This is usually caused by defective, or empty, toner cartridges. A good cleaning and replacing the old waste toner drum as will as the defective cartridge with a certified manufacturer's cartridge usually fixes the problem.
You can just empty the waste toner bottle. here is what you need to do.
Here is also a manual for your machinehttp://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/html/oi/re/model/cl3500/cl3500en.htm
Detailed instructions on cleaning the Waste toner bottle on Page 32 of the Maintenance Guide. Instead of replacing just empty it. Just be careful as the toner is toxic so you can also vacuum the toner out of the Waste Toner Bottle.
Depending on the age of the model, it could be a couple of things. ***Never touch the drum or expose it to bright light*** The drum unit is bad. It's the shiny brightly-colored large roller in the center of the machine. On most recent smaller machines like this on it's integrated into the toner cartridge. Check it out. If it has toner build up on the ends, it's bad. or The corona wires need cleaning. Some machines have a small slide that moves from one side of the printer to the other which cleans the hidden corona wires. It's usually brightly colored.
The corona wires are also integrated into the toner cartridge in many smaller machines
