SC194 means that the copier can't scan correctly the white plate in the scanner home position. Try cleaning all the scanner mirrors and the plate itself.

Functional problem sc 390 on ricoh photocopier, despite replacing drum, developer,blade,gears. after removing 9 copies it reads functional problem.

SC 390 on an Aficio 1018 will most likely be a bad TD (toner density) sensor, if you've already replaced the drum and developer. (One thing to check quickly though is to pull the PCU out and reinstall it, just to make sure that connection isn't the problem.)

You can either replace the TD sensor by itself, or replace the DV unit (which probably won't be much more expensive). But either way, you'll need to install new developer when you replace the parts.

For the Aficio 1018. SC-320 is laser failure - the polygon mirror motor inside the laser has failed and needs replacing. You will need to contact your nearest service agent for repair.

For your RICOH Aficio 1013F - SC-551 is overheat in standby mode as far as I can tell. The circuitry that controls the fuser section ie manages the heat has problem. Unless its right near a source of heat like a heater or has no circulation around you machine you will need contact a repair agent for this machine also.

Ricoh photocopier 1075 code sc541

Ok, its a firmware bug, but you should be able to reset it. Press clear modes, 1, 0, 7, and press and hold clear/stop. Press 1 for copy sp. Scroll down to 7, (data log) press 7. scroll to 7807, and reset it. exit all the way out, and recycle the power.
