What does trouble code "SC

Hello Ryan,
It means your device went thru a self check in an effort maintain optimum copy quality. Your device could not get Magenta (pink/red) to even get close to the target values for that color. The most likely cause (and we hope so) is the Magenta development unit is toast. Replace it. But of course there are a myriad of other fun causes. As a sidebar, you might want to consider replacing yellow and cyan at the same time as they tend to croak at pretty much the same time. You have a quite reliable device as a rule. It's worth the cost. Take care. Let fixya know I helped ya please. SPINAL

Error code SC471

SC471 is a Transfer Belt HP error. The transfer belt does not lift in the rear. The rear cam (G060 3894) slips past its locking tab on the square stepped shaft and slips off the side.
The fix: reposition the rear transfer belt lift cam to lock the tab into the square shaft. Secure the locking tab with a tie wrap.
Now this is the solution if you know what you are doing on this printer. I can not even begin to tell you in this forum how to dis-assemble the printer to get the transfer belt unit out and effect this repair. IKON is pretty pricy on labor. I would see if there is an independant guy locally that can do it. Inexpensive repair that I would charge $90 or less for. If you HAVE to call IKON then just make sure they do not try to tell you that you have to replace the transfer belt unit. This repair is all that is needed 90% of the time.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printer was off for two weeks and now error sc471

SC471 means: Belt tension unit cam error. Even though the belt tension unit tires to return to its home position several times, the home position sensor is not activated.

Possible Causes:

Defective transfer belt unit.

Defective transfer belt tension unit.

CN25 Pin 3 on the engine board is unable to send a signal.

Suggested fixes:

Replace the transfer belt unit.

Replace the engine control board.

Replace the transfer belt tension unit.

I would start by opening it up and inspecting the transfer belt and associated parts. Pull them out and re-seat them. Look for broken wires, stripped gears, gunk in the works. Clean it, then put it back together and test.

If you aren't up to it, it is probably time to call the repair man.
