Please make sure you are positioning the page to be copied on the scanner bed correctly. There is usually one corner of the scanner where you should place the page.

Most scanners mark the "home" corner with either some obvious tic marks or even painted arrows.

How to print a config page on a Ricoh printer


On Ricoh printers, the configuration page (also called the Config page) is an information page that can be printed out with detailed data about the machine's status. The Config page shows the printer's copy count, various network settings, and current firmware versions, among other things. One nice feature of the Config page (on most printer models) is that it shows how much toner is left in the cartridge or bottle, so you can find out if you'll need to order more soon.

Follow the steps below to print a Config page from a stand-alone Ricoh printer.

A. Turn the printer on and wait for it to warm up.

B. Press the Menu button.

C. Scroll through the list of submenus using the up and down arrow keys until you see List/Test Print, then hit the OK button.

D. Look for the Config Page option, and hit OK again.

The configuration page will print out, and depending on that specific printer, it might be two pages rather than one. Whether the printer is black and white or color, the configuration page will be printed in black and white. If you want to print a test page in color, scroll further down the List/Test Print menu and you should see something called the Color Demo page.

To print a Config page from a multifunction Ricoh printer (one that scans and copies as well as prints), the steps are similar, but some of the machine's buttons are different. Multifunction printers typically don't have the Menu button, so you would press User Tools instead and then go to Printer Features. From there, the process is pretty much the same as described above.

Unable to cop


You can not use the copy feature if your printer is "printing". You can scan while other is printing simply because scanning is not using the printer's print heads. Therefore if you are printing, you can not copy at the same time.

Is your printer printing OK? So you should be able to copy as well. Press COPY button when the printer is ready. Basically, you have the Copy (Black) and Copy Color options. If you have 1 option only, pressing COPY makes you choose black or COlor using the keypad selector. Just choose any option and press OK or START.

How do I set my 5550n printer to print only black and white copies and color on demand?


If you go into control panel then go printer options you should see your printer icon. Right click on it and go printer preferences or printer properties and I think there is a colour tab where you can set it to just back and white

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page


I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.

Printer turning page blue


Color copiers have four drums. black, yellow, cyan(blue) and magenta. try making a copy in single color mode. make one in all the colors mentioned above. If they all come out normal and the cyan (blue) one doesnt, this could indicate a bad cyan (blue) pcu and or developer.

Photocopying


According to " HP Officejet R, PSC 500 and Color Copier - General Copying Issues and Solutions", under the problem heading "Black is not Black", notes that:

"The unit will perform mono (or black) copies using the color cartridge to create a composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades. NOTE: The HP PSC 500 all-in-one product cannot perform black copies. Scan the image in and print it out in greyscale.

The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Run a self-test page to verify that all the colors are there. Replace the cartridge if they are not."

In other words, the device only uses the black ink cartridge when used as a computer printer. When used as a stand-alone copier, it uses the color ink cartridge, and all three ink colors must be present and working to give a black and white copy. Perhaps you can refill the color cartridge with black ink in all chambers?
