Is it asking you to reseat the fuser or reset the fuser?

These printers do not have any kind of reset for new consumables such as the fuser. They will be automatically detected by the printer. Though sometimes it will take several hundred pages before the proper levels are detected on the new parts.

If it is asking you to reseat the fuser then you need to open the front panel and remove the fuser. Once it is out make sure that there aren't any pieces of paper or protective plastic that are covering any of the connectors.

Once that is done, simply slide the fuser back into place and re tighten the screw that holds it in. After the fuser has been reinstalled you will need to turn the big blue knob on the fuser several turns in the direction of the arrows that are printed on the knob.

You can do this procedure either with the printer turned on or off.

Hello i hope someone can help me with my problem i need reset the fuser uit xerox phaser 7760,because the rollers both(up,low) are like new condition thank you


You can get more life out of the fuser by removing one end and placing a piece of tin foil OVER the THREE FUSES, which are designed to blow at set times. Just tape it in place with some tape.
Good Luck

This problem occurs do to a defect in the fuser drawer. In the fuser drawer, there are two black plastic parts that can go up or down. Their function is to push the belt cleaner on and off the accumulator belt after every pass. A defect in this system causes these parts to stay up, pushing the belt cleaner on to the belt every step except the last one, causing only the black toner to remain on the belt.
It's hard to track what the exact cause is but I would recommend checking gearing and gear teeth in your fuser drawer.

Fan Failure Error 54


1 of 2 things.
You need to clean or replace the fan.
You have to remove the back, right side and top cover to access that fan.It is near the back just behind the fuser module.
It could also be the low voltage power supply fan. Most likely the fuser fan.
Once you remove the fan, there is a label on it, remove the label, There is a rubber plug behind the label, remove the plug and drip some lubricant into the fan. Reassembly and it should be ok.
I would recommend replacing the defective fan though.
Here is a very reliable part source.
https://www.partsdrop.com/store/

If you call ask for Britt and specify the model number and that you need a fuser fan and probably order a Power supply fan, Neither are very expensive.
Have both on hand to be 100 percent sure the problem is resolved, But its a 90 percent fuser fan failure code. It operated in a heated area and can dry out faster.

You must manually reset the Belt Cleaner life after replacing the belt cleaner.

Resetting Belt Cleaner Life
  • Resetting the belt cleaner life is to be performed only if the Belt Cleaner Assembly was defective and or the assembly is replaced before an end of life or near end of life message. Not to extend the life of the assembly. Doing so may cause premature failure of other internal printer components.

  • The printer will prompt the user to reset the life counts if the assembly is replaced after receiving a Replace Belt Cleaner Assembly or Replace Belt Cleaner Assembly Soon message.
note_image33x30.gif    Note: If the main Menu does not appear on the front panel screen and only Replace Belt Cleaner Assembly is displayed, there may be a print job that is either processing or currently printing. Try the following steps to clear the print jobs and reset the Belt Cleaner life:
  1. Press the cancel button several times to flush processing jobs from the printer.

  2. If you do not receive access to the front panel menu by doing this, then power off the printer and disconnect Ethernet, parallel or USB cable from the printer.

  3. Turn the printer back on, and while it is powering up, immediately start pushing the cancel key repeatedly until you receive access to the front panel menu.

  4. If the printer menu appears on the front panel screen, follow the instructions below to reset the Belt Cleaner life if the printer didn't prompt you to reset it:


  1. With Menus highlighted press OK.

  2. Press the Down Arrow and scroll to Supplies Info Menu.

  3. Press OK.

  4. Press the Down Arrow and scroll to Exit at the bottom of the menu tree.

  5. Now scroll up to Reset Belt Cleaner Life
  6. .
  7. Press OK.

  8. Reset Belt Cleaner Life NOW is displayed.

  9. Press OK to reset the belt cleaner life.
