Sometimes with those small copiers, the cap from the old toner bottle will remain when you put in a new bottle. Take out the toner bottle and look in the mouth of the toner hopper (where the top of the bottle sits) to make sure there isn't a plastic cap with two fins on it sitting there. If it is there, that's your problem -- just throw it away.

If there's no old toner cap there, make sure the toner bottle is sitting on the hopper tray and the tray is pushed in, snapped into place, and the green handle on the front is in the downward position. If the toner hopper isn't pushed in all the way so it snaps in, the machine won't be able to load toner.

If neither of these scenarios is the problem, check to make sure you have the right kind of toner. I believe for a 1515 it should be type 1170D, but you might want to check your owner's manual to be sure.

How can i fix the 'replace toner cartradge 'which is show in ricoh printer 4210


Please follow the steps to replace the toner cartridge on the attached link: http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi_view/0001037/0001037078/view/hardware/unv/0084.htm
http://www-it.desy.de/systems/services/printing/help/Manuals/Ricoh/SP-4210/Manual/hardware/unv/0098.htm?lang=en;view=print

If the message Replace Print Cartridge remains, it means that it is not the correct toner cartridge, replace it with the correct one. If Reset Print Cartridge message appears after correct replacement, it means that the toner cartridge is not set correctly or not installed. Set the toner cartridge correctly. If the cartridge is installed, close the front cover and turn the power switch to off and to on. If the message appears again, contact your sales or service representative.

Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.

Hi, unfortunately you can't make any copies or prints when the machine is out of black toner. If you still have the toner bottle, you could try gently shaking it and reloading it to see if the machine can squeeze just enough toner out to keep you up in the meantime.

Unfortunately the newer ricoh equipment may include a chip like the HP toner. This allows the printer to track the usage so the printer can "intelligently" determine how much toner remains in the bottle. The chip overides all other factors on the remaining toner. Hence, if the chip "thinks" that the toner bottle has little or no toner left, it will give you a false toner low message. Presently, you can only replace the toner with a new bottle.
