If it says there is no toner but you have toner in there, pull out the toner bottle and feel in the hopper (where the toner bottle sits) -- sometimes the gray cap from the old toner bottle gets left behind, and that will block the machine from pulling toner from the new bottle. Remove the cap and your copier should be fine.

If that doesn't fix it, you might need a new PCU. Once they start to get old, the developer gets bad and they don't have the right mix of toner and developer.

It's not the PCU (photoCONDUCTOR unit), It's either a thermistor or blown out heater lamp in the fuser. Call a tech. The code can only be reset in service mode

If I'm not mistaken, that type of photoconductor is not compatible with your particular model of machine. The SC542 and SC548 errors are related to the fuser unit. It is not warming up correctly. It could be that it needs replacement thermostats or thermisters. It's possible that the incompatible drum unit has created this problem.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. This is not a quick fix since the problem is the hardware part of the machine

SC792 - Projector Lamp Overheat, Finisher Connection Error

SC731 - Finisher Exit guide Plate Motor Lock Output Tray Motor Error

You can also refer to the Service Manual for the meaning of the error codes.

It is better to call a local tech or Ricoh for repair and diagnostics of the parts that has been damage.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya

Ricoh aficio 2022 replace photoconductor unit


Photo conductor unit is the drum unit inside the copier . It contains developer and toner which are the ink as some people refer to it. It is a consumable part and needs to be replaced every 60k copies but can and dies last longer. You can ignore it and once copy quality is ok I wouldnt bother changing it but you will eventually need to replace it.

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.

Printing problem


Pull out the color photo conductor unit. If you see lines on any of the green drums replace the color photo conductor unit. You can also get color registration errors if the transfer unit is scrached. my first recomendation is to look at the color pcu unit and replace it if you see any lines on it. Also pull out and inspect the black pcu unit.Let me know what you find.

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
• Voltage between pins 2 and 14 (CN12 on engine
control board) abnormal (not +24V), or pin 12
(CN12 on engine control board) unable to send
motor clock
• Defective CMY PCU drive motor
1. Replace the CMY PCU.
2. Replace the engine control board.

I would try replacing the CMY PCU (Drums (Photo Conductor Units) first before any of the others.
