Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies
Also I have Magenta refill, but not the same quality, is there anything that could go wrong. I also want to buy chip, are chips all the same for these printers or is there for each color it's own? If I buy chip reset device, does it work?
Just be sure to use a already tested by other a refill. surf on the net and check what other people say about the refill brand. with some refill is ok and will work normal. but with some does not work. its a risk.

multifunctional device - deactivation of the ink level counter
1. You can do it only when the printer counter releases the warning message - "the ink cartridge is nearly empty" = yellow warning mark
2. You have to do this procedure four times - for every cartridge one times
3. At the screen you will see three warning messages
- for the first one press "OK"
- for the second and third one press "Yes"
4. The fourth message tells you that you can do the ink level counter deactivation by pressing the "Stop/Reset" button (7) for more than 5 seconds. Do it.
Later you can see another type of warning message at the screen:
In this case you can not follow the previous procedure - there will not be any other warning messages.
Just follow the message on the screen and press the "OK" button (5) and you can print.
Unfortunately - I do not know for how long time it works.
You have to manualy check the ink level and refill (change) the cartridge before it is completely empty! You might brake your warranty!
When you insert the new original ink cartridge, the counter will work properly again.

The first thing to try is to turn the machine off, then back on at the red "main power" switch located on the left side of the machine. If the code returns it is indicative of firmware problems or a loose connection.
At this point I would seriously recommend getting a service tech to come out. However, if you want, you can take off the back cover (MAKE SURE THE POWER CORD IS UNPLUGED) and double check all of the connections by (GENTLY) pressing them into their connections. Hope this helps. Let me know.

On the top left hand side of the cartridge, usually where the letter representing the colour of the toner (in your case M for Magenta) appears, there is a small removable section, about 15mm by 20 mm in size. Prise this open with your finger nail or small screwdriver. Remove the old chip and insert the new one in here.

I believe you will need to purchase and install a reset chip. You can find them for the Ricoh C410 here at www.cfriends.com (that links straight tothe ricoh page - but if you need to search, type in "c410" into the search field on their site).
