Question about Ricoh Aficio IS420 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Ricoh IS420 is not evenly scanning text pages - light side edges not do to obvious cleaning, what next? If I switch to custom resolution and manually adjust contrast, can get text but also blackens edges. Original are clear laser printed pages of legal documents. It seems to be something is going bad, do not have a clue what it is, how to check or if there is internal adjustments I can try. I have cleaned light, mirror and glass and everything else obvious and not so obvious. What next?

MY RICOH 2020D PRINTER, IS VERY SLOW AND IT DOES NOT SCANNED AT 20PPM, PLUS THE FAX MEMORY ONLY HOLDS UP 40 PAGES, WHAT CAN I DO?


You must have your resolutions set much higher than the default.
Scanner: Go to "user tools", "Scanner features", "scan Settings", "default Scan settings", "resolution".....set to 200dpi

Fax: Resolution may be set to "detail" or "fine" by default , rather than "Standard" ...is either light lit?
This would dramatically reduce memory capacity.
To set this to default standard resolution is a needlessly difficult task. You can either manually turn it off when sending a fax or change the default "user parameter settings" for the "home position". You can find instructions in the Fax manual (Advanced settings). Download here:

How to set parameters and understand them (sort of ) is on page 80
How to set home position is on page 86

Dark area on scanner output


you need a new CIS array, or the lamp is going bad. With all due respect buying office equipment on ebay is like shooting craps.
