    Check with They carry Gestetner Parts. It's a Ricoh machine so you can order it that way.

It always jam in the bypass when feeding long even though the print is already out of the fusing unit.

is the paper size correct? example bypass paper size is 8 1/2 x 13 or 8 1/2 x 14for long size. setting this to your bypass tray will tell the machine that the paper on your bypass is long.

We've loaded a new ink cartridge, but the printer doesn't recognize it. The model is a 3222

You have a very old machine...
Assuming that you are putting the right bottle... It could be several problems.
Faulty clutch.. faulty toner supply unit... faulty drum Unit...
The best advise i could give to you is to call a technician...
See you

How much is gestetner 3222 worth

This machine is made by Ricoh and the same as a model Aficio 220. Pretty old and not worth much. If it runs and makes nice copies then $300 to $400. If it does not work or makes poor copies then next to nothing. I specialize in buying/selling used refurbished copiers and am very familiar with this model.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Can't select 'Bypass Tray' as a print option.

That's strange. I just downloaded it to see what might need to be done, and the bypass tray was available, and it's a standard feature, so it doesn't have to be manually added or anything. I, however, used the Ricoh driver which is identical, because Ricoh owns Gestetner (in case you didn't know) so you may try installing that one. maybe it's a glitch in the Gestetner driver package. The comparable model is Ricoh AP 4510, and you can get it here. I hope this helps:

Only prints half the page

Well, I'm back to suggest another solution or 2.
After my previous solutions didn't take (we have to start with the most basic solutions, especially when i can't see the results), let's try something else.
At this point it sounds to me like a laser (optical) problem or blockage.
LIft the green handle inside the front cover as if to replace the toner bottle, and underneath you should see the end of a small peice of glass protruding. CAREFULLY slide this out. My suspicion is that there will be a film of toner, or dust built up (particularly on one end of it). Clean it with a soft tissue and slide it back in.
If this glass is not present, but you see the slot, then it has been removed, and I would then suggest that the toner/dust has carried all the way into the laser unit, and the assembly will need to be removed and cleaned -this is not something for the end user to perform.
Regardless of whether or not this solution fixes the problem, you will have arrived at a place where a technician will be required, because it has been narraoweed down to either a Drum (photoconductor) problem, transfer assembly problem, or perhaps a laser positioning problem....but I do hope it helps.

Copier Only prints half the page

Sounds to me that the paper tray is set incorrectly. There is a dial on the back of the machine that needs to be set correctly once the paper tray guides are adjusted accordingly -particularly when running 8 1/2 x 11" (letter) size paper. It can be set to run either lengthwise, or laterally (portrait) make sure the dial is set to the proper setting on ALL trays. If the tray is set for lateral, for example, and the paper is installed lengthwise, the scanner only utilizes 8 1/2" in length rather than the full 11". Frequent jamming is also a common problem when making multiple copies, because the paper is not where the machine "expects" it to be. Also check that the LCD display reads the proper size / orientation after adjustment.

Hope this helps. Please rate solution :)

Gestetner 3222

When you put a new cartridge in I take it you have removed the black cap that sits on top of the toner bottle (if you haven't remove it) The machine as default allows a 15 second gap from when you open the door and put the cartridge in to when you close the door. If you are too fast at changing toner open the door wait 15-20 seconds then close the door . Machine will then show on the control panel that toner is loading. If this does not work repeat two more times if still does not work then the drum unit (Photo Conductor Unit) is not accepting toner you will have to replace it.

Hope this works
