    Ricoh toner flaking

    Hello, I have the following problem with Ricoh 3003 - 6003: sometimes it seems as if the ink is flaking off, then you see a stamp on the next page. We usually solve this by raising the temperature of the fuser, but this does not always work. we sometimes use original toners, but not always. could it have something to do with this?

    Possible causes
    Poor quality toner
    Fuser problems
    Development unit problems
    Overtime Developer
    Misconfigured paper

    cleaning thermistors or replacing them, increase the paper weight setting (even by quite a bit), and/or set the driver setting to "quality"

    And yes: non-original toner could cause that (not that it's forcibly your problem, but don't discard the possibility yet).

    Once you have used non Ricoh toner, the developer is contaminated.

    A qualified Ricoh trained tech can sort that for you.
    Contact your nearest dealer.

    A possible solution for that is to replace the aftermarket toner with an OEM one and then take about 40 A3/DLT skyshots to force the complete refresh of the toner in the developer. I've done it before.
