Question about Ricoh Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

RICOH MP3500 I have a MP3500 and just purcahsed a toner - the copier is brand new. I put the toner in and I'm getting blank pages when I try to copy a page. I pulled out the fuser unit (green type paper on it) and there is no trace of toner on it. The unit that the toner goes into with the long metal roller is getting toner. So I don't know what the problem could be? Maybe a bad fuser? But the unit is brand new.

DX-3443 ink is not supply to drum


You copier does not use ink, but toner. And because the "ink" detector is on, it could be the toner cartridge is empty.
Try to remove the toner cartridge and shake it firmly. than replace it. This could help for a few copies, but you must order new toner, if the sheets of paper keep coming up blank.

I cannot make more than one copy when I place the original on the glass of the Ricoh aficio mp3500 copier


To make multiple copies, put your original on the glass, press the number key for the number of copies you want, and hit the green Start button. If you have Sort, Stack, Staple, or Duplex selected (or if they are selected by default), you'll have to press # to tell the machine that you don't want to copy other originals as well.

Ricoh Aficio 1022 Toner Bleeds


I ended up taking out the toner bottle completely and just running copies (with no toner in place) until they came out crisp. This used up the toner that was floating around. I was able to make about 700 copies before I needed to put the toner back in. But a **** of paper is still much cheaper than getting a service tech.

Copies are half printed and half almost not printed (very lite)


If the copy count is around 150,000 or higher and you haven't replaced the developer as well, it should be replaced. That symptom can cause light copies if it hasn't been replaced every 150,000 cycles.

Patchy Prints


I believe that the Heat roller in the Fuser has a build up of toner on it(in some areas) and as a result is not fully fusing the toner into the paper. when you use a thick setting you are actually slowing the speed down to allow more heat to the toner. the thicker paper causes more pressure allowing the toner to fuse properly. I would say you need a new Heat roller and possibley a pressure roller. You could try running 20 copies of a blank white page. Sometimes this will help. Poor fusing can also cause a previous image to come up on the next page or repeat itself down the page. A service call is in order if this does not work.

Hope this helps

Toner lines when I print


I don't think it is anything to do with the toner cartridge as this doesn't put the toner on the page seems to me that the drum unit is faulty either the cleaning blade has failed or the charge roller. Best thing to do is call a service engineer or copier company that deal with Richo or Rex Rotary.

Thanks J
