Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I need to test my Ricoh Aficio GX3050SFN, but the Magenta is empty. Is there any way around it?

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.

SOURCE: Canon MP520 cartridge swap and ink refill

Canon MP520 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.

SOURCE: printer wont do anything ricoh aficio 1515 pcl 6

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.

Try unpluging your printer for a few minutes, turning it back on and printing a test page. This worked for me.

SOURCE: Oki C3300 toner replace, where do I stick the new chip

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.

SOURCE: Toner Cart chip reset for Ricoh Aficeo sp c400dn

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).

Error sc 305 ricoh aficio sp 420dn ?

Hi,

The SC 305 on a Ricoh SP 420DN is related to a AC bias charge error for the magenta color.
The machine sence there is a charge current that is less then
200 ?A is detected.

There are four reasons why this may happen.
• Defective charge roller
• Defective connectors
• Disconnected harness
• Defective high voltage power board 1

Follow this procedure, and see if that does the job.
1. Check the connectors.
2. Replace the PCU for magenta.
3. Replace the drum positioning plate.
4. Replace the high voltage power board 1.

Let me know if you need more info, part numbers and stuff like that.

Add black toner but still empty

Is it a genuine Ricoh Toner or a equivalent refill, if it is the latter then my machine would say empty when actually full. Just keep on using the machine, and have another toner on stand by.
If its a genuine Ricoh toner suggest the machine needs a clean around where the built in (toner) chip is located.

What does trouble code "SC

Hello Ryan,
It means your device went thru a self check in an effort maintain optimum copy quality. Your device could not get Magenta (pink/red) to even get close to the target values for that color. The most likely cause (and we hope so) is the Magenta development unit is toast. Replace it. But of course there are a myriad of other fun causes. As a sidebar, you might want to consider replacing yellow and cyan at the same time as they tend to croak at pretty much the same time. You have a quite reliable device as a rule. It's worth the cost. Take care. Let fixya know I helped ya please. SPINAL

Ricoh Aficio 1232c REFILL

You can't use any other brand of color toner to refill the AF1232, you'll have all kinds of issues. They do have compatible toners (generic) for that model but highly recommend OEM.

Installed new black toner but it still indicates it is empty and nothing will print!

Did you install a brand new cartridge? Or did you refill the old cartridge?
Ricoh has "smart chips" in the toner cartridges, and those tell the printer how much toner is used. If you refill the toner,the smart chip must BE REPLACED, the old chip will remain stuck at "empty".
Sucks, that Ricoh for you. That why that printer was $160 on Woot. LOL.
(Yea, I got suckered in too...)
