This is almost certainly the PCU. There are two. One for Black. One for Color. Print a B/W page and see if there are lines. Print a color test page and see if there are lines. This happens a lot to these printers.
To verify, carefully remove the suspect PCU and look at the bottom of it (the shiny roller) Be careful not to spill toner !! You will see the lines on the PCU itself. Replace the bad PCU. If it is the color one, and you are low on toner, you may be better off replacing the printer due to cost.

Like it was already mentioned... 1st if it's just one of the colors then it's probably the pcu for that color. If it's on all colors it's probably either the fuser or maybe some toner spilled on the laser unit. In either case you may have to have a regular tech look at it.

Printing B&W? Colour? or both?
Depending on your answer, replace the applicable Photoconductor.

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.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines


Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Three small white vertical lines in black printwhere the black does not print. Not present in other colors.


This is coming from the Black Drum Unit. You may be able to remove the unit and look into the slot on the top. You should see the drum which is green in color and may be able to see the lines. Not much you can do with these units so you may just have to replace it.

Ricoh CL2000N always have to press go for every print


You must have a "special paper" size set in the tray other than "plain", or perhaps the wrong size, so the printer needs you to override the setting. Check the settings. You can find out how on pages 24, 25 of the "operating guide". Go to the following web page to download it -just select your model from the drop down list:

if older printer or well used printer (All laser printers if they have print quality issues - it is mostly either the toner or the fuser). the only way to tell is get (borrow) a toner and see if problem is the same or remove the fuser (the hot thing in the printer) and see if the "ironing" unit or fuser rollers are dirty or worn out or scratched

If the colors are good and solid with no fades, only black streaks, then black is the culprit. I suggest replacing the black cartridge.

Running cardstock lightly misted with water or dilute cleaning solution through several times can help. Use either the feed button or print using a program that allows you to print blank pages.
