Question about Printers & Copiers
The streaks are mostly on each side--not in the very middle. I replaced the cyan color toner--didn't affect it.
It gives me no message as it should if it is the photoconductor--but do you think that is what it is??
If so, where do I get the best price??
This is a laser printer, neither a copier nor a multifunction unit, therefore it has no glass. At least, I cannot find any glass in it.
I finally had an authorized Ricoh repair center examine it and found streaks on the black unit that pulls out of the right side (I forget the part's name, <$90). We replaced it and things are better but streaks of color remain. They suggested replacing the color one (about $400) but the cost is prohibitive right now, so I'll live with those streaks.
On a related note, I remain unimpressed with this printer's quality and inconsistency. For example, greys often print in pink; nothing has ever resolved this. I refuse to put any more money into it. When I can afford to do so, it will be replaced, probably by a Xerox Phaser.

It may be something to do with the paper size settings on printer driver, document print settings or page setup. If for example the computer thinks the paper size is Letter, and the paper in Tray 1/2/3 is A4, it won't print.
