Turn off the power for at least 5 to 10 minutes and then on. That code means that the main motor is locked.

This could be a very bad code its "main motor lock", either you have too much load on the drive unit ( paper stuck, locked up pcu or fuser ) and maybe bad BICU board.

Error code sc500

Your main motor is hard to turn.. Check your Drum unit. Pull it out then on the back side you'll find a small agitator gear then tried to turn it. If it doesn't rotate then you might have to change its paddle gears, idle gear or that development sleeve is stuck. Hope it helps.
