The error SC542 basically the machine is telling you that the fuser did not reach its target temperature in a specified amount of time. In normal circumstances this code will appear if the thermistor is not maintained or replace periodically or in abnormal circumstance the heat lamp blew. This is a Service Tech reset code.

    You can still have it fix from other printer service center that offer fix for this out of warranty printer. But if this is already a old unit better go get a new one.

Printer offline wont print cant get back online


Hello,



Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

For further precise instructions, please let me know the Operating Systems installed on the Computer.

Hope this helps..

Hp deskje d2360 printer showing offline error


Hi,

The solution for an offline error of a printer is to check the proper connection of the printer.

Two options exist to turn off the offline mode.

If you choose the first option to change the offline state of the printer,

then go to Control Panel and then 'Printer and Faxes' option on the Control Panel.

Double-click on the printer you want to change to online mode from the displayed window.

A pop-up window will open and you need to select 'Uncheck Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.

Error code sc542 on ricoh spc222sf?????????????????


Press the red CLEAR/STOP key till you hear the little beep. Press 1 0 7 Press the green COLOR START key. The display changes into MAINTENANCE MODE Use arrow keys to go to ENGINE MAINTENANCE and hit Ok Use the arrow keys and select FUSER SC RESET and hit Ok Hit OK again at the Execute prompt.
Once it is done executing the reset, power the unit off and on.
If the error comes back again, it is likely a real hardware problem and you may need to replace some components.

Transformer blew at our office yesterday, now calling for a service call, error code SC542???


sc542 is a fuser temperature error code, which could either be something simple (a bad sensor reading) or something serious (a blown thermostat). Either way you'll need to have your service technician come take a look at it and reset the code. (Unfortunately, turning the printer off and back on won't help.)

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
  • Use up and down arror to locate SP5
  • Press Enter
  • Use up and down arrow keys to select 810
  • Press Enter
  • Confirm the selection
  • Power off and on.
The error code is now cleared.

Hope this helps!
