Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier

1 Answer

Copies have black streaks now

I have a Ricoh Aficio 1013 copier.
It has always worked perfectly, until we moved 35 miles.
Now, the copies have black streaks the length of the copies.
Where and what to clean?
The toner is nearly out, could this be an issue?
Like I said, it worked fine until the move.

    Sounds like toner spilled on the target glass or up in the machine. One thing to clean on this model is the glass and make sure you clean the small what is called **** glass length of machine about 1 inch wide. Do the lines appear with the documet feed and the on the glass. If only with document feeder this small **** glass is dirty.

Dirt on the narrow glass will cause streaks through the Auto feeder, but copies should be clean if using the main contact glass if that's the case. Dirt/toner anywhere else (ie:laser optics) would cause light areas on the copies- not dark. Did this happen the very first time you used it, or shortly after? In other words, could it be coincidental? It sounds more to me, like the PCU (photoconductor/drum unit) needs replacement, or a fuser roller.
If cleaning the glass doesn't help, then one of these 2 things is causing your problem.

Ricoh 1224c prints on left side only - Blank on right side


well if its just on the black then it might be the black drum see if it does the same on the color from copying and printing. If it does the same in color then its not the drums it may be the developers, but you wont know untill you test the color if it only happens in black and white its definitely a problem with the drum.

Ok, its a firmware bug, but you should be able to reset it. Press clear modes, 1, 0, 7, and press and hold clear/stop. Press 1 for copy sp. Scroll down to 7, (data log) press 7. scroll to 7807, and reset it. exit all the way out, and recycle the power.
