    Exclamation FS-C5016n Led Array

    I got bad led array on one of the drum units, all i get is tick marks where that color is to appear on the print. I've changed it from drum to drum, and the problem follows. Is there any way to fix the led array, or does any one have off an old printer?

    Thanks,
    Luigi

    There is not serviceable parts on the printhead it must be replaced.

    Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.

    It must be replaced and they are expensive. by the time you buy one of these and a few other parts you can almost justify a new printer. The new generation of that engine is so much better that it is worth looking into before you invest in some spendy parts

    Question Where is the LED array? How do we clean it pse?

    Hi, We just bought a second hand FS-c5016N and it prints blury and patchy.

    A Kyocera tech said it's the LED array that needs cleaning.

    Can some one tell me how to get to the LED array and clean it please?

    Also can we use metho, alcohol, distilled water? Cotton wool, tissue etc?
    How sturdy is the LED array?

    We've bought this to produce newsletters for our local radio and computer group.

    tnx - Ken

    You need to remove the toner cartridges,dev and drum units to access the L.E.D's.x 4.Once you have carefully removed the L.E.D's (be careful of the connectors as they are very flimsy) clean the L.E.D face with toothpaste.Alcohol is fine,but we have found that toothpaste works better every time and saves you having to repeat the procedure if the alcohol never completely cleaned it the first time!.First time i did this took me well over an hour from start to finish.

    Question Next problem is a crease down the centre of paper

    Hi, thanks for that info.

    I spent a good 5 hours carefully disassembling cleaning and reassembling the printer.

    We now have reasonably nice clean prints. I think the rest is from the terrible amount of toner spilt through the machine.

    Our last problem is that we are getting a terrible crease down the centre of the paper. Sometimes we get a perfect print. But mostly we get this horrible running crease.

    Any idea's? we looked at the two orange fuser rollers and they look fine.

    You can see test prints etc at the following link.

    For the creasing problem you will need to replace the fixing assy. There are two levers that the transfer unit push on when istalled to apply pressure to the rollers. They are either bent or the busings are falling apart due to age.

    Thumbs up RE: Paper creasing.

    Hi, Thanks for the info.

    Do you mean the pressure levers, bushes and or possibly bearings in the Fuser unit?

    OK. We will look at this.

    Thanks.
