Anyone else having problems with after market fixing films ?, I'm getting double imaging( blurry copies) after 15 -20k sometimes much less, replacing the film remedies the problem, these films are from precision roller. i found ones made in germany and hoping these work better, also ordered some from Q2 products that look different then the ones from precision roller, any thoughts?
Yes, these non OEM films are very unreliable on this series (they work OK on the IR2200 series) the main problem is the amount of grease & making sure you clean off all the old grease before appling new grease.
Best to fit the OEM fixing film assíy, yes they are more expensive but they run for at least 250k, Iíve got a few out still that have done 500k so thatís like half the life of the machine! Also regularly replacing the heat sink roller helps prolong the life of the OEM films.
Its the grease they supply, not the amount or the film itself. Katuns film and grease are pretty good. A little more expensive though. If you've ever dealt with Polek & Polek in NJ theres are pretty good too. I'd love to buy the grease somewhere but you have to get the right stuff.
Most techs here have "discovered" that the fuser OIL (do u still remember them?) work much better than these grease when applied to the fuser film. Unlike grease they do not easily dry up, they are smoother, long lasting, resilient and offer good protection to the fuser film. Getting them is the problem though, as they are not available on the market.
BEST Office Products - Canon & HP Parts & Supplies - Home I can confirm that these films are standing up for me, 80k pages going strong. I asked him about these and he said they supply someone with thousands of these. Either Katun or TSA. He would not tell me who. They appear to come with Krytox grease. I add a little extra to what they supply. Krytox GPL-205, we discussed this years ago on Canon esupport forum.
