    Ricoh MP C307 - ITB waste buildup

    IMG_0800.jpg
    This is the second MP C307 that I have seen with waste toner piled up in front of the ITB cleaning section. The first one would only run a few ACC prints before piling up again and producing prints with incomplete fill-in of solids.

    I am new to this model. Is this "normal" and just needs to be vacuumed on a constant basis, or is there a something I am missing that will help them operate cleanly?

    I have the same "problem" on MP C306 and 307 every 40/45 K pages. A little vacuum and you're done

    Depending on it's mileage the ITB unit will probably need replacing. There is a hell of a lot of paper fibre in that picture though, does the customer run particularly cheap paper?

    I am in agreement with TonerMunkeh. That does not look like toner against the cleaning blade. It is either paper lint or air borne fiber from something in the environment such as short fiber asbestos.

    Yes. That's cheap paper fiber. Hit it with a vacuum and go. I do it all the time.

    I don't know this model but if the belt is within life you can disassemble cleaning section and clean all the paper/toner cr.p inside. Then don't forget to stop using cheep paper/non original toner.
