can you airprint? and does it have to be enabled
Marilyn R on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Marilyn,

The MP C3503 does support airprint. Both your laptop and the Ricoh printer will have to be on the same Wi-Fi network for this to work. We recommend you download the free RICOH Smart Device Print&Scan app for the most seamless mobile printing experience.
https://www.ricoh.com/software/printandscan/

*Please note, you will need to get Postscript added to the machine if you do not already have it. This allows for communication between your Ricoh equipment and Mac devices.

Additionally, our Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE) add on might be of interest to you. It allows you to print and scan documents directly into/from our secure cloud repository (in addition to options like Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote and more). Check it out here: http://ricoh-cloud.com/

Thank you for your question. For additional questions, please contact your Ricoh representative or local Ricoh dealer (http://dealer.Ricoh-USA.com) to learn more.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN THE STATUS INDICATOR LIGHT IS PURPLE?
Peggy W on Jan 28, 2016
How can I print pure black?
Steph on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

It’s unclear if this a request to print using black toner only OR a request to produce a true black outcome. If the desire is to print with black toner only, there is a driver setting that you can attempt to see if it provides the desired results. If using the PCL6 driver, this is found under Printing Preferences, the Detailed Settings tab, Print Quality, Color Profile. Changing the dropdown item to User Setting allows making settings choices for black only for several items. There is also a checkbox selection to Print All Text As Black. That being said, it is important to also mention the role that the application you’re printing from has in all of this. It is possible that that application can override some of these settings and cause the machine to use all 4 toners. True black is produced by using all 4 colors in combination. Black toner by itself will produce a grayish black output. So, if the desire is to produce true black, then make sure that the driver settings mentioned above are left unchanged.

This version can print by "Borderless" , yet?
Matus on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

No devices that use laser printing methodology can print true borderless. The nature of that technology requires a margin on the lead edge thus the inability to perform printing without a margin.

Hi everyone

Somebody knows if this printer support smtp relay to office 365 port 587?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The MPC3503 does support SMTP over TLS(STARTTLS) which is what Office 365 Smtp relay over port 587 refers to. The setup involves programming the SMTP server information, enabling SMTP over SSL, setting the port to 587 (for TLS[STARTTLS]), installing a site certificate approved by Office365, and programming the appropriate authentication method and associated credentials required by Office365. The Security Reference Guide for your machine will be of good help to you with this setup. If you do not have this guide, please contact your local sales/service office for assistance with doing so.

how do i do full bleed printing with this printer?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The nature of the technology used for printing by this model does not allow for filling a whole page so that there are no borders or margins (full bleed/borderless printing). While there is an Edge to Edge Print selection within the print driver's settings, this setting only maximizes the print area by minimizing the blank space along the edges - it does not eliminate those blank spaces. Laser printers that finally fuse the images onto the paper require some amount of margin (or area without print) on the leading edge of the paper in order to feed that paper without jamming. The only option available to produce the desired result would be to print onto a larger sized paper then to cut away the undesired margins.

can a blue toner be used instead of black?
Jane I on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

I have a attached a link that will walk you through setting up the machine to print in blue. http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi_view/0001048/0001048458/view/copy/int/0062.htm

If you are asking if you can replace a black toner with a blue, that is not possible as the drum is set for black toner, and you will have image issues.

When trying to send a print job of a large .pdf file, I get "error type 91: error" and the "offline" print que loads up with error messages. Then the machine repeatedly prints out page one of the file. What is going on here?
bob p on Dec 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The error 91 refers to the machine having reset a print attempt because of some issue with the file. Printing or viewing the error log from the control panel allows for more fully identifying the issue that generated the error code. Has this particular job been successfully printed before from this same computer? Can we know which operating system and print driver are being used to attempt this print? Does this problem occur with the specific pdf file only or with all pdf files?

I would suggest working with our support team for faster resolution. Please contact the support team via chat on myricoh.com https://www.myricoh.com or by calling 1-888-456-6457
