We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N. We are getting a strange smudge on the left side of the printed page. I have cleaned the spongey roller that the paper passes through just before exiting the printer. However, the smudge keeps coming back. I can see that the discolored end of the roller is causing the smear/smudge, but it keeps coming back after I clean it. I have replaced the yellow toner since their was an alert on the panel to replace it. Any ideas?

Never clean or touch the Transfer Roller (spongey rooler) unless your using a dry cloth or vaccum as last measure.

Usually the transfer roller sits on a drum/pcu specific to that color. If you can tell which color is sitting on to of the roller replace that drum/pcu.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N When I print a vertical page there are thin black lines going down the left side of the page. What causes it?? And what can I do??


Hi, thin black lines are most likely (but not definitely) caused by something in the black PCU (photoconductor unit), either the drum or the charger. Replacing the black PCU will likely get rid of your lines. The Ricoh code for a black PCU if you don't already have one is 402448.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N I get gear marks printing on the left edge of every sheet with a 1/4 in. half circle after 33 marks, like below.... could this be toner leaking? Is there a way to clean it? \ \ \ ...


Either the drum unit is marred or some toner has migrated to where it shouldn't be, possibly onto the fuser roller. A thorough cleaning might be in order.

My Ricoh Aficio SP C811DN-DL Printer smudges bottom of the page each time I print. It's a 3cm wide stripe of colourful smudges running across the bottom of page.


Transfer belt cleaning unit. The transfer unit is above the drums and the cleaner is on the left side. Remove it and I would bet you see a similar band as what your seeing on your prints. You can try wiping of the cleaning blade in the unit or you may have to replace it.

Error code: color registration error and ultra-light, smudged printing on right side of paper


have you replaced all of the consumables?
drums X2 black and color
developer units X4 CMYK
transfer imaging belt X1
Fuser unit X1
if the unit has over 60k prints it will need to have these items replaced and once that is done the color registration will come back inline.

Smudge on left side of paper


It seems like your PCU's are dirty and are picking up extra toner. Take them out and look at the green rollers, any extra finger prints or dirt on them? Clean them with a clean paper towel.

Also, check your transfer unit below the PCU's, that may need cleaning or replacing. You can pull that out after removing both PCUs, turn the little screww and look at it. That can also be cleaned with a cleaning wipe or a damp paper towel. There's a little tab that you can turn to free the rollers (they'll still be a little tight) bu then you can turn the rollers to expose more surface area.

Good luck. Be sure to rate the post if it works for you.

Stops Printing Entire Page After Around 50 sheets


First, check the text in your records for odd characters. It is sometimes possible in data entry to hit a ctrl-"letter" combination that embeds printer codes in your text and these are invisible in many cases to the application. The easiest way is to break up your print job to sections of records and see if a particular record consistently causes an error.

If your sure however that the printer is the problem...

Then I would check the RAM. The printer has 128MB upgradable to 512MB. Normally you can pull the ram and run jobs on the internal memory, but in this case you would need to swap it out.
