    I am pretty sure that you will have to replace the black photoconductor. Search for Ricoh type 165 photoconductor. They run about $130. What ever is electrical that is holding the toner in the center of the unit has failed. FWIIW, I have had to replace quite a few of these, some under warranty and some not on the six printers I support.

Start by cleaning the laser glass. This may well clear the issue. See if you can see toner spillage somewhere that could be preventing the laser drawing the image. Also check the fuser for a plough line .

Hi, I have DataMax ST3210, while printing it is instering a blank page randomly. Please advise


Check that your format is centered top and bottom on the stock, and that you have at least 1/8" quiet area top and bottom.
If you are printing on stock with an eye-mark, ensure that your print does not interfere with the area at the eye-mark. The printer will try to print the format, but if the eye-mark is in the way, even if the format is printed completely, will feed a blank label.
The also applys to standard die cut labels. with standard 1/8 die cut between labels

This is usually due to the imaging unit going out, but can also be a problem with the main board itself...unfortunately that means rma is really the only option...which is NOT going to be fun fyi as samsung has poor customer service.

"Skip Blank Page" Set to 0.1% Yet still skips pages with footers and headers


We have the same problem where I work. We use a black texta and draw a line down the middle of the page. This gives the scanner a point to pick up apart from the minimal text at the top. However, this will only work if you are happy to have a line on your scanned document!
