Question about Ricoh Aficio AP3800C Laser Printer
The printer shows error sc291 also it is recognizing the blue ink anymore the stats shows auto power off due that error
There's a list of Ricoh error codes right here: http://www.tecnodigitale.com/riparazioni/pdf/Codici_errore_Ricoh.pdf but it doesn't indicate an sc291 for the 3800 or for any other model for that matter.
There are usually contacts on the cartridge that interface with a reader in the printer to detect the chip in the cartridge. Examine a cartridge and look for any electrical contacts, make sure they don't look damaged or dirty clean them with 98% isopropyl alcohol. With the printer powered off and upplugged, try to find the corresponding contacts inside the printer for each of the contacts on the cartridge, clean those too.
If that doesn't change, try a different cyan cartridge, if that still doesn't work you will probably have to get the machine serviced.
