Ricoh Adicio on a mac

I networked out office printer (Ricoh Aficio 2027SP) with my mac running 10.5 via the IP networking utility. It's able to make the connection, but it just spits out blank pages along with a few gibberish pages and will continue going until I cancel jobs on the printer. I have don't the obvious of restarting both printer and computer.

You need the Postscript option installed on the Ricoh and that is pricy

You'll need to download and Install the "PPD" installer for your Mac OSx here, if you haven't already done so:

..... then (assuming that your Copier doesn't have Postscript installed - most don't) browse for the printer, but be sure to select the driver version that points to "pxl", and not a "ps", or "pcl" driver. "PXL" is the only language that will work with Mac if postscript is not installed on the machine.
Good Luck. Please rate me.

Your machine requires the Postscript option installed in order to print from your Mac. The printer is printing gibberish because it cannot understand the postscript driver from the Mac. .

Check the connection to the machine. Otherwise the IP changed on the machine or the network you're on IP changed.

Hi there. When you installed the drivers locally to each computer, you should be given the option to select the device as the default printer. I understand that you have not chosen this during your installation process. The best options would be to either install this driver on the server and/or use a logon script to set as the user's default printer upon each log on to their computers.

Ricoh Aficio 1027 network connection problem with vista x86


It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.

Need help setting up printer on a network


Set a compatible IP address on machine:
"user tools"
"system settings"
"interface settings"
"IP address" (set compatible number)
"subnet mask" (set the right one)

Download driver if it's not done already, create the matching tcp/ip port, and continue with installation. Select "share this printer".

Driver is here if you need it:

Network problem with Aficio 1515f


Sounds like you have a wireless router, but are (for some reason) plugging your laptop into it, and if it's not wireless, you should return it and get a wireless one for about the same money, that will let you use your laptop from anywhere, and the setup is often easier, as it can usually all be done via the Installation CD. You can also still plug the Aficio 1515 into the router and print wirelessly to it from your laptop, once you have it configured.
Next, the Aficio 1515 printer feature included a standard usb port, so I find this a little strange.
You can download the manuals here:

http://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/manuals/bw/aficio1515/

The 'network settings' guide will be most helpful. The two things you primarily need to be concerned with are the "IP address", and "subnet mask". Do not use "Auto", but rather set them manually, and then configure the printer driver
If you don't have a basic understanding of IP addresses, and network printing, then you'll really need some help to complete the setup
