Replace black PCU ricoh aficio cl3000


To replace the black PCU:

- Turn the printer off.
- Open the cover on the right side (as you're looking at the front of the printer).
- There are two green levers, one toward the front of the printer and one toward the back -- pull these out and lift the cover that they're holding all the way up (it should stay in place).
- Remove the black PCU by pinching the green lever and sliding the unit straight out.

- Take the new PCU out of the box, take off the tape around it and remove the cover on top of the unit.
- Align the new PCU along the rails the same way the old one was aligned (using the green arrow) and slowly slide it in. As you slide it in it will slide out of the bottom cover -- throw that cover away.
- Lower the PCU cover and slide the levers into place.
- Close the side door.
- Turn the printer on.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N When I print a vertical page there are thin black lines going down the left side of the page. What causes it?? And what can I do??


Hi, thin black lines are most likely (but not definitely) caused by something in the black PCU (photoconductor unit), either the drum or the charger. Replacing the black PCU will likely get rid of your lines. The Ricoh code for a black PCU if you don't already have one is 402448.

Ricoh cl3500N printing with blank streaks in middle of page and faded quality black printing and black ink blotches on sides


The voids and blotches can be a bad black pcu, the voids san also be toner on the glass slat obove the pcu,s there are 4 slats one for each color, on the pcu itself on the upper side is a narrow long opening, the glass slat is above this opening when the pcu is in the printer. It will take a flashlight to see any toner on the glass.

My printer flashes alert CS 441 off on. Can you tell me what's wrong?


The SC 441 is a color pcu motor lock. One of the waste toner augers is clogged with waste toner not letting the drum turn. The only real fix is to replace the color pcu unit. If you could get the auger and drum out it might be possible to free it up, but you will probably damage the drum in the process.

Thought I would ask you, since u have answered Ricoh CL3500N


According to the maintenance manual, broken lines are caused by the "dithering" setting. Also there is an in depth color calibration process you can execute. Have you checked the PCU unit?

Here is the maintenance manual:

Assembly of Ricoh color laser printer - error message


On the Ricoh 3713 you can do a hard reset by going on the main board toggling dip switch 101-1 on and then off, entering 97, pressing the "aps" key, and then power cycling the printer. Might work similarly on the CL3500N.

Ricoh Aficio Color Registration Error


One of our Ricoh CL3500N printers- less than a year old- gave us a "color regist error" after changing the transfer belt.

Ran the "adjust color regist" without results. It would just finish and pop back up with the same error.

Color test page printed no color, just BW

I reseated everything, and even replaced the PCU without positive results.

A couple hours later I went back, took everything out (be sure to keep the pcus out of the light!), and vaccuumed the heck outta that printer.

For whatever reason- maybe there was a chunk of toner hanging out, maybe I knocked something loose or back in place, whatever- but when I put all the parts in and turned it on, the error was gone and color printed great!
