This article explains how to check and adjust a part of the photoconductor unit called the retract lever. A stuck or misaligned retract lever can cause specific print quality issues, but you can usually resolve the problem yourself with a simple adjustment.
Please observe the following handling precautions:
The photoconductor unit (PCU) weighs 2.8kg (6.16 lb). Hold it firmly by the handle when carrying it.
The PCU is light-sensitive. Avoid exposing it to light any longer than necessary.
Be careful not to scratch the surface of the drum and transfer belt. Also, avoid touching the drum, since oil from your skin may permanently damage its surface and affect print quality.
Avoid tilting the PCU.
For more information see your reference guide, available from the Epson website.
