In order to clean the optics, you have to remove the two optic covers (one over the **** glass on the left and one on the rear side of the main platen glass). Each cover should have 2 or 3 screws.

Clean the **** glass and platen glass with alcohol and a lint-free rag (both sides) and blow compressed air onto the mirrors, lamp, and reflector. It's a good idea to turn off the copier before doing this.

When reassembling, clean the white strip on the underside of the **** glass cover as well.

I have a Ricoh 2232c - ? to install blk developer unit

Press "clear/stop" button, then "1" then "0" then "7" then press and hold "clear/stop" button for ~ 3 seconds. This sequence has to be completed within 5 seconds. This will get you into SP mode. (Don't mess with any other settings in SP mode because this could damage the machine). Now, you will need to navigate to SP5 area, then scroll thru until you find 999 (5-999) Good luck.

Reset Duplex Unit Correctly on Ricoh 2232C

Hi There,

The vertical box on the left side of the machine is not closed all the way. Open it, and close it again. It is directly on the left side of the main machine.
