If you look at the white cam you will see the black cylinder it has a spring inside .. you have the right part everytime you do a copy the clutch actuates the and presses the transfer roller onto the back of the page which then presses against the transfer surface and causes the image to be transfered onto the page .. if faulty the image is week or can be of variable quality..Andy

What is SC305 Error Message - Ricoh 1232C On

I worked on this same code just the other day for a customer. This SC305 code means the charge corona cleaner is not working properly. The charge corona is located behind the large front door, towards the bottom and just left of center. It has a small thumb screw and a white cord with an end on it like a telephone cord. You can try removing the assembly and blow it out carefully with canned air. Be careful about the very thin hairlike wire in the shell. You can also remove the end of the unit and check that the motor is not gummed up. If it is just put a little light oil on it. Just cycle the power off then on again to reset and try.
Usually once they get repositioned properly they will work fine. Sometimes I have replaced the unit with one from a parts machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Ricoh Aficio 1232C rpcs When I try to print the red light appears on the printer saying 'load by pass tray' even though I have selected Auto tray. Normally the machine prints fine.

when you selected auto tray was that in the driver or microsoft settings ? microsoft settings will overide the copier settings driver. look under file then page setup to see what it is set for.

Incomplete copying/printing. Full page not copying, just 3/4 of the page, whether b/w or colour. when photocopying or printing only a thrid of the text or image is printed.

Check wether the transfer belt cleaning unit inside the photoconductor unit have wrong cleaning cycle due to the defective cleaning clutch.

Ricoh aficio 1232c. The registration clutch SP 5804-11 is not making clicking sound in output mode. It jams at point B when duplexing. What part do I need and would cleaning this reg clutch out help?

you need a new registration clutch then probably part number is AX20 0240 i believe but if the reg clutch is faulty i would usually replace all feed clutches at the same time other part numbers are AX20 0239 relay clutch x 2 and AX20 0224 feed clutch x 2
