    thanks. we've solved the problem by installing a new driver. does this specific printer have high quality print out? we couldnt find out just yet as it needs to be cleaned, according to the technician. if it does not have photo-quality print out, we'll exchange it.

The print driver might be defaulted to black and white. Change it to color.

My Ricoh SP 232sf wont print at all because the K toner is out of toner but it has plenty of color. Can I force it to print somehow?


Unfortunately, no, the printer won't print even in color if the black toner is empty. The black drum rotates whether the copier is printing in black & white or color, so if black is empty you can't print at all.

I am working with Leopard Mac OS X 10.5.8 and cannot find a printer driver for my RICOH Aficio 3800C. Please can you tell me where I can find it and how to install it.


You can get the AP3800C Mac driver directly from Ricoh here:

http://ricoh-usa.com/downloads/downloads.asp?tsn=Ricoh-USA&path=http://support.ricoh.com/bb/html/dr_ut_e/rc2/model/p3800c/p3800cen.htm

If this link doesn't work, follow these steps:

- Go to Ricoh-USA.com
- Click Downloads on the blue bar along the top
- Click "Download Ricoh Drivers & Software"
- Select the AP3800C from the drop-down list under Printers, B&W/Color/Gel and then click Go
- Choose your operating system from the list
- Download the two files listed under Mac OS X 10.5

Once the files are downloaded, you should be able to install the print driver normally.

Hope that helps!

LED reads color registration error


The black along the side of the paper is usually the black photoconductor , it also could be the fuser. If the color reg says can't be preformed it probly needs a new transfer belt. If the color reg completes and the colors still don't line up it might be the laser. It also could be dirty reg sensors.

Smearned Printing on Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer


Hi there the smudges are most likely down to the black PCU (Drum Unit) and following are the reasons for the two fault caode you have given me.

SC 261 LD HP sensor
not switched
off (for K only)
After the laser beam pitch was
changed, it takes more than
five seconds for the HP sensor
to switch off.
• Defective motor
• Defective sensor
• Mechanical problem
when switching the
actuator
• Brown fuse (FU81) on
the Power supply unit
1. Turn the main switch off and on.
2. Check the sensor actuator position of
the LD positioning motor.
3. Replace the LD positioning motor.
4. Replace the LD home position
sensor.
5. Check and/or replace the PSU.

SC 380 Black

motor error
SC 381 Color
development
motor error
When the motor speed is
within the target level, the
motor sends a lock signal
(High to Low at CN214-5) to
the BCU.
SC380 is detected under the
following conditions:
• The Lock signal stays High
2 seconds after the motor
turns on.
• The Lock signal stays Low 2
seconds after the motor
turns off.
• The Lock signal stays High
for more than 2 seconds
while the motor is on.
• Defective motor

Colour and black and white


Colors registration need to be adjusted. It's a long procedure to describe. But if you are close to PA or NJ PhillyCopiers.com can do it for you.
