Re: What is SC305 Error Message - Ricoh 1232C On
I worked on this same code just the other day for a customer. This SC305 code means the charge corona cleaner is not working properly. The charge corona is located behind the large front door, towards the bottom and just left of center. It has a small thumb screw and a white cord with an end on it like a telephone cord. You can try removing the assembly and blow it out carefully with canned air. Be careful about the very thin hairlike wire in the shell. You can also remove the end of the unit and check that the motor is not gummed up. If it is just put a little light oil on it. Just cycle the power off then on again to reset and try.
Usually once they get repositioned properly they will work fine. Sometimes I have replaced the unit with one from a parts machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

This SC code relates to the charge corona cleaner not working or not working properly. the charge corona is located towards the bottom left of the machine after opening the front cover. It will have a screw you can undo by hand and a cable with an end like a telephone cable plug. toner may have fallen in to the unit or the motor that drives the cleaner along the wires has decided to jam up. remove the charge corona and blow it out with compressed air. You can also remove the end of the unit and check that the motor is not gummed up. Be very careful you do not break the hair thin corona wires! Hope this helps.
