    I'm sure we'll find ways around that...

    Re: How to use black drum as color drum for MPC28/33/40/5000

    I saw it was mentioned that the Savin CLP340D (Ricoh SPC820) drums can be used in some of the copiers with some modification.

    Is the copier model the Savin C4040/C5050? (Ricoh MPC4000, MPC5000)

    Also, sounds like the dev. unit section of the drums for the CLP340 can not be used in the copiers?

    Today, I have used black drum as replace for color drum in my Ricoh MPC2800. Swapped the wires, cut out a corner of the connector as in original, and now all works as a charm. Thank You good people, for useful instructions. You helped to save me a huge pile of money, especially when I don't have very much. Recently I heard a rumor from my technician, that in new Ricoh MP series, Ricoh build their printing devices, with only one type of drums for all CMYK colors. I don't researched this info to confirm, but I think it is good thing if it's true. So PEOPLE, it's working fine, and I have done a replacement very fast. It's quite easy to do, with some precautions.

    You're welcome

    We've been using this method for years now, and adapted it to newer models too. It's true Ricoh has changed the prerequisities a number of times with the model changes, and also they've updated the older drums and such. Usually it's just a matter of looking closely at the two drums to see what you need to modify. Not too hard if you're a tech. Saves a pile of money too. A big pile.

    Good luck in the future!

    Peace sells, but who's buying?

    I researched a lot info about this models on the Forum, and can surely say, that MPC2500/3500/4500 does not need wires to be swapped. It's easy to check with multimeter. For me, I double checked the connectors, how they wires on the drum unit with multimeter (for color and black), and then I was sure for 100%, that for my black drum unit it's necessary to swap wires.
