sc441 is a drum motor error. It could be caused by anything from a faulty circuit board to a bad motor, but the most likely fix (and the easiest) is to replace the color PCUs (photoconductor units) which I believe all come as one set.
Turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall, then install the new PCUs, plug it back in and turn it on. There's a good chance your printer will work fine. If the sc441 error comes back, you should contact your local service company and have them take a look at it, because the problem is either electrical or mechanical.
Black drum motor error. These machines are bad about the waste toner building up in the drum unit. You could try and take the auger out of the drum unit(very messy) and clean it out or try replacing the black pcu.
Have you recently replaced the colour PCU? It may not be seated properly, otherwise there is likely a problem with it, and it's not turning (ie: a broken gear). It could also be the PCU drive motor, or control board. Sounds like you may need a tech to get to the root cause unless you have a spare PCU to try?? This also explains the colour registration problem.
should have a menu option for clearing errors. or just restarting the printer.. to find out what the error is call ricoh support.. typically if you have a printer like this, you have a service contract with company that handles the repairs and maintainace.
You get this message because the PCU isn't seated properly.
This is a link for the user manual for this printer:
On page 13 shows a diagram that indicates the photoconductor unit on the printer.
Page 60 shows you different error messages, what they mean and how to fix it. It means you have to take out the pcu and reseat it into the printer, it is not in correctly.
Page 29 shows you how to do this. It has pictures of how to take out the pcu and put it in correctly.
I hope you get it fixed.
