    I did a halfway test, and the image on the drum is also lighter on one side. And printing an internal report also came out light on one side.

pull the toner cartridge out leave the bottom front cover open and bring down the top cover. with a flashlight check to make sure the charge roller is comming down straight if it comes down even. check to make sure the transfer roller has spring tension on the left side if the pring tension is present you will need to clean the flat leading edges of the mirror motor drive inside of the scanner located under the top cover.

Could be one of a few things:

Most likely is the transfer roller. If it's dirty or old and not applying enough charge, it may not be pulling all the toner away from the drum. Replacing the transfer roller is easy if you can get a new one.

Are you sure you have the correct toner? The wrong toner can definitely cause copy quality problems.

If the springs that hold the press roller against the hot roller are not properly in place (or if they have started to lose tension) the toner won't be fully fused onto the paper.

I'd start with the transfer roller (black roller that sits opposite the drum on the right side door) first -- it's the most likely culprit.

Ricoh aficio 2022 replace photoconductor unit


Photo conductor unit is the drum unit inside the copier . It contains developer and toner which are the ink as some people refer to it. It is a consumable part and needs to be replaced every 60k copies but can and dies last longer. You can ignore it and once copy quality is ok I wouldnt bother changing it but you will eventually need to replace it.

2. push the 3 numeric buttoms, in following order: 1,0, 7 .
3. push the big red "C" buttom, don't release for 5 minutes until you saw a copy windows popup on the screen.
choose the "copy sp", then trun off the power, and turn it on again.
now done, you have reseted the factory settings for the Ricoh Aficio munti-functional copier;printer.

If you really need the actual "Chip" then you will have to get a Service manual, inside there are circuit diagrams and circuit details.

How to replace image unit ricoh aficio 220


Do you mean the photoconductor unit? To replace the photoconductor (PCU), open the front cover and the right side covers (the duplex door and the main side door). The PCU sits to the right of the toner bottle -- it is a black unit that has the blue cylindrical drum facing the right side of the copier.

On the upper left side of this unit is a ridged tab. Push this tab in and slide the PCU all the way out of the machine. Open the box with the new PCU and remove all of the tape and paper, then slide the new PCU in where the old one came out of. When you shut all of the covers, the copier will recognize the new PCU.

Copies are half printed and half almost not printed (very lite)


If the copy count is around 150,000 or higher and you haven't replaced the developer as well, it should be replaced. That symptom can cause light copies if it hasn't been replaced every 150,000 cycles.

RICOH PHOTOCONDUCTOR UNIT CLEAR CODE????


Actually, there isn't one! But, you can get rid of the message. Press clear modes, 1,0,7, and then press and hold clear stop. Choose copy sp. Scroll to 5, (mode) then scroll to PCU alarm setting. There are 2 options. Display will shut the message off. If it is a 1, make it 0, or vice versa. Interval, will set the count. You can make it an 80, and that will give you 20000 more prints. Personally, I would change the PCU really soon, other wise you will pay for it in toner.
