    open heat error

  • Cietra Mar 27, 2008

    I started to print a document, but the printer started beeping. So, I took a look and there was a message that said "Over Heat". There was a burning smell, so I turned off the printer. I waited a few minutes and turned it back on. Now, it goes back from "Open Heat Error" to "PC Print Pending". How do I fix this?

There are apparently two causes of fusers going bad in these printers.

First - Old age. The fuser is old and it dies. In that case, a new fuser will fix the problem.

Second - The fuser lamp control circuitry is bad. This can cause the fuser lamp to stay on all the time - which it ISN'T supposed to do. This in turn causes an overheat condition which will burn out the fuser and cause a burning smell.

If the second condition above is occuring, it will simply destroy a new fuser if one is installed without correcting the regulation problem. I have read that the controller board is serviceable separately.

Chances are that you are looking for your printer FUSER, not a fuse. The fuser is the rolling element that bonds (via heat) the plastic charged toner particles to your paper. It is located in the rear of the printer. Unplug, remove four screws that secure the back of the printer. Once removed, you will see a circuit board and the fuser. The fuser has two sets of wires (one on each side) that should be unplugged with your hands. Remove the four screws that keep the fuser module in place and replace that module (call Dell parts for replacement).

I have a xerox machine for ricoh mp 1600 le. now i have a error of 542. so please tel me what is the problem of xerox machin?


SC542 code on Ricoh's means that the fuser unit is not heating up properly. The fusing unit is the part that "fuses" or fixes the toner onto the paper and is located right where the paper exits your machine. Most of the time the SC542 code means that the thermister(s) in the fusing unit have failed. The thermister measures the temperature in the fusing unit. When these go bad the machine can not "see" the unit heating up so it throws the code. The thermisters will need to be replaced and the code cleared out from the machines memory by gong into the service mode. I would recommend calling your local service provider to effect repairs.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Color ink cartridge does not click in properly when installing new cartridge..gives error messege that cartridge is missing...when in fact it is there...will only print in black ink when I ignor error...


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
