Savin 8020 add toner troubleshooting Tips
In this article we will discuss the Savin 8020 add toner troubleshooting issue, how the toner supply unit works, what goes wrong and how to go about fixing it.
Explanation of how the Savin 8020 Toner Supply Unit Works
Whenever a toner tube is placed within the bottle holder unit (A) and the equipment is put in correctly, toner shutter (B) relocates against the side (C) of the PCU. Once the toner bottle holder handle (D) is put back in the initial location, the cap (E) on the toner bottle is taken away and kept in place by the chuck (F).
The toner supply mechanism transfers toner via the container to the development unit. The toner bottle possesses a spiral pattern (G) that helps advance toner to the development unit.
When the toner bottle holder is released, the chuck releases the toner bottle cover into its proper location to avoid toner from dispersing.
The moment the bottle holder unit is pulled out to supply a fresh toner bottle, the toner shutter shuts to close the outlet as a result of pressure from a spring.

Possible cause of the Savin 8020 add toner message
1. Empty toner cartridge
2. Defective toner – (Toner that has gotten moisture in it can clump and not work through the supply unit.)
3. Defective toner supply unit
4. Defective toner clutch
5. Defective developer unit or sensor.
Those are probably the 5 most popular causes but, off course, with any problem, there is always more things that can come up.
Probably the quickest and most affordable solution past the toner cartridge may be the toner supply unit. When you reverse the toner lock lever the supply unit takes out the cap on the toner. As the toner rotates, the toner tumbles downward into the supply unit into the developer unit.
Two things might appear here. First off, the toner supply unit can sometimes fail to position the lid back in the toner cartridge. This can lead to a mess in the event you get rid of old toner. Consequently, in the event you put the fresh toner in, the last lid remains and will not take out the cap from the new toner. The second situation is when the clamp, (F) in the picture, won’t open completely around the pull off tab in the middle of the toner cover. Therefore, you’re thinking that the toner is locked in and also the lid is off except the cover always remains on.

To troubleshoot you’ll want to take out the toner supply unit and the cover within the toner. This could be dirty therefore it is preferable to have an area capable to lay everything out and consequently can be easily cleaned. Obviously, the first thing to do is glance inside the front of the toner supply unit. Confirm that the cap still isn’t located in it. The next step is to take off the cap on the toner. Next, see if the clamp will grab the cover and take it into position. If it won’t, sometimes you can press in a little on the lock lever and it will extend the clamp enough to slip over the cover. In the event that may happen, then you can take it all apart and clean everything out to see if will begin opening completely or you can easily, just replace the supply unit.
