Ricoh FT2260 Copier

Could you please describe Error Code 71 on our Ricoh FT2260 copier, along with the most likely fix? Thanks.

    The code description does NOT pertain to the RICOH FT2260 copier. In layman's english, the paper is transported from the paper tray, passes under and through the toner assembly and stops against the paper pick-up roller before entering under the master unit of the machine. The pick-up roller is not turning to permit the paper to be transported through the remainder of its travel. That is what the Code 71 seems to be about. Thanks.

    There is no loose belt or worn gears. It seems that the gear assembly that is supposed to turn the "now still" paper transport roller is to be activated electrically by a solenoid. This isn't happening. Please try to get specific information that pertains to our machine. There is no apparent visible damage to any part of the paper transport system.

There are basically two types of error codes:

  1. Errors that a developer can cause to happen. Examples include "Out of paper", "Not Reserved", etc. These types of errors are useful to developers and can be used to correct normal error conditions.
  2. Errors that are internal to the product. These errors should occur only if there is some catastrophic failure within ImageControls that is unexpected (see causes below). These types of errors are generally NOT caused by a developer. These types of errors are labeled as "Internal Error" in the trouble shooting tips below. However tech support and engineering can utilize these errors to find and correct problems.
These type of errors are often caused by the following conditions:
  1. product is not properly installed.
  2. peripheral not properly installed / connected.
  3. hardware problems in accelerator or peripheral.
  4. invalid image file data or file corrupted
  5. bug in ImageControls/Bedrock/Driver, etc.
The VirtualReScan error codes displayed below are accompanied by descriptions and troubleshooting suggestions.

Let me know if u got help?

    So there maybe a loose belt in there or a worn-out gear especially that you mentioned that it is almost at its final stage, where the hottest part is located.

  • Rommel Balcita Dec 05, 2007

    Hoping that you tried re-inserting the connection of that solenoid. A mechanical switch must be located for the paper to activate that solenoid and maybe it's not working well... Worst case is, in the circuitry to activate that solenoid is already busted. Try to locate relays that triggers the switch

Ricoh Aficio SP 4210N- Code SC 543

This is a common error code for Ricoh copiers, Savin and Gestetner copiers that need service. Recently Ricoh has purchased Lanier and now is naming all their new machines Lanier instead of Gestetner, Savin and Ricoh. However, the copier service error codes have remained he same.
When you get this copier printer service code it means the fuser or fixing assembly (same part) has thermistor problem. The copier fuser's thermistors help regulate the temperature of the fuser assembly. The fuser assembly on all copiers including Canon, Kyocera, Ricoh, Sharp and other brands is the part that melts the toner onto the page.
Getting back to the repairing the copier on Ricoh, Savin, Lanier and Gestetner models that have the fuser or fixing code error. The majority of the time the fusers' thermistors (Middle and read) need to be replaced. Just cleaning them will not solve the copier repair service code.
It is usually, depending upon the machine, its a 1 to 2 hour copier repair job because the copier repair service technician will need to dissemble the fuser, insert the two new thermistors, re-assemble, reset the error code and test the copier machine repair. Also, ask the copier technicians to to do a copier cleaning maintenance while on site.

Printer shows error CH551

Is this actually a Ricoh Aficio 1013F, or another model, because "CH551" is not a ricoh service code?Do you mean "SC551"
If so, this is a fuser "triac" problem (basically a fuse in the heater unit). It can only be reset in service mode after the problem is fixed...and will require a tech.
