Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow these step by step instructions on how to install drum unit:

1. Open front cover of copier.
2. Rotate lever (maybe blue) to lower transfer/transport assembly.
3. Rotate Developer/Toner assembly handle to move assembly away from drum unit. There is either a Phillips screw or a plastic gripped screw that needs to be removed.
4. Then, carefully, pull the drum unit 2/3 of the way out. At this point, the back half of the unit needs to be supported while pulling the rest of the way out.
5. Open new drum unit.
6. Remove all packing materials with red tag attached...especially black paper covering new drum surface.
7. The new Drum Unit has guides on top that line up with guides in the machine....carefully insert unit in copier until it seats FULLY.
8. Reinstall screw to front of unit.
9. Rotate Developer/Toner Assembly lever to cam back against Drum Unit.
10. Rotate Transfer/Transport Assembly lever to lift assembly upward and latch.
11. Close the front cover and we are done.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

I need to know the part number for the toner replacement bottle for the Ricoh Aficio 2045 PCL 6

Ricoh Aficio 2045 copier/printers take the Ricoh Type 3110D Toner Cartridge. Go with OEM toner on these machines. The generic version tends to make them run dirty.

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.
