Have a Ricoh MP 161 copier that says replace photoconductor. We got a quote from our local Ricoh rep and it is $150 labor to replace the part....really??  Isn't this just a "drum"?  No where can I find where the part is and how to replace it.  Can't be that hard.  Manuals don't have anything in it.
Optional Information:
Make: Ricoh
Model: MP161
Already Tried:
Looking at machine to figure out part

Not on this unit, just a general reset if any, which is in the Manual for the unit, you are welcome, and glad I could be of assistance,

Is there any "settings" or "codes" that have to be re-set after installation or will the machine just know???  i was reading other blogs about Ricoh copiers and they talked about having to reset stuff....which made me nervous.  Thansk!

For your unit, yes this error relates to the "Drum Unit".
The most affordable one I could find and also has free shipping is below:
Lastly, for the steps to install it on the unit, you would need to follow the step by step guide below to do so properly:
1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum  cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from  the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.

When closing the covers,  be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover.  If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be  damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black  paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.

4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.
Glad I could be of assistance and god bless!
