Question about Canon imageCLASS MF8170C All-In-One Laser Printer

Imageclass mf8170c - not printing clear

I have an imageclass mf8170c that is 6-7 years old. The print quality is very poor. Vertically on the page, the print is okay on one side (the right +/- 2" fading away as you move left) and blank on the other. I have replaced all of the cartridges and the drum. My tech guy at the office says it it time to buy a new printer and just throw this away. If that is the case, I wish I would have done this before buying all new cartridges and the drum.

My friend, you have a good Tech Guy. I would suggest you speak with him before you speak to the guy that sells parts for your printer.

There might be stuff that can be done with your printer if you continued to fiddle around with it in your basement or garage, but alas, this is your office (your business?) ... can you afford to mess with it any more?

Be happy, listen to your Tech Guy, cut the loss, get a new printer. You might be able to recover part of your cost if you put your printer on Craig's list, e-bay or sell it for parts elsewhere or, donate it. Did I mention Be Happy?

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

My Printer started randomly printing blank pages when looking for color. Prints color every now and again, but generally blank. Prints fine when I set to Black/white only.


It is more likely that the settings need to be changed on a print job to job basis in the program you are generating the content from. There are usually defaults set in the software and you need to check these settings every time you print.
