Ricoh FT5832 Copier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

This is a very old machine but the code indicates an exposure problem. a sensor is not dectecting the exposure lamp comeing on when it should. This can only be solved with a service call. Possible optics board problem or a bad connection from the exposure area to tne circuit board. Remove the back of the machine an ensure all connections coming from the lamp area are plugged in. remove and reinsert the connectors. You might get lucky and that is all it is.

Fuser installation error. Fusing unit set error. Remove the fusing unit out of the machine and reinsert it. It isn't seated in there properly. Once you do that the error code will go away.
