Could be a problem common with whatever your specific printer is. However, if it is a laser printer, it is a problem with the fuser not getting hot enough. Try having the thermostats attached to the fuser unit checked.

Why do I have a line down the middle of my scan using the feeder not when I scan on the glass?


Hi,

Check the feeder slot for any debris (paper, correction fluid etc.)
Also open the lid so check the platen glass. to the far left should be a narrow strip of glass seperate from the main plate. make sure there are no marks on this, usually correction fluid or ink from ballpens likes to get smeared on here when using the feeder causing a perma black object to be scanned for copying / scanning. hence the mark on the copy / scan.

Wipe carefully with a warm, damp cloth and some window cleaning detergent to remove any marks from there.

RICOH 1224C COPIES ARE SMEARED


Smeared output can also result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

If this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; if not, the thermostat is bad and you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

Check and make sure the paper setting is on what it thinks it is. In other words, make sure the the paper in the tray is letter and the display says letter, instead of letter-r (letter-r runs the long way from side to side in the tray, and letter runs the long way from front to back in the tray) or any other size. I am not familiar with the set up of the paper trays on that machine, but if you have to program the paper size yourself, make sure it is what it is.

Sometimes it's due to low fusing temperature. Certain papers need higher temps. Check the paper supplier or look in the printer setup menus and adjust the paper type to as close as possible to what you have.

you need check
1) you may make sure the smear occur after the photo drum unit or after fuser unit, you can stop printing when the paper goes around between the drum unit and fuser unit,
2) clean or change fuser leaner if the random smear occur after the fuser unit(not after the drum unit).
3) still check new drum unit there is a cleaner on it, it could be the smear occured if not enough cleaned drum surface
hope you fix it

My copier smears the middle portion of printed documents.


Cleaning the roller (drum) may have made things worse. You will need a new toner cartridge. However you should try and get a replacement from your supplier if the cartridge is not too old
