Question about Ricoh FT3713 Copier

1 Answer

My Rocoh FT 4220 leaves a blank strip across every page that I try to copy. I have cleaned everything I could, but must have missed something. The blank strip is not always in the same location on the page.

WHO DO I CLEAN PRINT HEAD OKI MB451W


The MB451W uses electrostatic toner and does not have print heads. Follow the cleaning instructions beginning on page 172 of your User's Manual. If you don't have it handy, you can download it from the OKI website. (The link is for the English language manual.) http://my.okidata.com/mandown.nsf/196efed9e03ff0d1852576ee00476710/3854f93fb3d0181185257a7f004eddcb/$FILE/MB461_MB471_MB471w_MB491_ES4161%20MFP_ES4191%20MFP_MPS4200mb_Basic_UM_E.pdf.pdf

Note: on page 174, the manual recommends "soft tissue paper" for wiping off the LED array lens. Lens-cleaning paper or cloth for plastic lenses should work and is less likely to leave lint behind.

If you are getting random black blobs on the back of your printout after cleaning the printer as recommended, the fuser is dirty. If the fuser cleaning strip is accessible (a felt strip that wipes off the fuser roller during operation), gently scrape it clean with a knife blade held perpendicular to the strip, then clean the debris out of the printer. (CAUTION: the printer must be off long enough to be cold before working on the fuser!) If you can't get into the fuser, use the following procedure: Get matte-finish paper of the thickest stock your printer will handle. Put several sheets of this paper in the paper tray. At the computer, type a single space on a blank document, with no headers or footers, then print the blank page (trying to print with nothing at all usually doesn't work). This should pick up some of the trash. If you still have problems, open a graphics program and draw a solid black rectangle all the way across the page ("portrait mode") and about 4" high. Place a copy of this rectangle 2" below the first one. Insert a page break, and put a white object (anything white or transparent, with a white boundary) on the second page. Print double-sided. The black rectangles will pick up dirt from the fuser roller and the heat will make it stick to the paper toner. Repeat if necessary, then remove any unused cleaning paper from the tray.

Ricoh MP 2500 copied documents have a line across top of page when fed into document feeder when document is scanned the line appears on the scanned version as well. line does not appear on...


Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the thinner strip of glass that runs from front to back right next to the large glass. This glass is only used when scanning/copying using the document feeder. The line you are seeing is because something has become stuck to the glass so when the documents are fed over the strip of glass, the scanner reads the stationary spot of debris as a solid line. Clean the glass very well using a cloth and some glass cleaner. I have seen something get under the glass as well but this is very rare. Rest assured tho that the line is being caused by something on this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My HP Pro 7780 has recently started making copies (through the feeder) with 2 large blank streaks down the middle of the page (lengthwise). I am worried that this is also happening when I send a fax as...


Does this happen when you print, or only when you copy? If you print out a configuration or user settings page, or print a page from the computer, is it also missing two vertical lines of print or is it only when you are copying?

If it happens when you print, you may need a cleaning, or you may need to replace the toner or drum cartridge. If it's an inkjet machine, there's a possibility there is some ink or grease on the encoder strip (a small belt-like plastic strip that goes through the print-head carriage).

If it only happens when you copy, test both the flatbed and the document feeder. If it happens on both then you may have a bad scanner. If it only happens when using the document feeder, you likely have some whiteout (or something) on the glass. When you make a copy in the flatbed, the scanner moves across your document. When you make a copy using the document feeder, the document moves across the scanner. In this case, if there is anything on the scanner glass (like whiteout) your copies will be missing a vertical line of print data (it could be white if there is whiteout on the glass, or it could be dark if something dark is on the scanner glass).

Usually you can lift the flatbed cover and look at the glass to see if anything is on it (usually at the left side of the scanner). Clean the glass, first with alcohol to remove the obstruction, and then with a little windex to remove anything the alcohol may have left behind.

Copies leaves lines when put through the feeder,but not on the glass .......have cleaned and sprayed air can everywhere I can think of The Hp Printer is HP 3055 All in One printer


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Unwanted verticle line on fax copies


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Leaving a wide black line in right hand side of transaction


Pop open the fax document feeder, and look for a glass strip about 1cm wide, that runs from left to right across the machine.
You will probably see a few spots of dirt, or more commonly, a blob of white liquid paper stuck on the glass, on the side of the machine that corresponds to the black lines on your fax.
Clean this glass strip gently, using a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent. I often use diluted windex. You may need to scrape liquid paper gently with your fingernail. Close the cover.

Next, put a blank sheet into the feeder and make a copy of the blank page. If you have cleaned it properly, the copy will be blank as well. If you still have a line, align it with the feeder and use this as a guide to show you where the glass may still have some **** stuck on it.

Good luck!

Leaves about a 1/4 inch space down middle of paper.


That is the cleaning assembly in the drum cartridge.Either something slipped into the cartridge or the blade tucked. Sounds more like something is in the cartridge blocking the drum from both cleaning and charging/
