My Ricoh Aficio printer 1018 is telling me to "load paper 8 1/2 * 11" on the screen whenever i try to print anything from any computer in the network because i am using RJ 45 instead of normal...


Make sure you have 8.5" x 11" paper loaded into at least one of the paper trays, and make sure it's loaded in the same orientation as the page you are trying to print. Also check to be sure the copier is set to recognize 8.5" x 11" paper -- it may be set for a different size. On the main Copy screen, if you select the paper tray, does it show 8.5" x 11"?

Ricoh Aficio 1018 printing lines, seems to be photoconductor


Cleaning the drum will not help. Depending on many factors including drum condition, number of pages printed etc, you will need at least to replace the drum cleaning blade. This is a common cause of black streaks. The drum should have been clean. The fact that it has toner on the surface is pretty good proof that the cleaning blade is bad. The part number for the blade is B0392289. I would do a search for this part and get one before you even think about trying to deal with the streaking problem. Once you get the blade, if you are mechanically inclined then replacing the blade is not difficult.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Sounds like the wrong driver. Get the PCL5 driver for your model model from ricoh-usa.com. In a pinch use the HP 4 driver, it will get you basic printing.

Ricoh 1018 is printing grey not black. Tried changing toner with same result


It sounds like the developer needs to be changed. Call a technician. This is something that you cannot do.
