I could not find any detailed explanation of what this "service code" means, but most of the "what to do" answers on their website say to contact your local sales/service office. Here is their website:

Hi Dwayne:
This error occurs when performing the white level detection. Check:
a - The white board on whether or not this position
b - Glass and Optical
c - UBS Card - (card may be faulty)
d - BICU Card (may be faulty)
e - Check the optics and connectors to the cards.

I have heard that several times after cleaning the mirrors of the scanner worked.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Call Xerox, they have a problem with this code and the ink loader needs to be updated.
It has to do with the yellow sicks loading properly
