Ricoh Aficio CL 2000N printing problems

Recently, laser printer started printing faint lines on pages and there are white lines (streaks) and gradual fading through the print on the right side. There are supposedly built in warnings to replace any consumables, but I have no messages on the printer. Also, troubleshooting in manual is no help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Christy

    This is a color laser. One thing to note, when I print a wide bar of color down the right hand side of page (yellow, red or blue) the color is solid w/ faint black lines running through it. However, if I change the bar to solid black, there are multiple white lines running through it and it icreases toward the edge of the page, (giving the black bar a fading appearance.)

    Thanks!!

    Toner cartridge wasn't the culprit. Could it be the black PCU?

If the colors are good and solid with no fades, only black streaks, then black is the culprit. I suggest replacing the black cartridge.

    Thats what I meant, the black PCU. It is a cartridge.

I believe what you are referring to is the drum inside the toner cartridge. The drums are usually very strong colors, blue or green and if it is streaking then the drum cleaning blade has failed on the inside and you need to replace the cartridge.

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.

Balck and white streaks on left side of paper


Usually if there are streaks you need to change the pcu that is the same color as the lines. If the streaks are gray it also could be the fuser, but i would think it is the pcu.

Color Streaks down length of page


My rep advised that if this problem is occuring when using the feeder, the small glass strip to the left of the glass can have some sort of either high lighter or white out stuck to it. He suggests cleaning this with some alcohol.

Black lines (streaks) printing on left of page on my ricoh 2000n


Running cardstock lightly misted with water or dilute cleaning solution through several times can help. Use either the feed button or print using a program that allows you to print blank pages.
