Have you tried a New Drum Cartridge?
It sounds like the drum cartridge is bad. Do you know how old the drum cartridge is or how many copies are on it?
If you take the drum cartridge out (Do not tip this upside down or touch the drum) you should be able to see a shiny long cylinder called the drum underneat the unit. Does it look like its covered with toner?
If it is covered with toner, then the cartridge needs to be replaced and that will take care of your problem with the dark copies.
If its not covered, then it could be a dirty optics which would require for your machine to be serviced. But 99 out of 100 times its the drum cartridge.

Hope this helps.
good luck.

The fax is printing dark black all over the page


It seems that there no charge voltage when copies are made.First thing you can try is to replace the drum unit or the toner cartridge.If this doesn't help,there could be bad charge circuit board that needs to be replaced.

Black streaks on prints


Where the original page that you wish scanned/faxed there will be a device called a "scan part". This device "reads" the paper to be faxed/scanned as it passes. It usually is found very near where the paper to be faxed goes in.
If there is a spec of debris on this part it will cause a fine line straight down the document. If its dirty, the document will be too! Just give it a good cleaning and you should be fine.

Ricoh fax 3310, when printing has dark background on left side, new drum has been installed.


Ricoh's Support suggests reseating the toner cartridge or re-distributing the toner inside the cartridge. This makes sense since you're experiencing darkness only on 1 side of the page. I hope this helps you with your issue and wish you the Best of Luck!

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side


If the print can be rubbed off then this suggests the fuser unit is not working correctly. It could be that the thermistor is covered with toner and making the machine think the fuser is hot enough when it's not.

The black line could also be caused by the fuser if one of the pick off fingers is coated with toner or has worn into the Teflon of the roller.

Does the machine show the lines when you print a page from memory - such as a counter or config page? If not, this would suggest the optical path is dirty. Try cleaning the glass and look at the mirrors inside the scanner to see if they are dirty/dusty.

Printing problem


Are the problem prints all from the same source? If so the problem could be on the transmission end. Can you connect to your fax and print to it from a local workstation? If so print several images with dark solid patterns and see if it is actually the printhead. Try printing in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black colors to to rule out each individual printhead.

Ricoh FAX2900L printing too dark


check the scanner white roller witch is under the front cover where you feed in the paper to be scanned sometimes this gets dirty you can take it out by releasing the levers on each side..this also sets the density for copying.. if you have just put a newe cartridge in also check that it is seated properly as the contacts for the charge might not be connecting properly

Problem with printing...


First and most important with Brother machines is , you need to use genuine brother supplies. Almost every time I service a brother and I find generic toner and drums cause the print quality issues. New supplies cost as much as a new machine. If not the supplies then it is laser or power supply.
