how are you doing guys?

i am working on Ricoh Aficio MP 3352SP copier, and this is what it does;

copying = Faint
Printing = good quality

Since the printing is okay, i don't think that it is a developing or drum unit.
i have tried to change copying modes but it is only the "pale" at a maximum density can give me a fair quality copy

what could be the problem?
please help.

Yes it is the drum/developer had this many times
you will probably get away with just replacing the drum then running set up
but it is worth replacing the developer aswell
what is the meter count if it is any where near the life time you need to replace them
my advise is also to use only original parts

on average, how many pages does the original Drum Unit produce before you replace?

Ricoh recommended is 60K
on average it seems to be more like 50K

Now what do i have to buy to repair this Drum unit;
Developer ?
does it also have Cleaner Blade ?

you can buy a complete unit
or replace the items
always replace the drum and cleaning blade at the same time
attached is the service schedule

stating the obvious here - when internal prints are fine & copies are poor (light) optics are your issue. Just a cleaning of mirrors & glass, or a possible problem. You can also scan something to verify.
