This error code is related to a overheat in the Fuser Unit.
Probably you have a faulty thermistor.
I advise you ito call a technician. But you can do this procedure to see if you can work while technician does not arrive.
Press yellow key.
Press 107 on the key pad.
Press red key at least 5 sec.
Press copy SP.
Exit all the way out and turn the machine OFF and ON.
I think did may help you.
See you!

Hi Anonymous,
This is a silly question.
Who, What, Why.... sometimes some customers want colour printer to only print in black and white because it's a cheaper click charge and colour is not always needed.

Error code C-2704 mean on C6500 Bizhub Pro

Abnormality in the black charging unit.
Possible causes:
Black charging unit
HV Unit
Print Control Board

My best guess is that you have a faulty charge unit. Try swapping the units around with another colour and see if the fault code shifts.

The printer in out of colour ink, and still wont print in black and white

Replace the colour ink. Some printers mix-in a bit of coloured ink, when printing "black", in order to prevent the colour-inks from drying-out.
