Ricoh® Printer Toner Cartridges Error
I face toner cartridge errors in my Ricoh printer. Please suggest.
Sometimes people tend to change their toner cartridge when they face an error message saying toner to be low. This message is not always true. All you need to do is to pull the toner out of the machine and move it to and fro. In order to clean the toner, you need to print a few blank pages, and then wipe toner with a soft wet cloth. Refer to the printer manual for detailed cleaning instructions. Don't use any liquid cleaners inside the printer. If you find it difficult to clean the printer on your own, then you can call a professional or take it to a service center. Sometimes, performing your own maintenance to the printer might void the warranty of your Ricoh printer.
Ricoh printer toner cartridge errors may be due to various reasons. Some of these errors might frustrate you, especially when you need the printouts urgently.
Some of the errors are discussed below:
- Defective Toner Cartridge
- Improperly Seated Laser Cartridge
- Leaking Cartridge
- Improperly Loaded Paper
- Full Waste Bin
Defective Toner Cartridge
If you are facing the problem of blank pages, or thin and dark vertical lines on your printouts, then your toner might need a replacement. You should always go for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) toner cartridges in order to avoid further issues.
Improperly Seated Laser Cartridge
If your laser cartridge is not seated properly, you will face repetitive defects or horizontal lines on your printed documents. In that case you need to reposition your cartridge at its proper place.
The marks on the back of the printed page indicate that your printer cartridge is leaking. You need to check the problem for normal functioning of the printer.
Improperly Loaded Paper
Before loading the paper, you need to hold the stack of paper, and then tap it to make the stack even on all sides. Ensure that the paper adjusters on the tray are positioned in a right manner. Push the stack of paper into the tray until it stops. Never try to force the paper too far in the tray.
Full Waste Bin
If you are facing irregularly shaped spots or stains on your printouts, then your cartridge's waste bin might be full. In that case you need to clear the waste bin.
Toner produces a fine, black dust that can be harmful for your lungs, so you need to be careful while cleaning or replacing the cartridge.
