You may want to consider putting developer into the unit. What is the copy count on the machine?

    The developer needs to be replaced every 125,000 cycles in your copier. Once you replaced this, your copy quality should be corrected.

    Try precision I use them. I'll have to give you the initialize codes once you get some.

    Make sure you remove all of the old developer out of the unit and vacuum the mag roller.

    Yes. You evenly put it into the unit. Then there are a few service codes to run to calibrate the new developer.

    Press the yellow button, press 1 0 7, press the clear button. Search the service menu for developer intialization or developer calibration.

    It will take me some time to look up the specific service code if you don't see it by searching through the menus. Let me know if you don't see it.

Afficio450 replace new developer unit wat procedure to be follow?

No, the 450 is just one of those machines that seem to have PCQ no matter what you do. Given light copies, I'd replace the drum for sure and make sure your ID sensor isn't covered with toner. Dust covered optics will also cause light copies on this model.

Afficio 450 olridy change developer but the copy is stil faded

There are two service codes that you need to run 2801 and 2805 after you put the developer in the machine.

Press the yellow button on the copier. press 107 on the keyboard. Press and hold the clear button. Then run the service codes.

You have to run the codes first after changing the developer. You might have to replace the developer again to get the correct mixture.

Afficio 450 copy faded in some area...

If the image is good in parts, but light in others it is most often toner build up on the laser exposure glass which can be easily -but also VERY CAREFULLYremoved. If you lift the green handle for the toner bottle, you should see a narrow piece of glass protruding just underneath. You can grasp it with you fingers and slide it out for cleaning. Sometimes these have been removed (or broken) so they are not there. If the machine is also a printer, you should see much improvement (if this was the cause). If regular copying is still light in areas, then you may want to remove the copier glass - 2 screws on left scale, and 3 screws on rear scale (POWER OFF ON MACHINE), remove glass and clean with glass cleaner, then slide scanner to the left and clean the mirrors.
Hope this helps.

When developer goes bad you use more toner for one thing, but the main sign is a gray background in your copy. The print should be black but appears to be gray. The ricoh 350/450 was always noted to leak toner and developer as it runs. Check your machine and see if you see any small piles of toner, which also has developer in it, in the machine. Ther are small seals made of felt that need to be replaced if you have this problem. These seals rub against the drum sides....Good luck.
