Question about Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer
I have two AP3800C's the first has started putting black blotches on both sides of the paper, even when printing single side. The other won't load a magenta toner, otherwise it was looking good - I only need one printer so which one do I fix - and how?? Many thanks Benjamin
The black slodges are most likely to be caused by the dev unit dropping black toner. Swap the black devs around and vaccum any loose toner out of the machine. The problem with the other one it that the magenta toner pump could have a fault. I would try this before cleaning the toner tubes.

Hi , i think first try the black blotch one , take the other ones black pcu and stick it in this one , you can take the development unit and stick it in there to , it just sounds like a dirty charge roller on the black one , fore the one not wanting to load magenta , is a bit more complicated , it will need to be stripped and the magenta toner supply pipe must be vacuumed , cause it gets blocked .
