The Ricoh 1515 is a digital photocopier that can be configured to serve as a stand-alone copier, network printer, fax machine and scanner. When configured with the optional print/scan board, the 1515 is able to print and scan black-and-white pages at 15 pages per minute. The unit also has an optional automatic document feeder that can hold up to 50 sheets of letter-size paper. The 1515 was replaced by the Aficio 171 in 2009, but the functionality and operations remain the same.
Open the front panel of the machine. The toner bottle locking lever, which is blue plastic, is directly in the middle of the machine.
