Disassemble the cylinder of the image unit and review if the gears of the recycled of toner were not damaged, you accustom they are broken and they caused that the blade fails to be saturated of toner that section. If it is thus it also cleans with a vacuum cleaner the bushings of the spiral and the overturned trowel of until they are light.

Sir, I am getting black patch on right side of the paper when I take xerox. Please reply

is these black patch like the toner isnt baked and it peels of the paper?

If yes, you have problem in fixing section, probably fixing rollers bushing.

Also remove the drum unit and check drum for toner leftovers. If the drum is covered with toner after copieing replace drum unit.

Hope that helps!

After changing toner on my sharp, SF-2022 copy machine, the copies are coming out with black smudge marks across the paper? how/where should i clean?

This means the machine is over-toning ie using more toner than required caused by either improper toner or different brand of toner. The correct toner is sf 222T1. Replace developer and use the right toner and clean the drum and its blade. You may need to clean fuser rollers for cleaner copies.

When developer goes bad you use more toner for one thing, but the main sign is a gray background in your copy. The print should be black but appears to be gray. The ricoh 350/450 was always noted to leak toner and developer as it runs. Check your machine and see if you see any small piles of toner, which also has developer in it, in the machine. Ther are small seals made of felt that need to be replaced if you have this problem. These seals rub against the drum sides....Good luck.

Have you replaced the opc drum lately?? The toner density is looked at on the drum with the ATDC sensor. It seems like your tring to adjust the toner density. That is just a band-aid. try to replace the developer and if needed the opc and clean the drum unit and the ATDC sensor. You shouldn't have to readjust in the service mode.
