This error means Pressure roller warm-up. Try a hard reset first - Unplug the printer from the power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and replug everything. If you are still getting the error, try the Fuser reset procedure:
SP5-810 select 1, press and hold the photo mode key and then press and hold
the enter key and wait for 5 beeps.
If the issue still persists, you may have to replace the fuser, or get the machine serviced.
