.

This worked for me at a customers site just today.

SOURCE: copies and prints in color are black procesed, but in black are ok

Using CMY Color produces a Processed Black.
Using only K will produce a Black.
In the print driver on a PC change your default setting to Black, from the machine you can set it to use only black as well.
That Patch is on the transfer belt. which it will alwyas do, that is what color machines do.

Install the print driver twice and set one driver s Color Mode to color and one to greyscale. This setting can be accessed by right clicking on the print driver and selecting Printing Preferences, click on the Color tab and set the Color Mode appropriately.

Hi,

it seems that your print head is the problem you can try to clean it first..
but if you already try to do this no other choice is to have a service center o change it for you.

thanks,

SOURCE: Big streaks on copies from Sharp SF-7800 copier, not fax machine.

You probably have some build up on the glass, which happens if you use the auto feeder most often. Alcohol type cleaner will remove with a very softcloth. One small dot will look like a long streak on a feeder, much like a streaked fax. The other issue is the photoreceptor belt has nicks or is dirty eaither way it needs to be replaced. Try the cleaning first and you may have to look hard for the small dots built up on the glass.

Why is my Phaser 8400 leaving black smears on my printed pages and after running remove print smears, it doesn't correct the problem.


Have you looked at the roll in your maintenance kit? It may be dry in that area and not applying enough lubricant on the drum. Or you have some contaminant on the print head wiper blade or the mylar strip in the maintenance kit. Sounds like something is making contact with the drum causing your problem.

Epson Stylus C86 smearing


Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.

Failure to Allign


This could be the Fuser Assembly. The Fuser is the unit that heats up and makes the toner ahere to the paper. The fact that it is smearing, means that the Fuser is not heating correctly. I would call for service on it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
