It is a cooling fan that has died.....I copied the following directly from the service manual. It's been a while since I've seen one of these machines, but the fan is either inside the rear panel, or accessible through either side (wherever there are vents in the panels basically). If you're at all technically inclined you can usually tell which fan it is by simply spinning it, and if it's not free, it is trouble...fairly standard fans, as long as you get the proper direction of airflow, and similar amps.

SC490: Ozone fan motor lock/Exhaust fan motor lock
-Definition- [B]
A fan motor lock signal is detected for more than 0.5 second from
either fan.
- Possible causes -
· Ozone fan motor defective
· Exaust fan motor defective
· Poor connection of the fan motor connector
· Something is stuck in the fan motor

Error sc 490

try to rest the code by hitting the Yellow clear botton, then the numbers 1-0-7 then press and hold the red clear/stop botton for three seconds. The screen will change and then turn the copier off. this should reset the code.. That is if there was a power problem. Try it and see what Happens..
