20 Most Recent Ricoh Aficio 250 Copier Questions & Answers


Polygon mirror motor error/lock. Unplug the copier. Wait 20 seconds. Plug it back in. See if that makes it go away.

Otherwise you should get a hold of a service technician but getting parts for a 250 is very tough. It could be the polygon motor, the power supply, a cable, or a board. It will take some time to troubleshoot.

Try getting into service mode and see if you can reset the user passwords by turning them off in the settings.

Do you know how to get into service mode?

You copier does not use ink, but toner. And because the "ink" detector is on, it could be the toner cartridge is empty.
Try to remove the toner cartridge and shake it firmly. than replace it. This could help for a few copies, but you must order new toner, if the sheets of paper keep coming up blank.

SC 320 - Polygon motor error.
The polygon motor does not reach its operating speed within 10 sec. after the polygon motor on signal,or the lock signal is not detected for more than 40 ms continuosly during operation.
Possible causes polygon motor defective,poor conection of the interface harness which connects the polygon motor driver and the IOCSS board, IOCSS bboard defective.
The SC can be reset by turning the main switch OFF and ON if the SC was caused by a sensor error.
To reset SC press yellow key 1 - 0 - 7 and STOP ( red ) key for 3 seconds,enter in the SP mode, enter SP 5-810 ( SC code reset) and select "1".Then hold down the Photo mode key and the # key at the same time for at least 3 seconds(this does not require the main switch to be turned off and on).
