    Howdy! The Ricoh Aficio CL2000n is not using any of the magenta toner. It is printing with the other colors, just not red. Have tried another magenta cartridge, but that did not help. I have been told I need to replace a board, but if I could just get the schematic I could sort it out. I think it is most likely a motor or the motor controlling circuit for the magenta toner cartridge that have failed. Any help you could give I would greatly appreciate! Thank you for your reply! Dan

I will have a look and see if i have the schematic for you , it could also be one of the development clutches that is slipping and not pulling forward , if you open the front door were you install the cartridges you will see there is a switch on the right hand side , stick like a screwdriver in there to jippo the door , then make a copy and see if the magenta dev init engages(meaning that it pulls all of the colours forward to the opc belt when making a copy , if magenta is not pulled you will know it is either the clutch or the board then .

Cl2000n Ricoh can't reset add toner cyan in display

Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
