SOURCE: The colour settings are not right on my Ricoh

On the CL7100, you can run the color calibration procedure, and the machine should set itself up for optimum color. Just go into the menu, and under the Maintenance heading choose Color Calibration.

Is the color still off after running the calibration? Is it only one specific color, or all colors? What about when you only print black & white?

The image density should typically be left at the default values for optimum print quality. However, if you need to adjust it, you can go from -3 to 3. In the menu, go to the Maintenance category and then choose Image Density and then the color that you want to change. Adjust the value and press Enter, then run a test copy to see if it helps at all. If not, reset it back to the value that it was (probably 0).

If only one color is giving you a problem, even after running the color calibration, you might need to replace the developer unit for that color.

Are the lines dark or light? You can try replacing the toner to see if that clears it up.

Also, go into the user options -- if you see a setting for something like "toner save mode" turn it off. That can cause poor copy quality and is sometimes turned on by default.

SOURCE: my Ricoh Aficio SPC811DN printer keeps asking me

The PCU is the drum unit. There is one for each colour (C,M,Y & K). Each PCU has a 'life' and the machine will ask you to replace it when it has reached the end of its expected life. The PCU life has nothing to do with the amount of toner that you have in the cartridges and they need to be changed independantly.

SOURCE: I have a Ricoh 2238c. Are the drum units different

All four drum units on the 2238C are identical (part #B1909510). Each drum unit can be used for any of the colors.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Color registration

In user tools there is a maintance button press and then try color reg adjustment. If it doesn't sink color back in alignment it will say fail will need to call a tech . Could be anything from transfer unit bar that is shiny usually toward exit side cake with toner to laser failure

My printer is printing back to front. Have I pressed a wrong button or is there a problem with my printer?

This is usually a setting in the printer driver. Open your Printers and Faxes from the Start menu (Windows XP), right click on your printer and choose properties. Look in the tabs for printing preferences and then look in there for reverse print (or something similar) then deselect the option. If it is already deselected, it could be the application you're using has set up settings for the printer associated with it. In this case, you would check for the same thing from within the application that is causing the issue before you print.

Won't turn on....

Have you recently replaced the colour PCU? It may not be seated properly, otherwise there is likely a problem with it, and it's not turning (ie: a broken gear). It could also be the PCU drive motor, or control board. Sounds like you may need a tech to get to the root cause unless you have a spare PCU to try?? This also explains the colour registration problem.

Colour and black and white

Colors registration need to be adjusted. It's a long procedure to describe. But if you are close to PA or NJ can do it for you.
