Re: HD dead

Just use any unformatted 40gb IDE disk (if you can find one for sale). The machine has a format function built in to the maintenance menu.

Ricoh AP3800C sc389 error code

SC389 is a development gamma error in the magenta. There can be several causes for this error - a toner supply problem, incorrect toner used, a laser exposure problem etc. This is not likely to be an easy problem to fix unless you are experienced in such matters, so you may need to look for someone who can help out.

My Ricoh 388 is in need of replacing the fuser unit which we just replaced months ago and are very expenseive. Is there a way to fill the oil only in the fuser unit instead of having to replace the entire...

Unfortunately, on the AP3800C the oil supply unit is part of the fusing unit. However, you can purchase just the oil supply portion of the fusing unit and replace that (part #G0604022).

I'm not sure how much that would cost, but it's got to be cheaper than a whole new fusing unit.

Microcode fails to load at power on self test (post). stays on WorkIO splash screen as the hard drive fails sounds like it crashed or is stuck ina loop.

The microcode is loaded from CMOS not the hard drive. CMOS also sets up the 40Gb. hard drive for use. Initially has no data or partition tables however; post will not complete if the disk is unavailable. Replace the disk drive and you're Done!

Xerox 5252 running

You will need the contract. All Xerox machines made within the last few years unfortunately REQUIRE a XEROX authorized laptop computer in order to make any adjustments or to even get into the service mode. You can do the normal stuff and just pay by the call down the road when you need it but Xerox will charge you an arm and a leg for parts and labor.
If the machine is new, depending on your monthly volume you should expect to pay about 1 cent per page Black and 8 cents per page full color. Again these prices can vary based on your volume. The more pages you run the cheaper the cost per page.
Good Luck

I get the same message coming up "remove paper standard tray"

Sounds like it is misfeeding from the Default tray (just not getting the paper into the machine). try removing the paper from the default tray, and use another one. If it works, then the paper feed rollers are the likely cause.
