I don't know what is your printer model, but I am sure, that this mashine needs cleaning. The main problem should be that the ID sensors of image transfer belt are dirty. You need technical skills to do that.

How to fix the error mc2030 Gestetner print accurred SC400?

I can only find a Gestetner MPC2030, so if that is correct, here is the service bulletin on the problem, and how to resolve:
Please follow the troubleshooting steps below to resolve an SC400 (ID Sensor Adjustment Error).
1. Check the harness of the ID sensor.
2. Clean the ID sensor with a cloth moistened with water. NOTE: Never use alcohol, because this may damage the board.
3. Execute SP3011-001 (manual process control).
4. If the value of SP3324-003 (Vsg error counter) is NOT"0", repeat Steps 2 and 3.
5. If the value of SP3324-003 is still NOT "0" after repeating Steps 2 and 3, check the spring for the PTR unit contact lever. Repeat steps 3 & 4.
6. If the value of SP3324-003 is still NOT "0" replace the ID sensor. Repeat steps 3 & 4.
1. If the black spacers are stuck to the sensor board, remove all black spacers. These black spacers should be used when a new ID sensor board is installed.
2. Input all correction coefficients for the ID sensor with the SP modes referring to the barcode sheet provided with the new ID sensor unit/board. For example, input "0.98" with SP3362-013 & 016.
3. Always refer to the Service Manual for the complete part replacement procedure.
7. If the value of SP3324-003 is still NOT "0" replace the BCU. Repeat steps 3 & 4.
8. If the value of SP3324-003 is still NOT "0" replace the ITB unit.

Hi all Lanier Ld 520c Error code 400 what is it. Thanks

sc400 is an ID sensor error. You probably only need to clean the ID sensor, rather than replace it, but there's a chance it could be something more serious, like a board or the transfer belt assembly.
Getting to the ID sensor is tricky -- you may want to call a service technician. The fuser needs to be removed and the whole right side door needs to be taken off. But chances are that once that ID sensor is cleaned and the machine is turned off and back on, the sc400 error will go away.

A code appears on my Dacor oven/stove that reads FO, what does it mean?

Hi bevtrust,

The error code that appears on your Dacor oven is about a stuck function key which refers to F0 error code. To fix this problem, you need to replace the oven's touch pad. If the touch pad is part of the clock, you need to replace the clock or ERC.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

With a printer/copier Ricoh spc221sf, giving code sc400

sc400 is a process control error. Did you just replace the all-in-one toner cartridge? If so, take it back out and try again -- it might not have been in all the way. If the error still occurs, check the contacts between the toner cartridge and the machine -- they may have gotten bent or dirty.
