SC542 is a heating roller warm up error. Most likely the fuser lamp has failed - a faulty sensor or board is also possible but not very likely. You'll need a new fuser, I suspect.

Thats a fuser error. Thermistors needs to be replaced. Alternatively you can try clearing the code in sp mode push yellow button 107 and hold red button. Select 1 and the 5 (mode) then clear scs.

Enter service mode (hold down up/down for 5 seconds then hit #) service mode 5-810 to reset (fuser problem)

SC389 is a development gamma error in the magenta. There can be several causes for this error - a toner supply problem, incorrect toner used, a laser exposure problem etc. This is not likely to be an easy problem to fix unless you are experienced in such matters, so you may need to look for someone who can help out.

In user tools there is a maintance button press and then try color reg adjustment. If it doesn't sink color back in alignment it will say fail will need to call a tech . Could be anything from transfer unit bar that is shiny usually toward exit side cake with toner to laser failure

To reset fuser SC codes you need to enter Service Programme Mode and reset SP5-810 to 1, then turn the main switch off and on again. If you need help on entering SP mode etc. then take a look here.

You can reset the fuser using the Service Programme Mode - easier than messing with springs! You can find all the details here.

It is possible that the card thickness is to big for the printer to "pull" the card in. try using a thiner card, giving a small **** of the card to assist the printer while "pulling" the card, or try cleaning the small wheel it has in the paper drawer for pulling paper with amonia.

This code relates to the ID sensor voltage check which didn't fall between the accepted levels (4V +/- 0.5V). Possible causes: defective sensor, dirty sensor, loose/disconected wire on the sensor, dirty drum.
If you need a manual with further details, it's available here. There's also some other helpful hints for this printer on that page.

Hi. The SC220 issue is a known one on the 3800c. It's a firmware related problem, and the code, which points to the synchronizing detector boards, is erroneous. You can read more about it, and possible ways to avoid it here.
Updating the firmware to get rid of this problem is not an easy job.
