Re: Ricoh Aficio 1515

Do you really want to bypass this mechanism?

I don't think it is a good idea but if you wish I will investigate exact position of the photocell that the printer uses in conjuction with the paper detect sensor to know when paper is present, but before I do I need to get you to understand theconserqenis.

When the paper is out, the machine will not know and will seek to feed ie drives feed rollers, now there will be no paper to slip, in fact the rubber feed rollers will try to feed the base of the paper tray, you are likely to bust a gear, or at least wear the rollers out
due to friction from feed rollers on paper cassette.

Do you understand....

Paper tray is full but display still reads to load paper. There is a small sensor? dohickie hanging down inside. It was loose. I reconnected it but am not sure how it fits inside the machine. Pushing in...

Hello info66414,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

You are correct! The Do-hickie is actually called the "Paper Tray Sensor Flag" and it isn't supposed to be dangling down. When it is dangling and won't stay seated, it has been broken by accidental replacement of the paper drawer.
You will have to get ahold of your local Ricoh Repair shop and have them replace this sensor for you. Then it should detect paper properly again.

Have a great day!

The copier is jammed - the copy light and load paper light is on and I can not get the copier to reset.

Have you removed the paper tray to see if there is a piece of paper behind the tray ? Paper will frequently go behind the tray and wind up in the size switches and or the tray lift gears.
I would check that first. Let me know.

How to prink on cardstock on Ricoh Aficio CL2000N

To print on cardstock:

- Load the cardstock paper in the paper tray and make sure the fences are snug but not too tight.
- Press Menu.
- Scroll down to find Paper Input and select it.
- Select Paper Type.
- Select Tray 1.
- Scroll to find "cardstock" on the list and select it.

You'll also have to set your print driver for cardstock or auto select, because if the print driver shows plain paper and the printer shows cardstock paper, you'll get a mismatch error.

Aficio Copier 1013 light on to load paper ( paper is loaded)

Check the paper end sensor, remove the tray, look inside of opening, at the top toward the right side, make sure there is an arm sticking down, wires are connected and the sensor is in place. Most common problem is the arm is dislocated or sensor out of position, See graphic 91009d0.jpg

Standard Try Full

'Standard tray full, remove paper' is the output tray where the prints exit.
Check also the exit sensor/feeler condition.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
