Question about Ricoh Aficio SP C242DN Laser Printer
Code SC542, what does this mean?
This is an error for the fuser heat up..the temp is not being maintained or fluctuations.
try this -
press the yellow clear button at top of number pad then enter 107 and hold down the red cancel button..the screen will change
enter the copier sp and select 5.mode arrow down to 5-810 sc reset and execute.
turn machine off..
if the code disappears it could have been just a glitch
if not check the fuser to see if there is heat coming from it
the lamps will come on at the start up.
you can check this by putting a screw driver in the actuator slot to cheat the door switch
if you see the lamp come on then you may just have to clean off the thermistors ..
open the fuser up with the top screws and check that there isn't any build up of toner on thermistors..
