SC878 means incorrect updating for the system firmware or defective flash ROM on the controller board manual says : Replace the controller board.

It's probably happening because the cleaning blade on the drum needs to be changed or replaced.

SOURCE: Ricoh MP 5000, says it has a paper jam, but I

if the jam still shows when you turn the machine off and on then you will have to look first to see which tray you were using at the time take the tray out and look inside the frame to see if paper has stuck by the feed rollers then open the side paper path guide to check non is on teh way up from there the next is reg transfer and fuser sections also pull the duplex out to make sure its not under the travel plateand last is to check betweent ehfuser exit and finisher opent he dooor on finisher if you have one and lift the plate at top right had the paper can sometimes be hidden there... failing that the sensor for the paper exit from fuser to duplex can sometimes jam a small bit there...if you know how to get into the sp modes you can go to data log 1 there you have the jam counters and jam history look at latest and the area will show up where it could be last. good luck A..

SOURCE: My Ricoh Aficio MP 161 said to add toner but still won't copy

Check your old toner bottle and make sure the plastic "cap" is still in the bottle. These machines have an occaisional problem with the caps coming off (not the black screw off cap but the semi clear cap under the black screw off cap) and staying inside the black plastic "cup" that you insert the toner into. If the cap is missing it may be stuck inside this cup. If the cap is still in your old cartridge then try opening/closing the front door and letting the machine cycle to see if the toner light goes out. May have to do this several times. Had one customer just yesrday have to do this to clear the toner light after adding toner.
Good Luck.
