    Heat roller thermistor (accessed from the bottom of the fuser).

    Either it's faulty, out of position (make sure it's in contact with the roller) or it may just be clogged up with toner and need a clean.

    SP5810 to reset.

    Reset it using tech mode. Observe 1-106 temp settings while machine is warming up. Could need a heat lamp, thermistor or thermal fuse.

    Thanks much friends there was a toner buildup on the hot roller thermister. Cleaning it solved the problem.

    Ive had this problem in the past, changed thermistor and the lamp, it re-curred after speaking to Ricoh a fuser replacement is recommended.
