Ricoh FT7650 Printing LIghtly - Developer Problem?

Hello we have a  Ricoh FT7650 and it's print outs are extremely light.  We put a new toner in, cleaned the glass, and cleaned the drum but it is EXACTLY the same.  After reading up on it some I assume it is probably the Developer that has gone in it and we need to add more.  I've already purcahsed some for our machine from precisionrollers.com.  BUT I have no idea how to add it to the machine.  I've looked in it but can't seem to figure it out and obviously it isn't it the manual:)  I do have the code to get into the operating controls to reset the developer and calibrate it but I just do not know how to add it.  If someone could please help me I would greatly appreciate it!  Thank you!!

    I do know how to take the toner hopper out - I started to the other day but I thought I should find out for sure first before doing that:)

    I'll check the service guide tomorrow to see how to do it. Usually it goes in behind the toner hopper. Do you know how to take the toner hopper out?

It isn't a broken corona wire. If that was the case, it wouldn't copy at all and you would have a few error codes as well along with a few sparks.

    I went onto copytechnet.com to see how to remove it. We didn't have that particular service manual in the shop. They give free advice on there and it's only used by other copier technicians.

Hello I'm in Brazil can not resolve error in my SC990 Ricoh Aficio 2045eSP. This error pops up after 10 copies or printing. Already exchanged cylinder, blade, developer and toner new. Please help me.


Why change the drum, blade, developer ????? You had problems with print quality?? I think it was just spending money ....
You have a network problem or machine firmware. To remove the doubts plug a laptop directly to the machine with a cable (Not necessary a croos cable). This may be a virus network or a broken swith.

Good luck

My ricoh aficio 350e printer has a brand new cartridge but it still printing with light dark area's where words should be solid. This is only on the black color.


The pcu, charge roller and possibly the developer needs to be replaced. Also, the glass on the laser unit could be dirty with toner - ck this first.

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.
