The problem is related to fusing temperature.

To resolve the problem, enter the SP mode : press the keys as per sequence given :

<clear modes(yellow)> <1> <0> <7>
keep STOP (red) key preseed for 3 seconds,
enter copy SP mode, Use OK or # keys.
press : 5 # 8 1 0 #
change the value from 0 to 1
turn the machine OFF and ON.

If the problem reoccurs, ckeck electrical connections in fuser.
check thermister, thermostat, fusing lamp etc. with the help of multimeter.
replace the defective parts in the fuser

Now when i put my photocopy machine on the SC542 code error appears So i need a solution for this problem


Hi rfofie,

There's no specific brand or model you have mentioned on the issue that you needed help. However, I can provide you the meaning of the error code that you are getting. The SC542 error code is a Fuser Temperature Error. That means that the fuser did not warm up fast enough. You will have to replace the fuser to get rid off the error.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Sc:542 error message on the screen


You need a firmware update…

SC542 SP1-103-2 Off + Temp has been newly added to prevent SC542 from occurring at machine power-on under low-temperature conditions.
Note: For this fix, it is necessary to use Controller firmware ver5.15.1 or newer.

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!

Re Samsung CLX-3160FN & Transfer Belt Error


Take out the Imaging unit ,transfer belt and fix it properly.
Also take care that you will keep the printer on even surface.

IF nothing is solving the problem then you need to replace the transfer belt as a final solution.

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
