You should replace the PCU if prints show any of the following symptoms.

What is causing my Ricoh CL3500N to allow vertical streaks of faded color on my copies?


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.

I have an hp LaserJet 3015 PCL-6 all in one printer, copier & fax. When I use the copy function, there is a black streak running down the length of the copied paper. I tried replacing the toner...


Clean the thin glass strip that sits to the left of the flat bed glass.

That is the glass used when the ADF is being utilized.
There is dirt on it causing the black streak.

Hi, My Canon 3245 Imagerunner is streaking.


Hello,
First, the streaks appears when copy from glass or adf, when printing or all?

Solution #1:
How many copies did you do from last drum changing? if over 80 000 copies, replace the drum unit.
-in case that streaks appears when copy and print

Solution #2:
If the streaks appears only if you copy from adf or glass, clean the glass and dry it out. Both glasses, narrow on left side beneath the adf/cover and glass for copy of original.

Solution #3:
If the streaks are wide and solid, with possible toner left overs, you need to replace fixing film.

Hope that helps!

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N I get gear marks printing on the left edge of every sheet with a 1/4 in. half circle after 33 marks, like below.... could this be toner leaking? Is there a way to clean it? \ \ \ ...


Either the drum unit is marred or some toner has migrated to where it shouldn't be, possibly onto the fuser roller. A thorough cleaning might be in order.

Drum cleaning function doesn't remove toner spots


Did you check:
1) are there wisible marks on drum - like spots, streaks,... if no, first check the copie glass if it appears when you make copies.
2) does it appears when you print too? If yes, also check the fixing unit for spots, ... , but if there is also on drum, that means that the cleaning blade is deformed on some places ( the place where the toner streaks are ). You can use some paper A4, fold it on half and ran it beetwean the drum and cleaning blade.
But if the blade is too heavily worn out, the best solution would be to replace drum unit.

Hope that I helped even a little bit.

Faded streaks for only blak color on Ricoh 3500N laser printer


Your toner cartridge is probably getting low. Toner is actually a powder, and it can get settled during shipments, bringing it home, etc etc. Take out the black toner and give it a gentle side-to-side shake a few times and pop it back in.
That should help.

Streaking on left side of page


there are some possibilities for this problem. i will explain it. 1) First of all check out if the toner is full ,half or near to empty. There is no exact procedure to check the powder left in the toner without opening the toner.but in one toner there comes about near to 1500 copies.if you have got about 1200 to 1300 copies.then its quite possible that the power left is near to empty so the streaks comes on the paper due to less powder left.many times in this case removing and shaking the toner then reinserting the toner again and checking the printout helps. 2) But if you are sure that toner is not empty then other possibility is.in the toner cartridge there is a aluminium drum.its easily seen in the cartridge.once you remove the cartridge. if that drum is got very much used then due to that drum the streaks appear.fox example.if the drum is new the print is very dark.if the drum gets old the print gets very light or with streaks or faded print. 3) Now if drum and toner powder both are proper and still the problem then its the fault in the printer.in your printer there is some toner powder got spilled out on the inner parts from where the printing paper passes.so when the paper passes from the part where the powder is fallen or got collected then the streaks comes.in this case the printer needs internal cleaning and servicing. 4) but in some cases it has been noticed that internal powder of the toner becomes moist and very hard to come out from the toner for printing.in this case either toner needs to be refilled or toner needs to be replaced.you can get the toner refilled from local cartridge refilling store or local stationery shops dealing in cartridge refillings.The cartridge refilling shops also have the same printer for checking the cartridge.so at the refilling shop it will be confirmed whether the fault is in cartridge or printer.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I have a black streak all on one side when i copy ?


If it is just when you copy and not when you print then it is a cleaning issue. Toner cartridge would cause the line to appear on copies, printouts and faxes. There is a piece of glass inside the auto document feeder that is probably dirty. Open up the document feeder as if you were clearing an original document jam. Look for a piece of glass inside the ADF, it will run the length of the document feeder. There is probably some dirt or another popular problem is white out. Clean off the glass with glass cleaner or alcohol and it should fix the problem.
