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.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N When I print a vertical page there are thin black lines going down the left side of the page. What causes it?? And what can I do??


Hi, thin black lines are most likely (but not definitely) caused by something in the black PCU (photoconductor unit), either the drum or the charger. Replacing the black PCU will likely get rid of your lines. The Ricoh code for a black PCU if you don't already have one is 402448.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines


Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

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
