Re: SC998 problem

(RAM, DIMM, board)
ends abnormally.
Application start error
• Download controller firmware
• Replace the controller board
• An option required by the application (RAM, DIMM, board) is not installed
After power on, the application does not start within 60 s. (All applications neither start nor end normally.)
your firmware got messed up propably so you will need to obtain the controller board firmware , or when you print something you select a function on the pc that is not installed on the machine hope this helps you

The machine didn't store that info.
For all i know no machine make it.
If you had a recent model with HDD, You could stored the document in the document server (a function of the recent models with HDD) and then print the info stored in the HDD

I turn on my ricoh aficio copier 2022 this code sc998 appear

The meaning of the error sc998 is the system software does not start within 60 sec.The cause for that is either the RAM, DIMM (software SD cards), firmware(system software) or the main controller is faulty or not connected properly.
Did you remove chip or SD card from the machine?

I have a Ricoh Aficio 2022 which displays a service code SC545. Anyone know what this means. Do I need a tecnician to fix? Thanks Steve

This is a fuser overheating problem. I'd try to clean the thermistors and make sure they are touching the hot roller then use SP810 to reset the code. (clear modes, 1,0,7,hold down the clear stop key, enter COPIER SP mode,then go to SP810 and hit execute.

Error code SC998 on Ricoh Aficio 1045

The error code 998 is usually for the dimm or application boards read errors try taking the memory out and the app board out and reseat them again.. then go into the service mode via yellow clear button and then enter 107 then hold down the stop button till the panel changes and turn off the copier wait for 5 secs then turn back on.. If you dont know where boards are take the back panel off and on the right hand side there is a box with a steel plate on the dimms Ram..and app boards are there.. Good Luck A..
