Canon imageclass MF8170c print problem

Hello,

My color laser printer is only printing half of the page that is supposed to. It slowly fades out as the document reads from right to left. I think that it might have something to do with the drum cartridge but I am not sure. There are no error messages or alarms active on the machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hello,




    My MF8170c is doing something similar.  Color printing is normal on the right side, but fades out on the left side of the page as if only the magenta is faintly printing...sort of pinkish.  The black, however, prints evenly across the sheet!  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh.

I found that everytime my mf8170 would print only half the page it was because I was printing on the wrong size paper... try checking your properties and making sure that you are printing on the same size paper as what is in the tray you are pulling from.

My Printer started randomly printing blank pages when looking for color. Prints color every now and again, but generally blank. Prints fine when I set to Black/white only.


It is more likely that the settings need to be changed on a print job to job basis in the program you are generating the content from. There are usually defaults set in the software and you need to check these settings every time you print.

My Canon MF4150 is printing fine but when it prints a page, the content on top get duplicated (faded) below.


If you're getting the image repeated further down the page, but faded, it's most likely a fuser problem. The rollers in the fuser (or the fuser itself) will need to be replaced.

Color is offset and blurred. There is no problem printing in black. Printing test page shows the same symptoms.


Hello
The color of HP LJ 2600n fades due to following reasons
1. the color cartridge near to empty 2. due to dust on reflection mirrors inside the printer
if the color cartridges are OK, then you need help of HP technician support, because cleaning of mirrors is very technical in nature for 2600n.
Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.
You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach easily.
Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

I also had this error message. Cleaning contacts and restarting made me able to copy/print.

Page prints with black streaks


Black streaks are more then likely caused by dirt, dust and dry ink. Try using a damp cloth and clean the excess dirt/ink. Some printers have an auto clean setting, try that as well!

Imageclass mf8170c - not printing clear


My friend, you have a good Tech Guy. I would suggest you speak with him before you speak to the guy that sells parts for your printer.

There might be stuff that can be done with your printer if you continued to fiddle around with it in your basement or garage, but alas, this is your office (your business?) ... can you afford to mess with it any more?

Be happy, listen to your Tech Guy, cut the loss, get a new printer. You might be able to recover part of your cost if you put your printer on Craig's list, e-bay or sell it for parts elsewhere or, donate it. Did I mention Be Happy?

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com
