Trouble Printing from Windows
  1. You will not be able to print if your password has expired. This can occur unknowingly if you have not logged off your machine for more than a week. Change your password (Ctrl+Alt+Del select "Change Password", log off then log on.). Try printing.
  2. Printer is out of paper.
  3. Printer has a paper jam.
  4. The date and time on your computer does not match that of the print server. Double click the Time (bottom right of screen), and set the correct date and time.
  5. Ricoh printers need to be online mode before you can print. To check this, go to the ricoh printer, press the "Printer" button, then on the LCD press the "Online" button.

  7. Still can't print see the friendly IT support staff.
