Dents and smears

There is a roller in the copier that leaves dents all the way down the center of the page. how do I get to the roller that might be the problem and adjust it. I think it happens after the ink gets on the paper so that the result is that I have dents and ink blobs running down the center of the page is this a costly repair or can i do it myself

PROBABLY A BAD LOWER FUSER ROLLER. HARD TO GET OUT UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING. NO WAY TO ADJUST, IT JUST NEEDS REPLACED.

RICOH 1224C COPIES ARE SMEARED


Smeared output can also result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

If this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; if not, the thermostat is bad and you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

When documents print out, one side of the copy is smeared. We cleared out a paper jam and I think part of the lining of the roller came off.

As for the noise, there are several complex gear and roller segments that drive the paper between the paper tray, the scanner, the fuser, and the finisher. If these are not perfectly aligned or dirty the printer can make a grinding noise. It's even possible that if the paper is not being fed correctly, that the shift might leave segments of it less accessible to the fuser and prevent the toner from adhering to the page.

But I would try using WD-40 to lubricate some of these components and assume the noise and the smearing are separate issues.

Paper dents


I believe you have two problems. One the dent you are talking about unless I see it I don't know for sure but I believe this is minor and something you need to live with. The paper goes through a fuser which uses a teflon sleeve over a heater surface and a lower pressure roller made of rubber. It may be that you need a new lower pressure roller they get little cuts in them sometimes. Two the spots are probably from a faulty toner cartridge. It has a leak.
