I've had the printer (bought new) since March 2022 and I've only printed ~160 pages
It's obviously not cleaning these units properly - otherwise I wouldn't be seeing these marks on all printed output.
I shouldn't need to order replacements so quickly should I?
I came to the forums because I thought that this was the preferred way to contact Xerox Support ... should I be using a different contact method? (UK purchase)
To determine the cause of the defect:
Component Repeating Distance (Metric) Repeating Distance (Imperial)
|Accumulator Belt||Every four pages of A4 or Letter size paper printed LEF, or on every other page of Tabloid size paper printer SEF.|
|Fuser||84 mm||3.3 in.|
|Fuser or Imaging Unit||94 mm||3.7 in.|
|Transfer Roller||88 mm||3.5 in.|
|Imaging Unit||44 mm||1.7 in.|
|Developer Roller||28.3 mm||1.1 in.|
NOTE: If it is determined that the Accumulator Belt or Developer Roller is the cause of the repeating defect, contact Support for additional assistance. All other components can be replaced without Service.
Earlier this year I bought a C235 to replace an aging inkjet.
I've noticed that there's a repeating defect pattern on the right edge of the pages I print.
I can't recall if it's been doing this since day 1, but I notice it whenever I print .. then promptly forget to follow-up and look for a solution.
Looking at the printer manual I think it's an issue with the transfer module. I measured the distance between the marks and found that although they don't start from a constant distance from the top of the page they're all 44mm apart.
I am still using the initial "starter" toner cartridges, and have not attempted any maintenance on the unit in any way.
Other than "will need to replace toner soon" there are no obvious errors or concerns.
