Fatal error code 173:
This error indicates that the Image Drum Up/Down Process is not working properly. The errors are as follows:
140 - Yellow Drum Up/Down error
141 - Magenta Drum Up/Down error
142 - Cyan Drum Up/Down error
1. Reseat the Image Drums. Ensure they are in seating properly into the drum carriage.
2. Reseat the Toner Cartridges. Ensure they are seating properly into the Image Drums.
3. Reseat the Contact Sensor Spring assembly and inspect it for damage or mis-alignment. If the springs appear bent or dis-lodged reseat them.
This is a fatal error with the scanner. It is most likely to be a power supply or positioning error with the scanner not having returned to the home position or the positining sensor. You will need a service engineer call to rectify this.
This can be caused by the transfer belt damage or the contact group damage. 141 is an error of Magenta ID up/down. Possible reason though - check the place next to the belt at the right hand side near the Magenta drum location. You'll see the terminals sitting in the housing with the spring. If the housing is fell off or the spring is missing - that can cause this error. Otherways you'll need to replace the transfer belt.
Magenta toner sensor error. Reseat drum unit. check toner cart. Take out the key that prevents you from putting drums in wrong slot and swap the whole drum and toner assy with another color, if it follows the magenta unit then that is the problem somehow.
I have the Oki 5650 which had been great for about 18 months. Then found that the C cartridge was showing error as 'not installed'. After much fiddling about with it and checking on the internet I can now rectify this by either pushing down on the top of the printer while it boots up, or removing the small chip on the left top of the toner (make sure you have 'earthed' yourself to prevent any static damaging the chip when you handle it!) and taping securly onto the top of the cartridge above the chips proper slot. This now has been working OK for 6 months. Strange how this only affects the C cartridge (which has also been replaced and had the same problem). I suspect that the printers RFID chip reader for the C cartridge is having problems reading the chip and moving the chip closer to the reader by either taping to the cartridge top of puching on the top cover while printer boots up resolves the problem (for now anyway!) This can also trigger the 'service call 231 fatal error 03' message which also disappears if you follow the above procedure.
Hope this helps you.
That is a fuser erron code. Abnormal temperature. You will need to replace the fuser. Sometimes I have sen a buildup of toner on the thermistor. If you can get to it. You can try to clean the toner off. Be careful. Very hot.
