    Open the fusing unit and see dose the Termistor is OK it might be dirty or damaged, the SC code can be reset by entering the service menu and shut down the machine and turn it again.
    For to enter the service menu follow the next procedure:

    1. Press the (yellow key) [clear modes]
    2. Type the keys as follows: " 1 → 0 → 7 "
    3. Press the (red key) key [Clear / Stop]
    and hold it down until the SP-mode menu is displayed (about 3 seconds).
    4.Than Turn OFF the machine and again after 3 seconds turn it ON.
    That will reset the SC code 542 only if there has no problem with the termistor.
    PLEASE RATE ME IF THIS HELP YOU

Hi,
SC 542 is for fusing unit, touch yellow/clear key then press 1 0 7 and hold down "Stop" key for 10 second. LCD screen will change, turn off the machine from the main switch (not the top panel switch) wait for five second turn it ON. If code comes back then you need a thermistor or a fuse.
regards

The 542 is a fusing thermistor error code.
Basically, there is a little thermistor in the hot section of the machine what senses how hot the machine gets too. Sometimes toner particals can get clogged up on the thermistor. Luckily though, this error can be reset on almost all ricoh machines.

Simply press,
(yellow clear), (1), (0), (7), (red stop * 5secs)
Make sure you hold the red stop button for 5 seconds, and make sure you enter this code while you are in copy mode.

Your screen will change, showing a few different SP modes,
Hold the hash button, and choose Copy SP
The screen will change once more, at this point simply turn the machine of at the main power.

This will reset your error code =] If the code decides to come back again it might be a good idea to get the machine checked out by a certified ricoh rep.

ta!

You need a firmware update…

SC542 SP1-103-2 Off + Temp has been newly added to prevent SC542 from occurring at machine power-on under low-temperature conditions.
Note: For this fix, it is necessary to use Controller firmware ver5.15.1 or newer.

SC542 is a warm up error from the fuser.

SC 870 is an address book error.

Turn the power off on the copier. Wait 30 seconds and then turn the power back on. See if it goes away.

Let me know if it doesn't.

I do not recognize either of these codes (187 or 387) as part of the Aficio 2015 error list.

If the code is displayed on the screen, physically TURN OFF the copier with the main switch (red switch), wait 10 seconds and turn it back on. If it's an erroneous error, this should reset the error code. NOTE: THE ERROR CODE MUST BE DISPLAYED FOR THIS TO WORK.
