Open the right cover where you normally remove the paper jams,then open front cover/door where you put toner,lift the green handle up,push green lock towards the right side while pulling the hopper out,then theres a connector beneath the PCU,pull it then pull out the PCU,use the same same procedure to put it in,start with the PCU,return the connector and put in the hopper,then close all doors/covers

SOURCE: Color Photo Conductor Unit

the vertical line that you saw is an indication of either it is normally worn out, or something has caused the scratched, by any material ( PC drum is very sensitive to any material and can easily damaged or scratched any solid and unwanted dirt inside) see you actual meter reading. if it falls on the first thousand copies or print then it might have caused by a scratched, if it falls beyond the PM parts repalcement then there is nothing you can do but to replace this.

sometimes you can swap the colors, by the affected color use the yellow drum unit to the affected drum, the vertical would not that be obvious.

How to clean Ricoh Aficio MP 2000


sounds like either drum blade has fail or drum is bad. try printing the counter report and see if it is doing this. Then photo conductor unit needs to be rebuilt or replace. open right side door and look at drum make sure you don't touch it and see if toner is on it. If so drum blade has fail. call a tech or buy new photo conductor unit. this are good for approx 60,000 copies but sometimes will go longer age also play with drum blade life. were you might have 20,000 copies but unit is 5 years old
