Re: functional problem code SC542-00
Enter SP mode > Clear (yellow) button > 1 0 7 > and press and hold the Stop (red) button for 3 seconds.
Then switch off and on the machine.
If error still there, probably you have a problem in the fusing unit.
Possible causes are:
One of the fusing lamp is open circuit;
Fusing unit connector defective; and
Power supply board.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

That code refers to a Laser problem.
It could be toner dirty and only need to vacuum it. But you have to know how to get in the Laser unit.
If you do not have that knowledge i advise you to call your technical support.
Your machine has lost connection with the network. This could be caused by a loose or disconnected ethernet cable, or something has changed on your network such as an IP address change. Most of the time this can be resolved by shutting the copier completely down with the main power switch (not the one on the operation panel) and then turning back on so the machine can reset the network connection. If this does not work then you would need to check your netwrok settings for the copier or contact your IT person who handles network issues.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
Depending on the model, you may just have to enter service mode, and power off/on. For older models you will have to enter service mode, and then run SP5-810, then power off/on. That is assuming that the fuser problem has been repaired prior to running the codes.
SC542 error = Fusing temp. warming-up error. The fusing temp. does not reach the fusing standby temp. within 125 seconds after the main power switch is turned on.
Causes: Thermistor defective or out of position Fusing lamp open Thermofuse open BICU defective Power supply brd defective Poor connections
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POWER FROM THE WALL BEFORE WORKING ON MACHINE
*** replace the thermistor AND the thermofuse*** If one went bad then the other will probably go bad soon. ( 95% it is one of these). You can check lamp first by disconnecting one end and putting a meter on it to see if it is open -- if open then replace.
Turn the machine on, and press clear modes, 1, 0 ,7, and press and hold the clear stop key. It will beep, and a menu will appear. Select copy SP (1), and then select data log (#7) scroll until you get to 7807 (sc/jam counter reset). select it, and press execute. exit all the way out, and recycle the power. If it comes to ready, it should be ok. If it happens again after that, there is a fuser problem of some sort.
