Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Open Heat Error Cycle Power error on Samsung, Dell, and several re-tagged laser printers means that the fuser (heat) circuit is open.
faulty parts can be the Fuser Lamp, the Fuser High Voltage circuit board, or the Fuser thermistor.
All this parts are located in the area below the toner. Parts must be tested using a multimeter to find out what is faulty.
Unless you are a repairman, all you can do is unplug power cable for one hour, and allow the printer cooling down.
If the problem is still there when you plug back the printer, call the service number listed on the owners manual and arrange a repair.

I was gettng dirty copies and a Dell Rep suggested I needed to replace fuser. Ordered a new one, installed it with Dell's help and the "open heat error" started up. We then put the old fuser back in and the same problem continued...."open heat error". I'm wondering if something else may be in play...I've unplugged, replaced and started over but none of it helps. Perhaps there is something that needs to be reset, etc when installing this part. I did not have this error until I installed the new fuser.

Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the power-cable from the wall AC power outlet.
Wait a few seconds.
Reconnect the power-cable.

That is one "cycle" of the power.
