Did you remove the tape from the toner bottle when you installed it? It may just be looking to add toner back to the developer, to bring it back to the set level of toner? See if it stops

How do i fix problem Add Toner

The Ricoh has toner and developer. When the developer is depleted it can not get to the right density when toner is added so the machine keeps saying to add toner. You need to clean out the developer unit and put in new developer. Depending upon your model you may need to install a drum and blade too. Ricoh technicians are trained to dissemble the unit and just replace the parts needed instead of getting a whole drum/developer unit. If you live in Southeast Florida Advanced business computers is a great source for help. Computer network repair, printer and copier maintenance repairs, leasing and supplies.

Your copier may need developer if the cycle count is over 150,000 copies. Once that is added to the toner the Toner/Developer sensor should be calibrated and should work fine.

Sometimes the drum can create light copies if it was exposed to light from being out of the machine or leaving the door open too long on the side of the machine letting light in.

Added new toner but light won't go off. Ricoh FT 3713

The TD sensor got disconnected or is broken, the copier needs service because it's not detecting that it actually has enough toner inside to copy.

Did you run the copier with out adding toner for awhile? If so, it is going to have to catch up with the toner level it had before or it may need a developer change. The toner level may be to low to regain it's amout of toner again. It may be a coastly venture with running the copier with out toner.. Good Luck...
