    Service manual states -





    320 B Polygonal mirror motor error

    The polygon mirror motor does not

    reach operating speed within 10

    seconds after the motor ON signal is

    sent, or does not turn on within one of

    the 200 ms check intervals during

    operation.



    fix is

    • Polygon mirror motor defective

    • Poor connection between the

    polygonal mirror motor driver and the

    BiCU board

    • Damaged cable between BiCU/IOB

    and polygonal mirror motor driver

    poly motor failure is common is copiers, it is a little motor that spins super fast and bonces laser light over page via attached mirror, the motors pack it in, the motor lives inside the laser unit

    Yes I change about 3 a week in the field on various makes models, you could try a drop of machine oil on motor shaft but that means pulling it apart, refitting only to find more than likely you will need to replace it anyway

SOURCE: Ricoh Aficio 1018 photocopier

For the Aficio 1018. SC-320 is laser failure - the polygon mirror motor inside the laser has failed and needs replacing. You will need to contact your nearest service agent for repair.

For your RICOH Aficio 1013F - SC-551 is overheat in standby mode as far as I can tell. The circuitry that controls the fuser section ie manages the heat has problem. Unless its right near a source of heat like a heater or has no circulation around you machine you will need contact a repair agent for this machine also.

Functional problem sc 390 on ricoh photocopier, despite replacing drum, developer,blade,gears. after removing 9 copies it reads functional problem.

SC 390 on an Aficio 1018 will most likely be a bad TD (toner density) sensor, if you've already replaced the drum and developer. (One thing to check quickly though is to pull the PCU out and reinstall it, just to make sure that connection isn't the problem.)

You can either replace the TD sensor by itself, or replace the DV unit (which probably won't be much more expensive). But either way, you'll need to install new developer when you replace the parts.

When my ricoh afico 1018 printor is on error corde desplay sc320?

SC320 is a polygon mirror motor error. It could be caused by a poor connection or a faulty circuit board, but the most likely culprit is the polygon mirror motor itself. Replacing this motor (part #G0291961) is the most likely solution.

Hope that helps!

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.
