Ah, the joys of keeping old laser printers working.

Error 51 rings a bell for me - that\'s a beam detect error. Could be a faulty board or more likely given the unit\'s age the optics are dirty. You might want to try Google for a maintenance manual \'cause from here on we\'re working on my memory.

The laser scanner is under the top panel secured with screws at the front and clips at the back (the clips are a bugger be careful not to break them). Clean the optics with a lint-free cotton bud and isopropil alcohol if you have it.You may need to remove the laser assembly to do this - I can\'t remember if you can do it in place.

If that doesn\'t bring it back then its a board fault and unless you have a donor printer to scavenge parts from, I\'d say its beyond repair.

I'm getting an error code Illegal attribute value on my hp 4050 printer


Nothing to worry about. It just means that you have printed a page or pages that all the trays do not have the correct paper size. Say your trays all have A4 papers and you printed a PDF document (US letter size) downloaded from America. Printer prints the page, then print another page with your error message just to tell you your pages do not match the papers. This is HP PCL6 code. A Postscript printer driver will just refuse to print if page size mismatches and keep the user wondering why.

To avoid the message, just make sure that your documents have the same page settings as papers in your printer trays.

Top light blinking means: door open, media out, no print

cartridge, or media jam This printer is in an error state that
requires operator intervention. Check the following:

- The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer. See Changing the print cartridge on page 51 for instructions.
- There is no media jam. See Clearing jams on page 68 for instructions.

Here is the manual.

What is "unable to print 51"


Error code 51 means that there is due to wate ink pads which are full. You'll need to clean these pads to remove the error message. Also check for any small bits of paper stuck under the printhead (check under the carriage). Try removing the cartridges and check for any bits of paper. Before doing any of the above said things please turn off the printer and unplug it from power source.

If this doesn't work then its an issue with the purge unit. The purge unit is responsible for carriage movement on the chrome bar.

Please tell me if you need further assistance,

I have error code 51 and 21 on the printer. I


21 is "Page too complex"
51 is "Beam detect error" or "laser error"

My question to you is, does this only happen when you are printing a page that is very graphics intensive, or does it happen with simple jobs too? It could be that you just don't have enough memory in the printer to handle some of these pages. Then again, you may have to replace the laser scanner. I advise you to call a tech out to take a look at it rather than trying to fix this on your own.

If it isn't happening too often I'd probably just **** it up and live with it if it were me. If it is getting in the way of business though you really ought to call a tech. A lot of times these things can be fixed for a lot less $ than you'd think.

Lexmark C772n - 127.07 Service fuser error


I searched the Technical Manual and there is no explanation of the code. The user manual simply says there is a printer failure. They ask that you turn the printer off, wait 10 secs and then restart. Then call 1-800-LEXMARK and they will tell you about the code.

Given that your printer is saying Service Fuser, it is highly likely the fuser is ready for replacement. The fuser is the component that heats to high temperature to fuse the toner to the paper and complete the print cycle.

Error code


and even if you did get rid of error 51 that you have created, you will find that you still cant print in black, original problem is the print head is stuffed probally from dodgy non gen ink running threw it and the fix is to replace head. I don't know who is telling all you brother mfc owners to clean your print head but your paddling up the wrong creek, these heads are electronic deivices that dont take kindly to cleaning, they are not the same as other brands.
