Question about Ricoh Aficio 1515F Plain Paper Laser Fax
Our 1515f keeps printing a line down the left side of the page, with some dark specks as well, and the print on the left smudges easily. I`ve changed the photoconductor and cleaned the machine, to no avail. Any ideas?
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.
