That is caused by either a dirty or defective fuser thermistor.
What you can try is this.
Press the yellow clear all button, then 107 then hold the red stop button until the machine switches to SP Mode. Then press the copy SP or system SP button. When that page changes, shut the machine off then back on. If the problem comes back you will have to remove the fuser and clean, or replace the thermistors that make contact with the hot roll. That is the black aluminium roll in the fuser unit.

My washer error message unit detect a problem


The most common solution for this message is to turn the machine OFF and then ON. If the error resets, you are done.

However, this message will sometimes cause the control to stop the machine from working. With this type of error, the control panel will need to be reset. The following steps will allow you to reset your control.

Solution:

  1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.


  2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.


  3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.

Error sc543 sp c320dn


SC542, SC543, SC544, SC546,
These codes are related to fuser temperature. Make sure that power source voltage are not low. check thermisters, fusing lamps etc. To reset this code press "All clear" yellow key, enter 107 and press the red key for some seconds. Sevice mode will be displayed, enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and select "1". Then hold down the Photo mode key and the # key at the same time for at least 3 seconds

SC546


SC541 - SC-555

These codes mean you are having a problem with your fusing unit. The section of your copy machine that has to heat up before you can make copies. It runs at a pretty high temp because it has to melt the toner and press it into the paper as the copy moves through the machine. Depending on the code, your machine is either taking too long to warm up or it is overheating.

The most common reason is a build up of hard crusty toner on the temperature sensors. This tricks the machine into not seeing your fuser warm up fast enough. Most of the time you can reset this and continue to use the machine but expect the code to come back down the road. You can also get codes if the room the copy machine is in is too cold when you start up the machine. Either a cold winter day or even a summer day in a room too cold from air conditioning.

Some machines require you to enter a service code to reset a fuser/fixing unit error. Some only require you to enter the service mode, then turn the machine off / on using the main power switch. The main power switch is the one you have to rock to the off and rock back on, not the little button you press for power to come on.
To enter the service mode press the following keys in order:
Clear modes
1
0
7
then press and hold the stop key
You will see the display screen change. At this point turn the machine off / on to reset the code.
If your machine does not have an LCD display screen you should have seen the copy quantity
display change to a flashing zero.

Some machines will need to add a step to the above instructions.
Once the LCD screen changes, select the "SP Mode" selection from the touch screen.
Enter 5810
This is the Service Program (SP) that resets Service Codes (SC-###)
You will either have to select 1 to accept or select the touch screen button to activate this SP.
After you do, turn the main power off / on to reset the code.

If you try this and the code still comes back on, you have an electrical or mechanical problem that you will need to call a service company to repair. The reason for making this code so hard to reset is a safety issue. If there is a short in your fuser unit it can cause your machine to over heat and possibly cause a fire. There are thermistors (temperature sensors) and thermostats (temperature fuses) that will keep your fuser from overheating. If either of these devices are worn out, you will not be able to reset the code and will need to have your fuser serviced.
