Question about Ricoh Aficio 1013F Copier

1 Answer

Saying load paper

There is a little black piece under the machine when you remove the paper tray that must register when there is paper in the tray or something, ours has fallen out and has had to be sticky taped to hold it in and print anything or copy anything.

Is there any service people in the Newcastle NSW area that would be able to fix this?

Actually, you probably do not need a service person.

1. Turn machine off.
2. Remove toner assembly, not just bottle.
3. Unplug wire, and remove PCU. (right door must be open)
4. Remove the paper tray.
5 Turn the machine on its side.

You will be able to see, that it just snaps into place. Most likely one of the tabs broke off, but you can put a drop of super glue on it, and it will be fine. Make sure it has free up/down movement when installed before you glue it.

Then, make sure your guides in your paper tray are in there tracks. That is the most probable cause of your problem.

It says printer out of paper. Load it up. It had paper in the tray. But keeps giving same messageI use plain paper.Getting so annoyed with it. Gail

Printers have a paper out sensor and corresponding flag that hangs down under the printer when the paper tray is removed or opened. From your description there is some issue with this flag and/or sensor which is registering the paper out signal when in fact paper is loaded into the tray and the tray is installed.

Hope this helped.

Clean a KX-P7100 printer

The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.

If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.

In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.

Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).

Hope this helps!

Remove the paper tray and check the guides. Make sure they are lined up on the 8.5 X 11 marks. If it is lined up, try going into the menu of the printer and reset back to defaults.

I'm at work, and the fax printer copier and scanner we have here is a canon IR2030i. A piece of paper was jammed, which I have removed, but the printer still registers as having a paper jam. I have looked...

Please NEVER turn upside down machines like thit one. Lots of shits can happened!!!!
When you open left cover you will have to find paper sensors (little black pawls) and try to shake it a little(maybe someone is stacked). And please keep looking for piece of paper somewhere(look in all paper trays too)

Roller pulls several sheets of paper instead of one

You need a separation pad for the paper tray. It would be advised to replace the feed rollers at the same time.
In the short term, you can pull out the paper tray, and on the very front (where the paper feeds out), you will see a black (or gray) rubber pad that is spring loaded. Scrub this pad with a little alcohol, on a cloth. You can even rough it up a little with a brillo pad. This should improve the feeding for the short term.

Ricoh AP3800C "Output tray full"

Check the little black piece of plastic that senses the printed page exiting the machine. Our sensor was stuck and I was getting the same message (an similar Ricoh product). When I gently reset the black piece to center, moving freely, printing worked again. I think the sensor got jammed up when we were trying to remove a bad paper misfeed.

Ricoh manuals very confusing on this error message. They refer to standard tray, tray one, etc. without being clear whether it's a paper feed tray or the so-called "standard OUTPUT tray." The output is not really a tray, it's just the depression where your sheet lands after printing. I wrenched on the paper feed trays and their settings for an hour before I figured out they meant OUTPUT.
