To reset fuser SC codes you need to enter Service Programme Mode and reset SP5-810 to 1, then turn the main switch off and on again. If you need help on entering SP mode etc. then take a look here.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL2000N Laser Printer and it is displaying an error message, which reads, SC 846 Power off on. What can I do to resolve the problem?


SC846 is not a code listed in the service manual... are you sure you are reading it right?

Try turning the machine off, unplugging it for 30 seconds, and turning it back on. Any luck?

WHAT DOES THE SC 38 MEAN ?? WHAT FAULT DOES THIS SERVICE CODE REFER TO?? I HAVE A LANIER 2138 COLOUR LASER PRINTER, (SAME AS RICOF AP3800 SERIES)


SC is for "Service Call". The error may be caused by a defect or an irritation of internal sensors.
Ricoh recommends to physically switch off the printer, wait for a few minutes and power on again. (Irritation by change in surrounding temperature)
If you recently replaced any movable parts inside, remove it again and reseat, many parts inside are checked by sensors for proper seating.
If this does not help, you need to call Ricoh customer service.

Ricoh AP2600 printer gives an error message of SC322


1st Laser synchronization error signal error. The 1st Laser that turns on inside of the printer can't synchronize properly to print out documents which is why this message comes up and nothing is printing. Probably is going to need to be replaced but a qualified service tech is going to need to look at it further.

Error message


It's the fuser. You can try turning it off, wait 30 seconds, and turn it back on again.

If the problem continues, call a technician in to get the thermistor replaced.

It's a common error.

Error Message sc376


I am pretty sure Sc376 is your Magenta not Cyan. try replacing your magenta developer unit and your magenta drum unit. If you buy them from a dealer you will have to buy all the colors not just magenta. Try Ebay first and search for supplies for your model.
