Main motor can turn that is why getting code. can be from photo conductor, to fuser or gear broke in back of copier. Will need tech for this one.

Main motor/ transport motor lock/ fusting motor error.
The only thing you can do is check for any obstructions in the machine.
That needs to be looked at by a service because the problem could be a motor, a pcb, or a power supply.
It can be a lot of troubleshooting to do.

Laser diode beam not positioned correctly. Turn the machine off and back on and see if it goes away. You can run sp 2109-3 or 2109-4 in the service mode to adjust the beam in service mode by pressing on the yellow button. pressing the 107 keys and holding down on the clear button.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, you probably need a laser which we have one for sale here.

The problem (s) could be; defective main motor, image transfer belt out of position, belt mark blurred or absent.
A ITB belt inspection and/ or repair would be a job for tech.
Or you could just order a new PCU which would fix the problem.

To clear level A SC codes such as this SC541, you need to
Enter SP mode, and then turn the main power switch off and on, only.
Please check if the thermistors are the proper ones and are installed correctly in their position properly.
This is also useful for SC542.
Please check the thermostats and fusing lamps for open circuit.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
