Did you run the copier with out adding toner for awhile? If so, it is going to have to catch up with the toner level it had before or it may need a developer change. The toner level may be to low to regain it's amout of toner again. It may be a coastly venture with running the copier with out toner.. Good Luck...

I have a problem with my photocopier RICOH MP 5002 despite replacing new drum new cleaner blade and new developer my copier still copy very faint copies what could be the problem


when you replaced the developer, did you clean the "mag roll" of baked on toner? Very common problem on this model. Of course you initialized the SP mode 2-801, and 2-805 right? -Carl

RICOH MP 3350B ask for toner even having a new one


Take out the toner cartridge and shake it vigorously. When they sit for a long time the powder tends to clump.

Faint copies


if the counter page looks good then remove the glass and clean the underside of the glass and mirrors, there is also a glass that covers the laser under the toner hopper, that may need cleaning. -Carl

You can smear the print by touching it on the copies you make. The toner is not being fixed to the paper.


please check your fuser/fixing unit if it is ok or heating & pls specify your copier model ei" RICOH FT ____ RICOH AFICIO ____

Our school office Ricoh Aficio 1013 Copier has had multiple toner replacements and now does not make a full black copy but about half the copied page is faint or less dark. Is this a fuser problem? Also...


The partial faint copy in your case is most likely toner on the laser optics. It is NOT the fuser.
Since you are indicating a toner dusting or spillage issue into the bottom or perhaps paper tray area then this toner is also most likely on the laser optics. This blocks a portion of the laser light and results in a faded or sometimes even blank portion of the copies. Dis-assembly of a portion of the machine is going to be required to clean the laser.
It is located between the toner cartridge and the Drum/PCU unit at the bottom of the machine. So if you open the front door where the toner cartridge comes out. The laser strip glass would be below and to the right of there the toner is. Some of these still have a small metal cover/clip that you can remove and then slide the laser strip glass out and clean it then re-install.
Hope this helps. If this makes no sense or does not help then it might be a good idea to call a service company and have the machine cleaned.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Added new toner but light won't go off. Ricoh FT 3713


The TD sensor got disconnected or is broken, the copier needs service because it's not detecting that it actually has enough toner inside to copy.

Light and broken printout and black mark on the backside


Have the service people set the machine to add toner(per pixelcount) and test run it for a day or two. If this works it means the sensor in the developer unit that tells the machine to add toner from the cartridge is bad. If that is the case replace the sensor. It sounds like the machine is not adding toner to itself. Have them also test the toner motor.
