Question about Fax Machines

4 Answers

How do I remove the fuser unit from the Xerox XD100 workcenter? I replaced the pinch roller in the fuser 6 months ago. It was very difficult but it worked. I'd like to know how to actually get the fuser out and dissassemble it to check the gears etc. I'm getting the loud noise but it still makes copies. It sounds like it is coming from the right front of the unit. I have wondered if it could be the gears in the drum unit. Thank you

Directly from the service manual.

The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. The
drum cartridge indicator on the machine diagram lights when the drum is
near the end of life. Approximately 1,000 more copies can be made, but
you should have a replacement cartridge in stock. When the J2 Status
Code is displayed, the machine will stop operating until the drum cartridge
is replaced.



Note: Ensure that the alternate paper tray
is lowered (XD104/105f/130df/155df only).
1. Press the release lever to open the side
cover (A).
2. Press the front cover release buttons to
open the front cover (B).
3. Press the green button (C) on the front
of the toner cartridge and pull out the
cartridge.
Note: The toner cartridge must be
removed before removing the drum
cartridge.
4. Pull out the drum cartridge.
Note: Help the environment by recycling
your used drum cartridge. Refer to the
recycling brochure packed with the drum
cartridge for details.
5. Remove the cover from the new drum
cartridge.
CAUTION: Do not touch the shiny surface
of the drum.
6. Slide the new drum cartridge in place,
making sure not to touch the surface of
the drum.
7. Reinstall the toner cartridge.
8. Close the front cover and the side
cover.

Hi!

for removing fuser unit you need to open the front cover of the unit, then using a philips screwdriver you can remove it

    To replace the gear you will need to remove a retainer clip and then unclip the fuser bulb to slide the gear into place.

    Rylee Smith Feb 17, 2009

    Remove the back cover also and then pull off the cover by removing the retainer clip and remove fuser bulb(heat lamp) by pulling on the end piece.



    Now you will be able to see the gears which can be removed by detaching the retainer ring from end of roller.



    Thanks

      Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least one hour for the fuser assembly and other internal components to cool.

    • 2
      Open the back cover of the printer. Squeeze the two tabs located in the upper left corner of the back cover, then pull the cover off the printer body.

    • 3
      Push the two green tabs on the duplexer unit and pull the unit out of the printer. If your printer is not equipped with a duplexer, skip this step.

      Remove the two screws on each end of the fuser. The screws are large enough to remove by hand. Grasp the orange tabs on the fuser and pull it straight out of the printer. Line up the new fuser and slide it into place on the track where you removed the old one.

    • 5
      Replace the screws on each end of the fuser. Turn the screws by hand until they are tight. Slide the duplexer unit back into place, pushing it into the slot until it locks in place.

I have an error code E001 on my canon copier what could be the problem


This error usually is due to fuser unit temp failure. check that there is no dirt under thermistors and that there is contact with fuser rollers. distortion of round fuser rollers can also cause the thermistors to temporary loose contact with rollers, causing falsely low temp readings sent to main-controller which in turn will give out a error. If you decide to strip and check fuser,it can be extremely difficult so take pictures of everything you do so as when it comes to assembly you wont get things wrong. check thermistors for damage, dirt or poor contact with fuser rollers. also check that the fixing bearings are not worn or damaged as this will cause rollers to move away from thermistors. Good luck.

Savin 3515 MF - when printing - Intermittently but often it prints where you can see shadow print from some other item that has printed before it. I keep going in and cleaning the roller (just wiping it...


There are only 2 possibilities with this problem. 1 is the PCU or Photoconductor Unit. I am guessing that this is what you had replaced 3 months ago? If so you may have to have the dealer replace it under warranty. The other possibility is the fuser unit and fuser rollers. I would not suspect these as much because if the fuser rollers get bad enough to start double imaging then they will usually do it every copy, not occaisionally.
The hardest part of your issue is in the fact that it is intermittently happening. If it were every copy/print then I would suggest shutting the machine off while in the middle of the copying process so you counld see if the double imaging was there before the page went thru the fuser. If it were then that would prove the PCU was at fault. Since this does not happen all the time, that troubleshooting technique is of little to no use.
When you say cleaning the roller are you taking about the drum? The Greenish/Blue colored "cylinder" that you see after opening the right side door? That cylinder or drum should always be clean as it is cleaned by the drum cleaning blade after each copy is produced. If you are having to clean it manually then I would suspect even more that the PCU is bad. If this is the case then I would really complain to the dealer that installed it. Also if you have the service order when it was replaced that should give you the page count when it was installed. Check that against the current count. The PCU is suppose to last at least 45,000 pages.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Xerox 5309 - ghost image on the second half of the print


Has to be a roller problem. First check that the drum is being cleaned properly by the drum blade, it is responsible for cleaning the leftover image of the copy/print before it ( when you remove or look at the drum you should not see an image or toner ,it should be clean , if not replace  drum and blade). Next check that the upper fuser roller is not damaged ( This is the rollers that heat up and fuse the image into the paper  ). If these check out it could be the erase array or laser unit ...Good Luck

Replace the fuser for my Xerox 555 WorkCenter Pro


Google a business called The Parts Drop and give Britt a call, He can give you a price and most likely send you the directions.
If he can't provide me an E-mail address and I can type out the directions on how to change it. It not hard. I suspect the cost in the $150-$200 range.

I have an old canon NP2120 Copier. I am getting an error code E000 when I turn it on. Is that something i can fix?


Are you mechanically inclined????
If yes the problem is most likely the fuser lamps are burned out.

This is to take out the fuser unit (the two heat rollers where the paper exits---------let machine cool first!!!!!!!!!!)
1-unplug machine
2-open left side door
3 open front door
4- remove the green knob on the left
5-remove the left side cover ( i beleive you need to take off the two screws on top that hold the glass also)
6-remove the back cover(it is hooked onto the side cover)
7-after removing the side cover look at the fuser left top corner unplug the connector- there should be one on the right also big black wires with a white connector remove the screws that hold the fuser in place
8- once the unit is out there is a lamp that runs the whole lenght of the roller that is the fuser lamp there are wires on each side, remove the lamp bracket holder and one wire, you should be able to tell if it is blown, it will be black and smoky looking not clear.

if you go through these steps you should take advantage and replace the thermistor, thermofuse, claws, and oil roller.
I use to love the 2120 they are one of the best machines Canon put out a true workhorse, do these things and don't worry about hte fuser for another 3-5 years .

When photocopying, a copy is made however the text also appears faintly in the background. (Model no: Xerox WorkCentre XD120F)


That would be either a bad heat roll or pressure roll.
In the area where the copy exits, the hot fuser area, eithet the heat roller, TOP roll or pressure roller, Bottom red roller are worn.
Easiest thing would be to replace the fuser.
