Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D Copier
I need to change the developer for an Aficio 1018 - need instructions.
Open the front and right covers and remove the toner bottle holder unit.
Pull out the Photoconductor unit(PCU) with your thumb pressing on the latch on the left side of the PCU.
Separate the top part from(drum) the bottom part(developer unit), by removing the front piece 1 screw and rear piece 2 screws and 1 coupling(pull out).
Now remove 1 front screw, 2 rear screws and other 2 top rear screws to separate the top and bottom parts of the dev. unit.
Then place your finger under the front-side and rear-side flaps and push out so that the flaps pops off the peg.
Set the coupling removed, back to the shaft and turn the coupling to remove the developer from the roller.
Turn upside down the lower part of the dev. unit to remove all the developer by turning its gears.
Load new developer evenly in the openings of the lower dev. unit and pay attention not to spill developer on the gears.
Reassemble the whole PCU properly.
Reinstall back the PCU and toner unit and close the front and right covers.
Switch on the machine, enter SP mode- Clear key, 107, hold and press Stop key.
Enter SP 2-214 and execute to reinitialize the TD sensor.
Switch off and on the machine.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
