    Here is a 880 Page manual for your product if it is 1022

    check the troubleshooting section very good instructions there.

    As the time here is 0:31 middle of the night. I will return in 8 hours.

    SC542: Fusing temperature warm-up error
    -Definition- [A]
    The fusing temperature does not reach the fusing standby temperature
    within 50 seconds after the main switch is turned on.
    - Possible causes -
    · Fusing thermistor defective or out of position
    · Fusing lamp open
    · Fusing thermofuse open
    · Power supply board defective
    · Poor connection of the fusing unit

  • Ekse Apr 21, 2008

    As the nature of the error is hardware, possible reasons include power supply defective, I would call in a tech to check this.

    A simple reset wouldnt fix the problem, you can try to power the unit off and on, also removeing the unit from the wall socket.

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.

Ricoh aficio 2232c sc542 error

SC542 means that the thermistor hasn't detected right temperature in given time.

Often you only have to reset service code.

Try this reset:
  • 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.
from here is another service procedure:
  • Press Mode(The Yellow Button)
  • Enter 107
  • Press STOP Button for 3 second (RED Button)
  • Copy Sp
  • 5810#
  • Execute
  • Power Off
  • Power On

Ricoh 3245c code is SC542

A SC542 error is a fuser problem. Did you have a power problem? You can try to reset it by turning the copier "ON" and once you have the code displayed on the screen.... Press the Yellow clear botton once - then the #'s 1 - 0 - 7, one at a time then press the Red Stop botton till the display changes..... Once, it changes turn the Main Power Off, not the one on the control pannel. Then turn it back "ON" and that should take care of it for you.... If it did not, you may have some more problems that can not be reset till they are repaired.. Good Luck
