Ricoh CL 7000 down due to an SC-685

Do you have the copier feature option installed?
It is most likely just a loose connection on the interface between the main printer unit and scanner section. Turn off main power (red button), and re-seat the connector.

Please let me know and rate solution :)

How to reset SC 302 code ?

sc302 is usually PCU or charge roller.
As you say you have recently replaced the Drum/PCU, is the drum turning correctly?

Check charge connectors and connectors on the back of the pcu. To reset that code, simply turn main power off and on again. If problem comes right back....the machine detects the cause still exists. May be an issue with the HVT.

Dirty copies on Ricoh Aficio CL 7000 copier

Did you replace the fusing oil as well? toner will not fuse well and deteriorate your new fuser very quickly if you are out of oil

Ricoh CL 7000 error code SC 387

This Code relates to color gamma error in the Yellow development. Possible causes Low toner density in the Y toner,Toner supply Y mechanism problem( not supplying enough toner),Laser exposure problem, image transfer problem. My suggestion would be to ensure you have toner in the cartridge( but by this time it has depleted the developer), and you will need to replace the development unit and possibly the drum Unit. My best guess would be the development Unit.
