Ricoh 4430 - I replace the toner with several different toners, but it keeps telling me to replace the toner...

Of course I tried to turn the printer off and then on again. I have checked the sensor and it seems to be ok. The toner cartridges do not seem to be damaged. We are basically at the point of frustration where we will get a different printer, but obviously never again Ricoh.

SOURCE: Ricoh CL3000 Laser Replace Waste toner

Couple of things to try: - If you just emptied the waste cartridge then you have to take the bottle back out and clean the insides as well. The sensor sees the toner on the walls and still thinks it?s full. FYI as typical the manufacturer recommends replacing the bottle with a brand new one. - If not that then you may have toner covering the optical sensor. Try blowing the area where the waste bottle attaches to the printer with canned air. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Con el cartucho instalado en su posición, tiramos de él para arriba y sacamos todo el alojamiento del mismo. En la parte derecha del mismo hay un cuadradito con una ventanilla de plástico que debe estar totalmente liberada. El problema es que ésta a veces se queda medio tapada y el sensor no detecta el cartucho. Levantar ese plástico hacia arriba todo lo que se pueda ( con algo que tenga punta, un boli por ejemplo) y volver a poner todo el alojamiento en su sitio. Suele funcionar a la primera, y si no, apagar y encender de nuevo la impresora.

SOURCE: Toner Sensor Error for Cyan and Toner Out for Black

First, I wouldn't worry about the "K toner out", it might finally disappear once you get rid of the Cyan problem, if indeed you replaced the black toner for a new and healthy one.

Make sure that the cyan toner cartridge is securely fitted in it's drum unit, and the "knob" that opens the toner cartridge is in fully open position. Sometimes when manipulating inside the printer the "knob" might get moved a bit.

Generally, the toner cartridge sensor is connected via the drum unit, so usually the problem is with proper seating of the drum unit and good electrical contact between the metal fields on the sides of the drum unit and contacts protruding inside the printer. Cleaning both of any residue might help.

Once I had a defective toner cartridge, that caused such problem, but it was the contact between the toner cartridge and the drum that was broken. You have to experiment a bit.
I'm pretty sure in this model it is possible to swap two units - if you swap for example cyan with magenta, and observe if the error moves from cyan to magenta or not, you can draw conclusions if the problem is with the toner/drum, or with the printer not seeing the cartridge for some reason (sensor inputs killed by static electricity for example).

SOURCE: I have attempted to install 3 different black

The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.

Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

My ricoh mpc 2500 keep saying add black toner whereas there is toner in the toner bottle


If asking for black toner did you change rt toner pump should been one behind the black dev unit. Sometimes when you change it might have to open and close front door. A couple of times make sure you leave it open long enough that it think you change bottle

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.

Ricoh CL4000DN. I recharged the magenta toner using the OEM cartridge. I replaced the chip as instructed and all elements snapped together without difficulty. However, now there is a "check toner...


Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.

My broher 5250DN keeps showing toner needed, but i've replaced it


I just had the same problem. We have several of these in our office, but switching toner cartridges made no difference. Then I saw this site: http://www.oasis-imaging.com/images/pdf/cart_inst/TN580.pdf

I did steps 14-16, which takes 5-10 minutes. I put the toner back in the printer, turned it on, and it works perfectly now. Give that a try!

Ricoh SP C410DN


Unfortunately the newer ricoh equipment may include a chip like the HP toner. This allows the printer to track the usage so the printer can "intelligently" determine how much toner remains in the bottle. The chip overides all other factors on the remaining toner. Hence, if the chip "thinks" that the toner bottle has little or no toner left, it will give you a false toner low message. Presently, you can only replace the toner with a new bottle.

Ricoh 1018d won't add toner after installing toner bottle.


the part numbers are different for each toner from ricoh, Lanier, Savin and Gestetner. From what I recall is the bottles are different, check the old bottle vs new. Also if the machine had run very low you may have to open and close the fron cover several times, this intiates a toner feed program.
