Xerox 7700 won't go past warm up

I have a Xerox Phaser 7700 that has been working wonderfully for the past 5 years. Now, when it sits idle, it will not go past the "warming up" stage. I've tried hitting "OK," and the other obvious things (such as sending it a print job to awaken it), but it does not react unless I restart it. Then it works fine until it sits idle again—at which point it will not react without restarting.

Has anyone ever encountered this problem? Thanks

The fuser is a good place to start. If it is not hot you could try another fuser. You'll feel the heat well before you actually touch the fuser if it is working.
Do not swap fusers with another printer. These fusers have a life setting and when they are put into another printer it messes it up, leaving you with a fuser registering less than 10% life left.
An additional possibility is the the fuser may not be getting the power it needs. There are two boards that control power distribution if I remember correctly, T1 and T3, but I am not entirely sure which one handles power going to the fuser. In this case it would probably be best to get a repairman in. The 7700 is not particularly easy to work on, depending on the issue, but an experienced technician with a repair manual should be able to handle it easily.

If it will not go past warming up it is not warming up the fuser temp never gets to where it needs to for you to print That is why it doesn't come to a ready to print status.

Fan Failure Error 54


1 of 2 things.
You need to clean or replace the fan.
You have to remove the back, right side and top cover to access that fan.It is near the back just behind the fuser module.
It could also be the low voltage power supply fan. Most likely the fuser fan.
Once you remove the fan, there is a label on it, remove the label, There is a rubber plug behind the label, remove the plug and drip some lubricant into the fan. Reassembly and it should be ok.
I would recommend replacing the defective fan though.
Here is a very reliable part source.
https://www.partsdrop.com/store/

If you call ask for Britt and specify the model number and that you need a fuser fan and probably order a Power supply fan, Neither are very expensive.
Have both on hand to be 100 percent sure the problem is resolved, But its a 90 percent fuser fan failure code. It operated in a heated area and can dry out faster.

POSSIBILITIES

A Phaser 7700 Accumulator Belt was installed in a Phaser 7750. The Phaser 7700 Accumulator Belt does not have retractable 1st Bias Transfer Rollers; so these errors will be reported if one is installed in a Phaser 7750 printer. Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix. Remove the Phaser 7700 Accumulator Belt and install a Phaser 7750 Accumulator Belt. TRY FIRST (Solutions without parts):
1. Check that all shipping restraits have been removed.



TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS AND HINTS:
1. Test the 1st BTR motor in diagnostics to verify proper operation. 2. Test the 1st BTR sensor in diagnostics, then run the 1st BTR motor test and recheck the 1st BTR sensor. Sensor state should alternate between L and H. The sensor is part of the accumulator belt.

PARTS:Parts are listed in the order of highest probability for repair.
