You just have to press the "yes" button. Watch the display. It says "Change PCU Y/N"

make sure you have the correct cartridge as the SF560 & SF560R use different cartridges

SOURCE: low toner message

sounds like you have a bent toner sensor. turn the machine off and take the toner out and place on the side

what you could try to do is grab a piece of paper fold it in 4 like so
__ __
|__|__| __
|__|__| then rip one piece like so |__|

then rip one piece off and fold that 5 times over it self.

look into where the toner goes in the middle you will see a silver bracket with a black round piece of plastic on the top left conner you need to put that piece of paper under that coner where the black circle is and turn the machine back on then put the toner in.

if this does not work you need a tech to look at it

What does time to change pcu mean?


Hi, PCU stands for photo conductor unit, most of us call it a drum unit. You should be able to order from any office supply. It is easy to install and will come with directions.

Ricoh 3310l fax shows error code 0390H in display. Anyone know what this means?


I've never seen a message like that with the 0390H code. There is no mention of that code in either the user manual or service manual. The closest thing is the sc390 code, which means either the toner density sensor or the developer has gone bad, and typically replacing the PCU can fix that problem.

If the new PCU doesn't fix the problem, you might want to try calling Ricoh for support, since their documentation doesn't mention that code.

Hi.when i m switch on the Ricoh 3310L Fax,the message is coming as shown below "time to change PCU"


Order a new PCU from Ricoh. Power off the machine and replace the pcu.
If you try and cheat it it will run for a short while and then lock-up breaking some gears. Cheeper just to order a pcu. Check Ebay, i see alot of Ricoh supplies there.
