Hello,


The error code is related to the fuser area.

Likely to be a low fuser temp issue.


Need to verify good or bad heat lamps.

1) Check each lamp in fuser.

(lamp is good if you get continuity)
(lamp is bad if open)

2) Check the thermostat. (thermal control device)
(triggers if unit gets too hot)

3) Also check thermistor (monitors temp of fuser)
(2) total (middle and rear)

If heat lamp is good:

Your best bet is to change all three items. (Temp fix)

Fuser thermostat - thermal control device
Fuser thermistor (middle front) - thermal control device
Fuser thermistor (rear) - thermal control device

These items wear out. Change at the same time.

Fuser needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
(Check for wear and tear)


Inexpensive repair for the temp fix.

The whole Fuser cost can brake the bank.


I buy parts from precisionroller .com (you can preview the parts)

Why ricoh aficio mp 171 spf is showing servical sc 542?


because in some moment the fusing temperature was more high than the optimal. maybe it is just because of precaution issued the SC542. or maybe is problem . you need to reset the SC542 by entering the service mode. for this if you call service they will charge you big money. so if it is just issued just as precaution by doing the following procedure the machine will work fine again. but if the code do not clear do not repeat the procedure more than ones that you can make bigger damage that it has have before the code. so follow the next procedure: first enter service menu by pressing the following keys in order. press the yellow clear key the pres 107 and then press the red clear/stop key until on he screen write service menu or something other than the usual screen. after that appear. turn the machine of by the left side switch and wait 5 seconds, than turn it in again. if starts to work everything is okey . if the SC542 appear again do not repeat the procedure. call a serice techician

I have a ricoh aficio sp c420dn, when and turn on the screen showing error sc542


You may try first to reset the SC 542 before calling a technician!

That you can do by following method:

1.Turn the machine off and then after 5 second turn it on while pressing the “On Line” key and “Escape” key together until “SYSTEMver x.xx/1. Service” shows on the display.
2.Use the “Up/Down arrow” keys to scroll through the menu listing.
3. Press the (OK) key while
on the display writes " 2. Engine " .
4.go to "[5810 001] - Fusing SC Reset" by scrolling the “Up/Down arrow” keys and press the [OK] key (on the display should write execute or done) press [OK] again if is needed to press it.
5. After this turn off and than after 5 second turn it on the machine.
Please do not change nothing else in this menu only reset the fusing unit SC code, because if you change some other values and settings you might to regret that and pay high price for that.
So only reset the Fuser SC code SC542 by the upper mentioned method and do nothing else, if the SC code appear again then do not try this again because you might burn some parts.
If this do not help than call the technician.
Please answer do this is helpful for i to know do the problem was solved.

Ricoh Aficio MP 2510 SC 541, SC 542 Errors


To clear level A SC codes such as this SC541, you need to
Enter SP mode, and then turn the main power switch off and on, only.
Please check if the thermistors are the proper ones and are installed correctly in their position properly.
This is also useful for SC542.
Please check the thermostats and fusing lamps for open circuit.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

This is the code that appears on the screen, SC542-00


This is a fuser code indicating that printer didn't warm in the correct time and could be caused by defective sensors, heating lamp, or low voltage conditions.

Will require a technician to the printer's service mode to reset and/or replacement/cleaning of defective part

SC542 code appears on my Rex Rotary 2822, give solution please


This means the fuser has an error. You can not reset the code even if the fault has passed without entering the service mode. If you need a service manual for this let me know and I will send you a link.
