The sign of a low toner is bizarrely enough, a very dirty print out covering who page.

Toner leaking and low quality copy


I would check the transferbelt/wastebox/cleaning unit to see if it is full or have a problem with cleaning.
If it is full it will make a soundt as some toner is forced out of the wastebox. I've seen a few examples of cleaning blades that does not clean smoothly too. When the blade moves toner scatters.
It it is full, empty the wastebox and change the cleanin blade.

If not, check the drum and the drum cleaning. I've had a "jumping" cleaning blade on the drum too, also resulting in toner scattering inside the machine. It that is the case, the blade must be changed.

In order to make this machine run kind of OK, you need to keep it super clean, change developer and other parts at least as often as Ricoh says in the service manual.
Make sure you have the latest firmware model, and the right toner.

It is a machine that runs dirty, and based on the POS Adonis series of machines from Ricoh.
For other viewers here, stay away from the Ricoh Aficio 350/450, 1035/45, 2035/45 and newer models like the MP 3500/4500.

You will notice companies that sell copiers from differente brands often have decided not to sell this model from Ricoh, and just choose a different make/brand as their machines (in this segment) are better.

Continue to get a message to change drum soon. Changed drum already. Print quality is still not good.


hi

This message would continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum counter, follow the instructions listed below.

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key on the control panel.
    The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
  3. Press 1 to reset the drum count.
  4. Close the front cover.

Poor copy quality - smudgy copies - changed toner - still the same.


check your OPC drum life, if you have a poor quality with a new cartridge installed (light copy, dirty copy) the opc drum must be replaced, check you machine counter if you have reach 100k copies you need to replace the drum, if you are using a new OPC DRUM, you need to clean the machine, you have to call for service because there is many parts that muat removed to clean properly.

Bad photo quality after changing drum


your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5)print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,

remove the drum unit from the machine, you will see a glass called **** glass under the drum unit. if that glass is dirty, just clean it with alcohol and cotton.

1710n Printer - poor print quality


You need to inspect your drum unit as well. If you can line up the marks on your page with the drum then you will need to replace the drum unit. If you donot find any problem with the drum unit then check the fuser unit on the back of the printer. Be very careful when checking the fuser since it is EXTREMELY hot. Good Luck

Improve print quality


If you have changed drum AND toner, and reset drum count, cleaned scan slit glass on lit then only other thing to clean that can cause dirty prints is laser glass, (remove drum, inside where drum goes there is a slit the rund width of printer on inside middle "ceiling"

The orange piece I take it is the lower heat roller at rear, cleaning this is not going to fix anything.. this area called the fuser sometimes the fuser wears the coating off the upper heat roller (above orange one) and leaves like a smudge mark on prints, like I say cleaning wont fix replacingfuser with new would be what is required

I find a lot of grey shading on prints on this model are from faulty toner cartridges, next is drum then worn fuser roller... Stop a print half way (timing) in machine remove drum and look at print, after drum but pre fuser ,to see if image is ok before entering fuser, then we know if that is your problem
