    It does not seem to stop the machine from printing. I thought it was just loud.

    I have the same problem. Is $399 the cheapest solution? Is there anything I can do myself to fix it?

My machine had the same problem. A service tech looked at my machine and pulled out the OPC Belt Drum Unit. The drum unit had a few issues: 1) jagged rips in it, something caused by running papers through that had staples or paperclips in them. So when the drum turns, it scrapes other parts and the machine sounds like its going to drop all its nuts and bolts--at least mine did!)! and 2) the spindles from the OPC unit has come loosened and fell off. The spindles and plastic cogs were found way at the bottom of the OPC Drum slot. This too was thought to have added to the rips in the drum.

I replaced the drum ($399 was the cheapest I could find) and the problem went away.

An expensive repair but for me it worked...

Ricoh SP C410 DN jam from bypass


If you can take off the bypass unit, two screws and a harness, you may be able to check the shaft, bushings and rollers. Sometimes removing jammed paper cause parts to get out of normal position. The grinding noise for example, gears not meshing together correctly. If it worked before the jam, then that is where I would look.

Xerox 6360dn, Tray 2 makes loud grinding noise when printing. Tray 1 is as quiet as a mouse. Replaced tray 2 with a known good tray and it still makes grinding noise.


In my experience, it was the registration roller causing the grinding noise. See http://my.brainshark.com/Phaser-6300-6350-6360-Grinding-Noise-795590408 for troubleshooting video.

Ricoh C21SF Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)


Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.

sounds to me you are using the "wrong driver" double check the driver and the OS you are using.

I would also turn the printer off and clear all print jobs from the print que and restart. After loading the new driver do a test page from the driver.

Not printing from tray 2.


Check that the paper pickup rollers forthat tray are not melted from excessive heat. Take out the paper tray and try to manually move the gears.
