Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier

2 Answers

I have a Ricoh Aficio 2018 PhotoCopier. Recently it ran out of toner. I reinserted the old cartridge which I had re-filled with toner (ricoh). However the off-side (non-copy side) of the sheets are dirty - have some dirty lines. What do I need to clean in order to remedy this.

Did you have this problem before you refilled the non-refillable cartridge? If not, you may have damaged the toner cartridge and like the above mentioned post you have a toner spill.

You could also have infected the machine with inferior toner. Ricoh machines are dual componet, meaning the developer and toner are matched to make consistant good quality copies.

Clean, clean and keep cleaning till you remove all of the toner from the unit and if that does not work, call an authorized dealer for professional repair. Was it worth saving $10 on refilling the cartridge?

You probably have a toner spill which has gone under the transfer roller. Open the right side of the machine and you will see a dark colored roller on the inside of the open part. Stydy it very carefully and you will see how to remove the roller including it's holder. be carefull of the springs, they love to escape. also watch as to how the bushings and gears are assembled so you get them back on properly. Clean any toner out from underneath the roller, replace the assembly and run 10 copies of a white piece of paper. this roller runs on the backside of the paper and can cause your problem. Hope this works for you. Check your paper tray as well as toner can migrate down into them.

error code 322 on a Ricoh/Gestener/Nashua/Aficio is usualy related to the laser unit/Polygon mirror motor, can you hear the motor starting up when you swith on the printer?it shoul sound something like an jet engine starting up, if you do not hear it then ask your local technician to replace the polygon mirror motor.

Price of print cartridge


Depending on the vendor, you can get the Ricoh 406464 toner for the Aficio SP 3410SF (regular cartridge, not the high yield one) for between $65 and $90 . Some sites to look at http://www.bluedogink.com/ricoh-406464.html and http://www.staples.com/Ricoh-406464-Black-Toner-Cartridge/product_332848 .

I hope this helps.

Installed new black toner but it still indicates it is empty and nothing will print!


Did you install a brand new cartridge? Or did you refill the old cartridge?
Ricoh has "smart chips" in the toner cartridges, and those tell the printer how much toner is used. If you refill the toner,the smart chip must BE REPLACED, the old chip will remain stuck at "empty".
Sucks, that Ricoh for you. That why that printer was $160 on Woot. LOL.

Try taking out the cartridge and reinstalling it. Was this a original ricoh toner cartridge or a el cheapo cartridge off the internet?
