You will probably need to get it serviced by a technician. However, if you need to just get by, a possible solution may be to print each side individually. This could also be faster than using the duplexor on the machine. Hope this helps.

How do we get this machine (ricoh aficio MP 2000) to duplex print?


There are certain models that can duplex and certain models that can't. Generally if a Ricoh copier can duplex it has a D after the name (like 2018D). If there is no option for duplexing on the screen or the ops panel, that model doesn't support duplexing.

Ricoh AP3800C "Output tray full"


Check the little black piece of plastic that senses the printed page exiting the machine. Our sensor was stuck and I was getting the same message (an similar Ricoh product). When I gently reset the black piece to center, moving freely, printing worked again. I think the sensor got jammed up when we were trying to remove a bad paper misfeed.

Ricoh manuals very confusing on this error message. They refer to standard tray, tray one, etc. without being clear whether it's a paper feed tray or the so-called "standard OUTPUT tray." The output is not really a tray, it's just the depression where your sheet lands after printing. I wrenched on the paper feed trays and their settings for an hour before I figured out they meant OUTPUT.

Entering the Service Mode
There are two ways to enter the service mode.
Method 1: Turn the machine on while pressing the “On Line” key and “Escape” key
together until the above message in the illustration appears on the display.
NOTE: If you switch the machine off, any jobs stored on the hard disk using the
sample print and locked print features will be deleted.
Check first with the user tools to see if there are any jobs stored with these
features
(Menu key - Sample Print, or Protected Print).
