Question about Ricoh Aficio Office Equipment & Supplies
Hi Folks, we got a 2232C (actually its an infotec isc 2432 but thats the very same model B147) We print about 20.000 pages per year b/w and 1200 per year in full color. Mostly DIN A4 80gr/m² plain white paper. we had color stripe in the direction of paper travel on b/w prints and after about 500 pages the printout gets light. so we do some full black copies. about 10 pages, and we are back to full black from a 50% grey. now we had to push 4500 pages full color. but it should have a reasonable quality. so we replaced all pcu and dev units (inlcluding SC5999-x for each) we print in lanscape for punching 4 holes in it. about 1500 pages where aceptable, but now we are back to stripes. now we have stripes on the back. its about 2,5cm/1in wide in the center and at both ends of the paper too, but less and smaler. I can make out black, magenta and cyan. no yellow. looks like a rooler is cover in toner and transfers it to the page. while the sheet is pasing by. the machin is at 500.000 total prints&copies now. fusing is new, oil is new, dev and pcu kycm is new. im a bit dumstuck as to where to look now. thanks manne
1.If you find stripes on the printouts from your Ricoh Aficio 2232c printer, then the problem might be with the Image Transfer Cleaning blade.
2. Purchase a new Cleaning blade from a trusted retailer. The Part number of the product is Ricoh Aficio 2232c/2238c Transfer Belt Cleaning Blade Ricoh AD04-1081, AD041081.
3. Dismantle your printer with reference to the printer's manual. Locate the Image Transfer Cleaning Blade.
4. Remove the rotating screws and take the component out. Send it to the manufacturer for recycling, if applicable.
5. Insert the new Cleaning Blade into the designated position and tighten the screws. Print a test page to check whether the issue is resolved.

AS I understand you have black stripes on the back side of the print, so if this is the case, the Image transfer cleaning blade need to be replaced. Part number is: Genuine Ricoh Aficio 2238C Transfer Belt Cleaning Blade Ricoh AD04-1081, AD041081

Testimonial: "Thanks, first I cleaned that blade, not much change. then i vacuumed the whole unit, especially the brush and used iso to clen the blade again, better, then i used a very sharp knife to scrap the small edge of the silicon blade to get the that scraping 90° edge back to sharp (i never touched that wide part from the cleaning blade that touches the belt), boy, that did the trick, prints are perfect, anyway I order a new blade right away, the old one isnt that sharp on the corners anymore. only a question of time to come back at me. seams as if the waste toner was building up on that edge and kind of smeared the wast back onto that transfer belt. dont know why, but I never have had that unit in my hand, owning this machine for a quarter million prints. I screwd that one up seriusly. so, many thanks for pointing me in the right direction. any suggestions where I could get that velcro and foam for the pressure plate assembly to fix it to the lid? (B597-4326, B597-4333, B351-4322) I also need those foam wheels for the paper exit on that 2 tray finisher sr90 / B599(the last moving part that touches the paper when it exit the machine) but I dont have that spare parts document, so I dont know the numbers. do you sell this stuff? I would likt to retourn that favor and buy my parts from you."
This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

What you are describing is a bad print head. You can try running the eliminate light stripes several times, and jet substitution, but most likely the print head will have to be replaced to remedy your problem.
You can try googling. Phaser printer print heads or phaser printheads.
There seems to be a secondary market appearing for those print heads. I can tell you from Xerox, if you have no maintenance agreement, they cost $750 per print head.
Honestly, having worked on about every type of color printer known to man, the new solid ink phaser printers, produce a dry ink image of 2400 x 2400 dpi with ink particles that align end to end. The resolution of those printers are remarkable and can be purchased for less than the price of one of those new print heads.
Now for reliable, albeit somewhat not as sharp a color image, but still exceptional, you really can not beat an HP.
The ink stick technology really no longer has the color vividness advantage it initially had. The inks that align end to end, have ended that advantage and are sure a lot cheaper to operate per page.

Hi, I have the same problem, which has just been diagnosed as a defective developer drum by a repair specialist. The new part is $120.00. Should have the serviced unit back
