Question about HP LaserJet 8100n Printer
Yes, 50.1 refers to the fuser, and that is very easily replaceable. (no tools) However, in the 8100, you have a 75% chance that it is indeed the low volt power supply. The low volt power supply powers the fuser.
As a service approach, I always replace the fuser first because it is so easy to do and we always have them in stock.
If that does NOT clear the error, then we KNOW it is the low volt power supply. That is a very straightforward repair.

ERROR 50 - Service
A 50 service error can be either a temporary error or a permanent problem requiring service.
Temporary Error: Power off for 20 minutes to allow the capacitor on the DC controller to fully discharge. If you don't allow this capacitor to discharge, you will still get a Error 50 even if you have fixed the problem. This may clear the error - either temporarily or permanently. If it clears the error it was most likely caused by a low power problem i.e. low line voltage causing the power supply circuits to drop out of regulation. Low/unstable power (low line voltage, brownout condition). If it doesn't clear the error you may have one of the problems listed below
On the HP LaserJet 4L/4ML, errors are indicated by a series of indicator lights. This printer has four lights, Paper Jam, Paper Out, Data, and Online.
If all four lights are on, press and hold the blue panel button to display a secondary light pattern.
An error 50 is indicated by the ready and error lights with the blue panel button pressed.
Turn the printer off for 15 minutes to see if the error clears. If not, you will need to remove the fuser assembly to perform further checks. This requires removal of the cover, an unpleasant task, and measurement of the fuser terminals.
Note: THERE ARE FURTHER STEPS TO CHECK THE ISSUE, HOWEVER IT IS NOT RECOMMENED TO CHECK USING YOU ARE A USER, FURTHER STEPS NEED TO BE DONE ONLY IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AND INVOLVES MECHNICAL ISSUES OF PRINTER.
