    Our you sure that it is a SC680? The srevice manual only stops at SC672 and then jumps to SC 690. There are no service bullitens posted on the \is code SC680. can you check again?

Maybe the SC 680 code does not exist but my AP3800C did not know that so it showed it twice, Replacing the toner solved the problem for my machine.

The delivery server IP address is pushed to the machine from the scan router software. If it needs to be updated, you will have to remove and readd the I/O device within the scan router administration utility. If you do not use scan router you can set delivery option to off, and it will eliminate the error message.

Toner reset

SC680 is a communication error, usually relating to the chip on the toner cartridge. Check that it is clean and that the electical connection is properly made when the cartridge is in place. It can result from a wiring error, but that is much less likely, and a failure of the BCU board - even less likely. Hope that helps.

My machine aficio 2045e give error toner signal even though toner in bottle is more than50% i make every thing but still appear add toner

Inside the toner feed mechanism there is little plastic fins that tend to break off. You will probably have to replace the hopper unit (The unit that the toner tube sits in) or in that unit where the tube opening sites you can either replace the feed chuck or if your handy maybe repair the feed fins. The chuck part pops out with plastic tabs.
