SOURCE: How do I fix error

Error SC 542 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.

The magic keystrokes, clear the error code:

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

SOURCE: Ricoh Aficio 2238c: Fuser Oil Unit

you really can not refill the bottle but I would recommend two things. One find a fuser oil unit on ebay and order it quickly. Next hit the yellow clear modes button, then hit the numbers 1 0 7 , then hold the red clear stop button till the display panel changes. hit copy sp, select 7 data log. now use the page down arrows located in the middle of the disply till you see 7804 push it then go to #10 oil supply and hit execute. this will reset the oil counter and allow you to use the machine till you get the new unit.

Gestetner DSC332 SC393-02

Hello klwhite,
The answer to your question:
The error code means that there is a problem with the yellow dev unit. The manual says that "during warm up" the TD sensor saw .78 volts or less when it performed process control. We both know that this device may perform process control at times other than warm up. Sounds like the yellow dev unit is the problem as the sc393 means td sensor and the 02 means yellow developer unit. I truly hope I have helped you. Take care.........spinal......
