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.

SC542 error


Thats a fuser error. Thermistors needs to be replaced. Alternatively you can try clearing the code in sp mode push yellow button 107 and hold red button. Select 1 and the 5 (mode) then clear scs.

To reset fuser SC codes you need to enter Service Programme Mode and reset SP5-810 to 1, then turn the main switch off and on again. If you need help on entering SP mode etc. then take a look here.

How do i remove the code 'replace fuser unit type(c)


Sorry but in my experience there is no way to remove that error. We have a Ricoh APC4500 and i had to call in tech support to come and replace the fuser. If you do not have a warranty or a service contract with Ricoh then this might be expensive. WHat you could do is purchase the fuser from them and install it yourself but there is no "cheap" fix that i know of"

Hope this helps

Error message - Reset Oil Fuser Unit Correctly


The fuser oil sits on top of the fuser and has silver contacts on it. Sometimes the contacts in the machine get bent. Turn off the printer and check the contacts and if bent use needle nose pliers to make straight again. Make sure the contacts on the fuser oil are not drity.

SC 553 is a fuser overheat error. If you have a fuser great, but you will still have to reset the code. Clear modes, 1, 0 ,7, press and hold clear/stop key. Menu will change, select copy sp. From there, select 5, (mode), scroll till you get to 5810. Select it, and press execute, then exit back to copy sp. Select 7 (data log) then scroll until you get to 7807. Select it, and press execute. Exit all of the way out, and recycle the power.

If it comes to ready, great. Try it. If it codes out again, you have a problem, possibly thermisters, (in the fuser), power supply getting stuck on, I/O board not regulating the power supply. Could be any of these things.

But start by resetting the code. Could be a a thermister got some toner stuck under it, and the other thermister detected a difference. It really could be that easy.
