Was it making clear copies before the add toner message? Did you just install a new cart? if so, pull out the toner hopper, remove the toner cart and look into the hopper itsself and make sure the cap from the old toner cart can be still stuck in place.

The developer should probably be changed in it. the cartridge should be inspected as well. Was there any toner spills?

Toner leaking and low quality copy

I would check the transferbelt/wastebox/cleaning unit to see if it is full or have a problem with cleaning.
If it is full it will make a soundt as some toner is forced out of the wastebox. I've seen a few examples of cleaning blades that does not clean smoothly too. When the blade moves toner scatters.
It it is full, empty the wastebox and change the cleanin blade.

If not, check the drum and the drum cleaning. I've had a "jumping" cleaning blade on the drum too, also resulting in toner scattering inside the machine. It that is the case, the blade must be changed.

In order to make this machine run kind of OK, you need to keep it super clean, change developer and other parts at least as often as Ricoh says in the service manual.
Make sure you have the latest firmware model, and the right toner.

It is a machine that runs dirty, and based on the POS Adonis series of machines from Ricoh.
For other viewers here, stay away from the Ricoh Aficio 350/450, 1035/45, 2035/45 and newer models like the MP 3500/4500.

You will notice companies that sell copiers from differente brands often have decided not to sell this model from Ricoh, and just choose a different make/brand as their machines (in this segment) are better.

How to clear toner alert

open the front door and close again, wait for toner to load.
if this problem persist,open the front door and remove toner unit,use a flat screw driver to press on the door sensor and check if the toner motor is working properly.
if the motor is in good condtion,service the toner unit and make sure that the unit is toner free and insert new toner.
if this condition persist, enter the sp mode and clear all memory by sp 5801 for mp5ooo, aficio 1035-4545,645,2035,2045,235,735 or sp801 for 1022,1027,1505 and restart the machine.

Used toner bottle is full

I'm going to assume you typed the model wrong, and that it is a 1035 like the header states. If this is the case, the used toner on these is inside the transfer belt unit.
Open the duplex unit if equipped, then open up the right-side door. Attached to the door is the transfer belt unit, as see below:
602d8058-7b67-4449-895f-e01b266fd371.jpgLift the lever as shown, then lift unit out of machine. There is a panel with 6 screws near the bottom of the unit, remove all 6 screws and remove the cover. Be very careful, this thing is going to be FULL of used toner, and will make one HUGE mess if not disposed of properly. Once emptied, put cover back on, re-install unit, close doors, and you should be good to go.

SC326 is a laser synch detect error. The jamming is probably just because of the code popping up and the machine shutting down. 9 times out of 10 the cause of an SC326 is toner dust buildup on the laser optics. It is either that or possibly a laser unit (LD Unit) failure. The power to the LD unit flows thru the front door switches and I have seen those go bad and cut or reduce power to the LD unit which will cause the same code. I would get a Ricoh tech out to clean the laser optics. This is especially true if you open the fron door and there is toner dusting around the toner cartridge/DV unit area.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

1035 ricoh aficio printer with error code 322

Yes, the code is caused by toner getting into the laser unit. The laser unit likely only needs to be cleaned out. To do so, turn the machine of with the red rocker switch on left side of the machine. You will need to remove the front cover and the brown cover behind it. The mechanical counter is plugged into the brown cover so be careful not to damage the wires. The laser unit is the black plastic case you will see behind the brown cover. Be sure to remove the necessary screws and connectors. Be extra careful of the ribbon cable, it kinks easily and the contacts are easily damaged. The Laser unit will slide out, and you can remove the screws holding the top cover on. After removal, clean the interior of the case and mirrors. Do not use any liquid to clean it, preferrabley canned air and a lint free cloth. After cleaning, reassemble, turn the machine back on, and test.

Not sure what SC818 is as not in my manuals please try the following.

Entering and Exiting SP mode
1. Press the Clear Mode key.
2. Use the keypad to enter “107”.
3. Hold down Clear/Stop for at least 3 seconds.
4. Enter the Service Mode.
To enter the Normal Service Mode:
Copy SP On the touch-panel, press Copy SP.

Once in the service mode turn the main switch off located on the left hand side of the machine wait 5-10 seconds then switch back on. This should get the machine working. Hope this helps

Thanks J
