SOURCE: Faint red line across page when making color copies or printing in color from computer

Some possibilities are:

1) Dirt on the glass, dirt on the glass strip for the doc feeder, or dust on the mirrors. This would be the case if the line only showed when copying and not printing.

2) Toner dropped onto the charge sawtooth.
This may be possible if the line is intermittent and only showed up for 1 or 2 colors.
Open the front door and remove the waste toner box. To the left of each drum there is a green organ-stop type stem. Pull and reinsert each stem. You will hear a zipping noise. These are your charge scrubbers.
This may be not as likely if the line shows up in the same place on all 4 colors

3) Toner or dust on the lens
This may be possible if the line is intermittent and only showed up for 1 or 2 colors.
In the area where the waste toner box goes, look for a grey stick with a white cushion on the end. This is your lens scrubber. Look in the area under the charge scrubber on each drum cartridge for a gap. Insert the scrubber cushion side down into the gap and run it forward and back to clean the lens.
This may be not as likely if the line shows up in the same place on all 4 colors

4) Transfer belt blade not cleaning
This is best handled by a service tech since the mylar belt is very fragile. The squeegee blade that cleans the transfer belt between copies is missing a spot. The blade needs to be taken off the belt, cleaned and repowdered. Recently, Sharp made changes to the composition and thickness of the mylar in the transfer belts. Overpowdering the blade or belt when it was changed may cause improper cleaning of the belt creating lines across the copies. Often the condition clears up after a couple of days as the gap between the blade and belt is sealed.
This is most likely the cause as the line shows up in the same area for more than 1 color.

5) Transfer belt and/or blade is worn out
If the belt is worn the blade must be replaced but not vice versa.

6) Clogged waste augers in the drum cartridges.
Waste toner may cake up in the drum cartridge and knock loose on the drum.

It may be time for full maintenance on the machine.

SOURCE: My Ricoh Aficio MP 161 said to add toner but still won't copy

Check your old toner bottle and make sure the plastic "cap" is still in the bottle. These machines have an occaisional problem with the caps coming off (not the black screw off cap but the semi clear cap under the black screw off cap) and staying inside the black plastic "cup" that you insert the toner into. If the cap is missing it may be stuck inside this cup. If the cap is still in your old cartridge then try opening/closing the front door and letting the machine cycle to see if the toner light goes out. May have to do this several times. Had one customer just yesrday have to do this to clear the toner light after adding toner.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: How do I clean or replace the drum on a Ricoh

The drum unit on these models is a complete replacement unit. the drum can only be cleaned by removing the unit and then there are some screws to be taken out. two on the back plat and two on the front. if you take these cover plates of the unit will split and you can remove the drum(Blue roller) and under neath there is a charge roller as well that can be cleaned.. only use water on the black cahrge roller and gently rub with a cloth till clean. The drum with a very soft cloth and some liquid brasso may clean it up or get rid of the scratch lines but if they are too worn the drum needs replacing. you can clean the scanner glass and the mirrors underneath here as well.B0392201 is the part number for the Drum unit which comes as a complete unit. you may need to purchase the developer for the drum init as well B0399640 is the part number for this. hope this helps >>>A

SOURCE: add toner ricoh aficio 2045

Toner supply is controlled with readings from TD sensor on the developing unit and the I.D sensor above the drum by default.

These are low cost parts and easy to change.
(The TD sensor on this model have been known to fluctuate back and forth by a fair margin so is a good place to start).

You could also try stripping down and cleaning out the toner hopper.
Check the four mylars are present and the grabber is opening wide enough to grab the toner bottle nozzle successfully.

Check the toner hopper exit slider is opening fully when the PCU is inserted.

I had one of these 'add toner' faults today and it was the toner hopper all clogged up inside.
The side bit where the toner drops down had hardened clumps of toner stuck around the side entrance mylar and the exit hole.

Check also the toner motor. I have seen these fail. Run simulation output check for toner motor. I would remove the toner supply unit and hold the motor when you run this simulation. Sometimes the motor turns but does not have enough torgue to turn the toner supply unit.

I have a Ricoh Aficio 2045 and whenever i try to copy double sided the paper jams in the copier but is fine when copying single sided. It always Jams at Point C in the photocopier?? Can anyone help me??


This jam problems are always very difficult to solve without seeing the machine!
Because i need to see the jam location or take a report to see where the paper jams.
you say that it is on the Point C, but that just helps a little.
I can tell you that you have a problem in the duplex door (but you already know that). It could be several things like; transport rollers, gates, solenoids... well, the best help i can give you is to advise you to call your technical support.
See you!

My copies comes out faintly. pls wat is/ are the cause(s) ?


Hi,
the light copies on these machine can be result of dirty optics. On digital machine when the optics are dirty the copy is light.
You should remove copy glass and clean the lenses and mirrors and glass with glass cleaner and polish it verry well.
Also the problem can be dirty laser unit.Worn developer, worn drum, charge roller,...

Hope that helps!

Background on copies, possible dirty charge roller , I cleaned all optics is there an adjustment to perform to help eliviate this background


Hi,
yes it could be chatge rollers fault, but how many copies does developer have? I would clean the charge roller with water, dry it, and change the developer. On these digital machine, when you have backround wich is dark, these means that developer is worn out and you need to change it and clean developer cylindar. When the optics is dirty the image will be light, not dark!!!!! Only on analog copiers when optics is dirty the copy is dark, and when the developer is worned out the copy is light!!!!

My copier is Aficio MP4500 with background after replacing drum and developer.jj


swan this model doesnt have a transfer roller its a transfer belt and even if the trasfer belt is damage the problem it would cause is that the back of the paper would be dirty.
