Cartridge exchange

If the printer announce " low ink" please do not exchange cartridges
until you see arrow above concrete color ( see picture )



Cleaning of print heads / nozzles

Ricoh printers with gel ink are (from our experience) reliable / fast / ink doesnt dry inside of nozzles, anyhow if some stripe or blurred colors appear on your printout - please perform head cleaning

PATH :  Printer Properties / Printing Preferences / Maintenance /  Head cleaning    
.. select head 1 or head 2 ( according to color which makes problem )

Please note !
Head cleaning consumes ink, so perform cleaning only it is really necessary, otherwise you waste with ink ( cartridges )  and you fill ink collector




Printer handling

If you are using printer for some time, please keep in mind that your printer performs automatic maintenance and you have residual ink at ink collector.
If you have to move with the printer, make sure
the printer is not turned "upside down" because residual ink may contaminate the inside of the printer.
