I used the wrong toner in my aficia 200. I bought

I used the wrong toner in my aficio 200. I bought the correct toner and thoroughly cleaned the old toner out. I put in a new canister of the proper toner but now I am getting clean blank pages with no imprint. The machine is not recognizing the new toner. I took the toner cartridge out completely but the machine still will not come up with no toner light. I am guessing the toner needs to be primed in some way. Is there a trick to getting it to load toner?

When you say you cleaned the toner "entirely out", does that mean you removed the drum (photoconductor unit) also, and cleaned it out until there was no powder left inside? I bet you's what you've done now, you see, the toner in that machine is what is known as "dual component" vs. "mono component" in many other machines. What this means is that the toner is 'carried' by another product called "developer" in that machine. Guess where the developer is contained?.....inside the drum unit. You have cleaned all the developer out, and so there is no carrier for the toner. Now you'll need to replace the entire photoconductor unit, because you can't get the developer alone -and "yes" like toner they are all different. It's turning into a costly experiment. Bye the way. The toner for that machine is cheap - maybe $50 a bottle for the OEM (depends where you are)?, and generic versions tend not to work well in Ricoh. It lasts for about 8000 pages - that's cheap copying if you do the math - but not now.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N I get gear marks printing on the left edge of every sheet with a 1/4 in. half circle after 33 marks, like below.... could this be toner leaking? Is there a way to clean it? \ \ \ ...

Either the drum unit is marred or some toner has migrated to where it shouldn't be, possibly onto the fuser roller. A thorough cleaning might be in order.

I have replaced the fuser unit and fuser oil, and still getting streaks different places on the paper. Ricoh Aficia CL 7000

One or more of the drum units or the transfer belt cleaning blade is bad. Only way to tell is to remove each drum and check the surface for the toner "streaks". You can also pull out the transfer belt and check the surface for the streaks. It will be one or the other. Now if you streaks are of a particular color then that points more to the drum of that color.

Two copiers. Gestetner DSM618d - Will not stop showing jam indicator in compartment B. Have a code to call service center error - SC571. No idea. Aficia 200 - keeps saying call service center. Ken...

for the jam code make sure after you have checked that you reset the side door correctly on upper and lower section and that the re is no paper caught behind the paper sensor arm as somtimes if pulled down it can tear and jam the sensor..the 200 might just need the pm counter change or reset..go into the service mode via clear[yellow] 107 then hold down the stop button till the creen changes copier sp and then 7. data log and you can reset the pm there...good luck A

Ricoh Aficio 1022 Toner Bleeds

I ended up taking out the toner bottle completely and just running copies (with no toner in place) until they came out crisp. This used up the toner that was floating around. I was able to make about 700 copies before I needed to put the toner back in. But a **** of paper is still much cheaper than getting a service tech.

Problem with aficio 1035

The developer should probably be changed in it. the cartridge should be inspected as well. Was there any toner spills?
