    THE OPTICAL MIRRORS USUALLY THE THINNEST MIRROR OFTEN NEEDS CLEANING. LOOKING CLOSELY WITH A LIGHT YOU CAN USUALLY SEE A SMUDGE. THIS HAPPENS FREQUENTLY WITH ME ON CS 1620,2020 IF THEY ARE NEAR A WINDOW OR DUSTY ENVIRONMENT.

Could be caused by a dirty laser unit or a broken transfer roller bushing. Also check that all springs are on the transfer roller. Some technicians remove the springs to get rid of the clucking noise but don't realise it causes other problems.

Could be one of a few things:

Most likely is the transfer roller. If it's dirty or old and not applying enough charge, it may not be pulling all the toner away from the drum. Replacing the transfer roller is easy if you can get a new one.

Are you sure you have the correct toner? The wrong toner can definitely cause copy quality problems.

If the springs that hold the press roller against the hot roller are not properly in place (or if they have started to lose tension) the toner won't be fully fused onto the paper.

I'd start with the transfer roller (black roller that sits opposite the drum on the right side door) first -- it's the most likely culprit.

My Ricoh aficio 1515 printing and copying with background


If background is appearing on your copies, the problem is most likely the photoconductor unit (PCU) which houses both the drum and the developer. It comes as one piece, and you can easily remove the old one and slide the new one in.

The PCU is located to the right of the toner bottle, and the new PCU will come with instructions for replacement, but it is a simple procedure.

If you don't have a local dealer or supplier, you can purchase a PCU online just about anywhere that sells copier toner.

RICOH AFICIO 1515 when printing/copying, comes out with a blured section on the left side (about 1.5 inces wide). I just replaced the drum. Same issue was with the old drum. What else could cause this...


Take you drumback out and lookinto the machine with a flashlight.
There should be a piece of glass that isolates the laser from the rest of the machine, check for dust or toner. Clean if necessary.
