Turn the main power switch off
then on before entering SP mode.
Reset the SC (set SP5-810 to 1),
then turn the main switch off then
on again.

DSC224 printer displays low on fuser oil

There is a sensor that need to be cleaned if the code will not clear. I believe there is a black float that is part of the fuser bottle. If you swing out the oil bottle and look where the float would be... There is a sensor, clean the sensor and make sure it is plugged in correctly... Good Luck

I have a problem with my copier i cant make a copier first it indicate that no oil i went and buy the oil but still so please help me. my number SC570

See? Ya need to listen to the baby. It told you it was low for days. Ok, I have to assume you have filled the oil bottle.But now the copier can't know that. We need to reset the error code.You will need to go into the SERVICE MODE in order to do this. In order to go into sevice mode you must press a few buttons. Locate the yellow CLEAR button located above the 9 key pad. Now locate the red STOP button at the bottom. Ok, press the Clear button for a moment and then press the numbers 1-0-7, then press the STOP button. So....CLEAR(release) 1(release) 0 (release) 7(release) then press and hold the RED STOP button for 5 seconds. The screen will change indicating you are in service mode. On the menu you will see tabs. Select COPIER. Now you will see a new screen that will have several tabs across the top.SP DIRECT should already be highlighted, if not touch it and highlite it. Now, use the keypad and press "5810" and then press the # sign. When you press the # sign the display should ask you if you want to EXECUTE. Press EXECUTE. Now unplug the copier. Wait a second or two and plug it back in. This should do it.Glad to help and please let fixya know I helped you. SPINAL

Reset admin password for web-interface

If you're 'ok' with resetting all the network info such as Ip address, Etc - not to mention the scanner locations, fax speed dials etc. then you can email me. I will give you the instructions to reset "NCS" which will set all network settings to default, but I haven't got the time to walk you through all of the reconfiguration settings - - you're on your own there.

I don't post service mode adjusmtents here

Sc 570 error code

SC 570 means Fusing oil end.
You have insufficient oil in the oil tank situated at the rear of the machine, please fill up with correct oil.
Afterwards please enter SP mode 5-810 and set to 1, then switch off and on the machine.
If you have sufficient oil in the tank and sc570 re-occurs, you have a defective oil pipe, oil pump or oil end sensor.
