    SOURCE: what shoud I do when error 84 replace

    Hello,
    Photoconductor is the part of the printer where the image gets created this is a very delicate and important part in the Laser printing process. If you open the printer and remove the toner, you should see it sometimes is like a green or blue color. The message 84 is just telling you that the photoconductor has reached the end of life and needs to be replace. Here is also a link on how to do the replacement http://bit.ly/bn2HFc

    Error message: replace pcu


    I believe its asking you to change the photo conductor unit. From what I can tell there are 2. Theres a black photo conductor and a color photo conductor. If its not telling you which one you should be able to print a supplies status page and you can see which one needs to be replaced. I'm not totally familiar with the machine but the PCU's should be located in the cartridge area. I just checked out our supply catalog and you should be able to order them from any office supply store or Ricoh dealer. Just a heads up..from what I'm looking at the black pcu is pretty reasonable, but the color one is $300 plus! For your sake I hope its the black one that needs replacement! You should be able to verify the error message in your user manual and more than likely find the part number for ordering.

    Hi there the following is the description from the service manual hope this helps you Thanks J

    441 PCU (CMY) motor error
    The drive motor of the CMY
    PCU is not locked.
    • Defective gear

    control board) abnormal (not +24V), or pin 12
    (CN12 on engine control board) unable to send
