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.

How do I get error code SC2552 off for this printer?


Do you mean SC552? If that is it, then clean the thermistors in the fusing unit. Go into SP Mode, then while in SP Mode turn off the main power switch. It is ready to go.

Operating problem for copier machine


SC552 is a fusing thermistor error. Thermistor is in the fuser section. This code is for the END thermistor. You can also try to just reset the code. Enter the SP mode (service program) by entering the following keys.
CLEAR MODES, 1 0 7 and hold the CLEAR STOP key down till the maintenance screen appears. Press COPY SP on the touch panel then turn OFF the MAIN POWER SWITCH then turn it back on and see if it clears. NOTE: The "MAIN POWER SWITCH" is of the left side of the machine, NOT the top right side.

Fuser replacement for my ricoh


Generally it is recommended to have a tech do this. the reason being that if you accidently touch the fuser wire the oil from fingers can fritx it. There is a counter to reset but all the playing around to do this ( with a warranty if it goes wrong) is better to have it done by the tech.

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

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.
