Error message "Refer to Printer Documentation 0-61011bed

My experience is that you need to leave the unit disconnected from the mains completely for longer than the other solutions suggest. Leave it overnight, disconnected from its power supply and with the power supply disconnected from the mains. This has worked for me twice. The first time I thought I had fixed it with something else. That did not work the second time and I realised it was something else I had done - leave it disconnected overnight (about to throw it away) before giving it one last try. I suspect that something needs to thoroughly discharge. Anyway, it is a simple solution to try. Best of luck! :-)

Have f11 fault tried to reset and machine starts up, turns a few times, then gives a strange noise then f11 appears and pump starts draining, had f11 few years back and was fuse but remember at this time...

sounds like you've either got a stiff motor or gunk in the drum making it difficult for the motor to turn. When the fuse blows the drum won't turn at all but as yours is trying to turn then throwing the fault up it sounds like something is causing too much resistance

Last night I installed a new XEROX maintenance kit in my Phaser 8500(NOT "DN") and I had a problem I've never had in 3 or 4 years I"ve owned this printer. It was kind of hard to pull the old one out, and...


Standing at your description, you have installed the new kit in the proper way. Unless you broke some plastic part (you would have realized), it is rather unlikely that there is damage inside the printer.

If you find toner pebbles inside the printer , then the printer must be cleaned internally. That is probably causing all the troubles.

Residual toner can cause more faults, some of them (eg. drum thermistor) can only be fixed by a technician.

Here broad lines on how to clean a laser internally. Instructions are for a B&W, but steps are more or less same on a color printer.

HP 2510 printer in "wait" mode indefinitely

It sounds to me like the printer needs repaired/replaced as the gears which drive the printer cartridges' belt are no longer aligning correctly. At today's prices, I strongly suggest just replacing the printer as you can get a new one pretty cheap now. Good luck!

Lexmark 2500-Constantly runs out of ink whether I

I take it that the ink is not leaking out and running all over the place?
A cartridge should print maybe 500 or more pages (I can't recall just when I looked this up, but the number popped into my head). Sounds like you are getting less than that.

If it's not leaking, then the ink shouldn't run out if you are not using the printer.

The only thing I can tell you is that you have a bad printer. In my opinion, Lexmark consumer products are not very good--but that is only my opinion (and the opinion of many of my associates).

Sorry I can't give you really good news.

'communication error' and won't turn off

From my experience, FW and Epson printers don't always work well together.

Switch it to USB then delete and re-add the printer in the PRINTER SETUP UTILITY, and you should be okay
