The Key Operator code allows access to the configuration of the machine and is
equivalent to the console root password of a server. Users can be tracked and their
access limited by assigning user codes with ID information. The assigning of user codes
is performed via the Key Operator code. The default Key Operator code is “0000” and
distinct User codes are not by default enabled. However, even if the Key Operator code
is set to a non default this can be overridden as detailed in the service manual by
entering service program mode, pressing the interrupt key then 107 on the keypad and
finally, holding down the <c> key for 3 seconds (Ricoh 1,pp.4-5). No authentication is
required. Once in this mode, all system parameters including the Key Operator code
can be reset to factory defaults. This not only allows the machine to be made inoperable
but also allows data to be archived to the hard disk or memory, allowing data retrieval at
a later date. An alternative way to achieve the same result would be to open the
machine, reset the systems NVRAM, automatically resetting the machine to factory

This code can be reset by turning the machine off at the red power switch located on the left side of the machine. If this does not fix you problem, then the machine may need to be serviced.

Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya

I bought this gestetner 3227 copier at a auction but it has user codes on it and I don't know how to get past them to use my copier, can you help?

Yes, you can delete the User codes.
But first see if you also have administrator code. You have to know that first and then you have clearance to change the User codes.
All these instructions are in the user manual. You can download for free on the website of RICOH. The equivalent of your machine is AFICIO 220.

I need to reset the terminal name and number on the fax portion of the Ricoh Aficio 450 copier. Can anyone assist what that?

The fax user manual for the 450 is no longer available from Ricoh, so I can't check for sure, but the basic procedure is to press the User Tools button, go into Fax Features, and under one of the tabs will be a box where you can change the fax header information.

Hope that helps!

Someone locked the machine out. You can a hold of who your purchased it from to see if they can give you the key operator code to unlock it.

I can give you the service code to restore it but there are several steps involved in doing that.

If the first option doesn't work, let me know and I'll look up the service program to disable the key codes.
