H4-01 Heat roller low temp is correct.

You machine has a fuser unit that it uses to bond the toner to the paper, it does this with  a heater lamp heating a set of rollers that the paper passes threw after it has printed.

Your machine monitors this unit to regelate its temp, your machine is sensing via a thermister and thermal fuse the temp of the fuser unit is not hot enough to enable use, this would mean the heater lamp is blown, thermister is faulty or thermal fuse blown 95% chance it's the lamp,

What one normally does is replace fuser assembly with new this is not a user thing it requires a tec, but if your into it, it is the hi voltage hot bit near paper exit.

I had the same error with an Oki C9600N. Called OKI, and was told one of two things has apparently gone bad: a DIMM (in slot 1) or the controller board. I removed the RAM, cleaned the contacts, blew out the slots (w/canned air), and reseated the RAM. Printer is back up and running. Hope this helps someone.
