Question about Ricoh Aficio 250 Copier

1 Answer

Ricoh 250 doesn't copy/print

Had written previously regarding the wrench light coming on and copier not printing. I did check the code and it is sc320 so it probably is the motor failure. Someone came out and looked at it( didn't charge me anything) and they said something about the scanner motor? not working so maybe this is one and the same. he said it was a major fix $$$$ and probaly not worth fixing because the machine is ten years old. The copier has been running fine no issues whatsoever. So if a part was available for $200.00-$300.00 I would probably try and do that Is it something that can be ordered , how would I find out what order number and where to order?? can this be a do it yourself project if I get the part?? my husband is extremely handy with mechanical stuff. But hate to throw away money if it really isn't worth fixing... Thanks Not sure I'm really asking a question just trying to get some guidance on how to proceed and not spend a fortune

You might be able to find them cheaper online. This will give you the part number. I can't say wether to fix it or not. It is a lot of money to put into a machine of that age. If you had access to good used machines I would say that would be better. Unless your in Kansas this is the best I can do for you.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When I try to copy it goes through the process but then the wrench lights up and it actually doesn't print anything. the paper goes through but nothing is on it. It says to try turning off the machine and...

Whenever you get the wrench light there should be an SCxxx (x=3 numbers) code in the display. The problem you are describing tho sounds exactly like a laser motor failure. If this is the case you should see either an SC320, 321 or 322 code.
If so you are looking at between $200 to $400 to fix the machine depending on your local service options.
If this is not the code you are getting, just reply with the code so we can assist you further.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Functional Problem SC321-00

What is the actual code. Your heading says '321', then you list "320"?
"320" is the polygon (laser motor) that is defective. "321" is more likely the BICU board.
Could simply require the LD pitch adjustment be performed, depending on what else you have done. Do both the 400dpi, and 600 dpi. initial setting
SP 2109-3 (400 DPI)
SP 2109-4 (600 DPI)

Got problem with aficio250

Another thing that can happen to cause a jam when you are printing on there is to make sure that the paper size if correct and matches the trays you are printing to. That condition will happen if the printer tries to print a legal size page and you only have letter paper installed in the trays.

Check your settings in the printer control panel to make sure that the trays match and are correct.

Make sure that the green paper setting knobs match the correct tray size as well.
