    mx-m565n Cleaning blade flip

    I have a lot of cleaning blade flipping after doing a PM on those model & I saw a tech bulletin that say you have to put stearic acid powder on the drum when replacing it . I never did that on any sharp.

    Every other tech I speak to don't seem to have that problem & they don't apply stearic acid powder...

    Question 1 : Am I the only one getting flipping blade ?

    Question 2 : Do you guys put stearic acid powder when you change the drum?

    Thank you

    Re: mx-m565n Cleaning blade flip

    The company I work for has pretty much abandoned the 560mk kits. Those cleaning blades are junk. Instead, we use the 503mk kits. The charger grid and saw tooth are the same, but you have to transplant them into the frame of the 565 charger, as the frames are different between the series. I have also noticed that if the blade flips bad enough, it can cause a lot of stress on the process unit frame, possibly causing more flips in the future as it is tweaked out of shape. The process units are cheap enough that I carry one with me in the event I have a bad flip; ie...drum completely locked and wedged.

    As a side note, I don't put any extra powder on the drum or blade, other than what is already on there, along with yellow toner.

    Hope this helps!

    I never put a blade in the Drum or the ITB WITHOUT powdering it... you can use yellow toner AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T HAVE DEV POWDER IN IT.

    This has been a very solid unit for us. Basic mechanics and zero board issues. I am not aware of any blade flipping either. The only thing that stumped us was the transport rollers above the fuser get concave causing toner build up on fuser guides. But even that is a 10 minute fix.

    I'm with JR2ALta. We have quite a few of these with 1M copies and have not had this issue so far. Use the 560MK kit without any problems. Don't use any additional powder just what is on the drum to start with unless it doesn't turn smoothly by hand then I will add some additional powder when I put it back together until I can get the drum to rotate easily. Wonder what could be causing your problem.

    Good luck.
