    Ricoh Aficio SP C232DN error: SC542

    Hello. I am currently trying to clear an sc542 code from a ricoh c232 that had recently been through a varity of brown-outs/building power failures. I have the pcl6 driver, som installed, and have the printer installed via tcp/ip. The som connectes to the printer, reads toner levels, displays the current error code. However, when I try to move to user tools the Printer Configuration is greyed out and unselectable. My understanding of this printer is that this is the way/area to handle this process. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas why this is occurring. Thanks

    As ss12 said, SC542 is a fuser related error code, this will need to be reset.

    Probable causes are:

    Defective thermistor
    Incorrect power supply input at the main power socket
    Defective fusing lamp

    Corrective actions :
    1. Check the voltage of the wall outlet.
    2. Replace the fusing unit
    3. Replace the fusing lamp.

    Resetting the code:

    Execute "Fuser SC Reset" with SOM (printer models) or "Engine Maintenance Menu" (MF model) to recover the machine after completing the recovery procedure. Otherwise, the machine continues to issue this SC code and cannot be operated.

    Install Smart organising monitor and configure for your device.

    From the User Tools tab select 'Printer Configuration'.
    Input the acccess code and select 'OK'.
    Choose the 'SP mode 2' tab from the Printer Configuration window.
    Select 'Fuser SC Reset'.

    If this fine POS is the box I think it is, It's not a Ricoh made box. Fusers are a common failure and best advice is to sell them a real machine. If your on a service with supplies contract your probably upside down anyway.
