Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D Copier
I have a Ricoh Aficio 1018 and need to do some service to it. The problem I am having is that it is printing black lines on the paper. Due to the pattern, it looks like the culprit is the Photoconductor. I took it out and saw that the photoconductor was indeed dirty. I need detailed instruction on cleaning it.
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.
