This message appears when the printer cannot recognize the fuser - probably because you haven't reseted the counter. Make sure it's properly installed. If it is then you will need to perform the reset procedure
1. Press Additional Functions Key
2. Press # key
3. Arrow to number 7, Printer and press Set
4. Arrow to number 4, Printer Re-Set and press Set.
5. Press Yes, re-set printer (hit minus key - back arrow).
6. Unplug the machine and plug it back in.

Replaced fuser unit on HP 4350dtn and now get a 50.5 error.


The 50.5 error indicates "wrong fuser installed" on a 4350DTN printer the correct fuser is RM1-1082, it will not work with RM1-0101 even if the 0101 fits the printer. Remove the fuser and look for a small label giving the part number and check it. If you need to get a fuser let me know, we have them in stock.
