Sorry not possible to be done. All other parts and boards are same on the both models. Even the RAM and the printer\scanner SD card is the same.NV ram is the same. But the controller boards are different for both machines. You will get SC995 if you put a mp4000sp controller board in mp5000sp. SC 995 is compatibility error for the controller board it self.

Hello billboards,
SC 570 means that despite the fact that the the copier had been giving a "FUSER OIL LOW" prompt in the upper left hand corner of the display for quite some time, the prompt was ignored and now the oil is more than low it is empty. You will first need to aquire fusing oil for your machine.Typically it would be purchased from the same source you would aquire toner as it is something that is consumed as the copier is used similliar to toner. Once you have the oil you will need to replenish the copier's supply of oil. To do this you will need to access the back of the machine. Once you are at the back of the machine,look down to the lower right hand corner. You will see a small square panel with what I would describe as an oversized white plastic flathead screw that needs to be turned counterclockwise to release the small panel/cover. Once you remove the cover you will see a clear container witha black screw on cap. Unscrew it,and fill the container with the oil and stop filling when it reaches the neck of the container. Button everything back up and now you are halfway out of the woods. Now we go to the front of the machine. We need to reset the code. There is a yellow rectangular button above the nine key pad used to enter the number of copies you want. Now that you have located it, press it once and then press the "1" then the "0" then the "7" and then press the round red stop button and hold it down until the screen changes and beeps. At this point the display will have several blocks showing. One of the blocks will say "copier".Press the copier block. Now you will have a drop down menu to the left and several options across the top of the display. At the top,from left to right,the fourth box should say "SP DIRECT" and should actually already be highlighted. At this point,merely press "5810" on the keypad and then press the " # " pound sign. The pound sign means enter. At this point you should see a prompt that says something like "SC reset" and there will be a bar below the prompt that says "EXECUTE" .Press the execute button. This resets the code. But now you must turn the main power off (the red switch located next to your left knee on the front panel of the copier) and wait a few seconds. Now turn that switch back on and you should be good to go. I just reviewed my instructions and wanted to stress that the yellow button above the nine key pad says clear/stop. Just wanted to be more specific. I bet you have this problem whipped in no time! I hope this helps.Take care and good luck.And please feel free to let the folks at "FIX YA" know if I helped you. I don't get paid by them but I like the pats on the head . :-) ...........spinal.......

Its a charge corona cleaning error. Try turning the power off, wait 10 seconds and turn it back on.

If that doesn't reset it, it could be the pcu, toner collected on the mechanism.

If turning it off and back on isn't fixing it, you should get a technician to look at it to see what the trouble is.

SOURCE: have error code 990 on ricoh gx 3000 printer how do i clear this?

you can try pulling out and reseating the Waste Ink tank which is located behind the machine behind a plastic door cover (left side of machine as you are looking at it from behind). Turn the machine off and on using the main power switch. If the code comes back then you will more than likely need a new Waste Ink Tank.
