Does a Ricoh AF 200 copier have a harddrive


If the copier has the optional print controller unit installed, then it should have a hard drive. Otherwise, if it doesn't have print capability, it does not have a hard drive.

How do I remove the hard drive from a Lanier LD328c. This needs to be done for security reasons.


You should contact a Lanier or Ricoh service technician to remove the hard drives for you, but if you have to do it yourself the hard drives can be removed by unscrewing and sliding out the controller board (on the right side of the copier). The hard drives are connected to the controller board by three screws and four connectors.

Hard drive scrub - Ricoh 1022.


Ricoh offers a Data Overwrite Security kit, but I don't think it will work with the 1022. Your best bet is to remove the hard drive, attach it to a computer, and wipe it with a program such as CCleaner or Hard Disk Scrubber (both of which are free to download).

I want to buy a Ricoh 1085 that looks in good condition, but the hard drive was removed for security reason, Will it work with out the hard drive?


No, the 1085 needs the hard drive to run. You're better off trying to find a newer copier anyway -- the 1085 is ancient and you probably won't be able to get a lot of replacement parts for it. You can probably find a 2090 or 2105 for a good price -- those machines are still supported and will run for a long time.

My ricoh aficio 2232c was unplugged and when I plugged it back in it keeps saying Please Wait across the screen and doesn't do anything else. Please help


If no error code comes up then you have a hard drive error in your Print controller.
Remove the back cover (unplug machine) remove the cover for the controller (controller is in upper right on rear side of machine and disconnect the hard drive.) Plug machine back in and see if it comes to ready. if so replace the drive, if not controller is bad.

Removing Data from leased Ricoh, Canon, IKON MFDs


I can only advise on the Ricoh machines. If you remove the 2-4 screws holding the printer interface in the machine, the entire assembly pulls out and the HDD's are easily removed from the board.
The 20xx is a basic laptop (IDE) drive the 30xx is a standard PC (IDE) drive. As for the newer 3500,4500, etc. They may be a newer SATA or the even the same (i have minimal experience on these ones), but your IT dept can identify them. You can replace these for the cost of a new drive (maybe $60-$80) - The currently installed drives are maybe 20Gb-40Gb . I believe you can only buy maybe an 80Gb these days, but that's fine. Install them and do what you like with the old ones. There should be no formatting required and all features should work as before with the exception (obviously) of anything stored in the document server /address book, etc. Scanning destinations will probably be deleted as well, however it will have no affect on printing features.
Of course 'Ricoh' or "Ikon" (owned by Ricoh) wants to replace it with their "proprietary" HDD at hugely inflated prices -but they will just be "hitachi", or "toshiba" dirves anyway.
I would not be surprised at all if the Canon machines were just as easy - most are.
I don't think you'll want to mention this to your service company, or they will likely come back at you for 'tampering' or something foolish.

This is a suggestion only , and I myself won't accept any liability for damage caused or costs incurred, should you decide to try it.
