SOURCE: Error Message: Replace Black PCU

I'm not sure how to obtain one, but "Black PCU" stands for Black Photoconductor Unit, and according to a manual for a different Ricoh printer model, it should be fairly simple to replace if you can find one.

SOURCE: Waste Toner Light won't go off?

The waste toner is usually a bottle near the toner cartridge which collects excess toner powder from the cartridge. It is usually present in more heavy duty laser printers, not all printers have them as a replaceable supply. You would need to refer to your manual for replacement instructions, they vary from printer model. For this machine, the Waste Toner supply number is #420131. In the case of the first poster, my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at a repair centre.

SOURCE: Ricoh CL3000 Laser Replace Waste toner

Couple of things to try: - If you just emptied the waste cartridge then you have to take the bottle back out and clean the insides as well. The sensor sees the toner on the walls and still thinks it?s full. FYI as typical the manufacturer recommends replacing the bottle with a brand new one. - If not that then you may have toner covering the optical sensor. Try blowing the area where the waste bottle attaches to the printer with canned air. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

SOURCE: We removed the waste toner bottle and it won't reset the error message

You will need to vacuum all the toner out as in the machine there is a sensor that looks through the waste tank and checks that it is clear. You can also wash the tank out then install it and you will not have the problem.

Thanks J

SOURCE: Add Black Toner Msg.

Thanks Ricohman for the suggestion. Toner was original Ricoh cartridge and reinstalling it didn't help. I decided to tear the machine apart and discovered the auger for the black toner was stuck. I removed the auger, cleaned everything up and put the machine back together. Works great now.

Please follow the steps to replace the toner cartridge on the attached link: http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi_view/0001037/0001037078/view/hardware/unv/0084.htm

If the message Replace Print Cartridge remains, it means that it is not the correct toner cartridge, replace it with the correct one. If Reset Print Cartridge message appears after correct replacement, it means that the toner cartridge is not set correctly or not installed. Set the toner cartridge correctly. If the cartridge is installed, close the front cover and turn the power switch to off and to on. If the message appears again, contact your sales or service representative.

THE 942.02 Service Yellow TMC Sens message is in the screen. What does it mean. It will not let me print


Error indicates a problem with the Cyan toner cartridge/developer. Try the following steps:
Power off the printer/MFP and open the toner access door. Reseat all of the toner cartridges. Power on the printer/MFP again and print a test page. Did the error message return? Power off the printer/MFP and remove the developer unit for the color specified in the error message, and then reseat it. Try printing another test page, verify if you're still getting the same error. It is possible that specified color's toner cartridge and developer unit are defective. If you have a replacement toner cartridge and developer, install them as a test and print a trial page.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.
