Question about Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer

1 Answer

Aficio SP4100N I have noticed recently that I am getting some black marks on the left side of my pages when printing. Ir repeats at the same distance from each mark. I have tried cleaning inside he printer but still the marks appear. I also dusted the toner cartridge/drum in hopes something would dislodge and be cleared out. Nothing. Marks still there. Is there anything I should be looking for or something that needs to be cleaned that I am missing? Is more info needed??

Check the brown conveyor-belt inside the fusing unit. Maybe it has holes inside.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N When I print a vertical page there are thin black lines going down the left side of the page. What causes it?? And what can I do??


Hi, thin black lines are most likely (but not definitely) caused by something in the black PCU (photoconductor unit), either the drum or the charger. Replacing the black PCU will likely get rid of your lines. The Ricoh code for a black PCU if you don't already have one is 402448.

Smeared print on paper


I was getting a similar blur/blob down one side of the paper (with no discernable print anywhere,) but after removing and emptying the toner collection bottle my printing returned to normal. I am still working on the size mismatch issue, which seems to be prevalent in the 2300DL population.

If the marks are along the same line and look like dots the black photoconductor needs to be repalced.

Sounds like the Dev unit is about worn out. May also be a transfer issue.

If the colors are good and solid with no fades, only black streaks, then black is the culprit. I suggest replacing the black cartridge.
