The SC 326 is -- 2nd laser synchronization error. Meaning, the 2nd laser synchronization signal cannot be detected by the main scan synchronization detector board even if the laser diodes are activated.

Basically your polygonal mirror motor unit is bad and needs to be replaced. You can replace the whole laser unit but that is expensive. When you replace the PMM unit, do so in a still air area -- as to not get anything in the unit. When you get the PMM unit -- contact me and I can walk you through the steps to replace.

The SC 452 is --- Transfer Belt Mark Detection Error. Once you fix the SC 326 error this one should be fixed also.

Nothing official listed for this error code. The SC6xx are electronics related errors.

If there is a HDD, try disconnecting it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad connection to the main electronics board (BCU) or a bad BCU.

Verify your fusing lamp or thermofuse and replace it if necessary

If your circuit is correct, replace the power supply unit

Don't forget reset code :

Enter SP 5-810 (SC code

reset) and select "1". Then hold

down the Photo mode key and

the 7 key at the same time for

at least 3 seconds (this does

not require the main switch to
be turned off and on).

Make sure the paper is loaded properly in the trays. You can try using a different tray or not loading as much paper in the trouble tray.

sc 452 is a thermistor error code for the fusing unit of the copier. Try pressing these buttons in sequence. (yellow key) (1).(0).(7) (red Clear/stop key) and hold the red key down for 5 seconds. When the 3 or 4 boxs appear, turn your copier on and off with the main power switch. If the error code comes back then contact the seller of your copier and ask for technical service.

Do you have the copier feature option installed?
It is most likely just a loose connection on the interface between the main printer unit and scanner section. Turn off main power (red button), and re-seat the connector.

Please let me know and rate solution :)

Hi There,

print out a page from windows paint program of cyan, magenta, and yellow. see which colors are incorrect. that will help you get closer to the problem area.

the drum also may not be screwed in all the way. remove it, and try putting it back in again.

This Code relates to color gamma error in the Yellow development. Possible causes Low toner density in the Y toner,Toner supply Y mechanism problem( not supplying enough toner),Laser exposure problem, image transfer problem. My suggestion would be to ensure you have toner in the cartridge( but by this time it has depleted the developer), and you will need to replace the development unit and possibly the drum Unit. My best guess would be the development Unit.

HI on the machine there should be a auto reduction enlarge all you need to do is press this place the original on the doc feeder and select the paper cassette in which the paper size you want the copy to be on. Once you have selected press the start button and then the reduction or enlargement is calculated for you.

Hope this helps and answers your question.

Thanks J

It depends from machine to machine. on some you just need to enter into service mode and then copy sp or system sp. On other Ricoh machines you need to execute a reset. first of all turn on the machine, and make sure no print jobs are present, or remove the network print or USB print cable and then turn on the machine. This is just to make sure that no print jobs are present, because this will make you to not be able to enter in service mode. This code SC553 also and other similar SC codes like 551,552,544 and etc. are connected with the Fuser unit. Most of the time is just triggered as security for overheat to stop a melting or fire. So if you reset the machine with procedure you may make damage, but in most cases is harmless. But if you reset the SC553 and then after short time reappear than the machine have real problem and need to be fix, do not reset it more than to to times in a row on a short time period. To enter into service mode press the following keys in the following sequence: press the yellow(clear) - then press 1 0 7 (numbers on the keypad) - then press and hold it pressed the red stop button until service mode appear on the screen. when service mode appear on screen enter into (copy sp) or (system sp) depend from the model of the machine. Then with the keypad press 5-8-1-0-# on the screen should appear Fusing SC reset, press execute and after show complete turn off the machine and wait at least 30 seconds, turn it on again. if its ready the sc is clear. But if the sc repeat the machine have a serious problem with the fusing unit and need to be fixed, if you try to reset the machine with this reset to much in short time you may just add more damage. for more detail post the model of the machine.
