Re: service call 901

It is asking you to install your mechanical counter,which you plug into a socket located on the outside of the copier. If you do not have this option then check fuse labeled #6 on your power supply.

Keeps showing follow instrctns in right cover to remove. Unable to copy

ther is a paper jam in the machine, open the side cover and remove the paper jam, if the paper is not visible then there is a small piece stuck somewhere.

RICOH 2015 error code sc 500

Main motor/ transport motor lock/ fusting motor error.

The only thing you can do is check for any obstructions in the machine.

That needs to be looked at by a service because the problem could be a motor, a pcb, or a power supply.

It can be a lot of troubleshooting to do.

Print quality

Ghosting can :
1-prints on the fuser roller, check if yes try cleaning it off, wait until it cools off

2-blanking lamps dirty or not working,(deletes image off the drum, before it gets ready to accept a new one)

BL mirror-(new image)
\ /

3-Bad drum (although I doubt it this far in the process.)

Light and broken printout and black mark on the backside

Have the service people set the machine to add toner(per pixelcount) and test run it for a day or two. If this works it means the sensor in the developer unit that tells the machine to add toner from the cartridge is bad. If that is the case replace the sensor. It sounds like the machine is not adding toner to itself. Have them also test the toner motor.
