    Hi again just had cust with same issue, if you look at side of toner unit(handle side) there is a little rectangle window that goes empty or black when toner is out, it is silver when has toner, this lines up with a sensor that looks at window, clean this area and ensure window is silver.

Printer not printing


Hi,


When this error appears in your printer check if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel is with the cartridge. To fix this issue use the Kleenex (perfume ) added with few drops of water to dampen it and clean off those contact on the holder. You should let the unit sit 24 hours for best results. Before printing anything run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple of times. Print the test page to look for the condition.


Thank you !!

It wont print and everytime i try to print it says error #1200


1. Unplug printer from wall and remove power supply.

2. Unplug any phone lines or USB cords connected.

3. Remove printer attachments, paper trays and phone.

Figure 1 - Printer paper holder and completed print tray

4. Lift the front cover of the printer and remove the white rubber bar by pulling the blue lever on right towards you.

Figure 2 – Top view of printer showing the white rubber feed bar with purple attachment

5. Remove the screws underneath the front cover (6 screws), back of printer (2 screws), and bottom of printer (1). View the images below to find where to remove the screws.

5. Cont…

Figure 5 - Bottom view of printer. Image on left is cover to screw. Gently remove ribbon cable2_bing.gif to reveal the gold screw beneath

6. Flip the front cover open and gently lift the top of the printer cover. Keep front cover open.

7. Remove the ink cartridges2_bing.gif out of their carriage.

Figure 6 - Displays ink cartridge2_bing.gif carriage with ink cartridges removed.
Caution: Electrical hazard. Keep hand and metal pieces clear of board or any other electrical wires or parts.

NOTICE: The ink cartridges are all the way to one end. If the X4270 is plugged in, the cartridge carrier is stuck and doesn’t move. After further investigation a noticeable small black plastic lever is preventing the ink cartridges from moving. Photo below shows lever up and down (cartridges already moved in image below).

Figure 7 - Shows inside of X4270 and the lever that causes error #1200. Image on left displays lever up. Image on right displays lever down.

8. Push lever down clockwise so it is flush with plastic wall. Refer to image on right in Figure 6.

9. Lift the front cover open (if not already open) and plug in2_bing.gif the X4270. Cartridges should move to center as if preparing for replacement.

10. Unplug the X4270 and remove power supply.

11. Remove bottom assembly carefully.

Figure 8 - Displays bottom assembly with lever and spring
Note: The cause of this problem is the spring slides out of place over time, probably because of ink shed on one end of its loop and loop attachment.

Figure 9 - Displays loop attachment

12. Place spring in loop attachment and use hot tip of heated tool to melt top of loop attachment to prevent further errors. Melt top of loop attachment similar of that to a mushroom top.

Figure 10 - Displays fix for jammed carriage.

13. Reattach the lever to the bottom assembly and slide back into place inside the X4270.

14. Plug in and check if operational.

15. Reassemble X4270 using steps 3-7.

How to solve error SC471 on my Ricoh 3800C


That is a transfer belt lift up error. The transfer belt lifts up for color and goes down for black only prints. Open right side door and check for paper stuck in the area near black rubber roller. Sometimes the belt dosen;t lift correctly. Open front door and turn knob on upper left counterclock wise to lower black transfer roller. On brown cover remove the top left screw and bottom right one (need to look on bottom side of cover) Slilde transfer unit out then back in. It is also possible the sensor inside machine is dirty.

I have a C3530 MFP and it won't print because it says check toner cartridge black. Toner Sensor Error


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Toner sensor error is related to the agitator inside the toner cartridge, it occasionally falls out of its housing so it does not move the toner sensor which is the white plastic piece that moves up and down on the coloured handle, the toner sensors themselves see this white flag if it doesn’t move then the printer thinks the sensor is broken so toner sensor error is flagged and if the flag moves too quickly the machine thinks the toner is empty. To resolve the issue your printer is facing with please check that toner lock lever is in position and follow the following procedure---

Press the cover release and open the printer’s top cover fully. Make sure the Toner Cartridge in question is correctly positioned and the right hand clip is pushed back. While holding it by its top centre, lift the image drum, complete with its toner cartridge, up and out of the printer. On the Right hand side of the toner look for a sensor patch, make sure this is not dirty. If it is dirty clean it with a soft object such as cotton wool. Now look inside the printer opposite to where the sensor patch would sit. There is a black square with a sensor located inside and check that this is not dirty. Now replace the drum and toner, and close the printer cover. Try to print a test page and it will start printing normally.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

E511


E511 is a TRO sensor error (cannot detect rotation of PCU belt), don't panic its probably just a dirty sensor. Turn off & raise the scanner unit fully & open the top printer cover. Lift the orange lever and lift the PCU out of the printer using the strap. First of all turn the PCU onto its back but avoid any bright light on the blue roller (it's called the "Drum" and it is light sensitive and very easily scratched so be careful with it and avoid touching the blue surface if possible). Rotate the white plastic gears at the ends of the drum until a little silver square appears in the cut-away section of the cover, this reflects the light onto the sensor so make sure it is cleaned with a soft cloth. Next look inside the printer and you will see a metal strip running across from side to side, mounted on this is the TRO sensor. Give this a clean also with the cloth. One more thing to clean is the sensor at the back, you will see a small black plastic spring loaded lever, push this down and wipe the sensor. Do not try to lift the lever back into position, it will spring back when the PCU is refitted. Refit the PCU, close the covers and give it a try.
If still not working the cause is either a faulty MCU board or possibly a faulty PCU, but to be sure it will need checking by a repair tech as diagnosis by email is difficult.
Good luck, please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Error e520


E520 is a 2nd BTR sensor error. It is usually caused by waste toner getting on the sensor. Turn off the printer and open the top panel. Lift up the orange handle to unlock the PCU and remove the PCU by lifting it up using the carry handle. Be careful with the PCU drum as it is easily scratched and avoid bright light. Inside the printer on the rear "wall" is a spring loaded cover which can be pushed down to uncover the sensor. It will stick in the down position, do NOT try to force it up again (it will spring back into the right position when the PCU is refitted). Give the sensor a wipe with a soft cloth and refit the PCU. Close the lid and turn back on, with luck all will now be well. If you still have the same error it is time to get proffessional help unless you are experienced at testing voltages and taking printers apart.

Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate this solution.
