    The props should go to jonhiker....and my apologies too, because he was the one that first mentioned SP7804
    Why didn't they just leave it as an automatic reset and calibration? Now there are 2 Sp's to run, that were previously performed automatically. Foolishness.

    That's Ricoh for you. MP 4000 and 5000 required resetting two SPs when you replaced the cleaning web. The original service manual only gave you one. Bulletin 036 gave you both. If you did not reset both at the same time and then reboot, the service web message would not go away.

    The problem is they're trying harder and harder to do two things:

    1. Over-engineer perfectly good machines

    2. Double dip by offering the PCU as a consumable supply item while still needing a service call to replace it properly.

    All of the manufacturers are getting good at this kind of thing. At this rate, the next version will need a rebuildable PCU like the DLT models of the same speed.

    Lightbulb Re: MP301 - new PCU, but "Replace PCU" alert remains in web console

    Here's what I found...

    SP7804 works on the 301's

    for the 161/171/201's use SP5912 and set the alarm interval to 0 (disabled)

    for the 1515, also use SP5912 but set to 1 (do not display)

    For the last two, this should stop the messages from ever showing again (if that's what you really want).

    from 161/171 service manual:
    5912* PCU Alarm Counter [0 to 255 / 45 / 1/step]
    Printout
    5912 1
    Specifies the PCU alarm level. The PCU alarm is issued when the following
    condition is met:
    PAc x 1000 >= PCUc
    where PAc is the value specified in this SP and PCUc is the PCU counter.
    When you specify 0 (zero), the PCU alarm is deactivated.
