Aficio color 6513 id sensor location, td sensor location

We are getting an sc385 error from our aficio color 6513 and from what i have discovered, the id sensor and the td sensor may need to be cleaned. where is the id sensor located? is the td sensor the one located in the centre of the toner revolver? if it is, i have cleaned it but there is no change. if this is not the td sensor, where do i find it? i have cleaned all visible connections.


any help greatly appreciated.

Re: aficio color 6513 id sensor location, td sensor...

Toner density sensor is located in the developer unit. either the sensor is not reading cause something is covering it or it has poped so it can not reference any longer.

This code relates to the ID sensor voltage check which didn't fall between the accepted levels (4V +/- 0.5V). Possible causes: defective sensor, dirty sensor, loose/disconected wire on the sensor, dirty drum.
If you need a manual with further details, it's available here. There's also some other helpful hints for this printer on that page.

How do i set aficio 1035 to factory default

SC352 Indicates ID Sensor/Pattern edge detect Error 3. If its a color machine, then it's a Magenta TD ensor failure.

Usually If you need to change the developer roller you should change the developer as well. Once that is done, then you go into service mode and calibrate the developer and initialize the TD sensor.

Did you change the developer?
