Adding a 4 digit project pin code to WCER Ricoh printers for PC

How to add a 4 digit pin code to a WCER based Ricoh Printer. Ricoh printers in WCER will not print without a 4 digit project pin configured.

In this example, the Ricoh Printer's network name is "Florence".  Substitute your printer's name wherever you see Florence in the documentation.
In “Printers” menu – right click “Florence” -  either Florence on Mango or Florence via ip depending on your installed type.(remember printername may not be Florence)

Click “Printer” then “Printing Preferences


Change Factory Default Settings from “color” to “Black and White”.  Failure to change to black and white results in a .40 per page charge fee, regardless if the document contains color or not.

After selecting “Black and White” the “register current settings” button will activate.  Please press "Register Current Settings".

Register your new settings as “black and white”, press “ok

Go to: “Detailed Settings” tab
Press “job setup
Enter your project’s 4 digit pin usercode.  ie: 1234
Press “OK


On the Frequently Used Settings tab, compare your “Current Setting” window so that it looks like the below image –  Check the areas highlighted in yellow – and make sure “current setting” says “black and white”.
Press “OK” when done.  You should be ready to print in B&W to Florence printer.
