Question about Ricoh Aficio 1018D All-In-One Laser Printer
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.
If u sure of the toner u use .may there are a problem with developer unit gears it may need to replace.

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.
