Question about Ricoh CL3000E Laser Printer
I have noticed vertical lines across my printed photos. I did check the Photo Conductor Units Type 125 and found concentric circles along two of the color drums. Can this be corrected and how or is it time to replace the Color Photo Conductor. Also, what causes these rings on the drum? The printer isn?t that old. I am still on my first replacement of toner. Hope you can help. Thanks
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.
