Check/adjust the door interlocks. I remember the trainer saying they have been known to can cause weird or inconsistent error codes because 24VDC is cut with the door switches.

I have the same exact issue right now. Have you checked you wall power? I have a customer whose power is going down as far as 198 volts and this can cause motors to give u these errors due to non correct voltages. There currently working with there power company to get the voltage where its supposed to be. I would check that first before going crazy.
Fault still occured with Fiery disconnected.
Changed the Charge units, did not cure fault.
Attended today with Ricoh Tech support.
Found a problem with the 24v VINT supplies leaving Relay Board PCB6 G178 5281 (UK version, PtoP Sheet 1, J8) going to IOB1. 24v lines from the PSU to the Relay Board were ok.
Coversations with various contacts via telephone confirmed the existence of 9 (?) green leds registering voltage supply to the IOB. As the codes appeared, these leds would flicker or turn off completely. The leds are labeled confirming the VINT voltages were those being lost.
Have ordered the Relay Board and hope it cures the problem.
It seems this board may be connected with transfer problems (codes?) as well.

Relay Board between PSU (PCB2) and IOB 1, Supplies 24v VINT to the IOB and in turn triggers to Drum Cleaning Motors / Paper Exit Motor and Charge Units.
Fault can be by observing the bank of 8(9?) vertical LED's at the centre of IOB 1. These should be lit constantly when machine is running and identify various input voltages to the IOB.
Pull out the control box, the Relay Board is on the main machine behind the PSU at the lower right corner.
If the LED's flash / turn off it can be the relays on the Relay Board dropping out. (WHY not solid state relays as changed on the old FT4490 machines to cure similar issues??)
There are rumours that this relay board can cause Transfer codes as well.
It seems that Ricoh (At least in the UK) have had a run on these boards and questions are being asked in Japan. Expect mods soon??
Thanks to RUK Tech support for help with this one.
