The PCU is the photconductor unit. There is a black pcu and a color pcu. Did you replace these or replace the toner cartridges??

Are you sure you replaced the PCU and not the development unit? When you replace a PCU on the 3800, there is a fuse or tab that tells the copier it has a new PCU. If you put a brand new black PCU in the machine and it didn't recognize it, chances are that PCU was damaged. You can either keep running the machine and ignore the message, or try to replace the PCU with a new one again.

SOURCE: replace black PCU ricoh aficio
To replace the black PCU:
- Turn the printer off.
- Open the cover on the right side (as you're looking at the front of the printer).
- There are two green levers, one toward the front of the printer and one toward the back -- pull these out and lift the cover that they're holding all the way up (it should stay in place).
- Remove the black PCU by pinching the green lever and sliding the unit straight out.
- Take the new PCU out of the box, take off the tape around it and remove the cover on top of the unit.
- Align the new PCU along the rails the same way the old one was aligned (using the green arrow) and slowly slide it in. As you slide it in it will slide out of the bottom cover -- throw that cover away.
- Lower the PCU cover and slide the levers into place.
- Close the side door.
- Turn the printer on.
