Network problem with Aficio 1515f

Hi. Can you please tell me how to connect my printer via network to my laptop running vista ultimate? The printer doesnt have a USB port,but only a network port. I bought a router and installed it and the cables from laptop to router and from router to printer. The laptop just tells me that there is limited connectivity on the local network? Any idea how to fix this please?

Sounds like you have a wireless router, but are (for some reason) plugging your laptop into it, and if it's not wireless, you should return it and get a wireless one for about the same money, that will let you use your laptop from anywhere, and the setup is often easier, as it can usually all be done via the Installation CD. You can also still plug the Aficio 1515 into the router and print wirelessly to it from your laptop, once you have it configured.
Next, the Aficio 1515 printer feature included a standard usb port, so I find this a little strange.
You can download the manuals here:

The 'network settings' guide will be most helpful. The two things you primarily need to be concerned with are the "IP address", and "subnet mask". Do not use "Auto", but rather set them manually, and then configure the printer driver
If you don't have a basic understanding of IP addresses, and network printing, then you'll really need some help to complete the setup

8600 printer won't print. Only shows preparing printer on the screen. I have never used this. It's a refurbished machine.

Apparently not well refurbished. HP printers are pretty good about bugging you when Ink is low but I'd also check for gunk on the rollers that may have then sticking. The machine does check them but unlike with the ink you will get no "dirty" machine messages. It will just not ever be ready. Also, make sure you have no network printer software running if the printer is directly plugged it via the USB port. Only run that software if the printer is available via your local network. Simply stop such software and your printer will be available for local use again. I had to plug my HP printer directly into the new PC to install the drivers and have not moved it back to being connected to the router and the network printing software will interfere until I move it back.

Just bought a 1515f do l change copying preferences

Sounds like there is a preset reduction (R/E) programmed??? You can access the manuals here. The answers for your copier question should be in the "copy reference, in the "user tools" section
Manuals are all here:

Aficio 1515F, indicator error light

Thats' the general 'attention' light when basically anything goes wrong.
I've found some of these machines to be sensitive to the front/side cover may need adjusting, but if you make sure when you close the right side cover to press firmly at the top/ front of the panel (nearest you), as opposed to more towards the centre or back of the machine (which is the tendency) you may have more luck - that's where the interlock is....hopefully this helps

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side

If the print can be rubbed off then this suggests the fuser unit is not working correctly. It could be that the thermistor is covered with toner and making the machine think the fuser is hot enough when it's not.

The black line could also be caused by the fuser if one of the pick off fingers is coated with toner or has worn into the Teflon of the roller.

Does the machine show the lines when you print a page from memory - such as a counter or config page? If not, this would suggest the optical path is dirty. Try cleaning the glass and look at the mirrors inside the scanner to see if they are dirty/dusty.
