Problem 122.03 error; 122 error; Fuser error Solution What the error means
The 122.03 Error indicates that the printer's fuser unit is heating up either too quickly or too slowly.
What to do
This error normally requires a service call. However, certain rare occurrences, such as a a power fluctuation or a stray static discharge in the vicinity of the printer, can cause a false 122.03 error message to appear. In these cases, the error is only temporary and can be easily resolved without service. Follow the steps in the table to test this.

If possible, connect the printer's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can generate false error messages.
Did the error message return?

Yes: Continue to Contacting Lexmark below.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly.

109.08 Service printhead error

The black laser (printhead) might be faulty. Try powering off the printer and then remove the power from the wall outlet, leave the printer without power for around 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, plug the printer and power it on. If the issue persists, please the Lexmark Technical Support hotline for laser printers. You might need to replace the printhead or the controller board of your printer.

Fuser error on lexmark c543, what is it and how do I fix it? Thanks

Fuser error indicates that the printer/MFP has detected a problem with the fuser unit.However, certain rare occurrences, such as a power fluctuation or a static discharge in the vicinity of the printer/MFP, can cause a false error messages to appear.
1) Make sure printer is plugged to wall
2) make sure printer has been in turned on in ambient temperature for 30 min. 3)Power off the printer/MFP, wait 30 seconds, and then power it on again. Did the error message return? 4)If possible, connect the printer/MFP's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector, extension cord or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), can generate false error messages. Verify also if the printer works on a 110 or 220 volts source. Make sure that the power outlet matches its working voltage rating.
If you still get the error message, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support.

The printer just finished printing 7 pages and it clicked and the showed 122.05 Service fuser error.

Service Fuser Error appears when the fuser does not warm to the required temperature. For this error on this Lexmark model, the manual states you should power off the printer and power it back on, and if it is not plugged into a wall power point, change it to a power point mounted directly on the wall. Personally, I never got a Lexmark printer to work doing this, but this is in the manual. If this won't help, and the printer is under warranty, you should log it in with the servicing company.
If the printer is out of warranty, your next option is to change the fuser which costs around $300 for a new one, so I think you would be better off getting a new printer unless you find a second hand fuser on Ebay. They usually send for under $100.

I have installed printer Lexmark C543, it will not show in the printers and says it is not connected

Make sure the network cable is plugged in securely to the printer as well as to your network switch or router. "Not connected" indicates a problem with the cable itself or the port its connected to, not necessarily anything wrong with your printer.

If it is a new printer call Lexmark, because this is a problem with the magenta printhead. To solve it you need to have some expertise on this printer.

If the product is correct as listed...C543DN Laser does not use ink. It uses toner in a closed cartridge. You will need to purchase a new cartridge.
