Blue and red uniform streaks on each page-Ricoh Aficio CL4000DN

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??
Thanks.

SOURCE: Color Streaks down length of page

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.

SOURCE: My printer will only print from bypass tray. Why?

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.

I believe what you are referring to is the drum inside the toner cartridge. The drums are usually very strong colors, blue or green and if it is streaking then the drum cleaning blade has failed on the inside and you need to replace the cartridge.

Sounds like the cyan photoconductor unit needs to be replaced. Usually what ever the color dot is that photoconductor has a pinhole in it and the only to get rid of it is to replace it.

I just came across this post, you've likely solved it by now; However it is a "Toner density" error related to your cyan photoconductor. It is a defective connector. Replacing the cyan photoconductor should solve problem.

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

My rep advised that if this problem is occuring when using the feeder, the small glass strip to the left of the glass can have some sort of either high lighter or white out stuck to it. He suggests cleaning this with some alcohol.
