It could be the photoconductor belt which is worn out. its no use replacing photoconductor belt as its around $1000. my advise will be to change the whole printer. SPC210SF is not a good printer. it has alot of problems and its very noisy. I work in Ricoh.

Scanner leaving black streaks


There are two possible fixes.

Download the latest firmware update by CLICKING HERE

The following is provided by courtesy of Lexmark:
Problem Vertical lines; Auto document feeder scan anomaly; ADF scanning problem; Scan issue; Scanner issue; Visible line; Streaks show on page; solid line down the page; Top to bottom line; Smudge runs down the page; Opaque line; Broken line; Bar all the way down the page Solution Overview

This article provides the self-diagnostic steps necessary to evaluate top-to-bottom streaks that appear when copying or scanning.

Important! This is seldom a scanner hardware failure.

The main reason for this anomaly is debris or marks on the scanner glass that is used for Auto document feeder (ADF) page scans.

Printed or Scanned Page Illustration

copyvertstreaks.jpg

Who should consider this article?

Any user of an MFP or All-In-One printer experiencing the following symptoms:

  • -Vertical lines only when using the Autodocument Feeder (ADF).
  • -Observed with any type of scan job (e-mail, ftp, solutions, fax).
  • -However, normal expected output when the page is scanned from the scanner flatbed.



ADF scan behavior

Think of it this way:

  • -The page is pulled from the ADF.
  • -The moving page slides across an ADF-designated portion of glass.
  • -The image sensor, which is located under the glass, reads and interprets the moving page's contents.
  • -Contamination on this ADF glass is seen by the image sensor for the entire length of the page.
  • -The image processor interprets the image sensor's repeated capture of this contamination as a vertical solid line.
  • -Any ADF scan function now exhibits a vertical line.

Suggested Diagnosis and Fix




Step Action 1 Locate the portion of the glass designated for ADF scans.
HINT: The glass location differs by model. This area is often separate from the scanner flatbed. Please reference User's Guide for more information if you are having a difficult time locating this designated area.
2 Perform a visual inspection for any of the following recurring culprits:

  • -Clear adhesive tape
  • -Glue
  • -Ink pen
  • -Paper
  • -Marker
  • -White out
  • -Staples
  • -Environmental dust or dirt
HINT: Ink marks can be especially hard to see and almost translucent at first sight. However, the image sensor (CCD) registers them as a mark. 3 Use a clean, soft, moistened cloth to thoroughly clean and remove any marks or debris. 4 Inspect the underbelly or underside of the ADF for any marks or debris. 5 Perform another scan to see if cleaning the glass alleviated the issue. 6 Repeat the procedure if a vertical line still appears.
Remember! Printing and scanning from the scanner flatbed work fine.
7 This time, place an intentional mark on a blank sheet of paper and take note of its location. Now place that sheet of paper in the ADF and make a copy.
8 Evaluate the distance of the vertical line to the your mark. 9 Inspect that area of the glass for further debris or marks and clean as necessary.

Why is there still a line showing through middle of pages when scanning/printing via top document tray of toshiba e stuido 351c? I know who to clean glass area but not top tray.


Does this line appear when you try to print to the machine? Or when you make copies on the scan bed? If so, then you most likely have a mark on the drum unit. If not, then the **** glass that the document feeder uses is located to the left of the large glass surface, attempt to clean that and ensure that no mark or scuff marks are on the **** glass.

the fault is a mark on the glass over which the paper passes when being copied. it is the rectangular glass that is probably only 1cm wide but the full A4 length across the screen. Clean the mark off this thoroughly and voila, fixed.

Vertical lines printed on right side of every page


Would be helpful to know the brand and model of the printer. Sometimes this is caused by not returning the slide used to clean the primary corona wire to its original position (usually to the extreme left side of the toner cartridge) after cleaning the corona wire. If you haven't cleaned the corona wire, you should follow instructions and do that first.

Panasonic Panafax UF-885 - Heavy lined marks down side of paper


First print a report to see if the lines appear without using the scanner. If this is the case clean the charge wire. If you pin it down to the scanner, it is probably a poor solder joint on the cis unit. Take it out and run a hot soldering iron over all the joints on the reverse side of the cis.

Lines along edge of paper


1 of 3 things I can think of off top of my head.
Since they are straight, I would suspect the transfer unit.
If it were just one color it would be that imaging unit.
Unlikely the fuser.
It doesn't sound line an issue called bar coding ,where the machine prints random lines. That would be a software issue.
Take the transfer unit out and inspect it for the marks.
I am assuming the streaks are on all colors correct?
If it isn't on the transfer belt, and on all colors check the fuser and see if its latched.

Prints a strip of black down middle of page


You need to open the small lid on each toner cartridge (to reveal the drum cylinder) and check if the line mark appears on any of them. If the case, you have some sort of contamination making a permanent mark on the affected cartridge. It can be a piece of paper, dirt, or loose part. If the toners are clean, your problem might be routed to the LSU (laser scanner unit) for which you need an Authorized Service Center to assist you.
