Question about Ricoh Aficio CL3500N Laser Printer
Did you re-fill the black toner cartridge with genuine Ricoh toner or from somewhere else? It might be the wrong granularity.

There's either something blocking the laser in that area, , there's a dirty spot on the charge or transfer corona (if it uses coronas), or something is caught on the wiper blade inside the drum cartridge. Your first step is to see if there is a corona cleaner that slides back and forth and make a test print. If you don't have that, or if that doesn't solve the problem, put the toner cartridge into another of the same printer and see if the problem follows; if it does, replace the cartridge. If it doesn't, look for something obstructing the laser path to the drum, either on the cartridge itself or inside the printer (possibly a label that came loose and is hanging down). If you don't have another printer, then replace the cartridge. If the problem goes away, you had a bad cartridge. If it doesn't, see the last paragraph. Let me know how it turns out!
