Ricoh FAX2900L printing too dark

I just replaced the toner cartridge and now it's printing too dark to even read. I can't find any key or function to lighten the print. How can I lighten the printing?

Check the scanner white roller witch is under the front cover where you feed in the paper to be scanned sometimes this gets dirty you can take it out by releasing the levers on each side..this also sets the density for copying.. if you have just put a newe cartridge in also check that it is seated properly as the contacts for the charge might not be connecting properly

Insert toner card

I think you mean insert the toner cart, meaning just that, if you just put a new one in is it OEM, and if it is try gently shaking it to unclump the toner in it. -Carl

Ricoh fax 3310, when printing has dark background on left side, new drum has been installed.

Ricoh's Support suggests reseating the toner cartridge or re-distributing the toner inside the cartridge. This makes sense since you're experiencing darkness only on 1 side of the page. I hope this helps you with your issue and wish you the Best of Luck!

Printed pages look terrible...

I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.

Fax2900L machine not working according to set user parameters

You have programmed the broadcast with 1 too many numbers using the 10 key method. You wioll have to remove just 1 of the numbers in the broadcast. Not one of the quick dial numbers or one of the speed dial numbers, but one of the numbers you entered using the 10 key pad. I believe the maximum is 10, but you must leave 1 free for the memory to work.

I see that you have programmed 53 numbers for this broadcast. Why not assign speed dial numbers for those that you have used the 10 key pad for?

Just want to know the real price

Hi Ms Belle, this is an older model fax and you can probably pick one up second hand for around $100-$200 dollars
