    SC 681-11 is a Device ID error (No ID chip). Try getting a Genuine Ricoh PCU and toner.

    You don't need to get into SP mode to reset that code. You need to fix the problem and reboot the printer.

    The problem is likely bent pins on the toner contact inside the printer.
    It's generally pretty easy to tell by looking at it if there is a pin or 2 out of position. I've had varying success rates at bending them back. I usually just replace them

    Oh my, how often do I hear that in the run of a week?
    It would seem to me that everything ever built works until it doesn't.

    Good luck

    These beasts are well known for the bent pins, but you say no. Double/triple check the pins. The toner cartridges are PITA to link to drum unit. When you turn the toner locking lever pay attention to the left of the toner cartridge, the circular piece should cam into the drum. I have seen the right side locked in and the left side not (left side broken) I have been telling customers when time to replace toner, remove drum cartridge and replace the toner outside of machine with drum on a table. It just seems to go back together better that way. I am suspecting that the pins get bent when customer forces toner in and slams the door trying to force it shut. When the toner and drum are in correct position the locking lever moves smoothly. If you are getting resistance, likely they are not in correct position with each other.

    The SC code is not permanent that it needs a reset. When toner and drum are seated properly, the code will go away.

    Yeah, I don't get to do that either
