Sc486 is a problem with either the engine control board or the drive unit, or the connection between them. One or the other will probably have to be replaced, depending on exactly what's causing the problem.

How do you reset a ricoh aficio cl3000 printer?

If you mean JOB RESET then there is a button near the printer display. If you want to reset some PM call (for PCU or maintenance kit) you must enter the service mode(hold the two UP and DOWN arrows together for about 6 sec and then released it and press ENTER immediately). You will enter service mode . Choose 2. Engine and press ENTER. theh search for 7. DATA LOG and press enter. Then search for SP7804 PM_COUNT_CLEAR and then press enter. There you can reset what you want. Then press escape to main menu and exit
good luck

My RICOH AFICIO CL3000 give me an error message SC441, what to do ?

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.
