Question about Ricoh Aficio CL3500N Laser Printer
I work for a school district that has several Ricoh Aficio CL3500N printers. The printers do good when they work, but they go through PCU's like no other printer I have ever seen. I have talked to Ricoh Tech Support and had help on a couple of different issues, but no help as to why these machines keep going through PCU's... Black and Color PCU's having to be replaced or start showing lines within a month or two of being changed. I have looked around for a reason why these printers just don't hold up. I have cleaned and worked on them repeatedly, but the only thing that seems to work is replacing the PCU. I am looking for any suggestions or help for the Ricoh Aficio CL3500N besides chunking them all out the door.
These machines were actually made by Panasonic and they eat PCU's there is no rhyme or reason, they just do. I would replace all of them as soon as possible. These printers were pretty much interim technology for Ricoh until they developed thier own engine. I highly recommend the new 400 color series, low cost per page, vg color and consumables last a long time!
