Added new toner but light won't go off. Ricoh FT 3713
Yes, I had removed the tape strip. When the machine is turned on it cycles but then after it cycles, it stops and the red toner light is still on, and of course it will not work at all then. Any ideas??

How about the green handle that locks the toner in place? If it is broken the copier will never add toner because it opens the bottle to let the toner out. How about did you try to run in sevice mode to do a "Force Toner" and see what happens.

The Ricoh has toner and developer. When the developer is depleted it can not get to the right density when toner is added so the machine keeps saying to add toner. You need to clean out the developer unit and put in new developer. Depending upon your model you may need to install a drum and blade too. Ricoh technicians are trained to dissemble the unit and just replace the parts needed instead of getting a whole drum/developer unit.

ok, you need to enter service program as follows Press 7 key.Press 1 key.Hold down the stop/clear key until you see "." in the upper left corner of the display. Release the clear/stop key. press the clear/stop key again. Press the lighter key. The number "5" will now flash in the display.Enter "96" using the number keys.When you have enter the code,Press Print, cut copier off then on.
Turn the machine off then on and let the machine go through the process of adding toner again repeat this about ten times. Then it should have added toner by then. If not then the toner motor is faulty and not turning. To check this by putting a mark on the toner bottle shut the door and let the machine add toner after this open the door and check the mark for movement.
