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

Toner leaking and low quality copy


I would check the transferbelt/wastebox/cleaning unit to see if it is full or have a problem with cleaning.
If it is full it will make a soundt as some toner is forced out of the wastebox. I've seen a few examples of cleaning blades that does not clean smoothly too. When the blade moves toner scatters.
It it is full, empty the wastebox and change the cleanin blade.

If not, check the drum and the drum cleaning. I've had a "jumping" cleaning blade on the drum too, also resulting in toner scattering inside the machine. It that is the case, the blade must be changed.

In order to make this machine run kind of OK, you need to keep it super clean, change developer and other parts at least as often as Ricoh says in the service manual.
Make sure you have the latest firmware model, and the right toner.

It is a machine that runs dirty, and based on the POS Adonis series of machines from Ricoh.
For other viewers here, stay away from the Ricoh Aficio 350/450, 1035/45, 2035/45 and newer models like the MP 3500/4500.

You will notice companies that sell copiers from differente brands often have decided not to sell this model from Ricoh, and just choose a different make/brand as their machines (in this segment) are better.

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.
