Are you sure you replaced the PCU and not the development unit? When you replace a PCU on the 3800, there is a fuse or tab that tells the copier it has a new PCU. If you put a brand new black PCU in the machine and it didn't recognize it, chances are that PCU was damaged. You can either keep running the machine and ignore the message, or try to replace the PCU with a new one again.

Hi I Have a message saying colour pcu type A Flashing ? Ricoh Aficio AP3800c What do i need Thanks


This message indicates that the colour drum(s) (called pcus) have reached near the end of their counter life. If the output is still ok you can safely ignore the message for now. If the machine stops working, then you'll either have to replace them (expensive) or if the quality is still ok, then reset them. Take a look here.

Error Message: Replace Black PCU


I'm not sure how to obtain one, but "Black PCU" stands for Black Photoconductor Unit, and according to a manual for a different Ricoh printer model, it should be fairly simple to replace if you can find one.
