    My rating was based on the fact that I precisely stated that I was seeking information of how to enter SERVICE MODE in order to reset a fuser malfunction error code. The advice presented was for reseting a user error which would occur upon the expiration of a fuser. Thus the advice provided was inapproriate for the requested problem. Now, the problem is that this printer has a 544 fuser error, which was defective, and the fuser has been replaced. however, the machine will not function until the SERVICE ERROR is reset, which must be done in SERVICE MODE. Thus my query, how to enter SERVICE MODE to reset the error. By the way, I have the service manual and the procedure for entering service mode is not clear to me and I need assistance. Thank you in advance for your help.

Ricoh SP 111 with C8 Error:

The C8 is a fuser error. As a safety feature, the machine will be disabled (to prevent fire and what not.. )

The service manual says that SC542 is caused by a too low fuser temperature, after 5 readings.
Since the hot roller was 5°C below the reload
(operating) temperature the fusing thermistor is deformed or out of position or full of gunk (toner residue). Or there may be a piece of paper between the sensor and the hot roller.
The fusing lamp harness can also bee loose, broken or defective.
The fusing unit can be defective
After servicing the machine to solve the problem, the service
technician must execute a "Fuser SC Reset". Otherwise, the machine
will continue to issue this SC code and cannot be operated.

Executing Fuser SC Reset
1. After correcting the problem, open Smart Organizing Monitor.
2. Enter the service mode to display the Service Mode screen.
3. On the Service Mode screen, click [Fuser SC Reset]. This releases the fatal fusing error
which locks the machine.
4. Select "On" for Fuser SC Detect. This setting shuts down the machine if three successive
paper jams occur in the fusing unit.

Sir ricoh sp310dn sc543 error /but 2 key no display

This is related to SP311 models.

Execute "Fuser SC Reset" to recover the machine after completing the
recovery procedure. Otherwise, the machine continues to issue this SC
code and cannot be operated.

Fusing related SCs
To prevent damage to the machine, the main machine cannot be operated until the fusing related
SC has been reset by a service representative.
? Enter the "Engine Maintenance" in the "Maintenance mode".
Press "Execute" in "Fuser SC Reset" with engine maintenance mode, and then turn the main
power switch off and on.

This is the solution from Ricoh website:

Please press Menu. Then scroll to Maintenance and press Enter. Scroll to Color Regist and press Enter. Scroll to Color Regist Auto Adjust and then press Enter to Auto adjust. If after completing the procedure the error persists, please contact your service representative for support.
