ERR (990) or ERR (999) are both error messages which are displayed when a sensor does not work normally due to dirtiness. For example, either may be caused by a dirty maintenance unit or clogged ink nozzles. It may be possible to resolve the issue by cleaning the device as described below

Error code 990 still after reset. what to do


Error 990 is an error message that has to do with the ink drying out on the maintenance unit. Unfortunately this is a fatal error and the printer will need to be replaced as the maintenance unit can only be fixed by a technician. You will have contact Ricoh for further information on possible replacement.

Have error code 990 on ricoh gx 3000 printer how do i clear this?


you can try pulling out and reseating the Waste Ink tank which is located behind the machine behind a plastic door cover (left side of machine as you are looking at it from behind). Turn the machine off and on using the main power switch. If the code comes back then you will more than likely need a new Waste Ink Tank.
