Question about Ricoh Aficio 1515F Plain Paper Laser Fax

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side

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.

Aficio 1515F, indicator error light


Thats' the general 'attention' light when basically anything goes wrong.
I've found some of these machines to be sensitive to the front/side cover switches...it may need adjusting, but if you make sure when you close the right side cover to press firmly at the top/ front of the panel (nearest you), as opposed to more towards the centre or back of the machine (which is the tendency) you may have more luck - that's where the interlock is....hopefully this helps

How to adjust a picture to the scanner


you need to start by opening your scanning software program, scan a picture into your computer, save it. then if your trying to print it out using a different program like microsoft publisher or microsoft word or most other programs. open that program then go to insert, picture from file, then find the picture you saved and insert it. then you can go to any of the edges and click and mover edges up/down left/right to fit the page.


Thank You,

Mikey
