My printer's nuts!

How can I get fix the "Replace Black PCU" warning on my RICOH Aficio CL2000N? Thanks!

  • LabMan Dec 04, 2007

    I have changed the Black PCU with a new OEM unit. I still get the warning on the LCD and can not use the printer. Any ideas on how to reset the unit or what sending unit is broken?

    Also replaced the Black PCU and error won't go away. I have tried taking out all PCUs and replacing, turning off and on. Error still there but it will print.

1. When the red replace color or black PCU light comes on you dont lose control of your printer. You can still print.

2 Most Ricohs have built in meters for the supply parts. The meter might need to be reset in this case.

I had the same problem. Since I knew my PCU was still good, I figured it was just the connections. I repeatedly fiddled with it - PCU in & out, wiped clean, held in place as I closed the latch plate. I finally got a long, skinny cleaning brush (a wierd feather-duster thing my wife uses for cleaning tops of books on the bookcases) and cleaned the slot out; that seemed to help. Note that I took great care because I was not sure what I was touching, and I did not want to leave any 'feathers' snagged inside.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines

Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Error code sc440

Black drum motor error. These machines are bad about the waste toner building up in the drum unit. You could try and take the auger out of the drum unit(very messy) and clean it out or try replacing the black pcu.

Error message says reset PCU correctly

You get this message because the PCU isn't seated properly. This is a link for the user manual for this printer: http://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/manuals/printers/cl2000.pdf On page 13 shows a diagram that indicates the photoconductor unit on the printer. Page 60 shows you different error messages, what they mean and how to fix it. It means you have to take out the pcu and reseat it into the printer, it is not in correctly. Page 29 shows you how to do this. It has pictures of how to take out the pcu and put it in correctly. I hope you get it fixed.
