Confirm that Cassette 1 i selected (or Cassette 2 if you have optional installed)
and Set the paper type
next navigate to Reg. Paper Size, press OK, confirm again the cassette (1 or 2) and using the arrow buttons, set the paper size (should be LTR if you using LTR)

My Ricoh Aficio printer 1018 is telling me to "load paper 8 1/2 * 11" on the screen whenever i try to print anything from any computer in the network because i am using RJ 45 instead of normal...


Make sure you have 8.5" x 11" paper loaded into at least one of the paper trays, and make sure it's loaded in the same orientation as the page you are trying to print. Also check to be sure the copier is set to recognize 8.5" x 11" paper -- it may be set for a different size. On the main Copy screen, if you select the paper tray, does it show 8.5" x 11"?

Recognizes printer, won't print


What i'm getting at is if the printer was not used for a long time the cartridges may have dried out.

Original Loaded


I just came across this very same problem today on my L7580 and I found that there is a spring loaded bar that flips down and makes a contact. When paper is inserted it lifts this bar up and tell the feeder that there is a document. If this is stuck in the upright position then you will always have the "original loaded" message and have your issue. Mine had popped out of its alignment holes and I had to snap it in and the whole thing worked like a charm!!! I hope this helps everyone else with this issue!!!

Are you sure that all the paper came out? I don't really know anything specific about your partic- ular printer; but if any paper is still in the paper path, it may not allow itself to power on. Can you see that the paper path is clear all the way through from pickup to finish? Do you have a user's manual with the printer? You may be able to perform some sequence of steps to clear the nvram on the printer if necesary. If still no power, investigate power connection, try alternate source (other outlet, power strip). Also, alternate power cord for printer if possible. Good-luck:)
