Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a RICOH AP3800c Printer with Scanning Extender on a network in my home office. I use ScanRouter V2 to scan via Scan PaperPort 11. Everything has been fine until last week. The PaperPort reported a number of times via Twain Driver Ver. 3 that the ?Scanner could not be found?. It worked one more time and then reverted to the error message. Since that time the machine decided to give me another message. ?Contact the Service Error SC541?. Simply switching on and off did not work. SC541 is according to my list of messages has to do with the Fuser mechanism, I changed the fuser for one from my other working machine that does not have the Extender unit but the message remains. I changed the Controller and BCU to a Non extender Controller and BCU but no improvement. Is there anything that I can do to fix the machine. I realise that this is two ?Fixes? so firstly how do I fix the SC541 error and then re-engage for another fix for the scanner problem. I put them together since the problems may be related.

The 541 code needs to be reset in the service mode. It is a level a code and will not go away by turning the off and on.

Ricoh Aficio 2018D - previously used a scan router software to scan to file on Windows server. Now being told Windows server 2008 is not compatible. We are using scan to email but very cumbersome. Is there...


No, all the newer machines have imbedded scanning. The scanrouter software was an old product and only supported through 2k3 server. I would setup an old PC with the scanrouter and whatever platform you were running before and use it just for scanning. You can install it as a service so it will run on its own.

I operate Windows 7 and installed Paperport 11. I want to scan documents from another program, like WORD. In the printer drop down you are supposed to see: Paperport Black & White as well as Paperport...


This type of information (different ways to scan) come through the software. I'm pretty sure you will not be able to do this by the (add printer) method. I would uninstall the Paperport driver from your computer, then reinstall, and try to use the "advanced" method to see if it will allow you to add those two. I have found if scanning ability shows up in one Microsoft Office product, it will show up in another. Plus, my photo processing program will show the same ability.

I have a ricoh 1515 and can not get scan to file to work


You need to tell the machine it has a delivery server, this can be done by selecting user tools/system settings/file transfer/delivery option/On. After doing this you may have to remove and readd the I/O device from within scanrouter.

Aficio 1035 web interface user name and password


The Default factory passwords are not what you have listed. They are the following:
User name: administrator
Password: password (or possibly leave blank)

Give that a try.

However, the web interface isn't all that special on this older model anyway. All you need to program are the Ip address, and subnet mask, as there is no scan to email function, and the scanning can only be done via a software, that you won't have, and is getting difficult to find, because it is no longer supported, and just as complicated to configure should you find it ("Scanrouter V2 Lite" is the name ) as opposed to direct scan to folder. By the way this scanning software is NOT Vista compatible should you find it.
If you can't log into the web interface....on the machine, go to "user tools', "system settings", Interface settings", and set your IP address and subnet mask...that's it.

Please rate response :)

Ricoh 1515MF Scanning


Easier said than done...you'll probably need a tech for this one.
First..to scan to folder you require a software called "scanrouter Lite" from Ricoh, which is actually kind of hard to get a hold of these days, since it's nnot supported anymore, and then the configuration is not easy , because it is proprietary...meaning only Ricoh uses it, and it is almost impossible to configure for anyone else that has not used it.
There is however Scan to email, and for this you can open a web browser, and type it's Ip address (if you have it connected via tcp/ip port), enter "admin mode"...user name= "admin", password = "password"...then enter all network settings...IP, DNS, POP,SMTP, etc. then in "address book" enter your destination settings.
This is not a configuration that is easy for a novice either, and it is also not compatible with an email server that uses authentication for outgoing mail.
I may not have helped, b ut I hope I clarified.

My Ricoh Aficio 1035 is not seeing the network


You will need to assign a new appropriate IP address for the machine under "user tools" system settings", "Interface settings", "Ip address".
Then create a new tcp/ip port for the printer, and point the old driver to this. Scanning may require additional work -perhaps a tech, to reconfigure the scanner. Your probably using the "scanrouter" software?

Cant scan via network?


You cannot use the paperport software to network scan. The paperport software is looking for a driver that is not installed. Network scanning for this printer is basically just file sharing. You initiate the scan at the printer itself. It scans the image and puts it on your computer. After it is there, you can use paperport to convert it to text if need be.

Problem in scanner when scan


Try adding the scanner's IP address in the scnhosts file in the TWAIN folder. Format is similar to the windows hosts file. You'll see a commented out sample entry, just modify that to suit your needs.

This may or may not work for you; we had it working under this configuration but then it stopped for no apparent reason. also note that scanrouter isn't supported under vista. Only advice I've been given so far is to revert to sending scans via SMTP - not ideal!
