Most photoconductor assemblies are what they call "CRUs". That means that they are Customer Replaceable Units.

Check with the Ricoh web site "Support" to verify the installation process and order the part.

The printer continues in Self Test, the printer is stuck at this point as it tries to continue to cycle through the power up.

Try to power on the printer without the toner kit and the waste toner box. If the printer stacks again at self test. Next step.... remove one part at time and check if the printer displays any message. First remove the developer unit and power on the machine (normal message "Missing Developer Unit"). Then pull out the fuser unit and power on the machine (normal message "Close Rear Cover"). And finally, remove the Drum Unit and power on the printer (normal message "Call Service 7410").
If the printer still stacks at Self Test, then that is not a good sign. Try to upgrade the printer' s firmware (system + engine). There is a possibility to go further from Self Test.
If it does not, then you have to replace the main pwb.

You may need to replace your photoconductor unit part number 12026XW they only last up to 30,000 copies and it is what gives your the nice clean print. If you are having issue with your print quality this is what I would try replacing first or see if it has a build up to toner on it which you can clean off with a dry soft cloth. The photocondutor unit is in behind your toner and can be pulled out and replaced by you.

Install photoconductor

the photoconductor is commenly refered to as the "drum" .. its the cylindrical part that picks up and transfers the toner to the paper .. the error message might be telling you its time to replace the drum (they do wear out) or perhaps its not detecting the fact that it is in place .. the photo conductor drum is user replacable so it comes out without too much trouble .. sometimes its part of the replacable toner tank .. it would get automatically replaced when you change toner in that case .. be very careful with the photoconductor drum .. any scratches, finger prints or other damage will show up in the printed output .. dont expose it to bright light ...
