Error Code SC553

I understand this code to be related to the fuser. I have installed a new fuser yet it still shows the code.

Is there a reset procedure I need to try?

Many thanks in advance.

You are definitely on the right trail, here is what is is. Pressure roller fusing lamp over heat
The detected pressure roller temperature stays at 200°C or more for five seconds. It could be:
• Defective PSU
• Defective BCU
You did the first thing, you will need to try the other two.
1. Replace the fusing unit.
2. Replace the PSU.
3. Replace the BCU.
Remeber the BCU is next to the controller.

All error code soloution of fuser unit Fuser Unit Error Status Counter
Purpose
When a fuser unit related error (error code C41, C43, C44 or C45) occurs, the set value of the fuser status
counter varies, depending on type of error.
Displaying and checking the set value of the fuser status counter can analyze a cause for the error. If
any of "2 to 9" is set at the fuser status counter, the fuser unit will not be operated for safety reasons.
After the fuser unit related error is resolved, if "0" is set, the fuser unit will be operated as usual. If any of
"10 to 19" is set at the fuser status counter, the fuser unit will be operated as usual, even if "0" is not set
after the fuser unit related error is resolved.
C41: Thermistor or heater abnormality at power-ON
C43: Thermistor abnormality after abnormality judgment
C44: Heater abnormality after abnormality judgment
C45: Thermistor abnormality during printing
C46 to C49: Reserved
Description
When this code is used, the current set value of the fuser status counter is displayed. Only "0" can be
manually entered, in order to restore the fuser unit to its normal operation, after the fuser unit related
error is resolved.
For further reason why the counter value differs despite the same error code, refer to 5.1.7 or 5.1.8
[Fuser unit related service call] in the Service Handbook.

Setting Timing

error, and set "0" (or reset the counter), in order to restore the fuser unit to its normal operation.

Error code SC 544


Relates to fuser unit. Needs to be reset from service mode.

Savin C3030


SC 553 is a fuser overheat error. If you have a fuser great, but you will still have to reset the code. Clear modes, 1, 0 ,7, press and hold clear/stop key. Menu will change, select copy sp. From there, select 5, (mode), scroll till you get to 5810. Select it, and press execute, then exit back to copy sp. Select 7 (data log) then scroll until you get to 7807. Select it, and press execute. Exit all of the way out, and recycle the power.

If it comes to ready, great. Try it. If it codes out again, you have a problem, possibly thermisters, (in the fuser), power supply getting stuck on, I/O board not regulating the power supply. Could be any of these things.

But start by resetting the code. Could be a a thermister got some toner stuck under it, and the other thermister detected a difference. It really could be that easy.
