    Hi all, we just put 3 of these copiers under contract, can anyone confirm that the black spots or “comet trails” are caused by the transfer cleaning assy, bulletins say clean black dev unit, does the transfer belt have to be updated as with dev/ drum units. I have ordered a couple of parts pipe tca and shafts to keep on hand just in case. Also is it mostly black marks because predominantly the waste is usually grey/ black ?

    Yes it is the pipe transfer cleaning assembly and you should also order the transfer belt. When pipe assembly fails the toner backs up in the transfer belt cleaning duct and usually cakes up as solid as a rock blocking the exit shutter from even closing when you pull it out. We have tried cleaning it with limited success, it is easier and more cost effective to just replace the transfer belt after replacing the pipe transfer cleaning assy. And yes the marks are black because when you add all the colors together, CMYK you end up with black. Besides your "comet trails" it may also appear as random "smudges" on the copies/prints. Hope this helps.

    As far as I know, only assemblies are available. But I have successfully pinned another machine. See README:

    Sorry, the PDF file is 2.2MB, just a little too big to attach. Ask if you want it, with email destination. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    What kind of page count are these failures happening at?

    Or no apparent pattern.

    This one was 55K black, 70K color. I'm thinking low usage may be a factor.
