This can be one of two

Print cartridge (you can do it, replace toner cartridge)

or Fuser (needs to go to doctors)

stop a print half way threw to confirm that it is print cartridge, good chance it is.

Or OPC is damaged, or there's something on it. If you want to see yourself DO NOT TOUCH ROLLER. To move it, try to push the gear. You need some power to do that. Stains can be removed from OPC with paper towel and isopropanol.

Printing black


Hello,
is the copy/print full black or have streaks or have dots, or ...

First, remove the toner crg., and check the drum surface if it has toner leftovers or spots or streaks, or... if so replace the toner crg.

btw. It also can be the fixing unit, but if these is the problem then the toner will not be "baked" on paper and it can be wide solid black stripe on corner.


Hope that helps!

Most of the time when I find this happening on a printer, not just Ricoh's it turns out to be the PCU (photo conductor unit). The color PCU is one unit and the black is a seperate unit. Hope this helps.
