Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Ricoh CL7100 printer. It has for some time displayed a red error lamp and a message "replace fuser oil unit (type g)" I was advised a while ago that I could continue to use printer (and have done) until it stopped. It has now. I assume that the "fuser oil unit (type G)" is different from the fuser oil cartridge. Do I need a separate Unit - if so where can I get one? I have a cartridge ordered - interestingly the box makes reference to "type G" on it. Are they one and the same or is the unit the large thing which can be lifted out into which the cartridge fits. Help?

SOURCE: Imaging Unit Missing Error

Hi, I had the same problem. The following Cause and solution may help you fix your machine.

All refereces to left and right are facing the front of the machine as if for normal use.
The cause is due to the connector on thtop left rear of the imaging unit. this connector is mated with a coresponding, retractable connector in the body of the machine. When you open the cover over the top of the imaging unit, this connector retracts back into the body of the machine and when you close the lid it should re-engage with the imaging unit, The problem is that it dosen;t reconnect. I have asumed that it is due wear in the connector operating mechanism. This solution was effective for my printer.

Switch Off!!!
remove the topcover (after removing the colour catridges )and. remove the left hand side panel. You will see a nylon gear mechanism. Sqeeze together the nylon clip inthe centre of the gear wheel, and pull the gear about halfway off. This should allow you to move the vertical geared bar up 1 notch. .Push the gear wheel back on and try the machine to see if it works ok. All covers will need to be closed and if it works ok , reassemle the machine. Job done -about 10 to 15 mins. It tookme alot longer to find it,so some feedback would be appreciated.

SOURCE: Ricoh Aficio 2238c: Fuser Oil Unit

you really can not refill the bottle but I would recommend two things. One find a fuser oil unit on ebay and order it quickly. Next hit the yellow clear modes button, then hit the numbers 1 0 7 , then hold the red clear stop button till the display panel changes. hit copy sp, select 7 data log. now use the page down arrows located in the middle of the disply till you see 7804 push it then go to #10 oil supply and hit execute. this will reset the oil counter and allow you to use the machine till you get the new unit.

SOURCE: Error code sc 552 on Ricoh CL7100

To clear any code on a Ricoh / Savin copier that will no reset by turning the power off / on you need to first enter the service program mode. This is a safety feature installed when repeated resets of some codes could cause damage to the machine or possible fire hazard. Most of the time these codes deal with the fusing unit. The fusing units operate at around 180 degrees celcius. Thats pretty near the point where paper catches fire so you see the need for safety there. Anyway, you can sometimes get a false fuser code if the room is cold in the morning when you first power up the copier and the machine takes longer than normal to reach operating temp. Another reason can be that maybe you didn't push the fuser back in good enough after clearing a jam and the electrical contacts did not make good contact. In these instances you can clear the code and go back to copying. Should the code come back after doing one of these resets then it means there is a bigger problem with your fuser and you need to call for a service visit to have the problem fixed.

Here is the reset for it:

1. Press the Clear Modes (yellow on most machines)
2. Press the numbers 1,0,7
3. Press and hold the Clear / Stop (red on most machines)

after a few seconds on machines with an LCD display screen you should see the screen change to display "SP mode" with a few selections. On older or smaller machines without an LDC display screen you should see a flashing "0" on the panel. This lets the machine know its ok to reset the code. Do not make any selections in this mode. SP mode if for making electrical adjustments to the copier and taking the machine out of spec can cause a lot of problems for you. Once you enter the SP mode you just need to turn the machine off / on. (make sure you do so with the main switch that you have to rock back and forth and not the button that just gets pressed to shut down the machine, the main rocker switch is often located on the front door or on the left side of the machine, sometimes covered by a swinging cover you have to lift first)

If you do not hit the keys in the right order, the machine will not go into SP mode. You can just start over with step one untill you get into SP mode.

After doing this and the code resets but then comes back again or gives you another code, you'll have to place that service call. If not then happy copying to you.

I have been advised of an error message on an Aficio 3800 series printer. I am told they need an 'Oil Fuser unit ' but as far as I can see the machine uses a Fuser Unit OR an 'Oil Supply...


The fuser uses an oil supply unit, which is changed separately from the fuser itself. The fuser oil supply unit (400549) is what is required.

You will find the manuals and other sueful details about this printer here.

What is replace color cpu toner?


Could the message have been "Replace color PCU (Type A)"? In that case, you need to replace all three color photoconductor units (order Printer Maintenance Kit Type 7100A).

I do not know of any Replace CPU error messages. I hope this helps.
