Hi there have you removed the fuser unit at all? if so remove it again and to the bottom left of where the fuser goes there is a black sensor make sure that is in position.

Reinstall the fuser and shut the covers. Failing this there is a push switch that is activated when the front door and left hand door is shut. Sometimes the screw holding the cover on comes loose and causes the door pin not to reach the switch. Tighten the screw it is located behind the front door in the top left hand corner.

If that does not work then the door switch will need replacing.

Thanks J

It says drum error but the cart and drum is replaced with new and still can't get past the drum error message.

Hi There!
What you can do to clear the Drum Error message is to clean the corona wire.
  • Open front cover of the machine and remove the drum & toner cartridge assembly.
  • Remove the toner from the drum and gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side put it on a piece of paper to avoid scattering the toner.
  • Theres a blue tab on the upper left side of the drum, slide it from left to right, right to left about 5-6 times don't forget to put the blue tab back to it's home position(where the arrow is).
  • Put the toner back into the drum make sure it will click into place.
  • Reinstall the drum and toner assembly back into the machine and close the front cover.
  • LCD should display the date & time.

If you continue to receive the message try resetting the drum counter by doing the following:
  • Open the front cover
  • Press the Options key on the control panel. The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
  • Press 1 to reset the drum count.
  • Close the front cover
Hope this helps!

Im looking for part# of a paper guide that also opens the drum unit shutter cover as you close the duplex unit on the left side of a xerox wc m123

This part you described is sold as part of the Left hand Upper Cover assembly wrinaldo_0.jpg

Also check the black plastic 054K24053 Left Hand Upper Chute assembly, that holds the transfer roller.wrinaldo.jpg

Just bought MX870 and put power on and it says "The feeder cover is ope Close cover and press ok." I closed every cover and pressed ok but still shows that error.

The two covers on top are just not aligned properly. Open both top covers (one opens to the right one to the left). Close the cover that opens toward the right 1st (you should hear it click into place) then close the second cover. Press "ok" should be good to go.

Printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty

That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
You can try this:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
Doesn't always work, but you can try.
Here are links, so you can see:

Hope that helps!
