I have a Ricoh 3800c which I print a lot of multiple copy jobs, the problem I am have is that the image shifts from page to page (if you place one copy on top of the other they do not line up). Since this started the machine is also making kind of a clicking noise. I cleaned the register roller and the sensor where the paper feed into the printer.
Forget it friend... the ricoh 4 drum colour printer is already on its 4th or 5th generation... it was replaced by cl7000 cl7100 and cl7200... the main problem with its original engine on the 3800c was drum shifting and unstable transfer... they replace it with a sterdier frame and drum support shafts and inserted a independant motor on the transfer belt...amongst other things... the only soultion here is really replacing the whole machine

Hi. The SC220 issue is a known one on the 3800c. It's a firmware related problem, and the code, which points to the synchronizing detector boards, is erroneous. You can read more about it, and possible ways to avoid it here. Updating the firmware to get rid of this problem is not an easy job.
Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.
Supplies life The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed. The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times. The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)
ls lt an image problem? image problem can be occurred if the solid black part of the image is on top. try to reverse the image by scanning it invert the image on the other side meaning the solid part be placed at the bottom.
