Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Ricoh Aficio 1013 copier that has started to have an area of "ghost" printing in a narrow strip about 2" wide and 4" long on the lower left side of the copies that are being made. It appears to be the same printed characters on each page and is of varing contrast. The characters appear to be a portion of the text from approximately 2-inches above the shadowed characters.

Open the right door is there an image on the drum? (if not) It sounds though that your fuser has toner build up on it and is at end of life. These fusers are harder than most to rebuild so maybe a service call? -Carl

Ricoh Aficio 1013f is duplicating print under each line. Happens on copying, printing and faxing. Have changed process drum unit twice in the last year, fuser unit and had unit cleaned. Was better for...


What type of environment is this copier in? Standard office, warehouse, etc. If the temperature in the area fluctuates a lot, that could have something to do with your problem. Usually ghosting problems like that originate in the fuser. Try increasing or decreasing the fuser temperature to see if that fixes the issue.

Even though my RICOH Aficio 1013 appears to be an ALL-IN-ONE, the ONLY function it now porforms that of a copier. What components do I need to add or install to get to function as a printer, scanner, &...


It would be cheaper to find a 1013spf meaning scan,print,fax. Finding all of the boards, wiring harness, ROM chips and control panel buttons needed to convert your machine would be pricy. Then you would need a service tech to install everything as well. You can find the "spf" versions used for less than $1,000 and you could get around $500 for yours.

Copies have black streaks now


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.
