    The charge roll, drum blade, and drum are recomended to be replaced together charge p/n AD027018 was this replaced also? I assume internal prints are OK and lines go all the way to the edge of the paper.

Do the lines occur on copies made from the glass or the automatic document feeder or both.

From glass only:

Remove platen glass and clean optics (all the mirrors).

From ADF only:

Clean ADF glass. The thin glass on the left side of the larger platen glass.

From both ADF and glass.

Do a full PM kit including new drum and developer. Don't forget to initialize the developer.

Ricoh aficio 1800 .why copies are now black lines appear from top to bottom?

I guess you talk about Ricoh MP 1800.
The Black lines on the bottom appear because the copier has made more than 60,000 prints or more if new.
If it's bought used, than it has made 60,000 or more prints from the last change of the drum and the drum cleaning blade. For the print to be clean again, it will need to be changed the drum and drum cleaning blade. This copier as all other copiers have parts that have a yield.

Black line on copies

Check the drum history? If the yield is not yet reached, you should clean the charge roller, cleaning blade brush and cleaning blade. Remember to vacuum beneath the cleaning blade! See if that works, otherwise you should call a techie to replace the drum. If yield is not reached they will charge you for a new drum.

Ricoh Aficio 1018 printing lines, seems to be photoconductor

Cleaning the drum will not help. Depending on many factors including drum condition, number of pages printed etc, you will need at least to replace the drum cleaning blade. This is a common cause of black streaks. The drum should have been clean. The fact that it has toner on the surface is pretty good proof that the cleaning blade is bad. The part number for the blade is B0392289. I would do a search for this part and get one before you even think about trying to deal with the streaking problem. Once you get the blade, if you are mechanically inclined then replacing the blade is not difficult.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a problem with my Ricoh Aficio 2022sp. It leaves a black line when I copy or print anything.

Something around the drum need to be replaced. There are two ways to be done. Because Ricoh do not offer a replacement by parts around the drum unit for this machine by Ricoh you can only replace the hole drum unit. But as you say you have a problem with the drum cleaning blade, or in worse case the drum and the cleaning blade for the drum need to be replaced. So Katun offers a replacement by parts and by Katun is more cheap to be replaced. This is what is the problem, so on your hand is what are you gonna decide.

Vertical lines slanted on photocopier

Is it the same result when you place the original on the glass as when you use the Automatic feeder? If copy is straight when you use the glass, then the rollers on the feeder need cleaning (with a damp cloth) -Lift the cover where paper feeds and clean grey rollers,also, and more importantly, clean the darker roller which has a plastic white roller pressed to it with a heavy spring assembly.
If copies are slanted either way you make a copy, make sure to check the paper guides in the tray are snug
