Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Gestetner 2302z Thank you for trying to help me with my "toner needed" light staying on after I put in a new cartridge, Where do I find the thermistor and fuse you mentioned. I am more inclined to believe that something needs resetting because it did make copies, altho not very good ones before the add toner light came on. I did not know how to correctly install the cartridge and I have learned that the plastic plate that came with the toner cartridge was suppose to unlock some clips or something and I just moved the edges of the cartridge holder back and put the cartridge in that way. It may not be in there correctly and may not have contacted something that it needed to contact to reset. Any suggestions? Amy good sites for after market parts sales that might have this information. Something like "Partsdrop" used to be for the xerox copier. Thanks! sabrina5

After replacing the toner cartridge you did remove the plastic strip that holds the toner in place?? If you did, on the control panel is a little sunken black button. Just take a pen or then object and hold the button down until the light goes off. This can take up to ten minutes to go off.

Try for spares.

Ricoh Aficio SP 4210N- Code SC 543

This is a common error code for Ricoh copiers, Savin and Gestetner copiers that need service. Recently Ricoh has purchased Lanier and now is naming all their new machines Lanier instead of Gestetner, Savin and Ricoh. However, the copier service error codes have remained he same.
When you get this copier printer service code it means the fuser or fixing assembly (same part) has thermistor problem. The copier fuser's thermistors help regulate the temperature of the fuser assembly. The fuser assembly on all copiers including Canon, Kyocera, Ricoh, Sharp and other brands is the part that melts the toner onto the page.
Getting back to the repairing the copier on Ricoh, Savin, Lanier and Gestetner models that have the fuser or fixing code error. The majority of the time the fusers' thermistors (Middle and read) need to be replaced. Just cleaning them will not solve the copier repair service code.
It is usually, depending upon the machine, its a 1 to 2 hour copier repair job because the copier repair service technician will need to dissemble the fuser, insert the two new thermistors, re-assemble, reset the error code and test the copier machine repair. Also, ask the copier technicians to to do a copier cleaning maintenance while on site.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Wat does it mean if the machine is saying toner cartridges not set properly

the main reason for this could be when you replaced the toner cartridge you have either not put in correctly or an incorrect toner put in. Check the other cartridges to see if when you remove one you get the same error if this is the case you could have a faulty toner. Is the toner an origina Gestetner toner you may need to return it...K

After installing an off brand cartridge for a Gestetner copy/fax machine, it only printed half pages and the printing was poor. They said the brand name cartridge was no longer available. please...

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.

Copier will not load toner

Did you install a new toner bottle? If so did you remove the pull tab or tape that seals the toner from spilling out. If it is a new toner that you know of, do you have another to install. It may be a defective toner. From what you explaining it sounds like there is no toner in the developing unit. Try antother toner first...

Gestetner 2302z photocopier toner light stays on but has toner in it

The error code has got something to do with your fuser. Either the lamp is blown, the thermistor could just be dirty or the fuse has blown. These manuals are very old, do not know if it will be easy to get the manual.

IBM infoprint 1312 toner and error light.

If both Lights are solid, it means that the top cover is still open and the toner is low. Please make sure the top cover is closed all the way. If the toner light is blinking and the errror light is solid, it means there is a toner cartridge error. Please try a new cartridge. If that solves the issue, then you should return the damaged one.

Gestetner 3222

When you put a new cartridge in I take it you have removed the black cap that sits on top of the toner bottle (if you haven't remove it) The machine as default allows a 15 second gap from when you open the door and put the cartridge in to when you close the door. If you are too fast at changing toner open the door wait 15-20 seconds then close the door . Machine will then show on the control panel that toner is loading. If this does not work repeat two more times if still does not work then the drum unit (Photo Conductor Unit) is not accepting toner you will have to replace it.

Hope this works
