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..

Now when i put my photocopy machine on the SC542 code error appears So i need a solution for this problem


Hi rfofie,

There's no specific brand or model you have mentioned on the issue that you needed help. However, I can provide you the meaning of the error code that you are getting. The SC542 error code is a Fuser Temperature Error. That means that the fuser did not warm up fast enough. You will have to replace the fuser to get rid off the error.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

SC542 error code


Without a model, I can't give you a lot of information, but I am assuming it is a Ricoh machine (Possibly Lanier/Gestetner, same difference), as that's the format of their error codes. An SC542 error code is a Fuser Temperature Error, meaning that the fuser didn't warm up fast enough. It is extremely likely that you will have to replace the fuser unit before the error code will go away. Please give me a model number if you need more information and I will try to be a bit more precise with the information. Thanks.

We had power failure today and now after unplugging it and just turning the power off our Ricoh still has SC542 as an error code- - please let us know as to what we should do- should we try something else...


You should have a service technician come look at the machine. sc542 is a fuser code, which could mean that a thermostat was blown, or it could be a dirty or defective thermistor. A Ricoh technician will be able to inspect the fuser and make that determination, and hopefully get you up and running right away!
