Laser printing problems

Our OKIDATA C9200 Laser Printer is outputting prints that are weak in color and there is streaking. We have installed new toner cartridges and a new imaging head. There was some improvement, but still the prints are not as good as they should be.

Can anyone help?

    I have been living with this problem since I purchased the unit.  It has always had streaks on the right side of color copies.  I typically only use black/white images so this wasn't a problem, but now I need nice color copies.

Hi Gene,

Hope this will give you hints. If you could possibly acccess and print the machine diagnostic or record counters by pressing combination buttons from Off to On mode, please check the drums life and other counter records. On more complex problem with this type of printing output involves high voltage section circuit, fuser and developer.

Best regards,
Rosener

My Ricoh 3500 color printer no longer is printing in color--just greys. It does not seem to be a problem with the color cartridges. Also, it streaks from left to right across a page from light to lighter...


The streaking could be anything internal to the printer, such as the transfer belt or a drum unit. As for the lack of color, that sounds like it is a setting in the print driver that got changed from printing in color to printing in monochrome or grayscale. Look through your print driver settings to see if you can locate this setting and change it back to color. Also, once you print in color again you may notice that the streaking is a specific color, which will help to troubleshoot that issue.

MFC-9440 CN Laser Printer is producing vertical color line streak


Colored vertical streaks - looks like a transfer belt problem, and it's not user fixable. You may need a new belt unit - you can find it for around US$ 80-120, but you may want to have a technician inspect the unit first, since it could arguably be the drum instead, and you don't want to fork around US$ 100 and replace the wrong part.
You can try showing a printer sample at a print shop; by looking at the streaks it is possible to diagnose drum, fuser or belt problems.
Here you find a much more detailed page, for another printer model, but the issues are mainly the same for most color printers:

Red prints as Orange


If this is magenta being weak (light) on all the things you print (try doing a test pritn, and a configuration page from the printers own menu system). this will be the dirty laser lens/mirrors problem that is very common with this printer.

Solution is either

Dismantle (it IS quite a lot of work, but fairly straightforward methodical screwdriver work) the printer to remove the laser unit. Take cover off the laser unit and CAREFULLY clean the lenses and mirrors. NOTE take care not to disturb the alignment of any part of the laser optics, and be especially careful with the mirrors as they are surface silvered and V easily scratched.

You can find NEW laser units on a certain internet auction site, and also (genuinely) refurbished exchange printers. Both of these two opttions will obviously save time and effort, but be more expensive.

Okidata C5200N printer: streaky copies on magenta


If the streaks are only from the magenta then your magenta drum is bad. If you recently replaced it, it may still be under warranty.

Color Laser Printer prints a streak


Usually a yellow streak would mean the yellow pcu needs to be replaced. You can order pcus from a dealer and put it in yourself.

Oki C5800 prints magenta streaks


Streaks can be caused by a number of things
The fuser
The ETB
The toner cartridge
The firmware
The printer needs a cleaning.
The slot in the printer.
Incorrect Media.

Try cleaning the printer, use a lint-free cloth for the ETB, DO NOT touch the belt with your fingers, the oil from fingers will often make things worse.
Always use a lint-free cloth, if you ever encounter dirt inside the printer, dampen the cloth.

Calibrate the printer.
From the printer's control panel menu
Configure Device-> Print Quality-> Calibrate now.
(Press the Checkmark key to advance through menus)

ricoh aficio sp C232SF / c231sf When enabled, initializes but does not print Ricoh Aficio SP C232SF / c231sf The situation is. When enabled is initialized, writes that greeedy and is in readiness. No mechanism at this time does not work, except the scanner line. Scanning Starts, black and white is faster than the ruler, the color is slow. The document feeder works off a sheet and hands.

Already there was an inscription about it on the display and in commands the center shows the decrease in black. Only black.

Stove at this time safely lying on the table next to the machine. the line Lamp is normal, but no power is supplied to it. The power supply did not find any problems. In the service you start the registration-work out the engines of development and tape, and a couple of auxiliary.

The situation is quite similar. Sew and successfully both through the grid and through the USB port. I don't know where to look
