  • Minimize filing space, postage costs and paper waste with standard automatic duplex printing.
  • Protect information—and your budget. Access to system functions and page volume limits can be set with User Restriction controls. Using Locked Print can help secure confidential information.

I have an SP C242SF which I've used with C310HE cartriges and has been running fine in a long time.
Just purchased a C252SF with a lot of C252SF cartriges.
Can I use the 310 catriges in the 252 and can I use the 252 cartriges in the 242?
Anders V on Jul 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your repeated business.
The Ricoh SP C252SF and SP C242SF toner cartridges are incompatible because the SP C252SF was engineered to use less energy than the SP C242SF, about 75% less in energy saver mode. The SP C252SF is compliant with the new, far more demanding, Energy Star standard that became effective in January 2014.
Does fax reception support Distinctive Ring?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Distinctive ring is not necessary for the device to distinguish between a fax and a call when FAX/TEL Automatic mode is enabled. It is explained on page 178 of the Operating Instructions (booklet) which is downloadable from www.Ricoh-USA.com/downloads.
Why can't I scan using a usb cable?
Robert B on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The SP C252SF is capable of scanning via a USB cable, so there is likely a setting or software issue between your computer and the MFP. In fact, the SP C252SF, like most current Ricoh MFP, can scan to a smart phone, tablet, or computer without any cable at all using Ricoh Smart Device Print&Scan. Please refer to the Operating Instructions (guide) beginning at page 132, "Basic Operation for Scan to USB", which is downloadable from www.Ricoh-USA.com/downloads.

how to scan and send by e-mail ?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For step by step guidance on setting up scan destinations, please refer to the operating instruction booklet beginning on page 122. It is downloadable from www.Ricoh-USA.com/downloads. The text is searchable making it very easy to find information.
