Question about Ricoh Aficio CL7200 Laser Printer
Color streaks are typically caused by the photoconductor unit (which contains the drum) for that specific color, so your most likely solution is to replace the magenta and yellow photoconductor units. For the CL7200, all 3 color photoconductors come in one kit, EDP #402305. Replacing the magenta and yellow PCUs will more than likely get rid of your streaks.
If you replace the PCUs and one or both of the streaks are still there, you'll need to replace the developer units (EDP #402306) but I'd be very surprised if the new photoconductor units don't get rid of the streaks.
The reason you're not getting a "replace PCU" or "replace developer unit" message is because those messages only come up after a preset number of copies; they have nothing to do with the actual image quality and condition of the units.
If you want to make sure the photoconductor units are the problem, swap the yellow or magenta PCU with the cyan PCU (since that one isn't giving you streaks) temporarily, and see if you start getting cyan streaks instead of the other color. If that happens, you can be sure it's the PCU causing the problem.
