Question about Ricoh FT3713 Copier

1 Answer

Pages coming out shaded from left to right: gray, progressing to black...

Image copied is legible only partially at the right side of the page.I've done over a hundred copies expecting that the darkness will reduce over time.

The intensity of the toner on each page remains constant, varying from gray at the entire length of the left side of the page progressing to black over the entire right side of the page.

I vacuumed, wiped, took out the toner and wiped the cylinder, vacuumed the used toner overflow opening, etc.

No effect!

Please help me if you can.

Thank you.

Right side of document is black when scanning to print, umax 1220u


1. Fred's right about trying another computer, but you still may have wrong/ old driver- download demo version of Vuescan at www.hamrick.com and see if it's your software.
2. Partially blank pages can appear when you don't have sufficient memory for the scan, but that usuall loosees the lower half of the page.
3. The lamp is probably not the problem, because there is enough liht bouncing around in mostflatbead scanners that you would just see the image "fade"to black, not have a distinct line.
4. best bet is that something inside has come loose and is covering half the scanning sensor, or the mirrors that reflect the images to the sensor inside

Sent faxes have the right side cut off and black lines on side of paper, have cleaned white bar and glass cover....help


Sounds like the scanner section (the glass **** part in the original scan section). These are notorious for going out and sending partial black or all black pages. Try making a copy and see what it looks like, but if it's sharp lines on (across) sections of the copies, then that's what it is. It's about a $40 part and easy to change. Just lift the "tab" on the holders right side....slide the unit to the right...lift up the left section...pull it out and unplug it. Be carefull not to let the connector fall into the slot it came from or you'll have to disassemble it further or fish it out. Replace in opposite directions.

Hello mine is really an FT3713


This sounds very scary...
Your Machine is very old..
What did you do last to the Copier to get it in this condition?


All you should have done is empty the Waste Toner bottle, and do SP83.

Black Lines running down the right side outside of the print area


It may be the fuser. Take it out and inspect the roller on it:

  1. Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
  2. Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
  3. Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
  4. Pull the front cover down towards you.
  5. Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
  6. Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
  7. Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
  8. Check the roller for wear marks, If so replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Black image


I have an HP 5470c flatbed scanner. It started with partially black scans, and progressed finally to completely black pages. Tried here for answers. Found none. So I opened up my scanner, figured I had nothing to lose. Thought it might be the ribbon cable attached to the moveable tray. Was RIGHT!! Immediately saw a small frayed piece where it was rubbing against the tray. Used some Scotch Long Lasting Tape to re-connect. EUREKA. Problem fixed!!
