SC542 error = Fusing temp. warming-up error.
The fusing temp. does not reach the fusing standby temp. within 125 seconds after the main power switch is turned on.
Thermistor defective or out of position
Fusing lamp open
Power supply brd defective
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POWER FROM THE WALL BEFORE WORKING ON MACHINE
*** replace the thermistor AND the thermofuse*** If one went bad then the other will probably go bad soon. ( 95% it is one of these). You can check lamp first by disconnecting one end and putting a meter on it to see if it is open -- if open then replace.
