Richo 2022 prining with no toner


Question, My toner lite used to come on saying I had no toner. The prong that opens that cap was stuck. now it is working. the problem now is that the printer keeps printing with no ink at all and the lite does not come on either. Any ideas.

    Thank you for your answer.

    The image is perfect until I start running out of toner. Then I take the pcu out shake it and put it back in. Then it works again until the toner runs low.

    I took both the toner and pcu out and drained all the toner from the machine (thining it would then refill) however, now I get a very dim image (like a ghost image)

    Thank you for answering and for all your help!!!

    I am getting a faint image.

    What I did was took a ream of paper and kept printing perfect copies until the toner ran dry. Then replaced the toner bottle. now its just not refilling itself and the toner light that went on 1 week ago is not going on now.

    Thanks again for helping me

Are you getting any sort of image?? If very light poss cause is the High voltage terminal (HVT) or it maybe as simple as the drum unit is faulty and thinks that there is enough toner in the unit for normal operation. Suggestion change drum unit and test if not then next stop in the line will normally be the HVT.

Thanks J

    When you emptied the drum unit you also emptied the developer that is need to mix with the toner to produce the copy you will now need to replace the drum unit as it comes with the developer in it.

    Thanks J

Why does richo aficio 2016 copier keep asking for toner hen toner is full

As long as the toner sensor senses it is empty, it will keep telling this. Or the sensor is defect, or a cable came lose, or perhaps you only have to shake the toner cartridge a few times. Be aware it is open now.

My Lanier LD225 copier says it is out of toner. I opened the front door, lited the green handle slid the toner cartridge holder out and replaced the toner cartridge. The copier cycles like it is loading...

Well... Are you sure that the bottle are spinning?
You say that the cap on the cartridge (or the correct name PCU Unit) are clear. The question is: Is there toner? It is full? Because if you do not see toner in that cap is because nothing is getting there. So, or the bottle are not spinning or the clutch is faulty.
If you are sure that the bottle are spinning you probably have a faulty TD sensor. This sensor measures the amount of toner in the Development Unit.
Sorry... but The best help i can give you is to call a technician to see it.
See you!

RICOH AFICIO 2022 I got an error with the cartridge. machine says that there is no toner, put PCU

If it says there is no toner but you have toner in there, pull out the toner bottle and feel in the hopper (where the toner bottle sits) -- sometimes the gray cap from the old toner bottle gets left behind, and that will block the machine from pulling toner from the new bottle. Remove the cap and your copier should be fine.

If that doesn't fix it, you might need a new PCU. Once they start to get old, the developer gets bad and they don't have the right mix of toner and developer.

CLP-315 - CLP-315 Laser Printer: I have changed all the color toner but not prining...


any error indicated?

run your Smart Panel and check what is the fault that is being detected.

If all the color toner had been replace. what about the OPC & waste toner tank?

note. Please replace the waste toner tank once it is full do not reuse the same waste toner tank. as it will course the internal of the printer to be spread with waste toner and your print out will be dirty and patches.

Ricoh 2045 Doesn't recognize new toner cartridge

Please check the Toner supply unit.
If necessary dismantle it carefully and clean all the toner inside it and clean all the small parts. There must be 2 small mylars attached inside to the cover toner supply unit - If not there that's the problem.
Check also for broken parts.
Try replacing the whole toner supply unit.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
