If you're good at taking things appart clean the print head. Theses machines are known for drying up. But you may get away by doing a head flushing.

1. Press [menu]
2. Scroll down to [Maintenance] then press enter [#]
3. Scroll down to [Head Flushing], press enter[#]
4. I'm not sure about this part but ensure that you flush each head and then test print. If it is still blank or partially blank repeat steps.

The best would be to clean the print head with a damp cloth.

Jam inside top cover 13.05.00 also change fuser assembly


To remove paper jam. Just remove the toner cartridge and pullout jammed paper. If still coming paper jammed error message. Switch of the printer and the printer will roll over the paper jammed.

Changing of fuser drum is required if the print out came with the black strips. This happens when you print large volume of printing jobs.

    SUBJECT: SC999 OCCURS
    SYMPTOM:

    - Low humidity
    - Long intervals between machine usage
    - Total period of usage is long
    - Low Print Volume

    SOLUTION:
    Production Countermeasure:
    The shapes of some parts in the Maintenance Unit have been changed in two steps ("Step 1" and "Step 2"
    below).
    NOTE:
    See Appendix 1 for the details of the Step 1 and Step 2 modifications.
    See Appendix 2 for the visual differences among the unmodified unit, the Step 1-modified unit, and
    Step 2-modified unit.
    See UNITS AFFECTED for the Serial Number cut-in of Steps 1 and 2.
    Field Countermeasure:
    1. Cycle power OFF/ON.
    2. Install one of the modified Maintenance Units ("Step 1" or "Step 2").
    NOTE: For customers experiencing a SC999, have them contact 1-800 Ricoh38 for replacement.
