Re: Ricoh Fax 3800L Error code

Hi there the error code that you are getting appears to be for the left lock where the fuser is make sure that the door is shut fully and turn the machine off then on again if this doesn't work then it is more likely to be the laser unit and this will need replacing.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Thanks J

Ricoh 3310l fax shows error code 0390H in display. Anyone know what this means?

I've never seen a message like that with the 0390H code. There is no mention of that code in either the user manual or service manual. The closest thing is the sc390 code, which means either the toner density sensor or the developer has gone bad, and typically replacing the PCU can fix that problem.

If the new PCU doesn't fix the problem, you might want to try calling Ricoh for support, since their documentation doesn't mention that code.

They code from the display is 0-02H what is the meaning and what is the solution of that?

You haven't included the model number, but it looks to me like a "Ricoh" error code (or possibly Savin / Gestetner which are the same)

Error 02-02H is a fuser error, and is either the heater lamp, fuse or thermistor, causing the "warm up error". This can only be reset by a needlessly over-complicated procedure in service mode once the trouble is fixed.

Fuser error.....Either blown fuse, bad thermistor, or blown lamp. Problem needs to be repaired, and then a WAY over complicated reset procedure has to be performed in service mode to clear the error.

Ricoh fax error #400

Possibly the fax line is open (busy). Try ringing the fax number, see what you get. Try unplugging the fax and plug a normal analogue handset into the line. See if you are getting a dial tone.
If not, then the cabling or line are faulty. Talk to your carrier. If yes then replace the cable on the fax (if possible) or have it looked at.
