Please open the front door and turn the blue lever in the middle,
remove the Transfer and Separation unit and check if the bushings of the transfer roller are damaged.
If OK, please give some oil on the shaft/bushings of the transfer roller. This unit may be replaced as a whole unit.
If SC401 re-occurs, please check the Photoconductor unit (drum).

A transfer roller current leak signal is detected.
· High voltage supply board defective

Inspect the contacts of the image unit.

    Check to see if the transfer roller fell out of its holders. It is the black roller mounted on the right hand door when open.

    Printer shows error CH551

    Is this actually a Ricoh Aficio 1013F, or another model, because "CH551" is not a ricoh service code?Do you mean "SC551"
    If so, this is a fuser "triac" problem (basically a fuse in the heater unit). It can only be reset in service mode after the problem is fixed...and will require a tech.
