Re: Ricoh CL2000N Error Code SC230

The manual says this code means " BCU Received no Feedback from LD" I have no idea what that means, but maybe it will help a tech on hear tell you more.

I have a Ricoh Aficio CL2000N Laser Printer and it is displaying an error message, which reads, SC 846 Power off on. What can I do to resolve the problem?

SC846 is not a code listed in the service manual... are you sure you are reading it right?

Try turning the machine off, unplugging it for 30 seconds, and turning it back on. Any luck?

I have this error code on my ricoh aficio cl7200 : SC 440-02

On the CL7200, sc440-02 is a color drum motor error. This error could be caused by a bad color drum unit (any of the 3 colors) or the drum gear positioning sensor, but more often than not it is because of a drum motor that went bad. There is one motor that controls all three color drums -- when this motor goes bad, you get the sc440-02 error.

Error code: color registration error and ultra-light, smudged printing on right side of paper

have you replaced all of the consumables?
drums X2 black and color
developer units X4 CMYK
transfer imaging belt X1
Fuser unit X1
if the unit has over 60k prints it will need to have these items replaced and once that is done the color registration will come back inline.

Ricoh Afiicio CL2000 Color register error.

You can try to reseat the color PCU, but you may have to replace it. Also, make sure all of your color toners are seated properly.

Error code sc440

Black drum motor error. These machines are bad about the waste toner building up in the drum unit. You could try and take the auger out of the drum unit(very messy) and clean it out or try replacing the black pcu.

Ricoh Aficio Color Registration Error

One of our Ricoh CL3500N printers- less than a year old- gave us a "color regist error" after changing the transfer belt.

Ran the "adjust color regist" without results. It would just finish and pop back up with the same error.

Color test page printed no color, just BW

I reseated everything, and even replaced the PCU without positive results.

A couple hours later I went back, took everything out (be sure to keep the pcus out of the light!), and vaccuumed the heck outta that printer.

For whatever reason- maybe there was a chunk of toner hanging out, maybe I knocked something loose or back in place, whatever- but when I put all the parts in and turned it on, the error was gone and color printed great!
