    The thermistor and Heat lamp are still in good shape - the error appeared after a power outage. I just to reset the error code and don't know the right code to reset.

Excuse me, but, every single Ricoh machine has a fuser reset procedure. In this case it would be:

Enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select “1”. Then simultaneously press
the Original Type key and the OK (or
R/#) key. (There is no need to turn the
main switch off and on.).

Fuser temperature warm up error. Hot roller warm up error. It could need a new thermistor or a heat lamp. That will make the error go away.

    Ricoh machines unfortunately do not have a service code for reseting the fuser.  If a power outage occurred, it's possible that the thermistor blew out due to a power surge.  It's an inexpensive item to replace.

Transformer blew at our office yesterday, now calling for a service call, error code SC542???


sc542 is a fuser temperature error code, which could either be something simple (a bad sensor reading) or something serious (a blown thermostat). Either way you'll need to have your service technician come take a look at it and reset the code. (Unfortunately, turning the printer off and back on won't help.)

We had power failure today and now after unplugging it and just turning the power off our Ricoh still has SC542 as an error code- - please let us know as to what we should do- should we try something else...


You should have a service technician come look at the machine. sc542 is a fuser code, which could mean that a thermostat was blown, or it could be a dirty or defective thermistor. A Ricoh technician will be able to inspect the fuser and make that determination, and hopefully get you up and running right away!

Error sc 547


Found this from:
http://slayo.com/ricoh-cl4000dn-error-code-sc542.html


Ricoh CL4000DN Error Code SC542
Turns out error SC542 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.
A few phone calls with our local Ricoh service rep, and he admitted that the printer might trip this error in a power brownout.
The printer was less than 30 days old and the error was caused by the brownout or the fuser failed. I kept calling the Ricoh rep, and they finally gave me the magic keystrokes over the phone.
I did the magic keystrokes, cleared the error code, and the printer worked fine. It’s been working great for a year now.
I hope someone else who has this problem finds this page and is able to fix the problem also. I didn’t find any help on the net when I searched.

The Fix In order to clear error SC542, you must perform procedure 5810.
  • Press and hold online + escape, then power on.
  • Use up and down arrow keys to select SP2
  • Press Enter
  • Use up and down arror to locate SP5
  • Press Enter
  • Use up and down arrow keys to select 810
  • Press Enter
  • Confirm the selection
  • Power off and on.
The error code is now cleared.

Hope this helps!

Error sc542


"clear modes", 1, 0 , 7, then (hold) "clear/stop" for a few seconds until "sp mode" comes up. turn main power off/on (red switch).
If code comes back there is trouble with the fuser that needs to be repaired to clear code permanently.

Savin 2522 sc542 error code


It's a fusing warm up error. The temperature isn't reaching the right rate within 20 seconds.

There isn't a reset procedure due to safety reasons. If you replace the thermistor, it should go away.
