Resetting a machine may cause damage on the costly internal parts inside. The cpu has an ability to detect error codes and what type of error it is on the machine but resetting it will only "FORGET" what has been currently detected but still the problem exists on the machine even it is successfully done. If you will continously use the machine that has been resetted, therefore a possible simple problem can cost serious damage. Just a reminder before resetting. Thanks for using Fixya.

Are you sure of the code? I don't have the exact manual for that, machine but the number seems strange. "5xx" errors are usually related to the fuser, so could be a bad lamp, thermistor, or fuse. see note to reset (if there is not a problem) as follows:
There are 2 levels of service call conditions.
Level Definition Reset Procedure
To prevent the machine from being
damaged, the SC can only be reset by a
service representative.
The copier cannot be operated at all.
Enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select “1”. Then hold down the Original
type key and the OK or ! key at the
same time (this does not require the
main switch to be turned off and on).

Start simple, clean the platen glass and **** glass with an alcohol wipe or a small amount of windex. If line still appears it could be the process or the fusing units. Hope this helps

First try entering into SP mode by pressing:
Clear button>1 0 7> and press and hold the Stop button for 3 secs. Then switch off and on the copier.
If SC 541 code is still there, check the following in the fuser unit:
  • Fusing thermistors defective or out of position
  • Thermostats open circuit
  • Power supply board defective
  • Loose connectors of Fuser unit.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

Ok! I found your model.
This code refers to a Main Motor Locked.
Almost certainly is an overload.
Try to change the Fotoconductor Unit.
There are been reported several problems with this machines. And the main reason is a defect in the Fotoconductor Unit.
If you still have a old one or eventually a new one try to change it and your problem is solved.
See you.
