Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

Ricoh 1018d won't add toner after installing toner bottle.

Just got the machine used and toner indicator came on. Ordered toner and received toner. However toner said Gestetner on label. We called and manufacturer said that the Gestetner, Ricoh and Savin were all the same toner and toner bottle. Removed cap from bottle and Installed bottle in toner hopper and slid into machine and held firmly while locking green handle. Checked to see that the bottle was being held in place and was turning and they were. Machine goes into toner adding mode and then back to replace toner bottle after a few minues. Looked inside hopper and saw claws that are supposed to pull out cap at bottle mouth but can't determine whether this is actually happening. Are the Ricoh, Gestetner and Savin bottles the same and is it just possible that the hopper has a problem? I did check and the part # for the hopper B0393031 is the same for the Ricoh, Gestetner and Savin. Thanks for any advice.

The part numbers are different for each toner from ricoh, Lanier, Savin and Gestetner. From what I recall is the bottles are different, check the old bottle vs new. Also if the machine had run very low you may have to open and close the fron cover several times, this intiates a toner feed program.

Message the toner bottle is full please call the server machine printing rico 4500


The bottle full message indicates that the waste toner collection bottle is full. The full bottle needs to be removed and the toner disposed of properly. Then a replacement collection bottle needs to be installed and the waste toner counter reset. This site has the toner bottle: http://www.precisionroller.com/waste-toner-containers-for-ricoh-aficio-mp-c4500/details_47769.html . It is possible to reuse the bottles but most people will spill the toner when they try to empty a collection bottle. You do not want loose toner in your environment.

Turn off the printer (at the power switch) and wait for the lights to stop blinking before attempting the replacement. See page 62 of the network guide for the replacement procedure. See https://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/downloads.aspx to search for your printer and get the manuals.

I hope this helps

Hi!

Have you tried this option from Xerox?
Green Boxes, it seems like you order boxes for free from xerox to send back used toner cartridges.

This is the website:

There are many different companies that sell compatible toner, and the quality varies greatly. You should try getting your money back from the company you bought that toner from, and find a new supplier if you can't get it from Gestetner. Premier is a company that sells compatible toner for many different machines, and they usually get pretty good reviews.
