Question about Ricoh Aficio 220 Laser Printer
Probably not much you can do yourself....as there are 2 possibilities here. First there is the possibility that you have lost fusing pressure. The fusing unit in this machine using a combination of heat and pressure to "fuse" the toner onto the paper. You may have broken a fuser frame which is a common problem on the 220. This cause the fusing rollers to loose their pressure against each other and thus stop fusing. This usually causes poor or no fusing more on one side than the other. You might want to let me know if the toner wiping off is consistent accross the entire page.
The other possible cause is your thermistor set is bad. The thermistor reds the temperature of the fuser rollers so the machine knows when they are up to the proper temperature for fusing. I some circumstances I have seen them go bad and always register to the machine that the fuser is hot enough when it is not.
Either way you are going to have to be comfortable with removing the fusing unit from the machine and then dis-assembling parts of it in order to repair it. If you are interested in trying this you can reply to this post and I can at least give you the part numbers you might need depending on what you find.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
