Dev. initialize should only be done when replacing dev.otherwise it will not add the correct amount of toner to the dev.Replace developer and run sim.2-801 in service mode.

    Sp mode 5-990 (SMC Data Lists).This will print out all the settings with the default.Hope that helps!

  • Hadley Hudson Jul 20, 2008

    First,I forgot to have you check something.When you get a new toner it comes with a black cap.Remove cap and under cap you will see a plug under where you took off the cap.If old bottle is missing the plug it is stuck in toner hopper blocking the toner from going in!If so,remove plug and stick it back on top of toner bottle, then reinstall toner,run 40 blank copies to see if darker.Now,if not stick a folded piece of paper in door interlock(hole inside front lelf)run 20 copies and see if toner bottle turns.This is key because if it does not turn it's not adding toner.By the way,messy toner hopper is normal. Let me know!

  • Hadley Hudson Jul 21, 2008

    yeah tenkz-meaning plug was the problem?

  • Hadley Hudson Jul 21, 2008

    Ok. Pull toner hopper all the way out of the copier.There is a small black plastic piece on the steel slide of the left side of the hopper,pop it off to pull hopper all the way out.Run 40 to 50 copies without hopper and check drum.This will pull toner out of the developer and de-tone the machine.Stop there and let me know.

  • Hadley Hudson Aug 05, 2008

    Inside the right door on the metal frame is a tag with the make,model and year.I beleive it came out in 1998.

  • Hadley Hudson Aug 06, 2008

    Sorry, that's the only place I know of to look and it should be there.My service manual says the machine was introduced in 1998.

Afficio450 replace new developer unit wat procedure to be follow?


No, the 450 is just one of those machines that seem to have PCQ no matter what you do. Given light copies, I'd replace the drum for sure and make sure your ID sensor isn't covered with toner. Dust covered optics will also cause light copies on this model.

Afficio 450 olridy change developer but the copy is stil faded


There are two service codes that you need to run 2801 and 2805 after you put the developer in the machine.

Press the yellow button on the copier. press 107 on the keyboard. Press and hold the clear button. Then run the service codes.

You have to run the codes first after changing the developer. You might have to replace the developer again to get the correct mixture.

Afficio 450 copy faded in some area...


If the image is good in parts, but light in others it is most often toner build up on the laser exposure glass which can be easily -but also VERY CAREFULLYremoved. If you lift the green handle for the toner bottle, you should see a narrow piece of glass protruding just underneath. You can grasp it with you fingers and slide it out for cleaning. Sometimes these have been removed (or broken) so they are not there. If the machine is also a printer, you should see much improvement (if this was the cause). If regular copying is still light in areas, then you may want to remove the copier glass - 2 screws on left scale, and 3 screws on rear scale (POWER OFF ON MACHINE), remove glass and clean with glass cleaner, then slide scanner to the left and clean the mirrors.
Hope this helps.

Look into replacing the developer in your copier. It has to be replaced every 125,000 cycles.

Auto setting. If you are getting light copies, you might need the developer replaced as well.

Developer....


When developer goes bad you use more toner for one thing, but the main sign is a gray background in your copy. The print should be black but appears to be gray. The ricoh 350/450 was always noted to leak toner and developer as it runs. Check your machine and see if you see any small piles of toner, which also has developer in it, in the machine. Ther are small seals made of felt that need to be replaced if you have this problem. These seals rub against the drum sides....Good luck.

Fuser..?? afficio 450


The fuser probably will not help. I think you probably will need a PCU, and a service call.
