Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Shows error code SC542 what is this and can I fix it.
THIS IS USUALLY FOR THE FUSER SECTION IT MAY BE THAT SOME TONER HAS BUILT UP ON THE THERMISTOR AND IT AINT READUNG THE TEMP PROPERLY AT WARM UP OR ON A RUN IT HAS TO OVERHEAT TO GET RIGHT READING TAKE THE FUSER OUT CHECK THE THERMISTORS.. YOU COULD ALSO GO INTO THE SERVICE MODE VIA CLEAR ALL THEN 107 AND HOLD DOWN THE RED STOP BUTTON TILL THE SCREEN CHANGES IF YOU LOOK FOR COPIER SP IN THE FEED SECTION THE FUSER SETTINGS ARE THERE YOU CAN OPEN FUSING TEMP AND CHECK THE TEMPS AT THE TIME TO SEE IF THEY ARE RIGHT.. IF IT SEEMS RIGHT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A READ ERROR AND BY GOING INTO MODE AND LOOKING FOR 5- 810 YOU CAN RESET THE SC TURN OFF AND THEN BACK ON IT SHOULD CLEAR... GOOOD LUCK A

• Defective thermistor
• Incorrect installation of the thermistor
• Defective fusing lamp
• Defective power supply unit
You can try resetting the code using this sequence...
Press the Yellow button, 1,0,7, Press & hold red stop button until machine beeps and the display changes. Then turn the copier off and back on.
Hopefully the machine will now come to ready. OIf not the likely cause is either ther thermal fuse or heater lamp.
Hope this helps
