    SC530-18 Functional Problem MP9003

    Issue with Tray 3 feed unit, just stalls every 10 pages or so. Swapped with tray 2 feed unit, and they both work (for now....).
    Tray 2 will also become useless until machine is rebooted, but only 3rd tray indicated 'out of service'.
    Anyone have a definitive code description for this? Only have -2 series and this subcode is nowhere to be found. Assuming feed unit motor, or connector issue.

    Looks like you may have to contact Ricoh over this one. My version of the Service Manual only goes as far as SC530-16 and I can't find a RTB referring to that SC either.

    SC530-01 to 16 refer to cooling fan problems so that may give you somewhere to start.
    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    Paper feed unit fan 3 error
    After the fan turns on, the fan lock signal is checked at 1 sec. intervals.

    • Due to an obstruction or other problem, the lock signal went HIGH 1.5 s after the fan turned on and remained HIGH for 6 consecutive counts.
    • The lock signal should remain LOW during normal operation.
    • The fan stopped and then the machine stopped.
    • Fan motor overload due to an obstruction.
    • Fan motor connector, harness loose, broken, defective.
    • Fan motor defective.
    • Inspect the area around the fan for obstructions that could interfere with the rotation of the fan blades.
    • Inspect harness, connector and replace if damaged.
    • Replace PFU fan 3.

    Nice - thank you guys. Machine only has 50K on it, so I'm expecting it was a connector issue and not defective fan.
    Will update if returns.
