Question about Ricoh Aficio 1515MF All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

I have several of these ricoh 1515 copiers all working fine and then posting a need photocunductor error. Is this some preset error that comes after so many copies like HP got sued for or is the photocunductor actually bad ? Seems suspicious to me. Is there a way to reset the counter so this thing will go back to working until the part really needs to be changed ?

Enter service mode as follows:

then hold "Clear/Stop" for 2-3 seconds. 1 Copy SP
5 Mode
912 PCU ALARM COUNTER
Default 60K or 45K just input Zero "0" this will deactivate the PCU counter.

Hi, the "Replace Photoconductor" message does come up after a preset number of copies, typically about 60,000. The photoconductor will still continue to work fine, and even with the message displayed the copier should run like normal. The message will keep flashing until you replace the photoconductor, and then it will automatically detect the new unit and the message will disappear.
