    Does it do it if you print out a counter sheet? User tools, counter, print.

1. If it doesn it when you print and copy then you have toner on the laser **** glass.

2. If it does it only when you scan then you might want to check for dust buildup on the mirrors or your laser is going bad. I dont think it's the laser though.

3. A bad drum can also cause ghosting and so can a bad fuser.

Suggestion: give it a good cleaning, check the drum and fuser for wear. Make a copy and print off the counter page or something. Compare the two.

Horizontal streaks and smears across whole page. Still does this with lightest setting. Can't read copies at all. Model- ricoh aficio 1018


sounds like the recycling pipe is blocked or cleaning blade has worn out
You need to take the drum unit appart and vac out the recycling coil and clean the cleaning blade.

Can MAC OSX 10.5.x use Ricoh Aficio 1018D? Do you now alternativ drivers for ricoh aficio 1018D. HP LaserJet 5-Gutenprint v5.1.3 is o.k. for A4 but not for A3


this is an older model copier, however try going to www.savin.com and click downloads then drivers. there will be a tab for drivers, this is 10.5 though not snow leopard. Ricoh/Savin/gestetner and Lanier are all the same copier, but savin site has more mac info than Ricoh site. Usually I have better luck using already installed Mac drivers than Gutenprint, if you type in the ip it should give you a list of preinstalled Mac drivers. I believe the Ricoh 1018 corresponds to a Savin 2518 if that helps. Also use print daemon, not ipp. hope this helps somewhat as Macs are difficult with options and such on most printers. also must use PS3 for best results.

Ricoh Aficio 1018D turn off Z problem


Something is jammed somewhere, turning the power off is not the reason that the jam indicator won't go out...you're missing something. Check all areas of the copier -just because the "Z" is lit doesn't mean that the remaining jam isn't somewhere else
