SOURCE: Smearned Printing on Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer

Hi there the smudges are most likely down to the black PCU (Drum Unit) and following are the reasons for the two fault caode you have given me.

After the laser beam pitch was
changed, it takes more than
five seconds for the HP sensor
to switch off.
• Defective motor
• Defective sensor
• Mechanical problem
when switching the
actuator
• Brown fuse (FU81) on
the Power supply unit
1. Turn the main switch off and on.
2. Check the sensor actuator position of
the LD positioning motor.
3. Replace the LD positioning motor.
4. Replace the LD home position
sensor.
5. Check and/or replace the PSU.

SC 380 Black
development
motor error
SC 381 Color
development
motor error
When the motor speed is
within the target level, the
motor sends a lock signal
(High to Low at CN214-5) to
the BCU.
SC380 is detected under the
following conditions:
• The Lock signal stays High
2 seconds after the motor
turns on.
• The Lock signal stays Low 2
seconds after the motor
turns off.
• The Lock signal stays High
for more than 2 seconds
while the motor is on.

SOURCE: Add Black Toner Msg.

Thanks Ricohman for the suggestion. Toner was original Ricoh cartridge and reinstalling it didn't help. I decided to tear the machine apart and discovered the auger for the black toner was stuck. I removed the auger, cleaned everything up and put the machine back together. Works great now.

You may have to replace the transfer belt or the drum. I would start with the drum first

Ricoh aficio c420dn wont print black


Hi, my experience with this machine is that the gear that drives the black pcu breaks or cracks. Usually caused by the pcu being too hard to turn. I always turn the developer gear in the pcu before installing it just to loosen the toner.

We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N and are getting an error stating: "Used toner is almost full." No manual to refer to. Thank you!!


Hi there, You can just empty the waste toner bottle. here is what you need to do. Here is also a manual for your machine http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/html/oi/re/model/cl3500/cl3500en.htm Detailed instructions on cleaning the Waste toner bottle on Page 32 of the Maintenance Guide. Instead of replacing just empty it. Just be careful as the toner is toxic so you can also vacuum the toner out of the Waste Toner Bottle.
Regards,

Ricoh CL4000DN. I recharged the magenta toner using the OEM cartridge. I replaced the chip as instructed and all elements snapped together without difficulty. However, now there is a "check toner...


Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.

Thought I would ask you, since u have answered Ricoh CL3500N


According to the maintenance manual, broken lines are caused by the "dithering" setting. Also there is an in depth color calibration process you can execute. Have you checked the PCU unit?

Here is the maintenance manual:

Check the transfer roller. Its a black spongy roller in from of the drum. Make sure it is getting good contact. Did you shake the toner cartridge before you installed it?

Ricoh Aficio Color Registration Error


One of our Ricoh CL3500N printers- less than a year old- gave us a "color regist error" after changing the transfer belt.

Ran the "adjust color regist" without results. It would just finish and pop back up with the same error.

Color test page printed no color, just BW

I reseated everything, and even replaced the PCU without positive results.

A couple hours later I went back, took everything out (be sure to keep the pcus out of the light!), and vaccuumed the heck outta that printer.

For whatever reason- maybe there was a chunk of toner hanging out, maybe I knocked something loose or back in place, whatever- but when I put all the parts in and turned it on, the error was gone and color printed great!
