it's formatting possible in few city only in india like MUMBAI - DELHI - INDORE etc. because it's not a common or general format process. Try nearest used copier dealer.

Most machines just use regular or notebook hard drives available anywhere.

Just replace & format it inside of the copier menus.

Hi, I have a "please wait" error showing an a Ricoh aficio 2027,i have changed the H.D.D but the prolem still shows,also i have fitted the faulty H.D.D in another machine of the same type and it works...

The "Please wait" error is almost always caused by a fault hard drive. Have you tried running a disk repair utility like Scandisk on one of the hard drives when it's attached to a computer? Maybe the "new" hard drive you put in was also bad. (It doesn't take many bad sectors or other problems for the copier to not be able to use it.)

If both of the hard drives are truly good, the problem could be the hard drive controller, which sits on the main controller board, and you'd have to replace that whole board.

Ricoh Aficio MP 4000 sc 870 error after power cord was pulled with machine off but main power on.

SC870 = Address Book Data Error. This is most likely a hard drive failure especially considering the power loss. This is about a $175 repair in case you want to call around locally and get estimates to replace the drive. There is an outside chance you can get someone to walk you thru the Service Mode and do the following to reload the address book:
1. Enter the SP mode
2. 5846-50 (Initialize All Address Book)
3. Turn the machine off then on again.
Good Luck

Gestetner DSM627 Service Code Problem

These SC errors are related to the Hard disk.
Re - enter SP mode: Clear, 107 and press and hold Stop button for 3 secs.
Enter SP 5832-008 and press #,(Mail Tx data) to initialize the HDD. Then switch off and on the machine.
If still with error, replace the HDD.
Attention not to change any others SP modes - very sensitive settings!

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
