How to start my Ricoh SP 420DN with a removed-missing yellow cartridge? Even if I just operate with the remaining (or even just the "Black" cartridge)? See details, below:

ON my Ricoh SP 420DN, my yellow cartridge broke, sending yellow toner free. I removed the cartridge, since it was leaking badly and the printer shut down and sent a goof message ("waste toner bottle full". I had to remove the cartridge, but how to start printing again with just black?

According to the maintenance manual, broken lines are caused by the "dithering" setting. Also there is an in depth color calibration process you can execute. Have you checked the PCU unit?

Here is the maintenance manual:

It sounds like the part the toner bottle slides under to lock in place is broken. you could try and fold some paper and tape it to the toner to hold it down.

Open the machine and to the right under the drum you should see the the black powder (toner) going down into container the right lower side  cover must come off. probably a service call will be needed

Error sc 305 ricoh aficio sp 420dn ?


Hi,

The SC 305 on a Ricoh SP 420DN is related to a AC bias charge error for the magenta color.
The machine sence there is a charge current that is less then
200 ?A is detected.

There are four reasons why this may happen.
• Defective charge roller
• Defective connectors
• Disconnected harness
• Defective high voltage power board 1

Follow this procedure, and see if that does the job.
1. Check the connectors.
2. Replace the PCU for magenta.
3. Replace the drum positioning plate.
4. Replace the high voltage power board 1.

Let me know if you need more info, part numbers and stuff like that.

How to reset replacement required print cartridge ricoh sp 3510/3500


"Replace Print Cartridge" remains in
display. Then a new AIO cartridge must
be installed. This feature is a safety
measure to prevent the used toner tank
from becoming full (there is no toner
overflow detection mechanism).

Installed new black toner but it still indicates it is empty and nothing will print!


Did you install a brand new cartridge? Or did you refill the old cartridge?
Ricoh has "smart chips" in the toner cartridges, and those tell the printer how much toner is used. If you refill the toner,the smart chip must BE REPLACED, the old chip will remain stuck at "empty".
Sucks, that Ricoh for you. That why that printer was $160 on Woot. LOL.
(Yea, I got suckered in too...)

Ricoh Aficio SP 420dn shows SC545 error code after power outage. I'd like to know if there is a way to reset. Thanks!


As NALDZ said, sometimes when the power drops out the thermistor will play up a little. Sometimes this can be caused by toner being caked up on the thermistor. But in most cases it can be reset easy enough.

if you walk up to the machine in COPY mode.
simply press.

(yellow clear), 1 , 0 , 7 (hold red stop button)
The screen will change, if you hold '#' on the keypad and press 'copy sp' on the touch screen you will be into ricoh service modes.

All you will have to do now to reset your error is simply switch the machine off at the main red switch below the plastic flap toward the bottom of the machine.

problem solved =]

Check the transfer roller. Its a black spongy roller in from of the drum. Make sure it is getting good contact. Did you shake the toner cartridge before you installed it?
