Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier

1 Answer

I have a Functional Problem. The little wrench shows on the User Tools / Counter button location and on the screen. The Functional Problem code looks like SC542-00. It tells me to shut off copier and turn back on if problems continues to call service. Is there something simple that could cause this. A service call will cost me around $200. Thank You Jeff

On my lanier ld024 wen i want to copy in color is asking me for key operation code i dont have the code does anyone know how to by pass or reset the code

Hi, you can turn off the key code management by going into User Tools. Press the User Tools/Counter button, then go to System Settings and then Admin Tools. There should be an option on the screen (you may have to scroll down) for key counter management -- turn this option off.
When you exit out of User Tools, you should be able to see the Copy screen just like you normally would, without having to enter a key code.
If the message on screen is asking you for a User Code rather than a key code or key counter, that option can also be disabled in User Tools. Go back into the Admin Tools and look for an option called User Authentication Management, or something similar, and either disable it completely or disable it for copying.

How to get the page count on a Ricoh Aficio copier

On Ricoh's Aficio line of copiers, you can get the page count without having to print out a configuration page or status page. To see the page count of an Aficio copier, follow the steps below.

For models with touch screens:

With the copier turned on, press the User Tools/Counter button on the operation panel. (If User Tools and Counter are two separate buttons on the model you are using, press the Counter button, and the page count will be displayed -- that's all there is to it.) When the User Tools menu appears on the screen, press the Counter button on-screen (typically located in the lower left or lower right corner).

The copier's page count will be displayed on the screen. For copiers with additional functions (such as printing) the page count will also be broken down by function. Color copiers will display a color page count and a black and white page count, but not a total count.

You can print out a hard copy of the page count if you want it for your records, or to fax somewhere. To print the counter, press the Print button on the screen, then press the Start button (on the right side of the operation panel).

For models without a touch screen:

With the copier turned on, press the User Tools/Counter button on the operation panel (typically located just to the left or right of the display screen). The User Tools options will appear. If Counter is the highlighted option, press the OK button to select it; otherwise, use the arrow buttons to select Counter, then press OK.

The counter will be displayed on screen, but you can print it out by pressing the selection button below where Print is displayed, then pressing Start.

Hi, whoever administrates that copier has set it up for key counter management, which means that unless you supply the correct key (which is typically a card that you swipe or a code you enter) you can't make color copies. If this is your copier, you can disable key counter management:
- Press the User Tools/Counter button. - Go to System Settings. - Go to Admin Tools. - Find the option for Key Counter Management and turn it off. - Exit out of User Tools.
Now you should be able to make copies normally.

Hi, somehow the external key counter option for your copier got turned on. This option is typically used for coin-operated copiers such as those found in libraries. You can turn this option off by doing the following:

- Press the User Tools button - Select System Settings - Select Admin Tools - Select Key Counter Management - Choose Off, or de-select the full-color option if it is selected. - Exit out of User Tools

Now you should be able to copy normally!

I have a Functional Problem. The little wrench shows on the User Tools / Counter button location and on the screen. The Functional Problem code looks like SC542-00. It tells me to shut off copier and turn...

SC542: Fusing temperature warming-up error The fusing temperature does not reach the fusing standby temperature within 135 sec (35CPM machines) or 145 seconds (45CPM machines) after the main power switch is turned on. - Possible causes - • Fusing thermistor defective or out of position • Fusing lamp open • Fusing thermofuse open • BICU defective • Power supply board defective • Poor fusing unit connection
Sometimes by going into service mode and then turn off copier and back on will clear this message or while in service mode do an error clear. But most of the time it is the thermistors in the fixing unit needs to be cleaned or replaced. I would probably call in the techs.

Ricoh 2232c user code issue

Press user tools counter. Go to the key operator section. Look for the user codes settings. There is a screen in there that tells the copier when to use the user code (copy, print, fax, scanning).
Where the scanner section is make sure it is disabled or off.
