Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier

1 Answer

Grey paper on copy.

I have an Afacio 350e copier. This unit has worked very well and have had minimal problems. Now when I print a copy, the paper comes out grey and it has a few spots on the paper.

Is there a fix for this problem that I can do? To get a copy repair person out here would be expensive.

Unfortunately this is not a fix yourself problem.
1- seperation could be bad
2-bad toner or developer
3- could be as easy as cleaning the mirrors
try to find a tech that works on the side, or freelances for no more than $40-75 depending on the complexity.

How do I solve a problem with my Printer Ricoh Afacio 1515MF, it says check the instructions in the right cover yet there's no paper jam.


Usually theres a dirty sensor. Remove the drum and toner hopper then give it a blow with a blower. If you know how to remove the fusing unit, you will find two sensors on it, clean them. Otherwise it's the paper feed clutch.

Hi have a lanier copier model 6725. When I make copies it makes the copy and then also prints grey across the entire copy. Looks like it is printing old ghost copies...how can I fix this


Hello!
If you say that you see old ghodt copies the problem is with the Fuser Roller in the Fusing Unit.
If this is right i advise you to call a Tech (if you do not have the skills to change it)

See you!

My ricoh aficio 350e printer has a brand new cartridge but it still printing with light dark area's where words should be solid. This is only on the black color.


The pcu, charge roller and possibly the developer needs to be replaced. Also, the glass on the laser unit could be dirty with toner - ck this first.

Printing black on paper


Some of these machines will allow you to printe a grey scale test copy.
This will readjust the fax machine back to a nominal mode.
Not knowing how old or how long the machine has been serviced, background can be caused by dirty optics somewhere in the machine.
A remanufactured drum unit can cause this type of problem, (defective unit)
Competitive toner in the toner unit can cause poor copy quality.
Reinstall the old cartrige and see if the problem changes.
Not knowing if the machine has a seperate drum unit and developer housing, it would be hard to answer anything else.

Wrench icon 350e


The HDD control board does not generate any response when the IPU sends a
read/write signal to the MSU.
• Software defective
• Poor connection between BICU and MSU
• HDD defective.
Try reset the software; press the keys numeral and point simultaneously by but of 10 seconds, the machine is extinguished and returned to ignite. If it does not react to this it can be damaged the hard disk changes it.

Copier stops after 35 copies when using finisher


This is due to the output tray you sre using only having a small capapcity sensor what you should do is set it to come out from the finisher unit to the lower tray as this holds more sheets you can check this by looking at the output tray and when it asks you to remove paper see if the top pages are resting on the paper sensor in the tray. good luck A

Dark border one side of paper


This maybe your cleaning blade, your drum or the fuser unit....the best way to find out is to make a copy a to stop it before it's getting to the fuser unit ( that's the thing very hot). If you see your border it's your cleaning or drum...But when you replace a drum you must replace the cleaning blade to !


Hope it help !

Grey Band/lines across page


your problem could be one of many things first try stoping the copy half way in the machine. to do this open the front door and cheat the door switch with some folded up paper or use a flat screw driver to bypass the switch. make a copy and watch the paper when in goes into the drum and starts to come out like 3 inches pull the screw driver or paper out of the switch. carefully pull the paper out from the machine and see if the image is ok. if the marks are there the problem is with the drum. if the image is clear and there is no marks then open the left door on the copier and inspect the rollers in the heat unit. to do this open the left door the front door has to be open to do this. there is a little green lever on the right side pull this down and look at the 2 roller if you see marks on the top roller or dirt on the lower roller this is your problem. also check the miliage reading on the drum if there is a sticker and check the meter on the machine the drum is rated for 55,000 copies.
