You may need to find a programming reference on ricoh's web page, that details all the functions. Once you've found it, try creating a binary file with the functions in it using your favourite hex editor, and then copy the file to the printer port.

The printing on the cardboard packaging for the HP cartridge should list the number of pages that it should print.

The "generic" toner works out to about 1 cent per page,

Where to find meter readings on workmate m20i


You have to press the machine status button.
Scroll to" reports"then to "billing meter."
Then press enter and it will print out the total pages printed/copied.
There is no meter per se on the M20. You have to print out the reading on the report.

Hp 4600 LaserJet: magenta and black exhausted after 3000 copies, but most of them were only text. Something must be wrong, at least the configuration. Are there any possibilities to save consumer material?


This depends largely on how much toner on the page there was.

Toner use is estimated at a 5% coverage per page so full page photos take a massive amount but is offset by some pages just having a chapter subject heading.

You can set the printer to print in eccono-mode (information menu - print menumap to see where everything is).

Or you could use the printer driver in windows to print in draft mode.

Are you sure there have only been 3000 copies? You can always print off a configuration page which will give you the total number of pages printed each time you put in a new toner and work out "your " average usage or even the average cost per page.

43,000 copies/bottle (based on 5% coverage). For the extremely low cost per page of toner usage, why bother with toner save - you lose substantial quality
