Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I used this for a while with excellent results until I got L2 or L3 errors. Haven't been able to find a Maintenance manual. Can you help please?
An L2 code indicates that the ROS PWB has failed to detect a start of scan signal. A L3 is the laser beam will not go on. In english this means that the laser has failed or power going to it has failed. As a former Xerox tech that worked on this model unless you have a spare 4045 for parts it is time for a new printer. You can check all the connections to the laser but it more than likely has a bad laser assembly, (or parts of the assembly-polygon motor,ROS pwb, laser diode) or IOTC pwb. If you are not familiar with servicing laser printers to not attempt to repair this yourself. Working on this laser printer can be hazardous. You cannot see the laser beam and could cause permanent eye damage. It also has high voltages in this printer. Be careful and hope this helps.

From the manual I have the 4045 LASER CP MODEL 150 REFERENCE MANUAL all it says about either L2 or L3 is that they are "Scanning failure"s and said to look at the User manual "Operating the 4045" section
in the back of that the only mention I found was that L2, L3, and L5 are "illuminator malfunctions."

I checked my stash and I don't have a manual for this specific model. However, you can purchase a service manual for $11.99:
Good luck my friend.
