Add toner ricoh aficio 2045
Toner supply is controlled with readings from TD sensor on the developing unit
and the I.D sensor above the drum by default.
These are low cost parts and easy to change.
(The TD sensor on this model have been known to fluctuate back and forth
by a fair margin so is a good place to start).
You could also try stripping down and cleaning out the toner hopper.
Check the four mylars are present and the grabber is opening wide enough
to grab the toner bottle nozzle successfully.
Check the toner hopper exit slider is opening fully when the PCU is
I had one of these 'add toner' faults today and it was the toner hopper
all clogged up inside.
The side bit where the toner drops down had hardened clumps of toner
stuck around the side entrance mylar and the exit hole.
Check also the toner motor. I have seen these fail. Run
simulation output check for toner motor. I would remove the toner supply
unit and hold the motor when you run this simulation. Sometimes the motor
turns but does not have enough torgue to turn the toner supply unit.

Add toner always
Could be a lot of things. start with toner hopper is bottle turning is end cap in toner bottle being pull out when toner handle is lower is side door open and dose toner fall out when bottle is turning. then next is developer powder how many copies on it. might be time to replace powder. or could be gears broken on developer unit. I would say if you not mechanical incline call tech.

FUNCTION PROBLEM SC681-19 FOR RICHO SP C830DN
This is an error code for the RFID which is the toner bottle chip on the the toner bottles. I would suggest you check the toner cartridges for any damaged or disconnected chips, have you changed to non ricoh toners as this can sometimes cause a problem. Check each bottle if you have any old empty bottles insert one of these into corresponding colour slot and you can then see which bottle is causing the error. Failing this the board will need to be changed. I have had errors on non ricoh bottles. you can also vac out the slot to clear spilt toner. hope this helps
