Question about Ricoh Aficio 1013F Copier

1 Answer

Print quality I replaced the toner cartridge about 2000 copies ago. In the last 500 copies, I am getting seriously awful ghosting. The machine has done around 32000 copies and I was told the drum would last around 90000 copies. Any suggestions? Do I need a service call as I dont have a service agreement anymore.

Ghosting can :
1-prints on the fuser roller, check if yes try cleaning it off, wait until it cools off

2-blanking lamps dirty or not working,(deletes image off the drum, before it gets ready to accept a new one)

BL mirror-(new image)
\ /
()
drum

3-Bad drum (although I doubt it this far in the process.)

Why is my HP laser jet smugging the paper?


You may have a couple of bad cartridges, you may have a bad fuser unit. Were these oem or refurbished parts? Quality of refurbs can vary wildly. The heating elements on the 42xx series printers typically don't provide great performance when rebuilt.

Drum Life Ends soon - Brother


The problem with this is the design. Each toner cartridge has a microchip on it, that counts the pages you print. The company has determined that you get x amounts of prints. Then you have to replace it, empty or not. This printers do not work the same way as an expensive professional business copier. In an pro style there is a spent toner cartridge that collects all of the wasted toner that is on the drum. On a small business/home style this spent toner goes back into the cartridge. There is no level indicator, even on the inkjet printer. They too, have a chip that says you have x amount of prints/cleaning cycles they can go through. Look up inkjet refill kits or inkjet cartridge programmer.

BROTHER DCP7055 PRINTER SHOWS REPLACE TONER EROR


When replacing the toner cartridge, you MUST install a brand new, unused genuine Brother toner cartridge in order to reset the toner status. Swapping toner cartridges from one machine to another or installing a partially used toner cartridge may cause this problem. Brother machines control their image quality for the most suitable print quality by monitoring toner consumption. If you install a partially used toner cartridge, your Brother machine is unable to recognize toner consumption correctly which will cause this problem. Therefore, when you replace the toner cartridge, please use a brand new toner cartridge, not a partially used toner cartridge from another machine.

I am getting ghost images when printing. I just replaced the toner cartridge.


Image ghosting is caused in most cases by one of two problems:

1. the toner cartridge is bad.
2. The fuser is bad.

If you just replaced the cartridge and it was printing fine before you did that then the easiest troubleshooting is to put another cartridge in the printer. Is this an HP 3300 series all in one or an HP 1200 by any chance? Are you using refilled or reman cartridges? If yes, then the answer is that a lot of the 3rd party cartridges we come across cause this problem and it comes down to the quality of the toner. For some of our clients we have had to move them to OEM cartridges in order to maintain print quality they expect.

When your drum was replaced did they put in a new drum assy or just replace the drum cylinder? I would purchase a new drum because these are one of the chepest to buy, around $ 80.00. They have a 6 month warranty and around 20,000 copies. I would replace the drum to see if that solves the problem. Before doing that, pull off the left side bypass assy. It is easily removed without tools. You should be able to see the drum and see if the drum is clean. If not, then replace the drum unit assy. Are you using only Canon toner, no other kind of brand will work. Generics should work but they are usually not as good a quality. The volume is very low and that should not be an issue. I believe its suppossed to handle 10,000 copies per month. Cleaning the glass top and below may help. The mirrors should also be cleaned as well. Good luck.

Bad photo quality after changing drum


your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5)print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,

Poor quality since changing ink.


If you didn't have this problem with the last toner than more then likely the new one is deffective. It seems to be having a ghosting issues which happens when the dr blade inside the toner does not clean properly. You need to try another toner cartridge.

Poor print quality


the shadow-like copy of text is definitely coming from a faulty tone cartridge, replace it and you will have your solution,

the verical lines are caused by a dirty optical lens which is located under the keypad, just lift that up and you will see a glass bar that is likely dirty, clean it well and this should solve this problem as well
