Question about Ricoh Aficio 1022 All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

I'm trying to copy an original 2 sided document. When I put the original in the document feeder it goes through but it doesn't turn the paper to get the other side and it doesn't print. It wants me to manually feed the other side. We purchased this used and I was told by the person who bought this that it does 2 to 2 sides. What am I doing wrong? I followed the steps in the manual and selected 2 sided for the original as well as for the copy. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

I suspect that the 'turn around gate" is not actuating. they mechanism can become dry and get stuck. Often a simple fix is to open the left cover of the feeder (feed in section), then lift up the top tray where you place the originals. You will see a black panel which is the "gate". Simply press on this and it will move down and the spring back up when released. That is often enough to free it up for the short-term; however you may need to do this after a period of non-use, as the solenoid that actuates it, bushings etc., are dry.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know, and rate solution

What sandmanmac said. the reason the gate got stuck on mine is because the little cushion pad actually got gummy and was holding the gate in place. I simply covered it with a piece of electrical tape. Problem solved.

Copying 8.5x8.5 original thru document feeder and it doesnt aal print

Most copier has an APS (Auto Paper Selection) as default, 8.5 x8.5 is a square original, I would suggest you manually select the paper tray (e.g. Letter) first (this will temporary disable the APS for this session), then lay it down on the original glass, or ADF (Auto Document Feeder).

If you do not disable APS, you will have paper jamming problem, you do not have 8.5 x8.5 is th paper tray, of course, you may try it feed from the by-pass tray, set the the paper size to 8.5 x8.5 or special size ....... Each manufacturer has a different name for the same function (terminology).

How do I clean document feeder? It is putting

If it is just puting lines on the copies ONLY when using the feeder here is all you need to do to clean that thoroughly.
Get a phillips screw driver. Lift the document feeder, you will see the "seal glass" about 1 inch wide on the left side. Remove the 2 silver screws, One on each end. Lift that glass up and out. Lay it on a white piece of paper. Take some alcohol and a regular piece of copy paper and clean that until you see nothing on that glass by placing it against the white paper. Get every little speck off. Then put the glass back in.
If you want to clean the entire scanner that is a different procedure all together. Let me know .

How to make duplex copies from toshiba e-studio202L

I am going to assume you have a document feeder (ADF) on the copier.
Insert originals into document feeder and press the 1-1 simplex button on the LCD screen. If have single page documents that you want to turn into double sided documents then select 1 - 2 button. If you have double sided originals already and want to make double sided copies then select 2 - 2 button. Then hit the green copy start key...done.

Lines on my copies

As the page you wish to copy goes through the document feeder, it passes the scanner as well as a white plastic band that the scanner "compares" the dark writing or data on the page to. If this white plastic band is not very clean, the scanner reads the dirt as if it is part of the image you are scanning. Try cleaning the band as thoroughly as possible, as well as the small piece of glass to the left of the larger glass on the flat bed scanner. Make another copy to test your results.

Hope this helps!

Keeps asking to load original in document feeder

This has a happy ending. But first, the obligatory narrative:
The HP site has advice on how to deal with a document feeder that doesn't detect your document. It doesn't talk about the opposite problem, which is what molecular is describing. I had the identical problem yesterday. I'd place the original on the glass and it kept demanding that I put the original in the feeder. So I got into a chat session with the HP technician. Her advice, (based on the possibility that a power surge had created the problem) unplug from everything, restart, and retry. The problem persisted. I told her so. She broke the connection. Nice.
So here is how I fixed it. Using the Setup button>Tools>3. Restore factory defaults, I returned the device to its factory settings. I put the original on the glass and it made the copy without a problem.
Here is a pure speculation. There are at least two ways to enter settings related to two-sided copying. I had used one to enter the settings (two-sided original to two-sided copy, as it happens) and later tried to use another button to change those settings. I noticed the 2-sided settings did not change. I believe the feeder is the default for two-sided copying. So when the system failed to clear the settings, it failed to clear the default. Once I returned all settings to the factory originals, the problem disappeared.
