Re: malfunction code

C05 is a fuser code, it is reading a wrong temp. of the fuser. You can try to reset it. It could just be a power surge.If u want to try itis easy. Turn the power "off" and unplug the "adf" if so equiped. Open the front door and open the claim shell as if to remove a paper jam. Then remove the 3 screws( #2 phil) from the top back cover and remove the top back cover. Turn the power back "on" with the copier still clam shelled opened. On the back of the copier u will see the DC controler with a "white" plastic box on it. Right below that u will see a small "Black" botton, push it and it will reset the code. Close the copier back up and see if it come up to ready and make a copy. If it codes out agian open the clam shell and feel the fusing ass'y is it warm or cold? If it warm it could be a bad thermister or if it is cold it could be the thermal fuse or the fusing lamp is bad. If it dose not rest you need to call a copier repair company...... Make sure you put the covers back on and close the copier up and let the tech see the code.

Code c0500

C0500 is a warm-up error on those little machines. Try holding the stop button while switching on, that should reset the code. It sometimes happen if it's kinda cold, or when the power dips. If the code comes back, you'll have to replace the fuser unit.

I'm getting a malfunction code C0500

C0500 is a heater failure, the fuser section failed to get to the desired temp in a given period of time.

Try resetting the code, there is a reset switch behind the access panel,at the contrast knob inside the machine.

Hope this helps.
