Try replacing the thermistor. Those rectangular plastic thing. If that doesnt work the thermometer has popped. Check for continuity beneath the hot roller there are these round things. When done with that clear the SC code in SP mode do what Dale told you to do. You have to clear these codes on the older models.

Turn the machine on, and press clear modes, 1, 0 ,7, and press and hold the clear stop key. It will beep, and a menu will appear. Select copy SP (1), and then select data log (#7) scroll until you get to 7807 (sc/jam counter reset). select it, and press execute. exit all the way out, and recycle the power. If it comes to ready, it should be ok. If it happens again after that, there is a fuser problem of some sort.

SC 320 - Polygon motor error.
The polygon motor does not reach its operating speed within 10 sec. after the polygon motor on signal,or the lock signal is not detected for more than 40 ms continuosly during operation.
Possible causes polygon motor defective,poor conection of the interface harness which connects the polygon motor driver and the IOCSS board, IOCSS bboard defective.
The SC can be reset by turning the main switch OFF and ON if the SC was caused by a sensor error.
To reset SC press yellow key 1 - 0 - 7 and STOP ( red ) key for 3 seconds,enter in the SP mode, enter SP 5-810 ( SC code reset) and select "1".Then hold down the Photo mode key and the # key at the same time for at least 3 seconds(this does not require the main switch to be turned off and on).

Machine shows a service code of sc 928

The SC - 928 is a Memory error problem.
The machine detects a discrepancy in
the write/read data during its write/read
test (done at power off/on and at
recovery from low power or night/off
mode). To try to reset this code -- Turn the MAIN power switch off, wait about 30 secs. then turn switch back On.

Possible causes:
• Memory defective
• BICU defective
• Poor connection between BICU and
The cheapest repair would be to replace the memory. It is rare the the connections came apart unless some one was in the back of the machine for some reason.

Functional Problem on our Ricoh 1018D

Enter SP mode - Clear (yellow) key, 1 0 7 and hold and press stop (orange) key for 3 seconds.
Enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select “1”. Then switch off and on the machine.
If error still there, probably you have one of the following faulty;
Fusing thermostat open,
Fusing thermistor open or defective,
Fusing lamp open or
Power supply board defective.
Please, first check fusing lamp and thermostat for open circuit.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

Gestetner DSc332

Sometimes a job will get caught up in memory. If you've already tried to reset the job from the copier and from your computer, turn the copier off with the main (orange) power switch and unplug it from the network cable and the wall. Wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in and turn it on.
