SC542, SC543, SC544,
SC546, These codes are related to fuser temperature. Make sure that
power source voltage are not low. check thermisters, fusing lamps etc. To reset
this code press "All clear" yellow key, enter 107 and press the red key for some
seconds. Sevice mode will be displayed, enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select "1". Then hold down the Photo mode key and the # key at the same time for
at least 3 seconds
my printer is an hp but not the model. i was having the same error though. i unplugged the power from the back for 20 seconds,held the power button while plugging it back in, then held the # and 6 while turning it back on and that fixed it
Error SC 542 indicates a fuser temperature problem. Once the error is detected, the printer is toast until you manually clear the error from the keypad. Even though the printer is physically fine, it won?t come ready until the prior error condition is cleared.
The magic keystrokes, clear the error code:
The Fix In order to clear error SC542, you must perform procedure 5810.

I had the exact same issue with one of these printers. 83C00020 on the display with a blue background. printer will not power off. Try this - Press and hold the OK button then press the power button to reset the printer . I did this and it powerd on ok and is now working fine.
But first the background: I have an older model HP G85 printer that's a real workhorse and I love it but when I lost power that c00f0401 code came on and I couldn't clear it. So I called HP support and found them USELESS. A search of the Internet tells you to hit the #6 keys to clear it. Some say hit #9 to clear it and others say to hit #5 keys and still others tell you to disconnect the 'self-feeder' tray cable. I eventually cleared it by hitting the #9 key while simultaneously pressing the ON button. I did that about 50 times then it cleared itself and worked fine for a year. However last week I again lost power and when the power came back on again I couldn't clear it no matter how many times I tried.
SO HERE'S MY LATEST CURE and it worked several times in a row--so I think it will always work in the future.
1. Turn printer off 2. With your left hand hond down simultaneously the 5, 6, 9, and # keys an rhytmically press those keys up and down, up and down, (at the rate of about 3 times a second). AND AT THE SAME TIME: Use a finger from your right hand and press the on/off button rhytmically (at the rate of about 3 times a second). Eventually the INITILIZING light will stay light---then take all your fingers off all keys. 3. After waiting a short time (a minute or son) the computer initializes itself and it works fine.
Anyway, it worked for me each time I tried it. I hope it works for you.
