Re: Error - E401

E401 on a 6545 is the RDF (reversing doc feeder) pick up motor or pick up sensor problem. Does the rdf attempt to pick up the original or do you get the error as soon as you press start? Are you aware of how to remove all the rdf covers? The pick up motor has a timing wheel & sensor that need to be periodically cleaned.

Heater temperature error (abnormal drop; low-temperature detection)

The main thermistor reading is lower than 140°C when paper is moved.
Main cause:
The fixing film unit is faulty (i.e., the main thermistor (TH1) has poor contact
or has an open circuit; or, the fixing heater is faulty). The main power
supply PCB is faulty. The DC controller PCB is faulty.
To clear the error, execute the following in service mode:
1. State
Turn on the power switch, and clear E002/E003. Thereafter, turn off and
then on the power switch. Does the fixing heater operate?
NO: See "The fixing heater fails to operate."
2. Wiring
Is the wiring from the DC controller PCB to the fixing film unit normal?
NO: Correct the wiring.
3. Fixing film unit, DC controller PCB
Try replacing the fixing film unit. Is the problem corrected?
YES: End.
NO: Replace the DC controller PCB.
