Ricoh 1232c Error SC571

I did get to clean the fusing unit and the overflow sensor, but the error SC571 is still coming back. Can some one tell me how to reset the unit
I read in a other web page "Reset the SC (set SP5-810 to 1) then turn the main switch off then on again"
I don't know what's that mean can you explain that to me how to do it.

SP 1-930-1 Forces the oil pump to supply silicone oil up from the oil
tank to the tank in the oil supply unit. If the oil end
sensor detects oil in the oil supply unit, this SP will not start the pump.

SP 1-970-1 is an oil removal process mode for the transfer belt.

SP 5-810-1 is a fusing reset but if the sensor isn't working properly, the code could pop up right away.

This error code is related to a Insufficient oil.
The fusing oil tank is in the rear of the machine.
You have to call Ricoh to supply the oil.

The machine has no fuser oil.
Fill the little tank at the back side of the machine. If the tank is full, check the tubes, oil pump, and oil sensor.
Reboot the machine to clear the SC.
The problem will be solved

The error means - Fusing unit rotation error.
Check if the fusing unit(right door{hot unit}) ,if it is rotating properly.
There could also be a sensor on the frame or the machine which senses the fusing unit rotation,(the sensor sometimes comes off)(remove the fusing unit and check where the fusing unit is seated).
Also try cleaning the sensor with a blower or brush.

Error code sc481 for ricoh copier 1232c

This is a "Transfer belt mark detection error" This means the transfer-belt in the PCU is torn or separated where it has a mark that flags a sensor telling the machine where the belt position is, The fix is to replace the entire PCU. 4 Screws that have arrows pointing to them surround the unit facing you when you open the front door will release the unit allowing you to insert a new unit and the code should go away ,, good luck!
