Question about Ricoh Aficio GX3050N All-In-One Printer

Open Question

I have a Ricoh GX 3050N printer. It says ''Ink depleted''. Any reset zero method for this, apart from change a new one? ( prepfer this because I find that the GC21 series cartridges can be refilled to reuse. Therefore if I can find a method to reset the printer/cartridge just like those in Epson printers, it would be great for everyone.)

Both of the cartridges did need replacing; the black is OK now so just pop in a cyan and you should be fine.

I believe you will need to purchase and install a reset chip. You can find them for the Ricoh C410 here at (that links straight tothe ricoh page - but if you need to search, type in "c410" into the search field on their site).

Contact Ricoh and talk to the tech support guys. The print heads are shot. They might send you a replacement printer and have you return that one in exchange.

Have error code 990 on ricoh gx 3000 printer how do i clear this?

you can try pulling out and reseating the Waste Ink tank which is located behind the machine behind a plastic door cover (left side of machine as you are looking at it from behind). Turn the machine off and on using the main power switch. If the code comes back then you will more than likely need a new Waste Ink Tank.
