How do you fix the issue of WPA Authentication was not completed (211)?
kim b on Jul 30, 2018

This message appears when the setup for wireless connection is incomplete. This can either be because of missing some machine side setting or possibly because of some network side item that the machine isn't properly matching. Ensure that all relevant information required by the router has been entered into the machine and that the machine is allowed to interact with that router.

What's the lifecycle of this product?
Christian M on Apr 18, 2018

Average Monthly Volume represents the number of copies Ricoh recommends users to run per month - 5,500 copies
Maximum Monthly Volume represents the maximum number of copies users can make in any one month. This does not mean that customers can make this number of copies every month. This volume multiplied by 60 months gives you the expected life of the machine - 15,000 copies
Life is the maximum number of copies that Ricoh recommends to be run on a machine (i.e. the Maximum Monthly Volume times 60 months explained above) or 5 years, whichever comes first - 900,000 copies

Can I copy a birth certificate? When I try, it comes out black.
Lori K on Apr 5, 2016

Copying sensitive documents such as checks, birth certificates, etc. are protected by security features on the machine (which is why you are seeing all black). The MICR option allows for the processing of the special ink on these documents and can be purchased as an add-on.

Please contact your Ricoh representative or local Ricoh dealer (http://dealer.Ricoh-USA.com) to find out more.

Does this copy mixed sized originals or is output only on one size?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2015

This machine will copy mixed sizes. You need to have 2 paper cassettes, with letter in one tray and legal in the other.
Next, SP 5-076 needs to be set to a "1"
This will bring the choice for mixed sizes under original type on the copy screen.
Choose mixed sizes, then start copying!
