Question about Dell 5100cn Laser Printer
99% of the time the error is the fuser. Either it is damaged, or just not locked in place, and with power off, reseating it will fix the error. Since you just replaced the fuser, I guess the question is did you do it because it was also giving this error, or because it reached EOL ( end of life ).
If it was for EOL message, I would try reinstalling it. If the "reseat fuser" error goes away, but comes back with the new fuser again, then the new fuser you purchased is defective and should be returned or exchanged.
See the information below to correctly troubleshoot your issue.
The following steps are the troubleshooting steps that should be followed for error code 010 397.
First, the definition of the failure is <IOT Fuser Failure>, and means a Fuser Error is detected.
1) With power off, reseat the fuser by physically removing it from the printer, then reinstalling it and locking it in place. Turn the power back on. ( if the error is still present, proceed to step 2 ).
2) If reseating the fuser did not resolve the problem, Replace the fuser with a known good fuser.
( if problem is not resolved, proceed to step 3)
3) Replace the LVPS ( low voltage power supply ). ( if problem not resolved, proceed to step 4 ).
4) Replace the PWBA MCU ( printed wiring board assembly - machine control unit ).
END of troubleshooting.........
In most cases, the fuser itself is the problem. If you tried to reseat or replace the fuser while power was still on, the LVPS could have been damaged just as if there were an electrical storm.
Hopefully this helped.
