SOURCE: Error code SC305 for Photocopier Ricoh Aficio 1224c

Its a charge corona cleaning error. Try turning the power off, wait 10 seconds and turn it back on.

If that doesn't reset it, it could be the pcu, toner collected on the mechanism.

If turning it off and back on isn't fixing it, you should get a technician to look at it to see what the trouble is.

Pressure roller warm up error. Usually means that the fuser roller isn't at the right temperature when you turn the copier on.

Try turning the copier completely off. Wait 30 seconds. Turn it back on again and see if it goes away.

If not a technician should look at the fuser section to see what the problem is.

SOURCE: double sided is no longer an option with mac os 10.5.4

Go into the advanced settings of the driver and look for the settings that tell the copier what features you have. Make sure the duplex is turned on. Normally I set these up for Windows use and I have one client who uses a Mac and he did show me that the features do exist for the print driver.

Once it is enabled the double sided printer feature should work.

What does trouble code "SC

Hello Ryan,
It means your device went thru a self check in an effort maintain optimum copy quality. Your device could not get Magenta (pink/red) to even get close to the target values for that color. The most likely cause (and we hope so) is the Magenta development unit is toast. Replace it. But of course there are a myriad of other fun causes. As a sidebar, you might want to consider replacing yellow and cyan at the same time as they tend to croak at pretty much the same time. You have a quite reliable device as a rule. It's worth the cost. Take care. Let fixya know I helped ya please. SPINAL

On the Ricoh cl 7200 there is an error code sc386. What is it?

sc386 = an error with the black developer. This could be caused by something in the DV unit itself, or the black toner. If you've just replaced either one of these recently, try reinstalling them and resetting the machine. Otherwise, the black development unit probably needs to be replaced.
