No, the 1085 needs the hard drive to run. You're better off trying to find a newer copier anyway -- the 1085 is ancient and you probably won't be able to get a lot of replacement parts for it. You can probably find a 2090 or 2105 for a good price -- those machines are still supported and will run for a long time.

How do I remove the hard drive from a Lanier LD328c. This needs to be done for security reasons.


You should contact a Lanier or Ricoh service technician to remove the hard drives for you, but if you have to do it yourself the hard drives can be removed by unscrewing and sliding out the controller board (on the right side of the copier). The hard drives are connected to the controller board by three screws and four connectors.

Sc 491 for ricoh aficio 1085


sc491 on a Ricoh 1085 is a problem with the fan that cools the polygon mirror motor, in the laser unit. The problem might lie with the fan motor itself, or it might be another problem inside the laser unit. You could try replacing the fan (part #A2941965) but that may or may not fix the problem -- and you may not even be able to find a new fan anywhere, since the 1085 is so old. Ricoh stops producing new parts for old machines after a certain number of years.

The laser unit sits under the scanner bed... remove the platen glass and the laser covers and try cleaning the unit out with some compressed air. Then reboot the machine and see if the code clears up.

Hard drive scrub - Ricoh 1022.


Ricoh offers a Data Overwrite Security kit, but I don't think it will work with the 1022. Your best bet is to remove the hard drive, attach it to a computer, and wipe it with a program such as CCleaner or Hard Disk Scrubber (both of which are free to download).

Removing Data from leased Ricoh, Canon, IKON MFDs


I can only advise on the Ricoh machines. If you remove the 2-4 screws holding the printer interface in the machine, the entire assembly pulls out and the HDD's are easily removed from the board.
The 20xx is a basic laptop (IDE) drive the 30xx is a standard PC (IDE) drive. As for the newer 3500,4500, etc. They may be a newer SATA or the even the same (i have minimal experience on these ones), but your IT dept can identify them. You can replace these for the cost of a new drive (maybe $60-$80) - The currently installed drives are maybe 20Gb-40Gb . I believe you can only buy maybe an 80Gb these days, but that's fine. Install them and do what you like with the old ones. There should be no formatting required and all features should work as before with the exception (obviously) of anything stored in the document server /address book, etc. Scanning destinations will probably be deleted as well, however it will have no affect on printing features.
Of course 'Ricoh' or "Ikon" (owned by Ricoh) wants to replace it with their "proprietary" HDD at hugely inflated prices -but they will just be "hitachi", or "toshiba" dirves anyway.
I would not be surprised at all if the Canon machines were just as easy - most are.
I don't think you'll want to mention this to your service company, or they will likely come back at you for 'tampering' or something foolish.

This is a suggestion only , and I myself won't accept any liability for damage caused or costs incurred, should you decide to try it.
