Re: Copying using the Duplex function

Press on duplex button and scan your originals one by one on the platen mode (exposure glass). You cannot use the ADF for this function.
After every scan press the Start button.
After the last page please press the enter button as displaying in the display.
Then the copier itself can finish making duplex copies as you wanted.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

How do I fix a problem with my photocopier Ricoh Aficio 1515MF, whenever I try to copy it tells me to "Follow instructions in Right Cover to Remove"

Sounds like it thinks there is a jam. Check registeration sensor flag also exit sensor and duplex sensor. Could be dust or fuser sensor out of place or the duplex guide is broken

We have a Ricoh Aficio MP c5000 and I'm trying to duplex copy in color and it keeps jamming right at (what I assume is) the fuser. I can copy in black and white duplex but not color. It's almost like it...

Fuser could be wearing. copying in color creates a thicker layer of toner on the paper which in turn creates more friction within the fuser. Make sure the copier is set to thick paper if in fact you are using thicker than 20 pound paper.

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.

�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

Reset Duplex Unit Correctly on Ricoh 2232C

Hi There,

The vertical box on the left side of the machine is not closed all the way. Open it, and close it again. It is directly on the left side of the main machine.

Ricoh Aficio 2035G Duplex issue

When you open the whole duplex unit you will see a very small metal tab with a screw, on the top right side on the machine. This activates the switch on the duplex unit.
Or with the duplex unit open you will se a small rectangle hole inside a switch, put a piece of paper or something to activate it, might got stuck.
This problem is very common on this machines.
