Do you mean blurry, like toner isn baked, or ...
If yes, dispite the good conditions of fixing roller, you may want to replace bushings of fixing rollers too. Because they do not generate enough pressure.

How blurry? Like toner can be wiped of or like the letters are verry light?

Did you check pressure between fixing and pressure roller, it could be the bad bushing that causes the problem.

If they are very light, clean optics.

Delete the printer and reinstall the driver. Get the latest driver from www.canon.com/support that works with your operating system.

Yes, if one of the switches in the paper path is trapped in the down position.

Sounds like a bad power supply. The clicking is a solid state relay coming on, but it's either not putting out anything from there (ac 120v power supply) or the DC power supply is bad. Not a user fix...sorry! Call a qualified service tech anytime you are dealing with power issuses!

The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.

The machine optics are probably dirty and needs to be cleand. You can try to take out the drum unit and locate a small glass strip that sits above the drum in the frame of the machine. if you can find it, try to clean it and this should help some without taking the machine apart.

in this situation only two things i am aware of that can cause this prob... 1 bad developer unit, or the drum for the machine has done its time

Just fyi, a Canon PC-6e is a copier that is about ten + years old of a model... The drum unit will make the copies better.... But, you most likely need to clean the optic's. Have you tried to make the copies lighter??? If I am correct, there is a small botton on the control pannel that will turn... It will make the copies light one way and darker the other way... Good Luck

The laser shutter is faulty. The laser unit is faulty. The potential measurement PCB is faulty. The DC controller PCB is faulty.
The primary charging output used for print output and the drum surface potential after laser output has been made are about 200 V (generating solid black images).
