Is it only when you use the top feeder? Check by placing an original on the glass and copying if the same fault then there are three possibilities

  1. Optics Dirty (Dust on the copying mirrors) Remove glass and clean the mirrors on the scan unit also remove the lens cover and clean the mirrors under there replace lens cover clean glass and refit. (Do Not remove any mirrors you can clean them in there place and use a glass cleaning solution)
  2. Toner Waste and drum cleaning unit full. Open front cover and split machine as to remove jam not touching the drum (Large Cylinder ) check there is no banding on there. IF so to the left of drum there is a unit that contains the cleaning blade and fills with waste toner remove vacuum out waste toner check that cleaning blade ok and reinstall. Close and check machine if ok then great if not could be fault number 3 or that the cleaning blade is worn and need replacing.
  3. The fuser section (Heat section) While the machine is split look at the bottom left you will see a Orange unit this is the fuser section that houses the heat roller which welds the toner to the page. Check that the top roller is OK that there is no toner stuck on it and the Teflon coating is even. If not then the fuser will need replacing and as you said that you are missing text the most likely faults are going to be the fuser or the drum or the drum cleaning blade.
I hope this helps you
Thanks J

Did you run the copier with out adding toner for awhile? If so, it is going to have to catch up with the toner level it had before or it may need a developer change. The toner level may be to low to regain it's amout of toner again. It may be a coastly venture with running the copier with out toner.. Good Luck...

SOURCE: On a Ricoh FT 4415 copier, what does error ''E2'' mean?

Hello,Check out this site and see if any of these error codes can help you:
Have you checked the power fuse? Or have you looked at the incoming power circuit board. Could there be any burnt resistors, blown capacitors, or bad voltage transformers?
Check things out because many times when a machine doesn't even power on (no lights, no life) - it's usually a sign of something blown - fuses, circuit board, lamps, etc. Hope this helps.

Hi. I have a ricoh ft 4615. Heating is ok, gears moves as normal, each n every function is working but the print page is blank and displays U6. What might be the problem?

Try this:
Turn off the auto density
Go to manual density and adjust to the middle 50%
Try to run again and check your results
If none - you have to clean all the optics
Try again - if you don't get results there is a possible problem with the lamp/scanner system which usually requires someone making adjustments to one of the control boards.
Which brings you to contacting Ricoh for support - they are usually pretty good helping over the phone.

Ft 4415 ricoh flahing the magnigication indicator display

That means the machine is due for preventive maintenence, or PM. There is an internal counter that keeps track of the number of copies made. At a preset count, this indicator flashes. Kind of like "it's time for an oil change"
