Print some colored pages and check which color is light.Then you have a toner supply problem for that color imaging section.

SOURCE: Waste toner is almost full on Ricoh aficio AP3800C

Open the main front cover and you will see the white plastic waste toner bottle on the left hand side halfway up. I lies on its side and you can see the bottom of it.

Slide it out gently keeping it level to avoid spilling all the waste toner.

Either replace with a fresh empty waste bottle or empty the bottle into a large plastic bag you can keep sealed with the bottle inside while you shake it.

You have a good chance of spilling the toner all over your clothes if you are not carefull and note that the waste toner IS HIGHLY INFLAMMABLE so no naked flames nearby!!

SOURCE: Ricoh Aficio Color Registration Error

I had the same problem on my printer. I called Ricoh tech support, (this error was not listed in the manual). He told me to try to reseat the Black PCU and the color PCU, then run the auto color registration from the Menu. I tried this and my Color Registration Error went away.

Ricoh AP3800C sc389 error code


SC389 is a development gamma error in the magenta. There can be several causes for this error - a toner supply problem, incorrect toner used, a laser exposure problem etc. This is not likely to be an easy problem to fix unless you are experienced in such matters, so you may need to look for someone who can help out.

In user tools there is a maintance button press and then try color reg adjustment. If it doesn't sink color back in alignment it will say fail will need to call a tech . Could be anything from transfer unit bar that is shiny usually toward exit side cake with toner to laser failure

I am working with Leopard Mac OS X 10.5.8 and cannot find a printer driver for my RICOH Aficio 3800C. Please can you tell me where I can find it and how to install it.


You can get the AP3800C Mac driver directly from Ricoh here:

http://ricoh-usa.com/downloads/downloads.asp?tsn=Ricoh-USA&path=http://support.ricoh.com/bb/html/dr_ut_e/rc2/model/p3800c/p3800cen.htm

If this link doesn't work, follow these steps:

- Go to Ricoh-USA.com
- Click Downloads on the blue bar along the top
- Click "Download Ricoh Drivers & Software"
- Select the AP3800C from the drop-down list under Printers, B&W/Color/Gel and then click Go
- Choose your operating system from the list
- Download the two files listed under Mac OS X 10.5

Once the files are downloaded, you should be able to install the print driver normally.

Hope that helps!

LED reads color registration error


The black along the side of the paper is usually the black photoconductor , it also could be the fuser. If the color reg says can't be preformed it probly needs a new transfer belt. If the color reg completes and the colors still don't line up it might be the laser. It also could be dirty reg sensors.
