Re: HP Color Copier Error Code

Try turning off the device, and holding down the # and 6 keys simultaniously while turning the power back on. If that doesn't work reply back with the EXACT sequence of messages that display. I will continue to research the error code to provide a better solution.

SC 571 is a fusing error caused by not being seated properly or the oil sensor is coated with oil.

More than likely when the machine was move oil coated the senor in the fuser and it has to be taken apart to be cleaned.
