Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier
The OPC is factory rated at 120,000 and developer at 200,000 copies. I own a copier company and for (29 years) have repaired all brands and models and still repair this 450 model. I have seen the 450 drum go to 200,000, anytime the OPC is replaced I always replace the developer, and drum blade is a must also. The 1045 aficio is the model that followed the 450 and is an upgraded duplicate. Toner leaks are the biggest pain i find inside the front door cover, but its overall, a well built workhorse and i have seen meters as high as 800k and 900k still running.today. I overhaul these Ricoh units and resell them with a year warranty, and if they werent tanks, then I would get killed on the 1 year parts warranty I give.

How many copies does it show on the counter. (user tools-counter) More than 600,000....stock up on the Advil.
Use the correct supplies from Ricoh, not some other stuff and it should run pretty well for you. Upper fuser roller wear and jams are the most common problem.
