The other gentleman is right. The when the motor in the laser unit runs either slow,fast or just quits it will put that code up.Some times a tech can go into the computer and reset it,but the majority of the time it is only a small fix for it will come back.Yes it is costly I have already done one to the tune of $660.00 just for the unit not including the install and readjustment.

    I am sorry to say but it is the same problem for that model also.The exact diagnosis for it is , 320:Laser polygon motor problem.

The model number of your machine doesn't match up with anything I've seen. I'm thinking that it's a machine built by Ricoh and if so, that S/C 320 indicates that the polygon mirror motor has failed. If that is the case, it's going to be a costly repair as that part is burried way inside the machine and isn't easy to replace by the average layman. Sorry I couldn't be more help. I'm about 5,500 miles away.

    Hi-



    Well now we know what we're dealing with. The part number for the polygon mirror motor is G029 1961. You might be able to buy one on EBay and if you can find someone with a little mechanical aptitude you might be able to get it done for a little over $250.00. I was able to buy one for about $75.00 plus shipping on EBay. If there aren't a horrendous number of copies on the machine counter, it's probably worth fixing.



     



    Aloha,

MY GESTETNER 3218 AFICIO FUNCTIONAL PROBLEM SC 320. HOW CAN I SOLVE THE PROBLEM


SC 320 - Polygon motor error.
The polygon motor does not reach its operating speed within 10 sec. after the polygon motor on signal,or the lock signal is not detected for more than 40 ms continuosly during operation.
Possible causes polygon motor defective,poor conection of the interface harness which connects the polygon motor driver and the IOCSS board, IOCSS bboard defective.
The SC can be reset by turning the main switch OFF and ON if the SC was caused by a sensor error.
To reset SC press yellow key 1 - 0 - 7 and STOP ( red ) key for 3 seconds,enter in the SP mode, enter SP 5-810 ( SC code reset) and select "1".Then hold down the Photo mode key and the # key at the same time for at least 3 seconds(this does not require the main switch to be turned off and on).

Code SC195 Functional Problems


Enter SP mode: Press Clear (yellow) button, 1 0 7 and press and hold the Stop (orange) button for 3 secs. Then switch off and on again.
SC 195: Serial number mismatch
Serial number stored in memory is not correct.
Enter SP mode and check the serial number of the machine with SP5-811-002.
If the stored serial number is incorrect, possible causes are;
  1. NVRAM defective
  2. BICU (Main board) replaced without original NVRAM
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

Gestetner 3218 Aficio 180 Fuctional Problem SC 543


Enter SP mode - Clear button (yellow key), 1 0 7 and hold and press stop button (orange key).
Enter SP5-810 (SC code reset) and select “1”.
Then hold down the “Photo mode” key and the enter key(hash) at the same time for at least 3 seconds (it is not necessary to turn the main switch off andon). If the machine beeps 5 times, the reset was successful. If it only beeps twice, the reset failed, and you need to repair the machine.
Possible causes are the fusing thermistor in the fuser unit, or the power supply unit defective.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

Turn the machine on, and press clear modes, 1, 0 ,7, and press and hold the clear stop key. It will beep, and a menu will appear. Select copy SP (1), and then select data log (#7) scroll until you get to 7807 (sc/jam counter reset). select it, and press execute. exit all the way out, and recycle the power. If it comes to ready, it should be ok. If it happens again after that, there is a fuser problem of some sort.
