Question about Ricoh Aficio 250 Copier

2 Answers

Making copies of its own accord and says it is receiving a file ??

The photocopier is copying on its own. Even when the switch is off. You can only stop in by unplugging it from the power point. When the page comes out it has characters on it that are like computer language . We have noticed that there is a yellow symbol illuminated on the top left hand panel next to the words receiving file.

I agree with techbill, except its possible that if you just got it, there could be print jobs in memory and it will have to print them, unless you can go into print menu and deleted pending print jobs. also note the main power switch is on the left rear side, half way down.

Sounds like you have your copier connected as a printer also. If so, someone has sent a print job to it using the wrong driver. Check the print ques to everyone connected & delete the print jobs. Delete all print jobs from the copier as well. The other solution is to disconnect the print cable from the machine & let it print the job it has in storage. The problem with that solution is that a 2 page document can turn into a 200 page document when the wrong driver/printer has been selected. Good Luck!!

To be eligible for an Australian passport the Australian Passport Office must be satisfied that you are an Australian citizen, and must receive confirmation of your identity. Accordingly, when you apply for an Australian passport you will need to provide original documents which confirm your Australian citizenship and your identity. Please note that birth extracts, commemorative certificates, photocopies and fax copies are NOT acceptable.

Outgoing fax was received as blank


Make sure that you sent the fax face down.
If all your faxes are sent blank, there may be a problem with the scanner. Try making a photo copy placing the page face down, if your copy comes out blank then the scanner is finished.

If your photocopy does not come out blank then the problem is on the other end and not your machine.
