Question about Ricoh Aficio CL2000N Laser Printer

Color Streaks down length of page

When we print a configuration page (Black&White) it prints out fine with no streaks. If we print anything with color it leaves streaks (all colors) down the entire length of the page. Replaced fuser unit, transfer unit, toner cartridges - everything we could think of - no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Printer is a Ricoh Aficio CL4000DN.

    I have the same problem. Replaced fuser, streaks are still there. I can now see streaks of color on the "spongy" roller that was replaced with the fuser. Perhaps toner is leaking.

    To the poster above, I found this site after searching for a solution to my Xerox Phaser streaking.  Very unimpressed with this model also.

This is a laser printer, neither a copier nor a multifunction unit, therefore it has no glass. At least, I cannot find any glass in it.
I finally had an authorized Ricoh repair center examine it and found streaks on the black unit that pulls out of the right side (I forget the part's name, <$90). We replaced it and things are better but streaks of color remain. They suggested replacing the color one (about $400) but the cost is prohibitive right now, so I'll live with those streaks.
On a related note, I remain unimpressed with this printer's quality and inconsistency. For example, greys often print in pink; nothing has ever resolved this. I refuse to put any more money into it. When I can afford to do so, it will be replaced, probably by a Xerox Phaser.

My rep advised that if this problem is occuring when using the feeder, the small glass strip to the left of the glass can have some sort of either high lighter or white out stuck to it. He suggests cleaning this with some alcohol.

Check your consumables. Press utility then check consumables. If anything is at the end of life, it needs replaced. It sounds like your drums are not cleaning properly and need to be changed. If they are fairly new, then I would suspect the transfer belt. If you know hoe to get into service mode you can go into test mode. Then run your halftones on each color. If it moves around, its your drums. If it stays in one spot, its your transfer belt. Also you could check your drum units. If they have streaks going across the green drum, like its dirty, then its coming from the drums.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?


One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.

Usually if there are streaks you need to change the pcu that is the same color as the lines. If the streaks are gray it also could be the fuser, but i would think it is the pcu.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Hey Chuck, Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault. Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages. If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Without actually seeing a print sample or the machine, my bet would be on the black print cartridge. Even though it reads a an acceptable level of toner, the cartridge itself sounds like it has developed a proble. 1. It's the most obvious 2. It't the cheapest place to start. If it does not correct the problem, you can still use it later. 3. It's the problem in about 80% of these types of cases. 4. I know it should be fine, but if things didn't go wrong, I wouldn't have a job! Let me know. If not we'll investigate further. Ed

You need to clean the printer. See your manual for instructions. It is probably dust on the laser lens
