Question about Riso Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a GR3770 with feed problems. It appears that the pressure roller is not being raised to the drum. With the back off, I can see that the pressure lever moves to the hook but the solenoid fires when the hook is below the lever so it never engages. I think the solenoid is told to energize by the paper sensor. the psen led lights so I believe the paper sensor is working. I can hook it manually and it'll print 1 copy. Any ideas?

    I've made progress with this problem. I wound up taking everything apart to get to the paper sensor, cleaned everything up and reassembled. Still had same problem so I went thru the timing section. The alignment hole on the cam pulley lined up ok but the notch on the p disc was 180 degrees. I loosen the belt tension and rotated the cam pulley until the notch was level with the top of the clutch sensor.

    I loaded a new master and just made 150 copies with no problem except the vertical position is off about 1/2". I could adjust it somewhat with the center button but I know that's not the solution.

    Any ideas how I can adjust the vertical position?

    To recap:
    The timing lever gap is 2.5mm
    The main pulley alignment holes line up
    The cam pulley alignment holes line up
    The p-disc notch is in the correct location
    The image on the master looks correct

    Is that a programming change? I don't see that as an option in the initialized settings menu. Can you tell me how to change it?

If the problem is logical, there isn't much you can do but replace the control board. But if your fairly sure that the problem is mechanical, like you said, everything seems to be working and you know the solenoid does fire. So most likely something had to have changed the alignment of the paper sensor or another sensor similarly responsible for the initiating a copy.

Can you bend or move the paper sensor in any way to change the timing with which the solenoid fires? This would be a simple fix.

    Can you change the "starting position" option in the menu system for the printer. This would effectively change the vertical alignment without having to physically rig anything.

Machine will not move material under pressure foot. Thread get all bound up like tension my be too tight!

is stitch length setting correct, should be 2.5 for straight stitch. are feed dogs lowered for some reason? raise pressure foot and manually turn flywheel towards you while watching feed dogs. do they move up backwards and down? sounds like they are not feeding fabric through. check manual for how to raise and lower feeddogs if they appear to be down. sometimes its a button on base front or back of freearm. hope this helps out a little

Pulled drum out and now it's stuck outside the machine Risograph CR1630/1610


It seems as if the machine was not in the home position when the drum was pulled out.
The pressure roller is in the up position stopping the drum from entering.
To reset the pressure roller, you will have to remove the back cover, behind the power supply you will see a arm with a heavy spring on it. pull the arm up until it clips into the solenoid.
Once the preasure roller is back down look into the machine, there is a gear with 2 holes in it.
The hole on the left must be in line with the hole in the frame, the hole on the right on the gear must not line up to any holes but show to the exit side on the machine.
I hope this helps you

E2 error code on Xerox work centre xd series 120f copier

e2 is a paper jam problem. check that the paper guides in the cassette are positioned aginst the paper properly. Also remove the toner and drum cartridge. Clean all rubber rollers that you can get to with a damp cloth ( water). You are especially trying to clean the upper and lower registration rollers that "pinch" the paper. I hope that this helps.

Riso GR3770 will not pull the paper through once it passes the initial feed assembly. The paper ''picks up'' just fine, but after the lead edge enters the machine, it kicks off impression and gives a...

what happens sometimes is the rear side of the registration (shiny silver color) roller becomes worn down so bad that the spring cannot grab properly. the registration roller, in this case, would have to be replaced.

the way to check is by getting to the back of the machine, and if this is the cause, the spring should be a little wobbly on the shaft. with a new roller, the spring fits snug, and grabs properly for it to feed.

When developer goes bad you use more toner for one thing, but the main sign is a gray background in your copy. The print should be black but appears to be gray. The ricoh 350/450 was always noted to leak toner and developer as it runs. Check your machine and see if you see any small piles of toner, which also has developer in it, in the machine. Ther are small seals made of felt that need to be replaced if you have this problem. These seals rub against the drum sides....Good luck.

Paper feed rollers? use WD-40. Spray on wipes, away from printer- and just wipe the feed rollers from side to side. Doesn't need a lot of pressure or WD-40. Just keep away from drums, and toner, allow to air dry a few minutes, and run a test copy. Will feed paper better then ever.
