You need to contact the manufacturer to purchase another ink collection tank and replace it. I am not sure if they will give you instructions on how to remove and replace it yourself, but its worth a shot. Depending on the price of the tank, it may be cheaper to buy another printer?

I need ink collector for Ricoh S/N is MP CW 2200 SP

If you are talking about the "Toner Collection Bottle", this can be removed and emptied out. Once you re-install the bottle and close the door the machine will reset and normal operation can continue.

Reset wate tank ricoh sg2100n

hi there i have a solution for resetting the wast ink tank you don't need to buy a new tank every time.

1) carefully pry off the top of the tank
2) clean the pads from all the ink
3) hold the up and down keys on the printer while on for about 5 seconds then release and quickly hit the hash key.
this should bring up the service menu

4) move up or down until you see engine maintenance and hit hash
5) enter following code 3008003 the hit hash then hit exec with hash and ok
6) hit the back arrow to the previous screen with the code then hit the down arrow it should now read 3008004
7) repeat step 6
8) hit the back key until you see engine maintenance again the hit down and select end.

now turn off your printer then turn it back on again and your wast tank should now show as empty.

GX5050N. Printer turns on. Then 5 seconds later, green light flashes and printer turns off.

I am trying to solve this problem right now. Ricoh says it is mostlikely a short in the print head which unfortunately means trash the printer. If your printer has a full ink collector you can reset it. go to and look at tech tips it is very simple.

I get a message that says ink collector almost full. I cleaned it and i replace it. But i got always the message :"inkcollector is not set. replace inkcollector". What have to do ?

After you replace the ink collector there is a counter you have to reset it to tell the printer that you are inserting a new collector

Ink collector almost full

100% agreed with rrrdddrrrddd. In addition:
Go to Menu->System->INK CU Replace. You will get a warning that overflow may occur(and it's really a messy job), reset the counter and everything should be OK.
