When copier is putting on , it displays " error code SC:551"

There is a bad thermistor in the fuser most likely.
You can try pressing Clear all then 107 and hold the stop button down.
That should put you into the SC area. Press copy sc then turn the machine off and on to see if it clears the fault.
Otherwise replace the thermistor.

Error sc 452 shown on my aficio 452 color copier how to rectified

sc 452 is a thermistor error code for the fusing unit of the copier. Try pressing these buttons in sequence. (yellow key) (1).(0).(7) (red Clear/stop key) and hold the red key down for 5 seconds. When the 3 or 4 boxs appear, turn your copier on and off with the main power switch. If the error code comes back then contact the seller of your copier and ask for technical service.

Gestetner DSm615 giving error SC:552,How do i clear it

Are you sure of the code? I don't have the exact manual for that, machine but the number seems strange. "5xx" errors are usually related to the fuser, so could be a bad lamp, thermistor, or fuse. see note to reset (if there is not a problem) as follows:
There are 2 levels of service call conditions.
Level Definition Reset Procedure
To prevent the machine from being
damaged, the SC can only be reset by a
service representative.
The copier cannot be operated at all.
Enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select “1”. Then hold down the Original
type key and the OK or ! key at the
same time (this does not require the
main switch to be turned off and on).

RICOH 2015 error code sc 500

Main motor/ transport motor lock/ fusting motor error.

The only thing you can do is check for any obstructions in the machine.

That needs to be looked at by a service because the problem could be a motor, a pcb, or a power supply.

It can be a lot of troubleshooting to do.
