I have a Dell 1320c color laser printer. It has been working great up till this past week.
It has started printing lightly on the left hand margin. Only about an inch in.
I have heard that this could be a bad image drum but this printer only has 3050 pages over its life.
I really don't want to have to spend close to $150 for an image drum if there is another solution.
Any thoughts?

A close inspection of the corona transfer wire area may show a build up of excess toner,  not allowing the charge to transfer to the paper.  Two other faults could be the cause but both are part of the image transfer drum.

 FWIW Dell has hardware forums you might want to try if you can't resolve the problem here.  

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Your laser unit likely has 1 or more lenses/mirrors dusted with toner.  Repair requires extensive disassembly to remove the laser unit in order to clean its lenses and mirrors with q tips.  It is a job that can be done in 2-3 hours, but requires someone who is careful and patient.

Thanks. Is there a breakdown on the steps to get to the mirrors?
