For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.

SOURCE: prints roller smear marks

Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.

Printing vinyl


Go to advanced settings on the printer control panel, and look for the type of paper. You may also need a special quick drying ink to print, otherwise, it will smear, and if it doesn't smear, it takes forever to dry!

RICOH 1224C COPIES ARE SMEARED


Smeared output can also result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

If this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; if not, the thermostat is bad and you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

The copies are coming out smeared and with lines. I wiped the (drum?) off?


What did you wipe the drum off with???? That is why you have this problem. You may want to try recleaning the opc with a dry soft rag, also you may want to clean the drum blade... If that dose not solve your problem, you may need to replace the opc & blade... Have you tried to stop the copy before it gets to the fuser unit.. If so, are the marks there???

Black ink smears everything.


you may have to clean the print head. since the jam cause the smear, and there still have some ink left on the print head.
you wouldn't get aclean copy till all of the ink trace are gone.

When printing the printer is leaving smears on the left side of the page and random letters. If I make 20 copies, the first 5 and the last few will have the marks. I already changed the drum and all...


you need check
1) you may make sure the smear occur after the photo drum unit or after fuser unit, you can stop printing when the paper goes around between the drum unit and fuser unit,
2) clean or change fuser leaner if the random smear occur after the fuser unit(not after the drum unit).
3) still check new drum unit there is a cleaner on it, it could be the smear occured if not enough cleaned drum surface
hope you fix it
