Problems with Printing

Greetings: I have developed a problem with the way this printer prints. What happens is this ... When I print a document from in my computer (such as a WORD document) -- I get the top two inches of the page printing correctly, and then, the rest of the page (all the way to the bottom) is in the BOLD AND HEAVY PRINTING that is so overprinted it can barely be read. I am ready to throw this thing through the window! P.S. When I make a photocopy, this does not happen. Also, there is no BOLD settings selected in my WORD program. So, it is nothing I am doing. I tried to fix this by unplugging the printer, and by changing the cartridge -- nothing helped. HELP! Any suggestions? Kentroversy Buffalo, NY USA

Faint grey printing

According to the service manual for problems with light print image, the cause can be the Developers or High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS). Other possible causes are given as: Developer roller is stained when the toner or developer cartridge is almost consumed. Ambient temperature is below 10 degrees Centigrade. Bad contacts with the HVPS or abnormal output from the HVPS. To replace the Developers you would need to purchase a replacement Imaging Kit CLP-R300A. Any problems in the HVPS would require a factory repair.

Ricoh mp5500 printing light copie

Is it only in copies? If so you need to clean the all scanner (glasses ans mirrors)
If that happens also when you print it could be one of this problems;
-The laser (durt)
-The Magnetic Roller (in the development unit)
-Or the Developer.

The question is: When was the last time that you did a service maintenence??? Maybe you need to do that.

See you!

Pages come out pink only when printing in colore

The magenta developer is bad.

The developer drive on this printer rotates in both a clockwise and a counter clockwise direction to turn the developers.

When printing black, ( i cant remember which direction it turns, ) only the black developer turns.

When printing color, the developer drive turns the opposite direction, engaging ALL 4 developers.

( the developers are the multi colored bars you see when you remove the image drum unit.)

This is why you do not get the pink output when printing only black.

your choices are to set the printer to only print black and white. ( you can do this in the printer properties for your print driver). or you will need to replace the magenta developer.

Xerox phaser 7700 having problems printing transparencies and accumulator belt problems

Hi xander4265:
Streaks in direction of paper travel
There are dark lines running along
the page in the direction of paper
travel from the leading edge to the
trailing edge (B-size print shown).
The printer displays no error code.
Note A-size prints are processed
through the printer with the short
edge of the print parallel to the
direction of the paper path --
making horizontal print artifacts
parallel to the shot edge of the
B-size prints are processed
through the printer with the long
edge of the print parallel to the
paper path -- making horizontal
artifacts parallel to the long axis
of the print.
1. Check the end of life for each of
the consumables by printing the
supplies usage page. From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu, select
Print Supplies Page.
2. Run the solid fill test pages; From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu,
select Service Pages, then select Print Solid Fill Pages. If the missing bands
only occur in a single primary color, replace the print cartridge of the affected
3. Swap print cartridges and run another test print.
Note Under some circumstances, streaking may occur in the margin of
SRA3-size paper. This is due to the edges of the paper extending
beyond the end of the imaging components. print-quality in the
margins of SRA3 paper is not guaranteed.
4. Inspect the Accumulator Belt cleaner; replace the cleaner, if necessary.
5. Run the Remove Print Smears routine. From the front panel’s Support Menu,
select Improve Print-Quality?, then select Remove Print Smears.
6. Replace the Developer Housing Assembly (RRP 27, on page 7-171).
7. Remove the print cartridge and (with a flashlight) check for debris along the
edge of the developer housing.

hope that this will help you.

Diagonal shading problem on monochrome print

I would try cleaning the lasers with the brush inside the door. If that fails, you might try looking at the developers.

Printing greetings cards and envelopes

At the moment it is printing both sides of Greetings cards, but this printer appears to be very sensitive with regards to placng card in the exact position in the paper tray.

Why it will not print envelopes without smudging I still don't know, so I shall just have to write address by hand after I place graphic on the envelope

This 5300 was a Christmas gift from my wife and if I could afford to change it I would. The performance is very dissapointing

Kindest Regards
