Re: Fan constantly working

It is normal, it runs all the time. But normally the fan is so quiet, you do not notice it.
What you need to do is carefully remove the cover from over the fan. On that fan there is a gold or solver label, peel that off, and behind that label, there is a rubber cap over the fan bearing. Pop that cap out and lubricate the fan. It will then not be noticable, it runs in slow speed all the time like your power supply cooling fan on your computer, but you really shouldn't notice it. It's pretty common for that bearing to get a bit dry and make the fan operate noisily.
Make sure you replace the rubber cap over the bearing. And if you have any electrical tape, clean the excess oil off the cap and just put a small piece of tape over it so it does not vibrate off.
That will be your fix. Have done it a few times to that particular machine.

Re: Fan constantly working

This means that the device is overheating try puting it away from the wall or in a free air space so the unit will be able to cool itself properly good luck windman

Does the noise come from the right side? There is a cooling fan in that machine that makes a horrible noise.
It could also be a noise genereted from the board to the fax speaker,which could just be disconnected.
If it is on the right side let me know, I can tell you how to resolve that.

Is there a Mac workaround driver for the Xerox WorkCentre PE16


Recently I had to configure a 17" Aluminum PowerBook and a Xerox Workcentre PE 16. That multifunction laser monochrome printer is not supported by MacOS X, but I tried all the same.... and no glue for that, until I went on the Samsung webpage and noticed their SCX-4216F printer. This machine is the same as the PE 16.

So I downloaded the lastest drivers from Samsung's download centre (drivers for Tiger too), installed the drivers on the PowerBook (running 10.3.4), connected the printer and when I selected the printer ... tada! It automatically selected the Samsung driver, so I clicked on OK and started printing. Everything was OK!

But it doesn't end here: even the Lexmark X215 MPF has the same chassis as the Xerox and Samsung. Yet, on Lexmark's website there are no Mac OS X drivers, but Samsung's drivers work just the same. I hope this hint will help others...

The paper exit cooling fan is not working. Reboot machine, if the code comes back, you'll probably have to get the fan replaced. The fan is one of the two located over the right side door.

HP color laser 4600dn FAN noise


Yes this is normal. Everytime someone prints, the printer exits power saving mode and the fan will stay on. If you leave it on and don't print to it overnight, the fan would shut off in the mornig. But you probably turn the printer off everynight and are printing all day, so you don't really have to expectthe fan to power down unless its not being used for an long period of time idleing.

Xerox workcentre pe16


Remove the back cover. And looking from the back, remove the right side cover. There is a white ribbon cable and one connector with mostly red wires, remove and reseat those. Return power to the machine and see if it comes on.
If not, then remove the right side cover, the 2 screws that fasten the scanner to the frame, remove the scanner and then the controle consol, ( display.) then unplug all the connectors on the display and reconnect them.
It the display still does not work after reseating all the connectors, the display itself is defective.

Inner fan


inner fan is working all the time in order to cool off the electronic units, but you may wanna try checking for overheating. this can resault of: - air hole too close to the wall, or jammed by something. - working enviroment is too hot. room temperature and so. - dust and dirt accumulated on the fan, or heatsinc. you can clean it with a vacum cleaner or compressed air.
