SOURCE: Ricoh copier MP 6000 error code

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

SOURCE: error code SC542, unable to clear message from

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 te 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 isnt any build up of toner on thermistors..hope this helps good luck A

Error sc 547


Found this from:

Ricoh CL4000DN Error Code SC542
Turns out error SC542 indicates a fuser temperature problem. Once the error is detected, the printer is toast until you manually clear the error from the keypad. Even though the printer is physically fine, it won’t come ready until the prior error condition is cleared.
A few phone calls with our local Ricoh service rep, and he admitted that the printer might trip this error in a power brownout.
The printer was less than 30 days old and the error was caused by the brownout or the fuser failed. I kept calling the Ricoh rep, and they finally gave me the magic keystrokes over the phone.
I did the magic keystrokes, cleared the error code, and the printer worked fine. It’s been working great for a year now.
I hope someone else who has this problem finds this page and is able to fix the problem also. I didn’t find any help on the net when I searched.

The Fix In order to clear error SC542, you must perform procedure 5810.
  • Press and hold online + escape, then power on.
  • Use up and down arrow keys to select SP2
  • Press Enter

Hope this helps!
