How to replace toner on a Ricoh multi-function device

To replace toner, you must be using approved Ricoh toner bottles that are specific to your Ricoh multi-function device. If you have questions on compatibility, please call Ricoh at 1-800-267-9469 and have your serial number handy.

  2. Remove the used toner cartridge.
  3. Shake the new cartridge "lightly" vertically (see inside panel).
  4. Unscrew the bottle cap and insert it into the device with the arrow on top.
  5. Close the panel door.


  • When adding toner, do not turn off the main power.
  • Do not shake the toner cartridge with its mouth/cap facing down.
