Make an easy, affordable upgrade

Regardless of your space or budget, you can easily find room for the RICOH MP C2003 Color Laser Multifunction Printer. Its compact footprint means you can place it almost anywhere, and its wireless networking functionality doesn't require a ready Ethernet connection. Plus, you can look forward to quiet operation with noise-reducing features such as Smart Position Motors and Intelligent Airflow Engineering.

Put productivity on high

Whatever your task, complete it quickly. Scan documents up to 11" x 17" with ease. Utilize the 100-sheet Automatic Reversing Document Feeder (ARDF) to speed through document duplexing. And never miss a beat when you enjoy support for thicker paper stocks and paper sizes up to 12" x 18". Plus, a standard 1,200 paper-sheet capacity means longer jobs take less time with fewer paper refills. And you can still expand your capacity to up to 2,300 sheets.

Document sharing options

Need to print on the go? Use your smartphone to print via the RICOH Smart Device Print&Scan app, or Apple®AirPrint™, without device-specific drivers. Also, use the MFP's embedded web browser option to connect with our Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE) and effortlessly share information, scan documents and print from any web-enabled device - without adding software. Plus, take your important documents with you using the USB or SD card slots.

Space-saving finishing

Bind up to five paper sheets without staples using our exclusive Stapleless Finisher option. This is an especially beneficial solution in safety- conscious environments that house food, accommodate medical production, or in schools where children are present. You can also create finished documents with the optional 500-sheet internal finisher with hole-punch without expanding your device footprint. An optional 125-sheet inner one-bin tray keeps your documents well-organized and easily accessible as separate print, copy or fax output.

Eco-friendlier options

Check off your to-do list without compromising your eco-friendly commitment. The MP C2003 earned an EPEAT® Gold rating, is ENERGY STAR® certified, and has an extremely low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value as determined by ENERGY STAR program testing requirements. Help conserve power with the Energy Saver Timer and Sleep mode features, and reduce paper consumption using automatic duplexing. Plus, Ricoh's consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.

More intuitive interaction

Personalize your experience. The MP C2003 offers an optional 10'1" Smart Operation Panel - a vibrant, full-color display with touch-screen functionality. Quickly transition from one task to the next, create shortcuts to programs, and customize common jobs to save time and improve productivity. When toner needs to be replaced or a paper error occurs, you'll receive easy-to-understand, step-by-step animated instructions directly from the operational panel.

Enjoy continuous security

Improve security for more worry-free use. Two standard, powerful levels of security help protect the hard drive: The DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) automatically overwrites temporary data after each job, while standard HDD Encryption encodes documents stored on the hard drive. Additionally, help keep your documents out of the wrong hands with the user authentication feature, which requires a pass code or ID card for document access. Embedded watermarks also help prevent unauthorized copies.

Administrative assistance

View job queues and check supply levels with our Web Image Monitor and SmartDeviceMonitor, and remotely manage your MFP using a standard web browser. Our @Remote internet-based tool lets you monitor device usage, automate meter reads, receive toner alerts, and proactively engage service needs to cut downtime. For fleet management, utilize Manager NX Lite for real-time device status to efficiently monitor and manage your networked printing devices.

Can I block a certain fax number?

I am trying to print "edge to edge" I have the setting clicked under "Detailed Settings / Edit". I get a full edge to edge print except for the bottom ~1/8" (printing landscape - with 11" on bottom of page). How do I fill this portion of the page - "edge to edge"? Is there a print alignment issue with printer?
Todd Z on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The device cannot print to edge to edge of an 11x17" sheet, but can provide this feature by printing to a 12x18" sheet with crop marks and then cropping the printed page to 11x17"
Is there a way to set the default scanning resolution? We are an architecture firm and it would be easier for us to have the Default resolution at 600dpi rather than having to adjust it everytime.
Shay’l R on Jun 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The default settings can be accessed through the user panel or via the device's internal web page (Web Image Monitor) from a computer on the same network. You can see the device's web page by simply putting it's IP address into your web browser's address bar. The IP address should look something like this,, although it will probably be a slightly different number.

You can obtain step by step instructions on setting up the device defaults from the (240 page) User Guide or get quick reference tips from the single page Quick Reference Scanner Guide, both are downloadable from www.Ricoh-USA.com/downloads.
