Replaced a hp 8150 with a ricoh 8200. When duplexing, ricoh starts on back side of paper rather than front. So when using 3 hole punch paper, punched side on a duplexed page is opposite side of a nonduplexed page.

That is the way duplexing works. Both sides of the page are read into memory and then the second page prints followed by the first page after the paper turns around.
Turn you paper stack over so the the 2nd. page prints correctly on the page and the first page should be fine. If it does not, please let me know and we can take some steps to look at the data going to the printer.

I realize when I say this that you will be a little skeptical but I will say it anyway . the Paper may be damp - do you notice any curling from your print if only printed on one side? this is the easiest way to test for damp paper- while the paper is damp the Electrical resistance is much higher than when its dry and this is what typically gives a Light copy however once the paper has been though the Very Hot fuser rollers to \'fix\' the first side, the paper has been force ably dried and so the second side is much Stronger in toner. try a new ream of paper and see if that helps
No duplex option is available. The only way to duplex is manual. Meaning you have to print the first side, then turn the page over and re-insert into the printer. Then print the 2nd page onto the back of the first page. The reason this is not an option and generally you do not want to duplex on these machines is that the ink will tend to bleed thru the paper when prining on both sides of a piece of paper. You may have to use a little thincker paper to prevent this.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
You have to print the first side then take those prints and put them back into the paper tray to print the second side (Manual Duplex). If this were a DN model it would have built in automatic duplexing and you cound select "duplex printing" from your print setup screen and the printer would print both sides automatically.
When you open the whole duplex unit you will see a very small metal tab with a screw, on the top right side on the machine. This activates the switch on the duplex unit.
Or with the duplex unit open you will se a small rectangle hole inside a switch, put a piece of paper or something to activate it, might got stuck.
This problem is very common on this machines.
only problem ive had with the earlier model not doing duplex was a sheet of paper in the duplexer bin . This is hard to find but if you pull out the paper tray and look in the space where the tray goes up above theres a lever which you can push and it releases the hidden duplex bin which stores the paper at half way through the double pass and if there is any paper in there then the printer will not duplex.
Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.
