Toner density sensor is located in the developer unit. either the sensor is not reading cause something is covering it or it has poped so it can not reference any longer.

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 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.

How do i set aficio 1035 to factory default

SC352 Indicates ID Sensor/Pattern edge detect Error 3. If its a color machine, then it's a Magenta TD ensor failure.

Usually If you need to change the developer roller you should change the developer as well. Once that is done, then you go into service mode and calibrate the developer and initialize the TD sensor.

Did you change the developer?
