Re: fuser malfuncion

Try this:   "turn off the power ,turn on the power holding the button, wait, then when the "drum" light is burning wait a sec then press the button again.  The printer will "dump" whats in its tiny 0.5mb memory and start a self diagnosis and will begin to print the results of the test."

My Brother HL-2140 Went out in a storm. All three lights just keep blinking no matter what I do. Held down on the blue light button a number of time, restarted computer, turned off printer, reloaded ink...

You can find the usre's manual here:
1) If the LARGE BLUE BUTTON is blinking:
Data remaining in memory
There is remaining print data in the printer memory. If the Ready LED is blinking for
a long time and nothing has printed, press the Go button to print the remaining data
in the memory.
2) If the TONER LED is blinking:
Toner low
Indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge and have
it ready for when Toner life end is indicated.
The Toner LED will turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds.
3) If the DRUM LED is blinking:
Drum life end soon
The drum unit is near the end of its life. We recommend that you get a new drum unit
to replace the current one. See Replacing the drum unit on page 69.
The Drum LED will turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds.
4) If the RED ERROR LED is blinking:
Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Fuser cover is open
Close the fuser cover located behind the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 85. If the printer
does not start printing, press the Go button.
Memory full
The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
Print overrun
A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.

Oki C3200 message on screen says '171 Fatal

Yes it can be saved, it is indicating the fuser thermister is open or below temperature. Try opening the printer and restarting it. If that does not fix it you may have to replace the thermister or the fuser

Konica minolta EP2010 error code c05

I have a Konica Minolta CSPRO EP1054 (in the Middle East)

I accidentally plugged the EP1054 copier into a 110V outlet instead of the 220V. Immediately the malfunction code (error code) of "C05" appeared along with the "Call Tec Rep" indicator light (wrench).

I followed the instructions posted by "Soul Visitor" ... i.e., I found the "Trouble Reset Switch" (not shown in the user manual) by opening the upper back panel and pressing the small black button in the lower right hand corner of the middle circuit board (green).

It worked perfectly!7df26b9.tif

Canon Error Eoo7

This error code indicates to the copier that the upper fixing film on the fuser assy is not rotating. Paper wrapped around the fixing film or the film itself is damaged may cause this. Unless you are very mechanically inclined , it will take the removal of the fixing assy and possibly the replacing of the fixing film assy. A tech would need to be called in to correct the problem. The fixing film is a replaceable item. Good luck.
