The photo conductor is the round drum unit that is light sensitive. The laser in the printer writes an image of what you want to print on the drum and then the toner is applied to the drum and transferred to the paper.

Everytime we print there are dots down the left hand side of the paper


You may have a build up of toner on your photo conductor unit. With a soft dry cloth carefully wipe the Green tub after which is located behind your toner cartridge it is the photo conductor unit.

Reset pcu correctly


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. It means that the photoconductor unit is not set correctly. You’ll need to reset the black or color PCU correctly. Match the green arrow at the tip of the photo conductor unit to the rail inside the printer. Make sure the green arrow fits securely on the rail before proceeding to the next step. If you do not attach the green arrow of the photo conductor unit securely to the rail, you may damage the photo conductor unit. Push the front of the photo conductor unit slowly, sliding the unit on the cover and into the machine until it stops.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
