Question about Ricoh FAX5000L Plain Paper Laser

Ricoh Aficio fax 5000L (error code & Factory Settings?)

We purchased this machine used from a company going out of business. When I plug in the machien a red light comes on that says error code 3-31 call service. I downloaded the manual which simply says call a service repair location. Does anyone know this error code or how I may go about resetting the machine to factory settings? I have not yet located a service repair person in my area, Clayton Missouri.

Thanks!

HI there below is the reason for your error message and it is to do with the laser unit and will normally need to be replaced when this message comes up.


Hexagonal mirror motor startup error 3-31


You could try resetting it by the following
· Try to clear the service call condition (for failures which are not related to the
fusing unit): switch the power off, wait 10 seconds, then switch back on.

I take it you have already tried this but if this doesn't work then the unit will need replacing

Thanks J

There is a service code to disable the key counter. I'll have to look it up. If you are not connected to a network, you can still use the copier without being hooked up to one. That is just a warning message. You can clear it out by pressing user tools counter. Select interface and set all ip addresses to 0.0.0.0.

Aficio 5000L will not receive most faxes.


That is a problem with your phone service. Your fax machine does not care where the fax comes from.

Does your machine have a document feeder on it? If so, turn off and unplug the machine from the wall, and check in back of the machine to see if the feeder is plugged into the unit properly. Try reseating the document feeder plug to ensure good contact. Plug the machine back into the wall and turn it on. If it detects the document feeder, fax and scan functions should be restored.

Could not receive and send Fax


Sending faxes and revieng faxeng through a pbx you need te configure the pbx and youre fax too.( Dail a 0 before youre messages! ) You have to connect always on the pstn line on the 210sf even if you use a pbx.

The Ricoh spc210sf isn't supporting an pbx on isdn line!! Watch out for this because the isdn line is working on 24Volts!! Then you can blow youre fax modem of the spc210sf .

You can contact me true email= r.trip@alice.nl
Let me know is you encounter new problems?
