Ricoh Aficio SP C430DN - Print Data Error

Ricoh Aficio SP C430DN (networked) installed fine on computer running Win 8.1, communicating with printer, but doesn't print - only gives the error "Print Data Error." Have tried different drivers, installing with wizard, manually and with Bonjour for Windows, etc. Other computers on network printing fine to the same machine. Any advice?

    I've tried all of the drivers listed on the Ricoh site, including PCL 5, 6, PS and Universal. Also tried the Print Class Utility. Have uninstalled each old driver and re-started before trying each new set of drivers. I've gotten this printer to work on this computer in the past.

Go to:
and select the copier and OS that you use. Download the PCL5e driver. When you finish downloading, you might have to extract it from the zip format, then run the setup.exe file and follow the prompts.

SOURCE: Mac OSX 10.4.11 won't print to Ricoh Aficio CL2000n network printer

As an update:

I actually had a Ricoh tech come out to my house. It was a warranty service - I was very impressed! He did some fiddling around, said that there was no problem that he could detect but... after he left the Macs can print to the printer no problem. From what I can recall, all of the settings were identical to what they were in the first place on the Mac side.

I still can't get my linux machine to print there but it is a low priority and I am really not trying very hard.

I wish I had more enlightening input.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8550 Won't Print

I was having the same problem. Turns out the IP address in the printer was incorrect. Once I changed the IP address the printer works just fine through our network again. Find your IP address off your server and follow these steps:

1. Choose Info on display menu, press okay button
2. Choose Info pages, press okay
3. Configuration pages-printer info, press okay
4. IP address should read: Correct IP Address number should be displayed on screen.

If not follow these steps to change it:

1. Find printer setup on display menu, press okay
2. Go to connection setup-press okay
3. Network setup-press okay
4. TCP/IP setup-press okay
5. Auto should show as “Off”
6. TCP/IP should show as “On”
7. DHCP/Boot should show as “Off”

If any of these are not listed on display correctly press ok, reset to either On or Off and then enter correct IP address.

Press okay button and follow steps on display menu to exit back to main menu display screen.

How do I get a Machine Administrator logon for our Ricoh Aficio SP C430DN printer?

Hi, sorry if my response sounds like a question, does not the machine administrator status not allude to the status of the account logged into on the Mac? A windows administrator is somebody that has control privileges in an account . I think I am asking whether the privileges referred to are on the Mac rather than on the printer?
I have never used a Mac but on a windows machine all Iwould is uninstall all the software, detach the machine for a work session then reattach and reinstall the software.
Hope this does not sound too......?
Good Luck, hope you get a better response.

By the way, drivers for this in Mac format are available on the ricoh website

Why can't I print to my Ricoh Aficio SP C430DN from my Macbook Air?

You probably have a conflict between the paper size the machine knows is loaded and the document size being specified for printing on. Your Airbook is probably trying to send a document on a paper size the printer doesn't have. Net result is a document stored in the print queue that stops anything else being printed. Go full system reboot and clear out any and all waiting documents before trying again.
