You are using the wrong developer. Type 26 developer is for older models, like the 3045 and the 2045. The MP4500 uses a newer developer, part # B2969640. Not sure where you're getting the "4500E" toner from, but the toner should be type 4500A.

Empty out and clean the development unit, drum unit, and toner hopper, install the new DV and toner, run the developer initialization, and you should be okay.

It's probably happening because the cleaning blade on the drum needs to be changed or replaced.

    Did you run the calibration programs in service mode when you replaced the developer?

I have a problem with my photocopier RICOH MP 5002 despite replacing new drum new cleaner blade and new developer my copier still copy very faint copies what could be the problem


when you replaced the developer, did you clean the "mag roll" of baked on toner? Very common problem on this model. Of course you initialized the SP mode 2-801, and 2-805 right? -Carl

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.

I have A problem of SC990 in the ricoh aficio 2035/45 and also I get light copies and over tonning problem.


The light copies and overtoning is probably caused by the developer going bad. Do you have a service contract on your copier? It's likely time for a whole PM (preventive maintenance) procedure.

The sc990 is probably caused by the copier's condition as well. Once you have the PM done (or at least replace the developer, rebuild the photoconductor unit, and clean or rebuild the transfer unit) the sc990 codes should go away along with the poor copy quality.

Adding developer to the new ricoh aficio mp 1500


Are you a tech? I suspect not. You need to remove the drum unit, disassemble, separate the drum from the development unit. Remove cover of developer unit, add developer, reassemble, and run SP2214 to calibrate.
This is NOT a procedure to be performed by an end user...no disrespect intended.

Want to know toner yield for the Ricoh Aticio MP 6500


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
