    1. press the yellow c button
    2. type 107
    3 press and hold the clear button until you enter service mode

Check the glass **** next to the area you slid the developer unit into. Chances are it is half covered with toner.

When you put the delveloper did you:

remove the cover to install it.

remove all of the old developer out of the machine.

Did you go into service mode and run sp 2-801.

    There is a TD sensor above your drum that gets calibrated. If is isn't performed it will cause copy quality issues.

    I'll find out why the command was shadowed. Do you know what buttons to push to get into service mode?

    According to Ricoh no copies should be ran on the machine until sp 2-801 is performed after the developer is changed. If there isn't a six digit number on the developer Make up a six digit number and press execute.

    If the copy quality continues, you may have to redo the developer process as well because the toner mixture could be messed up depending on how many copiers you ran.

    If you type a number on the numeric keypad it isn't registering? If it doesn't try touching the field and use the blue buttons to type a number in.

    One that is completed run sp 2805 as well.

    You can type in any six digit number and it will accept it.

    It could be the developer is contaminated if there were a lot of copies ran on it before the calibration. It probably can't be resolved unless it is done over from scratch.

How can I convert Ricoh development counter to pages

Best thing to do is contact Ricoh Services and Support (1-800-432-9787) for service. A Ricoh Tech/Engineer would need to go into Special Service to change the Accounting type preferences, as end-users shouldn't have access to this Special Service function. Additionally, once this change has been made, you cannot revert back; you can only change this setting once.

Ricoh aficio 1045 error e990 please help it

This is a software performance error; However it is most often caused by a deteriorating drum unit. There is no exact solution, but 9 times out of 10, a new drum unit, and fresh developer will solve it.
Outside of that, it is likely a board problem -possibly BICU

Service code SC546 on a Ricoh Aficio 1045

Try to go into service mode to reset the code...
Clear yellow botton
then press and hold the red stop botton till the display changes and then turn the main Power switch Off then back ON... You do not have to do any thing in service mode, just get to that display.... Don't change anything unless you know what you are doing. sc546 has to do with the fixing unit. You may be able to reset it.
