    It does not seem to stop the machine from printing. I thought it was just loud.

    I have the same problem. Is $399 the cheapest solution? Is there anything I can do myself to fix it?

My machine had the same problem. A service tech looked at my machine and pulled out the OPC Belt Drum Unit. The drum unit had a few issues: 1) jagged rips in it, something caused by running papers through that had staples or paperclips in them. So when the drum turns, it scrapes other parts and the machine sounds like its going to drop all its nuts and bolts--at least mine did!)! and 2) the spindles from the OPC unit has come loosened and fell off. The spindles and plastic cogs were found way at the bottom of the OPC Drum slot. This too was thought to have added to the rips in the drum.

I replaced the drum ($399 was the cheapest I could find) and the problem went away.

An expensive repair but for me it worked...

Ricoh SP C410 DN jam from bypass


If you can take off the bypass unit, two screws and a harness, you may be able to check the shaft, bushings and rollers. Sometimes removing jammed paper cause parts to get out of normal position. The grinding noise for example, gears not meshing together correctly. If it worked before the jam, then that is where I would look.

How can I check the color counter page for Ricoh Aficio SP C210SF?


The instructions for getting the page count for the C210SF should be the same as for the C231SF:

- Press User Tools.
- Scroll down until you see Reports Print.
- Press OK.
- Scroll down to either Configuration Page (2 pages long, prints in black and white) or Maintenance Page (1 page long, prints in color).
- Press OK.

Both the configuration page and the maintenance page will show the page counts. For page count instructions on other models of copiers or printers, check out ConfigPages.Blogspot.com.

Ricoh C21SF Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)


Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.

sounds to me you are using the "wrong driver" double check the driver and the OS you are using.

I would also turn the printer off and clear all print jobs from the print que and restart. After loading the new driver do a test page from the driver.
