It started a long time ago and is getting worse and worse. I connected the printer to my xp pc using a usb cable. Every now and then when I tried to print, it would not print. I would have to pull the usb cable from my computer and plug it back in and it would start printing. Sometimes I had to power the printer off and back on. Normally only once but sometimes twice.
Recently I changed to a network cable and setup my pcs to access the printer through the nextwork. Same results. Sometimes pulling the network cable and plugging it back in would work. Other times I have to power off the printer and power it back on.
If you are printing PDF files, that could cuase this problem. Otherwise, if your getting the issue from two different computers its possably a fualt with the Printer.
If it is a printer fualt, there proberly isnt alot you can do with this issue. You may be able to update the firmware.

Hi, the CL2000 has a hard disk drive, mounted on the controller board, where image data is stored temporarily. If you're worried about sensitive data, it's a good idea to have a technician remove the hard drive before you give the printer away.
It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.
It really sounds like you either have to reload the driver, or select a differnt driver from the Richo web site.
Often times the driver will corrupt or simply be a poor match up for the system.
I would delete the priter from the printer consol on your computer, would be in control panel under printers and faxes. And reinstall. And again, try between a PS and PCL driver for the most compatible one.
I found that if you disconnect the usb momentarily for any reason the printer will immediately send out a jamming signal over usb regardless of whether on or off and the power button, (this jams whatever computer I plug the usb into after) only solution is pull power cord (or unplug) on the printer and replace whereupon it works ok then.
I'm not sure how to obtain one, but "Black PCU" stands for Black Photoconductor Unit, and according to a manual for a different Ricoh printer model, it should be fairly simple to replace if you can find one.
