Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies
Some days ago it started making bad copies and delaying adding toner. As the machine has 168K copies made, I change the developer and put a new toner cartridge and started to work OK but only made 300 copies and now the error red light is ON and the msg ADD toner as well. I got some experience on MITA and Panasonic but not on Ricoh. Any help????
Is there or was there a grinding noise? If so the gears on the magnetic roller in the development unit are shot. You'll need to replace them. Part numbers: B0393060 and B0393062. If those gears are in good shape then check the front of the development unit where the toner drops in. If it's overflowing then turn the gear in the back of the development unit with a pair of pliers. If it turns, there is a drive problem for the development unit. If it doesn't, replace the developement unit. If there is no toner in the front, check to see if the toner bottle turns. If it does, replace the toner hopper. If not, replace the toner bottle drive motor.

Take out the toner cartridge and shake it vigorously. When they sit for a long time the powder tends to clump.

Are you a tech? I suspect not. You need to remove the drum unit, disassemble, separate the drum from the development unit. Remove cover of developer unit, add developer, reassemble, and run SP2214 to calibrate.
This is NOT a procedure to be performed by an end user...no disrespect intended.
