Dirty or faulty sensor. Check if you can give it a good blow with a blower (if you have one) then check to see if it senses the paper. Otherwise its a dead sensor.

BYPASS MISFEED, FEED FROM TRAY IS OK


the bypass tray does not have paper sensors, so when you print you need to specify the dimensions of the paper ion the print driver and in the machine system features-tray paper settings..

Even though my printer settings are set to print and use the paper in tray 1 - the printer wants to pull from the bypass tray (which always pulls crooked). The printer used to work just fine then the alert...


Two things to check for a problem like this:
1) Driver Settings:
If your computer's drivers are telling the machine to pull from the bypass tray it'll ignore the machine settings. You're kind of on your own here figuring it out, if you can't though then try deleting the printer from the computer and re-installing it (will default settings)

2) Manual Feed sensor:
When you put paper into the bypass try you're activating a flag which tells a sensor there's paper there, if this flag is stuck forcing the sensor to constantly think you have paper there it would always to pull from there. Find the flag, move it back and forth, hit it with some air from a can of air.

Ricoh SP c222sf is not recognizing that there is paper in Tray 1 or bypass - tried to rest tray 1 and turn on/off, but the display still shows that there is no paper. What else can I try?


There is a paper detect sensor which sits in the frame of the machine above the paper tray. Pull the paper tray out and make sure this sensor didn't get broken or knocked out of place. (If you have a can of compressed air, shoot some into the sensor to get rid of possible paper dust.)

Ricoh/Aficio SP C410DN Tray priority switches on its own


It is pulling paper from the tray specified within the application you are printing from or the driver. For example, from Microsoft word, you would have to go into page setup and select the tray you would like it to pull from. You will also want to check which tray it is pulling from in the driver, however the application generally overrides the driver settings. Both of which override anything you program at the machine.

Ricoh AP3800C "Output tray full"


Check the little black piece of plastic that senses the printed page exiting the machine. Our sensor was stuck and I was getting the same message (an similar Ricoh product). When I gently reset the black piece to center, moving freely, printing worked again. I think the sensor got jammed up when we were trying to remove a bad paper misfeed.

Ricoh manuals very confusing on this error message. They refer to standard tray, tray one, etc. without being clear whether it's a paper feed tray or the so-called "standard OUTPUT tray." The output is not really a tray, it's just the depression where your sheet lands after printing. I wrenched on the paper feed trays and their settings for an hour before I figured out they meant OUTPUT.

How to print 17 inch paper on Ricoh AP 3800 C


You should just be able to place paper on the tray and then select the bypass tray under "properties", "Paper", then under "tray" select "bypass tray" when printing.

The problem is caused by a black sensing arm that is located at the middle of the exit area and is a long actuator arm that is hanging up and creating an indication that the exit tray is full when it's not. That thing was originally designed to prevent the exit tray from becoming over full and creating a backup and jamming into the the machine. Really bad engineeering. You can permanently rid yourself of this problem by removing the black sensing arm. It pops right out of the two little holders and removing the small front panel and unplugging the sensor. It is accessed by removing a screw from the upper right side of the machine. The panel then pops out exposing the sensor and associated plug. Disconnect the sensor and the error indication will go away, never to return. Too bad I can send a picture. It would really make it clear.
Let me know if this helps. Aloha, Bill Monroe
