Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D Copier

2 Answers

Copier will not sort documents correctly

I just purchased a used Ricoh 1018D and it works great except for one problem. When I select "sort" the light indicator shows it is selected. However, everytime the document is fed through the ADF with the sort selected, the machine stops after one copy is prouced and the "out of paper" indicator lights up for the paper drawer. If I feed the document through the ADF for multiple copies without selecting "sort", it produces the correct amount of copies from the paper tray without sorting. In this case, there is not out of paper indication and everything works fine. I would appreciate some guidance with diagnostics and/or a part replacement recommendation. Thanks in advance.

Hi songman to sort you need to have the A4 paper in both cassettes one cassette needs to be A4 portrait(wide edge first) and the other needs to be landscape (short edge first)make sure you have the green paper size selector set correctly as well regards Dr Bob1

Can MAC OSX 10.5.x use Ricoh Aficio 1018D? Do you now alternativ drivers for ricoh aficio 1018D. HP LaserJet 5-Gutenprint v5.1.3 is o.k. for A4 but not for A3

this is an older model copier, however try going to and click downloads then drivers. there will be a tab for drivers, this is 10.5 though not snow leopard. Ricoh/Savin/gestetner and Lanier are all the same copier, but savin site has more mac info than Ricoh site. Usually I have better luck using already installed Mac drivers than Gutenprint, if you type in the ip it should give you a list of preinstalled Mac drivers. I believe the Ricoh 1018 corresponds to a Savin 2518 if that helps. Also use print daemon, not ipp. hope this helps somewhat as Macs are difficult with options and such on most printers. also must use PS3 for best results.
