Main scan length detection is
not properly completed ten
consecutive times.
The front (for C&M) or rear (for
K&Y) laser synchronizing
detector boards are used for
the main scan length
detection, which automatically
corrects the main-scan
magnification.
• Damaged or
disconnected cable
between front (C&M)
or rear (K&Y) laser
synchronizing
detector board and
the LD unit
• Incorrect installation
of front (C&M) or rear
(K&Y) synchronizing
detector board (the
beam does not target
the photo detector.)
• Defective front (C&M)
or rear (K&Y)
synchronizing
detector board
• Defective LD unit
After doing any of the following, print ten
jobs or more to see if the same SC code
is displayed:
1. Turn the main switch off and on.
2. Check or replace the cable
connecting front (for C&M) or rear (for
K&Y) synchronizing detector board
and the LD unit.
3. Check or reinstall the front (for C&M)
or rear (for K&Y) synchronizing
detector board.
4. Replace the front (for C&M) or rear
(for K&Y) synchronizing detector
board.
5. Replace the laser optics housing unit.
6. Replace the BCU.
If a synch. detector board cannot be
replaced, do the following as a
temporary measure:
• Disable main scan length detection

Ricoh mpc4500 with sc 221 manual says(Laser synchronizing detection error: start position [K]: LD1),also have old unit with sc 220 want to know what is LD0. LD1 and LDB


Usually these errors are caused by a faulty polygon mirror motor (polygon scanner). The problem here is that the polygon causes the BICU to short out. So you would need to replace the BICU and the laser unit together to rectify this problem.

Ricoh CL 7000 down due to an SC-685


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 :)

Ricoh CL 7000 error code SC 387


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.
