I have a Konica Minolta C650 Bizhub. It required me to replace the fusing unit. I did. However, the machine does not recognize the new fuser. It still gives the "replace fusing unit soon"...

There is a fuse in a new fuser unit that resets the internal electronic counter. There is no other way to reset the counter. You either need to return the fuser unit to where you got it and request another one or have someone replace the fuse that is inside the new fuser unit you bought. My suspicion is that the unit either is NOT new and maybe someone scammed you or that the unit is a rebuilt unit that someone forgot to replace the fuse in. I stock the fuses so they are readily available from numerous sources. I can provide you with those if needed. Basically you remove the fuser and then remove a cover that is around the large connector on the fuser. Then hidden inside the wiring bundle you look for a plastic zip tie that is holding the fuse. The fuse is encased in a section of clear shrink tubing. You must cut this fuse out and replace with a new one.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a C6500 Bizhub pro, but, recently displays an C3102 error. I need to print an urgent job and y can't! Please helpme!

The fuser exit rollers are the light grey painted rollers on the exit of the fuser itself. There is a slider mechanism that when slid forward or towards the rear, will adjust the pinch of the roller. Primarily it is there to deal with what is called a waxing effect where the rollers physically leave an impression in the soft toner on thick stocks. Reducing the pinch for thick stock reduces this. However, when doing thin stock, especially letter size paper, jamming can occur if the pinch is not engaged since there is no physical contact to drive the paper to the next conveyance rollers when doing duplex or face down printing.

The slider can be found on the left side door of the fusing unit itself, near the front. Normal operation is in the middle.

Replacing the CDB is just one of many troubleshooting steps, it is not the end all to this.

The 3102 code you encountered has nothing to do with temperature and humidity. It is a code related to the failure of the fuser conveyance. Gamma correction is also unrelated because gamma correction is image related, not conveyance related.

I highly suspect that you are encountering this code because of some kind of failure related to the fusing unit itself, again related to the movement of the fuser, which usually is in motion during many test modes of the main body components. Check all the connectors to ensure they are seated properly. The previous document relates to what to check and replace related specifically to fuser pressure roller.

We do not leave fusers at the customers either. We have spares at the shop that we rebuild during slow periods. This is simply our own initiative, not the norm, and is also a part of our troubleshooting regarding fusing unit related errors that are not so is part of the elimination process, as some fuser related codes can be caused in other areas, such as the CDB, a bad conveyance clutch or motor or simply timing adjustments that are out of the normal range.

1.One of the gears in the fusing unit gearboxfails. The shaft for fusing unit gear/H has been changed so that it is now supported at both ends instead of just
one end. The gear is now made of a stronger material.
The new design has been incorporated into all bizhub PRO C6500 machines beginning with s/n A03U0000787. A replacement gearbox is available for
machines with lower serial numbers. For the machines with serial numbers between A03U010000788 and A03U010001446 the fuser gearbox is already
updated and only fusing gear /H (p/n A03U808811) needs to be replaced.

must be installed. Adobe Reader® can be downloaded for free from the Adobe® web site at: Adobe - Adobe Reader download - All versions .
2. The machine cannot determine the separation cam home position.
Check the following items PS16 (p/n 08AA 8551 2) and Release Actuator flag (p/n A03U 7244 00). Make sure when the fuser jam release green knob is
turned counterclockwise, the Release Actuator flag (p/n A03U 7244 00) blocks and unblocks PS16/PS17. Check to see if the sensor is disconnected. If
turning the Fuser Jam removal Knob does not change the position of the Release Actuator flag, then check the drive gears associated withM30 (p/n 27LA
8003 0) for broken or stripped drive gears andreplace them if damaged.
3. A one-way gear (p/n A03U 8093 00) is slipping in the fixing drive assembly.
Replace the (3) fixing drive gears with the modifiedFixing Drive Gear/M 22T (p/n A03U 8093 11) andthe fixing drive shaft/A (p/n A03U725800).

this is a problem that HP refuses to acknowledges. Its caused by the gear that meshes with the main fuser wanders to the right as the printer prints. we are checking into a fix for this, since we are getting no cooperation for the manufacturer, Canon or HP. Canon makes the print engine

Canon IR5000 not running 20 lb. will run 60lb. and cover. 20 gets stuck in middle

If it's getting stuck in the Middle , I am assuming it's getting stuck right a the fusing section, Ok if it is running 60 lbs of paper greatly but, jams in the Middle , this tells me your fuser needs to be adjusted, This is something you don't want to do if your NOT a Service Technician most likely if your fuser was adjusted for 60lb paper the temperture was also adjusted so the paper won't be too too hot, I am certain your fusing unit will need to be adjusted or the Upper fuser/Lower Fusers are worn. Yea, you'll have to call a indiepent or an authorized dealer for this, unless you know how to rebuild the fuser yourself- be careful- this is exteremely hot unit.

Lexmark C720 grinding noise & fuser damage

From the site of your Picture, you need a new fuser unit.
The coasting is peeling off... that is not good. And I will bet you get allot of paper jams.

To replace the fusing unit is not hard to do. For the most part taking the covers off the machine and getting them back on is the hard part... Let the fuser unit cool down before you touch it..

Just remember to unplug the machine, Electronic Static Discharge is not good for the Boards in it, touch the metal chassis before you touch the boards if you don’t have a wrist strap) get your self a table and some room to work and take your time.

Take the toner cartridges out
I would do a maintenance kit while I had it apart. (rollers, transfer rollers etc)
Vacuum it out; clean it while you have it open.
(Warning toner and developer is very fine, you might need a vacuum with a micro filter on it, other wise it might go every where)

The service Manual has details on how to do all this. If you follow that you should be ok.
You could try to get all the parts to Fix the fuser unit, but it is easier and faster, cheaper to replace the whole thing. Some places offer a core exchange.

If you need any assistance let me know...

This is from Lexmark,6970,204816596_846034106_306769501_en,00.html?tabId=1

These are various other places that offer parts and supplies.

H5-01 indicates tha the paper sensor is defective in the fusing unit. The only way you can try to reset that one is buy turning the power off, wait 30 seconds and turn the power back on.

If the error code returns the fusing unit will have to be fixed to take care of the paper sensor.

Gear making a grinding noise

Not too good news I'm afraid. It sound like the fuser gear has failed. Generally the fuser unit (hot section or hot rollers in the back) need to be replaced. Usually when the gear has worn or failed the fuser rollers are also worn and need to be replaced. The gear can be replaced seperately but is a very risky operation and usually results in parts in the fuser unit falling appart due to age and wear, so it is best done as a unit. If possible do not run the machine as it can cause damage to gears around the fuser unit. The best option is to find out how much a fuser unit and labour to fit would be at your local service centre.

Gear that drives the fuser unit

Yes one can replace it but it aint no easy job, entire frame needs to come apart, I always change the whole L frame, but gear is available, set aside half a day, take pics or purchase the service manual, it still takes me 40 mins to change a frame on one of these, and you will need to go that far then some to get to just the gear in frame..

Not such a easy job, you have been warned from one who knows OK

Good luck
