SOURCE: Black lines down page

It must be the black pcu , the cleaning blade picks up dirt and causes these lines , it can also be the black developer giving you trouble , if you want be very carefull aand strip the pcu open you will see the lines only on the inside and not from outside , then you will know if it is developer or the cleaning blade

SOURCE: Black Lines running down the right side outside of the print area

It may be the fuser. Take it out and inspect the roller on it:

  1. Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
  2. Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
  3. Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
  4. Pull the front cover down towards you.
  5. Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
  6. Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
  7. Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
  8. Check the roller for wear marks, If so replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Ricoh Aficio CL3500N PCU issues

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!

Ricoh aficio c420dn wont print black


Hi, my experience with this machine is that the gear that drives the black pcu breaks or cracks. Usually caused by the pcu being too hard to turn. I always turn the developer gear in the pcu before installing it just to loosen the toner.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N When I print a vertical page there are thin black lines going down the left side of the page. What causes it?? And what can I do??


Hi, thin black lines are most likely (but not definitely) caused by something in the black PCU (photoconductor unit), either the drum or the charger. Replacing the black PCU will likely get rid of your lines. The Ricoh code for a black PCU if you don't already have one is 402448.

Ricoh cl3500N printing with blank streaks in middle of page and faded quality black printing and black ink blotches on sides


The voids and blotches can be a bad black pcu, the voids san also be toner on the glass slat obove the pcu,s there are 4 slats one for each color, on the pcu itself on the upper side is a narrow long opening, the glass slat is above this opening when the pcu is in the printer. It will take a flashlight to see any toner on the glass.

It is working now, however I had to have Ricoh come out they cleared up the error code and told me I needed a new transfer unit and black PCU. I got both items from a 3rd party and installed them problem did not go away. I called Ricoh, they sent their guy back out at n/c and he got it going after taking much of the machine apart but he was not very clear on exactly what caused the problem.

Most of the time when I find this happening on a printer, not just Ricoh's it turns out to be the PCU (photo conductor unit). The color PCU is one unit and the black is a seperate unit. Hope this helps.
