Question about Ricoh Aficio 1013F Copier

1 Answer

Text "ghosts" or shadows

Hi there.

When we print ... a very faint copy of the printed dark text is printed about 1/2 way down the page.

Anyone know what's causing this?  We've lightened the density already.. the problem still occurs.

Thanks

Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

Printing from online comes out very light


Typically, the quality of images and text on websites is very low resolution to keep the file size down in order for them to load more quickly on your screen. Just because it looks good on your screen doesn't mean it will print the same. There are just fewer dots per inch in the text and images and they can appear faint and low quality when printed. Look for a print icon on some web pages as it will be at least formatted properly to fit the page and some are of better quality than printing what is on the screen.

When it comes to emails, if the text is in a color, especially blue, they will tend to print light. Change your printer settings to print grayscale and that should help sharpen things up about as much as is possible.

Poor print quality


the shadow-like copy of text is definitely coming from a faulty tone cartridge, replace it and you will have your solution,

the verical lines are caused by a dirty optical lens which is located under the keypad, just lift that up and you will see a glass bar that is likely dirty, clean it well and this should solve this problem as well

Re-copies further down page


the problem can be caused by drrum unit, transfer belt unit and maybe something else also.
Try print something and when printer starts to take up paper open front cover and see if the text/picture is replicated on pc drum or transfer belt. it is bossible that it may be caused from pc drum. so try changing it.
