Ricoh Aficio Sp 1000sf AllInOne Laser Printer - Error fuser temp problem

As with all Laser Printers, the fuser temp error can be frustrating. Sometimes, just turning the printer off, then back on corrects the problem. If you've tried this without success, it's time to order a new fuser. Most have been changed to Customer Replaceable Units (CRU)s. The two ways you can tell if that's the case is either the user manual will have it listed in troubleshooting or, open the side of the printer the fuser is on and see if there are finger screws or tabs to release the fuser. NOTE: IF THE FUSER IS HOT, DO NOT TOUCH! YOU WILL BE BURNED!. It takes about 30 minutes for a fuser to cool down to a safe temperature. If you can remove it yourself without tools. Great! Easy take out and replace. If not, a tech will need to come out to remove the fuser and replace it.
I can't believe no one has answered your question until now.

Print Ready Temperature Error
?? The heating roller temperature increase during a set time is not correct.
?? The fusing temperature does not reach the print ready temperature within a
set time after the fusing lamp has turned on.
?? Defective thermistor
?? Incorrect power supply input at the main power socket
?? Defective fusing lamp
1. Check the voltage of the wall outlet.
2. Replace the fusing unit
3. Replace the fusing lamp.
**Execute "Engine Maintenance Menu" to recover the machine after
completing the recovery procedure. Otherwise, the machine continues to
issue this SC code and cannot be operated.

My ricoh aficio mp 2000 have the error sc 542 what i can do to sorve this.

Reset the code via SP Mode (I will not tell you how to enter SP Mode, you must research that). Once you are in SP mode enter System or Copy SP and turn off the machine to reset.

The code is actually referring to a thermistor problem in your fuser, regardless, if your machine is under maintenance request service (obviously, I do not think it is under maintenance or you would not be asking). Other than that, once this thermistor completely flakes out your machine will be rendered useless.
