Hi, does the problem show up all the time or every 20 to 40 copies or will it code out when the copy job is done printting? Also, do you have a finisher on it. If so try to unplug the finisher and see if problem shows up. If it dose you may have a bad Hard Drive. I chased my tail for awhile on it and it turned out to be the HD. If so, save your self some money and buy a new 40G HD drive from a computer store. The OEM one is about $175.00. There is nothing on it, it just stores sortting jobs. Get one just like the one in the copier.I beleave it is a Seagate brand It is also possible that it is the boot chip, it is on the PCB under the HD.

Hi, the SC 990 is a communication error between the BICU board and the IOB, check the connections, cables, switches, sensors of the IOB and make sure that has a good connection to the BICU.

sc990 is the software problem. replace the HDD of the machine and it should be fine. don't format the hard drive as it might result in laser error code.

I have A problem of SC990 in the ricoh aficio 2035/45 and also I get light copies and over tonning problem.

The light copies and overtoning is probably caused by the developer going bad. Do you have a service contract on your copier? It's likely time for a whole PM (preventive maintenance) procedure.

The sc990 is probably caused by the copier's condition as well. Once you have the PM done (or at least replace the developer, rebuild the photoconductor unit, and clean or rebuild the transfer unit) the sc990 codes should go away along with the poor copy quality.

Generally changing the cylinder (blade and developer) Initialize td and id sensor usually it is solved. If it is not thus it proves the following thing: press point and numeral (enter) simultaneously for more than 10 seconds until this clear the service call. If the problem persists can be the hard disk, change.

Af2045 always shows sc 990

if you are getting the sc990 code, you will need to have someone come out and do preventative maintenance (PM) on the machine. the 990 code has to do with the drum quality, and the only way to fix it is to, at least, have the drum unit rebulit.

Not sure what SC818 is as not in my manuals please try the following.

Entering and Exiting SP mode
1. Press the Clear Mode key.
2. Use the keypad to enter “107”.
3. Hold down Clear/Stop for at least 3 seconds.
4. Enter the Service Mode.
To enter the Normal Service Mode:
Copy SP On the touch-panel, press Copy SP.

Once in the service mode turn the main switch off located on the left hand side of the machine wait 5-10 seconds then switch back on. This should get the machine working. Hope this helps

Thanks J
