Error SC 542 indicates a fuser temperature problem. Once the error is detected, the printer is toast until you manually clear the error from the keypad. Even though the printer is physically fine, it won?t come ready until the prior error condition is cleared.

The magic keystrokes, clear the error code:

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.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

You either have a defective thermostat (thermistor) in your fuser, or a defective power supply. The error can only be reset by a tech in service mode after the problem is fixed

Function sc:552 problem RICOH AFICIO 2018d


To reset error, enter SP mode by pressing: Clear (yellow) button, 1 0 7, and press and hold the Stop (orange) button for 3 seconds then switch off and on the copier.
If the error is still there, please check the following in the fuser unit;
  • Check and clean or replace the possible defective thermistors or out of position.
  • Fusing heaters open circuit.
  • Thermostats for open circuit.
  • Power supply unit.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

Desperate!!! Ricoh AP3800C Error SC552 fixed last week now back


SC552 means that the pressure roller (Lower roller in the fusing unit located in the left hand door of the machine) is not warming up correctly. Is the copier installed somewhere cold? i.e. a garage? If conditions are ok and damp is not a problem, either the thermistor that controls the pressure temperature is defective, or the lamp that warms it up is defective. They are the two more common problems, might be worth looking for one on ebay. However they are approx 250 pounds so if you can find a second hand one thats cheap for spares I would recommend that. Email me if you have to do this and I will talk you through changing the parts.

Functional problem sc552


I take it this is for a Ricoh?

SC552 is a pressure roller warm up error. It didn't detect the right temperature when it was turned on.

Turn the copier off for 30 seconds and then turn it back on again. If the error message returns, a technician should look at the fuser section to see whats causing the problem.
