Why is it that am i getting a 585 and a 495 errors simultaneously on two of the same machines

You did not post the model number. I assume it is a larger machine such as a MP9000. The SC495 is a clogged toner hose from the cup to the toner sub-hopper. If the toner system is not clogged it is a bad toner pump, or sometimes it is a bad toner sensor on the sub-hopper or the cup on top of the auger from the toner bank. If the hose is not clogged and there is toner to the top of the sub-hopper then it is one of the sensors. They are identical.

sc495 is a problem with the toner supply system. It may be as simple as a clump of toner clogging up one of the hoses, or it could be a bad toner end sensor or bad motor failing to transport the toner.

I have a Gestetner DSm651sp and it is giving me an error code of sc495, I recently replaced the toner and its not detecting it. Please help!

Most likely the toner dispenser is blocked. Its not getting the ink into the system. Did you shake the bottle well to be sure its not packed inside the bottle?

Ricoh 2051SP error code J013 & SC495

SC495 is a toner recycling system error, due to strain on the system. Most likely due to a blockage. system needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. J013, is simply a jam, and this would be happening because of the toner recycling system being locked up, and seizing the motor. You DEFINITELY need a tech for this.
