Question about Gestetner DSc224 Copier
Hi, i got a Gestetner DSc224 (also Ricoh aficio 1224c) with a duplex unit.
The printer starts after about 150 full color duplex pages to print inside the color printet areas to mix the colors up. The not printet areas on the pages are still white, but where is color, the color looks like the printer added some black. Both waste toner cartiges are emtied freshly and the 4 Toners are original Ricoh Toner. After about a 30 seconds printbreak the streaks are gone but reapear on the 3rd page again.
And as well there is on the top of the pages are black spots, as if there is a toner hil on a area and falls of becaus of vibration. but as with the problems befor, after a short break its gone and reapers on the 3 page.
the pinter has about 80.000 black prints and 10.000 color prints.
thx a lot for your help.
The printer in the service program has a option for the printer to do a process control on selected number of copies that number for your machine should be lower because you print about 150 duplex pages an that is 300 single pages so go in the service menu and set the process control on some 30 pages to be done .
Follow the next procedure:
- For to enter the service mode:
1. Press the clear modes key(the yellow key)
2. Type “107” at the numeric keypad.
3. Press the clear/stop key(red key)
and hold it down until the screen
display changes (for about 3 seconds).
4. Touch “Copy Sp” on the touch screen.
In the upper right corner on the touch screen has a key named [Sp Direct],touch that key and enter with the numeric key pad the numbers:3003 and on he screen will appear [Lubricant Interval] set the interval on 30 pages and press the "#" key for to confirm the value. After that for to return to normal mode press the exit key on the touch screen several times.
Also do the [maintenance -clean/adjust] option once after 1000 or 500 pages printed. Because this is a office machine and when you print on her a lot of pages per day the machine start to get dirty.
PLEASE RATE ME IF THIS HELPS

Did you change the black drum unit?
Did you check transfer and transfer cleaning blade?
It seem like you have problems with transfer blade or drum unit.
If you say that you have 80000 copies without changing any drum start with black drum unit and cleaning blade on transfer.
