Hi I'm sorry to hear that. How old is your Ricoh unit?

Were there any power outages or power surges just prior to this event that you may be aware of?

Thank you

No power outage. It's about 6 years old.

Hi Thanks.

The Ricoh copier error code 441 / SC441 is a development motor lock error code.

This error can mean:
Your Drive mechanism is overloaded (toner clumping in the wasted toner path)
Motor driver board is bad.

To reset this error try the code:
"Clear Mode"+107+"Clear/Stop" hold for 5s.
Turn ON and OFF the Main Switch.

If the problem persists you may need to contact a local service technician to take a look at your copier.
