Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

Ricoh AC104 Multi-function Laser Open Heat Error displayed on LCD screen. Manual says error means problem with Fuser - unplug, replug and try again. If it does not go away call a service tech. Until I clear this error the printer is basically dead. I have tried power cycling both throught the switch and by unplugging. Left the printer unplugged for a month hoping that by making it forget date/time etc it would also reset this error. No go. Machine forgets date/time but error does not clear.

SOURCE: ML 3561ND engine fuser. low heat error??????

It's in the onboard computer system itself. This is a pre-set by the company that is designed to force you to service the unit, buy parts, etc., whether you need them or not. It is dirty pool I agree, but unless you know how to get into the machine's maintenance menu to re-set all those factory settings, you are pretty much screwed.

This is a nice printer, and what Samsung has done here is a travesty to our trash problem. It will turn out that it is much cheaper to just buy a new printer and toss the one you have, ergo, you are throwing away a perfectly good working printer all because the greedy foreign corporation knows "Stupid Americans" will buy more and more.

There is a way to get in, but it is VERY hard to do, but you are welcome to try:

You can enter the menu in this way:

Start up the machine with push in the buttons "online" and "cancel"
--You will see the message "Download mode press online key"
Press about 15 times the "menu" key
--You will see the message "Uncheck consumable mode"
Press about 15 times "menu" and 5 times "enter"
--You will see "Press access key"
Press a few enters
Press 3 times "cancel"
Go to the EDC mode
-- you will see "press access key"
Press "cancel"
Go to maintenance and initialize the parts you like to reset.

(sometimes you have to try a few times; don't wait to long between each of the steps)


Your printers are NOT broken. It is all in the design and how the likes of Samsung, Sanyo, Toshiba, etc., have figured out a way to screw Americans over, why, it's the favorite Euro/Asian pastime, see how many times you can get brainless Americans to buy your product over and over and over and over, on and on ad nauseum.

I wish you all much luck!

Now, here is what I did, and I do NOT recommend it:

I went to Comp USA and found the floor model. I wrote down the serial number off the back, went home and called Samsung with that serial number - and I was told "Your printer is still under warranty, we'll send someone to your home to repair or replace" How lovely of them. And replace it they did. Now, I haven't gotten the error message with this one, but if I do, I'll do the same thing again. Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice . . . . .

I am having CRU fuse error in my SCX 4216f. i changed cartridge but same error is there. please help


This is a "Fuser Error" -not cartridge. Unplug machine and then plug back in...if error returns, you have a problem with the Fuser (warm up error), and you need service.

Open heat error


From looking at the manual it looks as if you have a faulty thermistor. When warming up, it has to heat up to at least 60 degrees. If it stays lower then 60 degrees celsius for over 35 seconds and doesn't reach 60 within that time frame then that would cause the open heat error that is happening on your machine.
