First you need to determine if it is optical skew or mechanical skew.
If the machine is used as a printer then do the computer prints come out skewed? If it is not connected to a PC then print out the counter list using UserTools/Counter. If that prints straight then you are dealing with optical skew. Ricoh's in general are bad about the left front corner of the machine drooping from someone pushing down on that corner. If you have optical skew try lifting up the left front corner of the copier and try making a copy. That might fix your problem.
If the UserTools/Couter print out is skewed then your back to a mechanical skew and there are numerous causes for that.
The optical skew is more likely so let's start there.

The problem is in the registration. the front usually or the back bushing on the registration roller is broken. you can see that when you will open the right door, that between the metal roller and the gray rubber roller on the registration has a gap.

Make sure that your paper trays are lined up correctly and tight against the paper in the tray. Also, I would make sure there is not any paper jammed behind the paper tray and make sure the paper is in the paper tray correctly... Good Luck

If the image is skewed on your paper, you have a registration bushing broken.

There is a complete set up to do color registration.
it is a 4 step process. It's DC 685. E-mail me at rak458@aol.com.
I can send you more info that way.
  1. Belt Edge Learn - to align the Transfer Belt positioning system.

  2. Fine Skew Setup - automatically performs horizontal and vertical alignment, and reports any skew in the various images caused by ROS misalignment. This skew must be corrected through manual adjustment

  3. IN/OUT Setup - automatically performs magnification adjustment so that scan lines are the same length for all four colors. Also checks for skew.

  4. Center Setup - Aligns the midpoints of scan lines for all colors, for magnification balance

Sounds like the roller(s) on the left side is missing or is slick (or split). You should have returned it to the place of purchase when you discovered the problem.

HP laserjet 3050 prints skewed vertically


250-sheet input tray (tray 1)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 80 g/m2 or 20 lb paper or fewer pages of heavier media
(25 mm (0.9 inch) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media guides.
NOTE When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input
tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps to prevent multiple sheets of media
from feeding into the all-in-one, which can cause jams.

Hope this helps if not you may have a registration roller problem.

Out of paper message


there is a paper guide that supports paper on the tray, if you look closely you can even see the paper sizes that corresponds with your printer either (lettter size or 8 1/2 x 11) if this is not set correctly then you can get skewed on your prints, if i understand you correctly, or kindly elaborate some more
