That dust would be toner and can be replenished by replacing the toner cartridge(s). A common part number for the black toner is 888636, with some found here:

How to empty ricoh mp171 waste toner


Ricoh MP171 does not have a waste toner container. It recycles used toner back in the developer unit - where it is mixed with new toner and developer powder, and can be used for printing again.

Loud toner error


The machine does not use the toner directly from the bottle, it goes thorught a developer chamber filled with developer powder. Then the toner is charged and can "jump" over to the latent image of the drum.
In this developer chamber, there are some small gears (2-3 tiny gears) that may be worn out. Some developer may have entered the "gearbox", and the deveoper powder is very abrasive.
The teeth of the gears will eventually stop to contact and mesh up. The internal parts of the developer changer stops to revolve, and there is no toner mixed with the developer.
You can see that there is a build up of toner, but it does not enter the developer unit. These gears have to be replaced, and I allways change the developer powder at the same time.



mp 2000 developer gears-2rhlv5r3sdqqpeuzs0ozcjtp-5-0.jpg These gears must be replaced it they are worn. The image shows a brand new part that contains the gears.



mp2000 developer toner input side-2rhlv5r3sdqqpeuzs0ozcjtp-5-1.jpg This is the side of the developer unit where toner enters the developer unit. With defective gears, the developer unit can not pull toner inside of the unit, and the toner builds up in front of the unit.

The gears are cheap, but will often result in the need of new developer powder - and that is expensive.
If print quality does not have to be too good, one can use the old powder and save money. Some of the powder is lost during use, and leaks. There may be some dust in the developer too.
In order to get high quality several parts may need to be replaced.

It is quick and easy to change these gears, just a bit dirty job.

How do i fix problem Add Toner


The Ricoh has toner and developer. When the developer is depleted it can not get to the right density when toner is added so the machine keeps saying to add toner. You need to clean out the developer unit and put in new developer. Depending upon your model you may need to install a drum and blade too. Ricoh technicians are trained to dissemble the unit and just replace the parts needed instead of getting a whole drum/developer unit. If you live in Southeast Florida Advanced business computers is a great source for help. Computer network repair, printer and copier maintenance repairs, leasing and supplies.

Empty Developer on MP1900


Should replace the TYPE 28 DEVELOPER every 60,000 pages.... this is needed to mix with the toner. if you cleaned the toner/ developer mix out of the developer already then it will definatly give you blank pages ..... hopefully this helps.

I have a Ricoh aficio 2018D problem is SC390 Code i reples PCU Unit Lower unit/Drum & Developer but sc390 code problem not solw. Please help Me.


The TD sensor is reading an abnormal value, this could happen if no toner is getting into the developer unit or it could be a bad TD connection or TD failure. Would suggest checking to see if the toner supply path is working first.

Check that the toner bottle is empty and most of the toner in the development unit is depleted.Add a new bottle of toner, run a forced toner until it looks good, then run td initialization.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Were does the developer go. Inside the Developer MOdule? in a certain place? Or does it get put into the toner container?


The developer is not a toner. It goes in the developer unit, it is installed by a service rep. You need to empty out the used developer & install the new bag of developer & rest the counter & set the developer up to add toner when needed. To make a long story on developer short > it is made up of iron filings & it holds the toner on the developer make roller to make a even coat of toner on your paper... Good Luck..... Just to let you know your copier is a Ricoh and it is a dul component copier
