The ID sensor is the Image Density sensor. It meassures the toner density on the drum under spesific conditions (laser intensity and different voltages). Worn drum or old developer can not generate full color (toner) coverage. The ID sensor value helps the machine to adjust to worn drum and old developer - and still make OK copies.

This code relates to the ID sensor voltage check which didn't fall between the accepted levels (4V +/- 0.5V). Possible causes: defective sensor, dirty sensor, loose/disconected wire on the sensor, dirty drum.
If you need a manual with further details, it's available here. There's also some other helpful hints for this printer on that page.

Error code t84 ???????? anyone

Hi stuiejohnsto,
As far as I know there is no error code t84. The closest code that has the numbers 84 in error code CC-184.
Anyways, whatever code you may have, it's worth turning the machine off for 10 seconds by the Main ON/OFF swich (inside front door on the left).
With any luck your code should disappear. If not, can you let me know if it gives you a different code to t84
Good luck

Error sc385 ricoh 6513

SC385: Vsg Adjustment Error
The LCD displays SC385 when the output from the ID sensor is found to be
outside 1.8 ± 0.05 V during Vsg adjustment.
Turning the power off then on resets this condition. However, SC385 is lit again after the end of each copy job even when this SC condition is reset by turning the power off then on. Toner is still supplied, but using fixed supply mode, until a subsequent Vsg adjustment is successful.

For Starters

· Dirty ID sensor
· Poor connection of connector
· Defective ID sensor
· Poor cleaning
1. Clean the ID sensor.
2. Check if the sensor connector is properly connected.
3. Replace the ID sensor.
4. Check the drum cleaning unit.
