20 Most Recent Ricoh Aficio IS01 Flatbed Scanner Questions & Answers

The Ricoh IS01 uses a SCSI 2 (50 pin) interface. It should look like the one here: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-03564-SCSI-2-Cable/dp/B000051312 . There are SCSI to USB converters but I'm not sure if you need a specific version. (Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer so there were few interfaces that required a special connection.)

Depending on your computer's OS, there may be other issues. (Some may not be compatible with Windows Vista or Win7, for example.) Drivers for some OS versions are available here: http://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/downloads.aspx . Search for the IS01 (no other information is needed)

I hope this helps.

These are excellent and well built products with a very long high volume capability and unless in a very dirty environment should not need cleaning of internal optics or assemblies until after about 3 years or more. However the document feeder can get dirty, and the rollers and guides should be cleaned with a mild solution of soapy water, (a few drops of Palmolive Liquid Dish Soap are best); use a good glass cleaner on the scan class and also on the narrow glass view area used for the auto feeding copies. If it does not jam multiple stacks of copies up to about 40 pages of 20 pound bond, it is running just fine. Let me know if you have any further details needed.

Good Luck!

Possible wear and tear. The image path movement must match the scan head one has to be 'stationery' in relation to the other- It seems that one element is slowing down. Is there a rate of travel adjustment to be made - check your manual

SC-990 - Communication problem between BICU and input output board or software performance error.

I would suggest contacting Ricoh customer service.

From things I have read about this error code, it could be happening because of using compatible sublimation inks which is causing this problem.
