    Kyocera Taskalfa 4002i gives out light prints.

    Hi guys,
    I installed this 4002i only five months ago, and now it's giving out light prints. We've tried changing the maintenance kit, but still no difference. Any suggestions?

    Could be dirty mirrors inside the laser unit. What kind of office is in? Assuming you cleaned the optics?

    That's the thing....whether we photocopy or print from a computer, the image is light. The office doesn't have air conditioning. Any other suggestions?

    I have had to replace a black developing unit on a 2 series color box that went bad. Was making light copies on half the page.

    If they smoke clean every mirror and slit glass in machine you my still have to remove cover and clean the polygon mirrors in the laser unit

    No A/C fresh paper?

    Dealing with the same thing, 4002i giving out light prints, different densities on internal prints within one hour. I did a forced toner add in U132 and it says the toner is empty, though it isn't. I think it is a toner clog, but I'm not sure how to get to it.

    This is usually caused by the locking shaft (the grey plastic pin you push inside after inserting dev unit) on the dev unit. It can break inside and doesn't stay in lock position. In that case you need to replace the dev unit.
