You say you have checked the toner and there is "enough inside", I don't know how you can check this and the error suggests that the cartridge needs replacing. Have you tried a new cartridge ? This is the first step.
Is the cartridge you get the error with a Ricoh cartridge or a compatible. If compatible this could be the cause of your error.

Fax machine print light

When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

A white streak appears on the right hand side of the print out

If faded prints happen even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer.

I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Printer with same issue.
Actually, faded prints are due the the dust/ toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. Hence the image is not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer.
Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer serviced by any printer repair/ service professional. (Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors).

Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know
Good Luck!

Bit of print at top then dirty streaks and no printing on rest of sheet

I know this is a silly question, but is toner cartridge full? Is the toner cartridge remanufactured? this sounds like a toner application problem. More info about the toner cartridge would help.

Keep it simple, but it could be a charge corona problem and it's arcing. If the inside of the machine is dirty with toner, get some canned air and blow out the interior of the machine. BE SURE THAT THE EQUIPMENT IS UNPLUGGED, and do the cleaning where it won't blow toner on your good clothes. doit outside or in the garage.

1. make sure cartridge has toner. If remanufactured, be suspicious. Especially, if toner is inside the machine. This indicates wrong/bad toner.
2. If tonered inside, carefully air blow the toner out. get another toner cartridge to try.
3. If problem persists, then a professional needs to do more cleaning and check voltages and clean electrical contacts.

Laser head and paper rolers need cleaning geting speckles. Have drum out but how do i get it them and what is best to clean them with

Spots on the laser glass would show up as white vertical stripes in your print.

The drum unit has a soft plastic blade inside it to constantly clean the drum as it turns. Sometimes a clump of toner gets caught under the blade, but that usually shows up as a narrow band of spotty or gray stuff down the page. The clump may carve a groove in the drum, too. The cure is to replace the drum unit, unless it's new, in which case the cure is to make the store replace the drum unit.

In the back of the printer is the fuser, which runs the paper between hot rollers to bake the powder into the paper. The rollers are coated with Teflon or similar stuff, to prevent picking up toner and laying it back down further down the page. With age & use, the coating fails, and spots appear. Look for a pattern that repeats every 3 inches or so as the roller comes around.

Brothers are also prone to spot due to a bad toner cartridge. Take the toner cartridge out of the drum cartridge, hold it over a sheet of paper or two, and try to shake toner out of it. A little toner spill is normal, but if you get a pile under one end, a seal has gone bad in the cartridge. You need a new toner ctg.

Every manufacturer wants you to spend your money on their own supplies, of course, but in the case of Brother laser printers & faxes, refilled toner cartridges can sometimes break your machine. At the end of the cartridge is a wheel that stirs the toner inside; it's engaged by a thing in the machine that comes out as you close the toner door. Brother uses toner with smooth, round particles in their cartridges. Some refillers use toner that's just as fine, but ground to rough shapes. It resists stirring enough to sometimes break the gear inside the machine, making for an expensive repair. That's not your problem here, but you should consider that if you're headed to the store for new toner.

Add toner ricoh aficio 2045

Toner supply is controlled with readings from TD sensor on the developing unit and the I.D sensor above the drum by default.

These are low cost parts and easy to change.
(The TD sensor on this model have been known to fluctuate back and forth by a fair margin so is a good place to start).

You could also try stripping down and cleaning out the toner hopper.
Check the four mylars are present and the grabber is opening wide enough to grab the toner bottle nozzle successfully.

Check the toner hopper exit slider is opening fully when the PCU is inserted.

I had one of these 'add toner' faults today and it was the toner hopper all clogged up inside.
The side bit where the toner drops down had hardened clumps of toner stuck around the side entrance mylar and the exit hole.

Check also the toner motor. I have seen these fail. Run simulation output check for toner motor. I would remove the toner supply unit and hold the motor when you run this simulation. Sometimes the motor turns but does not have enough torgue to turn the toner supply unit.

I have toner sensor error , the screen reads check toner cartridge 541:MToner Sensor Error

In most cases you need to use a can of air and blow out all around your toner and drum area. Then used it inside the printer to clean out the toner inside of the machine. If this doesnt work take out all 4 anc clean everything very well.

You need to remove the cyan cartridge, and thoroughly clean the inside of the printer (please use proper printer cleaning kit, not a damp cloth!). The sensors can get crudded up with loose toner inside the machine.

Copier won't print after refilling toner cartridge

As far as I know, filling up with toner is not enough. There is an electronic chip that must also be replaced, so the toner cartridge tells the unit it is a new one. Check with your supplier for such chip.
