Please help me I am desperate, I have a Ricoh CL 3000 and in the middle of printing some color copies and the print just changed color. I did a color registration and now the error light comes on saying Color Regis. Error. I have plugged out the machine and restarted it and nothing is working. Please help as I am really stuck.
I had the same problem with the color cpu and found that the gear/clutch was broken. I put it back on but it still does not register. Where do you find parts like that without replacing the entire unit?
To elaborate - what i see happening is that the yellow toner seems to be missing (and yes I have replaced the toner). All of the other colors are printing fine. What would stop just one color from printing? I am in the Caribbean with no Ricoh center in my island, any help would be appreciated

Re: Error message on my Ricoh CL3000
What do you mean changed color, please elaborate so i can help you out, in similar scenario it could be a sliping clutch that controls the developing unit causing the respective color to disengage while working on, M, C Y, K pls identify which is which, if you can try one of each color independently as a diuagnostic then youcan start from there which color is malfunctioning,remember the combination of each color depends upon each other color, thus maybe is the reason you can see a sudden changed of color

Did you just replace your color PCUs (photoconductor units)? If so, one of the new units may be defective. Try reinstalling the old units to see if the problem goes away (after resetting the machine). If it does, you can replace the PCUs one by one to see which one is bad.
If you still get the sc441 even with the old PCUs (or if you don't have them anymore) install a set of new PCUs and that should fix the problem. On the off chance the problem doesn't go away even with new PCUs, contact your local service company because you may have a bad circuit board, motor, or gear.
sc441 is a drum motor error. It could be caused by anything from a faulty circuit board to a bad motor, but the most likely fix (and the easiest) is to replace the color PCUs (photoconductor units) which I believe all come as one set.
Turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall, then install the new PCUs, plug it back in and turn it on. There's a good chance your printer will work fine. If the sc441 error comes back, you should contact your local service company and have them take a look at it, because the problem is either electrical or mechanical.
go to the control panel, select printers and double check if the Ricoh Aficio CL3000 Laser Printer was selected as a default printer. you can check it by right clicking the printer name and choose set as default.
