Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D Copier

Ricoh Aficio 1018 - Squeaky noise when it copies.

My office copier makes fine copies but it makes this "i'm about to die on you" squeak while making copies. Our company wants to sell it because we do not use it much and I'm elected to fix the noise. Any ideas? Can I oil something?

    Its not coming from any of the trays or the sheet feeder. The squeak continues until the fan cycles down and/or it goes into "sleep" mode after the copy job is finished. It starts as soon as the copy button is pushed and lasts about 15 seconds after the last copy. Hope that helps. Oh I believe that it is coming from the right side of the machine when you are facing it.

    Thank you for your help. I was hoping that it was just needing a little lubricating. But, it helps us know how much to sell it for. Thank you for your assistance.

    It could be in a number of places. Do you have a way of narrowing it down?

It could need a fan replacement. Possibly the bearing is going out on it causing the squealing noise

Functional problem sc 390 on ricoh photocopier, despite replacing drum, developer,blade,gears. after removing 9 copies it reads functional problem.


SC 390 on an Aficio 1018 will most likely be a bad TD (toner density) sensor, if you've already replaced the drum and developer. (One thing to check quickly though is to pull the PCU out and reinstall it, just to make sure that connection isn't the problem.)

You can either replace the TD sensor by itself, or replace the DV unit (which probably won't be much more expensive). But either way, you'll need to install new developer when you replace the parts.

My Ricoh Aficio printer 1018 is telling me to "load paper 8 1/2 * 11" on the screen whenever i try to print anything from any computer in the network because i am using RJ 45 instead of normal...


Make sure you have 8.5" x 11" paper loaded into at least one of the paper trays, and make sure it's loaded in the same orientation as the page you are trying to print. Also check to be sure the copier is set to recognize 8.5" x 11" paper -- it may be set for a different size. On the main Copy screen, if you select the paper tray, does it show 8.5" x 11"?

Horizontal streaks and smears across whole page. Still does this with lightest setting. Can't read copies at all. Model- ricoh aficio 1018


sounds like the recycling pipe is blocked or cleaning blade has worn out
You need to take the drum unit appart and vac out the recycling coil and clean the cleaning blade.

My copier ricoh aficio mp 2000 makes a continuous creaking like an broken or consumed gear. what's the problem?


MP2000s often have creaking and squeaking issues. Typically it's the brass bushings that ride on roller shafts, so if you can isolate it to an area and clean and lube the bushings, you might be able to fix the noise.

For the Aficio 1018. SC-320 is laser failure - the polygon mirror motor inside the laser has failed and needs replacing. You will need to contact your nearest service agent for repair.

For your RICOH Aficio 1013F - SC-551 is overheat in standby mode as far as I can tell. The circuitry that controls the fuser section ie manages the heat has problem. Unless its right near a source of heat like a heater or has no circulation around you machine you will need contact a repair agent for this machine also.
