SC542 is a Fuser error code. It's a "fusing temperature warm-up error", basically meaning that the hot roller in the fuser did not reach the proper operating temperature within an allotted time period.

In order to clear this error, you would need to go into the service mode of the copier, then into the "System SP" section, and then power down the machine using the ORANGE ROCKER SWITCH located under the clear cover in the upper left corner of the FRONT DOOR..

Most likely it is time to have the machine serviced. Generally this happens when the hot roller has become worn, causing melted toner to stick to the roller and/or thermistors (temp sensors) that touch the roller surface. The hot roller, and other main components in the fuser, have a rated service life of 300K copies/prints.

One other possibility is that the paper you are using is too dusty. These machines have had issues with buildup on the sensors that is caused by a mixture of the paper dust and the silicone lubricant that is applied to the roller via the cleaning web. There has been a few service bulletins with regard to the build-up problem. There have been a number of part changes and setting adjustments to help combat this.

Transformer blew at our office yesterday, now calling for a service call, error code SC542???


sc542 is a fuser temperature error code, which could either be something simple (a bad sensor reading) or something serious (a blown thermostat). Either way you'll need to have your service technician come take a look at it and reset the code. (Unfortunately, turning the printer off and back on won't help.)

Error sc 547


Found this from:

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!
