Item #: SCP-C777

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-C777 is kept in a standard storage locker at Site-99. Testing is currently scheduled for weekdays at 2:30 PM.

Description: SCP-C777 appears to be an HP LaserJet 1020 device. Likewise, individual components of SCP-C777 appear to be the appropriate components of an HP LaserJet 1020 device. The following evidence suggests, however, that SCP-C777 is not an HP LaserJet 1020 device:

  • When components from SCP-C777 are installed in a device of the same purported model, that device will fail to function. Likewise, SCP-C777 will fail to function if any of its parts are replaced.
  • Computers will not transfer any data to or from SCP-C777, despite recognizing the device and successfully using it.
  • SCP-C777 does not generate heat when operating, despite consuming electricity.
  • When SCP-C777 jams, the paper caught in it will be found undamaged.
  • SCP-C777 is slightly moist to the touch, even when dry. Further, it is immune to water damage.
  • Noises produced by SCP-C777 during operation, while generally consistent with its ostensible function, do not correspond with the actual movements of its mechanical parts.
  • When used, SCP-C777 will produce objects that lack the visual imperfections (i.e. uneven distribution of ink) associated with its method of operation.

Testing has allowed researchers to make the following inferences about SCP-C777:

  • It is a solid physical object.
  • It is ectoentropic.
  • It is chemically consistent with an HP LaserJet 1020 device.
  • It is not biological in nature.
  • It is not cognitohazardous, infohazardous, illusory, or otherwise noetically disjoint.
  • It is not self-repairing.
  • It is not autonomous.

SCP-C777's current containment procedures are considered provisional until its nature can be discerned.
