Ricoh Aficio 5000L Fax Printer-Adding names to Group name

I work for a company that has a Ricoh Aficio 5000L Fax Printer. We currently have a customer database that we can e-mail fax information to our clients. We need to make changes in our Groups from time to time, since our customers do have personnel changes. I have read the manual and cannot find the exact item that covers this problem. I can edit the group and delete all the names in that particular group, which I do not want to do. I would like to add names to a group. Since the person who was trained for our company on this machine is no longer here, we need someone that is able to do this, and I was asked to do it. Again, I need to add names (e-mails) to an established group, and need to know step-by-step how to accomplish this task. Thank You

On every fax i've worked on, you cannot edit groups. You have to delete the group and start over.

Aficio 5000L will not receive most faxes.

That is a problem with your phone service. Your fax machine does not care where the fax comes from.

Richo Aficio 5000L Fax - Fax Operation not working !!!!!!!

First, determine whether the telephone line is working properly. Remove the telephone line from the machine and replace with a test handset. Try calling the fax number and see if you get fax tones on the handset. If not, there is a problem with line switching. If you do get fax tones, then the machine is at fault. Now plug the line cord into the machine, check that it is in the correct input jack, as there may be unmarked jacks open on this machine. Check the display and see that it is ready.Is the machine trying to communicate with another fax number? If so, change the service station fax number to a machine that is close by.(User Tools 2 then immediately 1998 start within 3 secs. then 13 and change the number.) Try to send or receive a fax and observe there is or not 3 sheets of data sent to the machine you just programmed as the service machine.So then, is the machine configured with 1 or 2 modems? Determine that the problem happens with both modems. If so, the modem is not suspect. Now let me stress this, that if you are not a qualified Ricoh technician, do not attempt any further checks yourself.
Next, do a complete level 3 reset. Remember that the machine may be configured with a feature upgrade card which may contain 999 additional speed dial numbers. Do not remove this card yet. However, repeat the receive checks with the memory card removed. If there is no Feature upgrade card or a fax on demand card in the left hand slot, then check the contents of system switch 16. If this is set to 1. If so, then the machine will not work unless a ic or data copy tool is present in the slot. Repeat the tests. Power off and remove the memory card and the feature upgrade card. Power on. Set System switch 16 to 0 and repeat the tests.
Theres more tests, but I don't have the space to go through them all, the manual is 300 pages.

Adding and deleting into and out of group phone list

Group setting where? In the driver? In the menu in the machine? In some piece of software?
Are you refering to the name and phone number people see when you fax them?

Please be more specific.

Changing the name and phone number for faxing operations is covered in the owners manual. If you can't find the manual, there should be a copy on Brother's Web Site at

Ricoh Aficio fax 5000L (error code & Factory Settings?)

HI there below is the reason for your error message and it is to do with the laser unit and will normally need to be replaced when this message comes up.

Hexagonal mirror motor startup error 3-31

You could try resetting it by the following
· Try to clear the service call condition (for failures which are not related to the
fusing unit): switch the power off, wait 10 seconds, then switch back on.

I take it you have already tried this but if this doesn't work then the unit will need replacing

Thanks J
