Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

The lower part of the second BTR houses waste toner. Yours if FULL. Yes that will cause your sesors to fault. So would the amount of paper dust that has also contaminated this unit. This unit looks to be in poor condition and requires a cleaning. I would be embarresed even to show anyone this photo.

Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

The 2nd BTR is the main problem but there are other issues too. We have 2 V80s and started having this issue after about a year. It’s definitely worse on some stocks. Xpri digital silk is about the worst we found. It caused the issue almost immediately. Futura Digital has been very stable. The main thing that helped us was our tech got us new sets of feed rolls. Instead of the white feed rolls that have the double rolls with a gear in between, the ones he gave us are black rubber. He said they’re from the new Iridesse. We only use these feed rolls on silk stocks. This in combination with the new style 2nd BTR and new MVMs installed has made a tremendous difference. We’ve managed to run thousands of sheets of silk stocks with no issues. It does still happen from time to time though but no where near as much.
Our lease is up at the end of this year. We were looking at upgrading to a 3100 with the new style booklet maker. The xerox salesman was really pushing the new Iridesse though. They made us a deal on it we couldn’t refuse. It was almost cheaper to go with the Iridesse then the 3100 so it was a no brainer. The Iridesse has a deburrer roller in the 2 main feed trays. It skims the edges of the stock with Xerox believes causes the problem with the Versants.

Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

We have the same issue 

the 2nd btr is easy to take out then with care take the bottom of it off and empty it...I do this when the lines first start showing up 

there is still something wrong with the machine however ...it goes through black toner fast and the waist toner box fills up with in a week or two

Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

now I don't take the box off any more but instead I just take the metal sheet guide off of the top (there is 4 screws but only take the center 2 screws off to remove as an assembly) Now you can remove the cleaning blade then take it out side to a suitable trash can turn it over and shake all the toner out then clean the cleaning blade and put it back together

Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

I realise this post was some time back but jsut come across it after having repalced teh unit every couple of months.  As a point of clarity, does this workaround work on a unit already printing the marks, or as a preventative?

 

Thanks

Re: 2ND BTR Issue SOLUTION

it depends on how many clicks are on it...if the unit is new it will start making marks when it fills up with waist toner (about every two weeks for us) then take it out, apart and empty it but this only works about three or four times then the roller and cleaning blade will start to wear then it will make marks clean or not ...new rollers and cleaning blades are availble but it's not an easy task and if mistakes are made putting back together it kick some hidden error code that gives false fuser unit codes and then you stuck
