Your Drum Cylinder has a scratch or clot of toner stuck to it. Every time it rotates along the page (usually 4 rotations per A4) it leaves a copy of the defect on the page. If you take the toner cartidge out of the drum unit, you will be able to turn the drum cylinder until you find the fault. Either replace the drum unit or CAREFULLY clean it with alcohol on a cotton ball (meths or iso propoyl will do) in the case of a toner clot. If the fault recurs quickly after cleaning, then you have a damaged drum and it should be replaced.
Best of luck.
If you have BLACK Marks on the paper the YELLOW roller does not need to be cleaned usually.
To clean the yellow toner off the roller use a DRY lint free cloth. For this issue my suggestion for a resolution to the Yellow toner issue is replace the toner. They are not supposed to leak in the first place.
As for the BLACK tone on the left of the page you most likely have a Fuser issue causing that.
Toner powder is so fine that it hides under parts that you can't see. By all means, DO NOT blow it out with canned air! Get a vacuum with a fine filter that can hold toner and remove the toner cartridge. Then vacuum out the inside of the printer as thoroughly as possible. Especially clean out along the paper path and where the cartridge goes in. It may still print a few dirty pages, but after several pages, it should go away.
Yes, u can just clean the drums , I means the rolls inside the printer, just open the printer door , then remove the cartridge , then u can use tissues with a little of alcohol to clean the rubber rolls inside .
1) clean LED heads with Alcohol swab. 2) Check fuser rollers for dirt, smudges. Clean with swab. 3) Remove all toners/drums and check for spilled toner. Vacuum or wipe clean. 4) Check tansfer belt for marks, stray toner, creases. 4) Re-seat toner and drum cartridges.
Did you change the Toner cartridge? If that did not fix it :
Then the Fuser needs replacing. If you take the Fuser out from the rear, and rotate the drum in it, you will see the marks. You can try to clean it but experience shows that you will have to replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
repetitive defects are caused by either a ding on the drum in the toner, a scratch or dirty transfer roller, or scratched or dirty heat roller in the fuser, Last but not least is dirty exit roller. the first step to any print quality defect is to cahnge the toner cartridge. Good Luck!
on a ricoh - that would be the pcm - photoconductor module
on an ecosys the module should last 100,000 pages
nothing ever seems to last that long
