Can I see what has been printed on the printer?
Robin L on Feb 12, 2016

Thank you for your question. Using our Web Image Monitor, you can track the types of prints (i.e., black & white or color), see how much has been printed, monitor toner levels and more.

Please note that if you are wanting to see exactly what has been printed on a page, this is something that is protected by our printer security features and therefore cannot be viewed.

My printer keeps printing in black and white, how do i print in color?
Anmol S on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Choose "Color" in the printer driver when setting the print options. Your printer driver may be set to default to black and white printing. If you do not have a choice of "color" in the printer driver, then you should delete and then reinstall the printer driver using the driver for the SP C430DN located on the Ricoh web site at www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads.
will this connect wirelessly?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2015

Alfonso on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The SP C430DN is WiFi capable with the optional WiFi card and may also be accessed via a wireless access point (or router) on the same segment of the network that includes the printer.
