Re: Machine code question

Hi Alexandra,
I hate to be the messenger of bad news but Machine Error 7C mean Engine PCB Error. This error code is for servicer reference and may not appear on the service manual. If it does, it will tell you to unplug the unit and try again. If the problem persists, you have to bring it to an Authorized Brother Service center for repair.

The link below will take you to a Service Manual page where the error code is defined.

Best Regards,

Our office uses a Sharp FO-4470 fax machine. this morning it is flashing an error on the display of High Voltage Error. Can anyone help with this?

It probably means that the high voltage driver board is blown. You'll have to take it to a service center for repair.

Ricoh 3310l fax shows error code 0390H in display. Anyone know what this means?

I've never seen a message like that with the 0390H code. There is no mention of that code in either the user manual or service manual. The closest thing is the sc390 code, which means either the toner density sensor or the developer has gone bad, and typically replacing the PCU can fix that problem.

If the new PCU doesn't fix the problem, you might want to try calling Ricoh for support, since their documentation doesn't mention that code.

Ricoh FAX5000L - Check: Network Error! [10-40]

Usually this means it was previous;y hooked up to a network, or the network settings have changed and they are mismatched. Do you use it as a printer? If not, in the user settings, (I'm not exactly sure where, but you can download a manual at just set all the network settings to 0's - for example Ip address, gateway, etc. Otherwise set them correctly in order to print.

Error 7C

There's no manual for "machine error 7C" in Bro IntelliFax 4100. To fix this issue. You will need to pull out the toner. Note: the toner and drum are connected.....At the left corner of the drum. You will see a blue tab......You will need to slide the blue tab back and forth for 20th times....And put the toner back in its place.....This is just a temp fix but you need to replace the drum to have it working its fullest......

worst case scenerio is your engine board has gone bad. first though, try a new brother brand DR400. a faulty/binding drum unit can cause this. usually happens with generic brands.
