Question about Xerox Phaser 6100/BD Laser Printer
I recently purchased a 6100 from ebay and it was working fine up until last week when it came up with "transfer belt error" and "lever unlocking error" As it's a 2nd-hand printer i don't have a problem replacing the transfer belt but the lever unlocking error is worrying me? also the LED on tray 1 is on also. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
This printer is same as Samsung CLP-500. So the problem is the same: Contaminated transfer belt sensor.
Do as follow:
Lift transfer belt assy from printer(Drop down back door 90 degree, press white button, lift top cover and release 2 locking levers, grab handle, pull the belt unit out), turn upside down & rotate plastic roller until small clear "window" appears along one edge of belt. Clean both sides of clear window with cotton bud. on same side as window, remove 2 screws securing flimsy plastic cover to gain acess to sensor, (follow red/black wires)remove a screw and pull out "U" shaped sensor(light transmiter and receiver), cotton bud and blow away dust on slits on inner surfaces of sensor. Reassamble and everything should be ok.If not, senser may be too contaminated, clean slits vigorousley with cotton bud, or maybe you just need a new sensor.
The theory is that printer detect transfer belt by transmit light through the clear "window". If either window not clear or sensor is contaminated, light will not reach the receriver part of the sensor, printer will report such errors.

This is an ongoing problem. When you press the button, the button is supposed to depress a black thing at the bottom, moving the white latches on both sides of the cover. Underneath the cover is the transfer belt & the drum.
as a work around..you have to use a long thin slot screw driver to move the other latch..
the cover will pop up slightly to allow you go unlatch the lock.
the mechanism that is preventing this is at the back side of the printer

With the lCD screen facing you, open the top door. At the left of the opened door are (2) white rectangular push buttons just in front of the transfer belt assembly. Tape some folded up paper over the buttons so the sloppyness of the top door is taken up. Now the unlocking lever has some extra height to add that much needed push. Mine is now working fine.

I can't find that in any documentation.
The Lever unlocking error. Is that the message you are getting?
Can you tell me when it occurs. Does pressing any covers make it go away?
The transfer belt error I am sure you understand.
But if you can give me more detail with the lever message I may be able to replicate it and give you an answer.
