Question about Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer
This is that the black drum unit cleaning blade failed or the charge roller has toner stuck on it. To remove the drum open the front cover and using the green tool right hand side of opened door undo the two screws turn the transfer lock into the unlock position and lift. Once you have done this then remove the black drum this is the one at the top by moving the little green tag to one side and pulling out (Be Careful as if you scratch the drum you will have other problems)
Once remove you will be able to see the drum and a black roller above it see if that has the black line on it. If it has then clean with some alcohol based cleaning fluid once this is done reinstall and then print. If there is no line on the black roller try above the likely thing is that the drum cleaning blade has worn and the unit will need replacing.
Glad to be of some help
