What helped me was this: when you close the fuser cover, there are two white tabs that lock the paper feed assembly in. Well, the tab on the left tends to slip off if not closed correctly. Try closing the lid slowly putting more pressure on the left side of the lid. What happens is when the tab slips off, the paper never reaches the fuser and the printer throws the fuser 50.2 error.
First, make sure that both wire connectors on the right side of the fuser are seated correctly.
Then, see if there is paper sticking a little way out of the fuser. If so, chances are the exit sensor in the fuser is not functioning correctly.
You can put the old fuser back in and verify this if no error codes come up.
It could be one of two things, first look at the cartridge, turn it upside down and slide the lid open. Do not touch the drum inside just look and see if you have a streak of toner on it. Or if you used labels a label could be stuck in it. change cartridge, second problem it could be the fuser. You will have to look in the back and see if the fuser roller is ripped. If so you will need a new fuser.
yes you may it refers to a temp error int eh fuser... you may have a faulty thermistor or thermo fuse.. if you go into teh service mode by presssing teh yellow clear butto and then press 107 and then hold down the stop button the sreen will change turn the machine off and turn on again see if the errpr goes if it does it could have been just a temp error if it warms up then comes back on again you will have to look at the fuser.. you can check the fuser by touching the casing and see if it is warm after you have turned the machine back on..if it is warm the error could just be due to a build up of toner on the thermistor.. if you know about machines you can take the fuser out by opening the front of the machine up look to top right where fuser is there is a screw under the blue dial on the fuser take that out the fuser slides out put it on some paper and on the right hand side is the thermistors held inby a small screw if you take them out you may see some build up of toner on the resistor carefully clean this off.. put back together and turn on .. hopefully it will run ok.. good luck A
Shouldn't be a problem, provided you use labels that are intended for a laser printer. Inkjet labels can wreck your laser printer (inkjet labels can't cope with the heat of the fuser in a laser printer).
Use the right template in your Wordprocessor package for the labels you are using (or create a custom label layout in your Word processor).
Use the Multi Purpose Feeder input tray (fold down from the front door), put the labesl face down, print (making sure that you tell the printer to use Labels and the MPF. It's important to tell the printer that you are using labels, as these are thicker, and need more heat from the fuser (especially if you are printing several sheets of labels, as this cools the fuser a little)
I could not find the service manual from it but I saw (on an Italian website) that the fuser is accessed by openiing the rear door, It usually held in by 2 screws. Make sure that the unit is off and cold. Don't want you to get burned by a hot fuser.
Looks like the fuser is about $100 and up:
Normally smoke would be caused by label residue being left on the fuser rollers, I am assuming your use of the word label is correct and not a transparency (which is a common jamming source in laser printers) especially when someone mistakenly puts a inkjet transparency through a laser printer or mistakenly puts a clear plastic divider sheet through.
If you are sure all of the original label has come out and there is was no residue left directly on the fuser rollers, and the fact you now have smoke and an error code (which I do not have access to find service codes for Minolta), I suspect the fuser assembly is overheating now which is causing the error message (after probably 10 seconds after switch on from cold). This could mean the temperature sensor monitoring the fuser temp is either not touching the fuser due to label fragment lifting sensor off fuser roller surface or sensor is bent or damaged due to label revolving aorund or subsequent removal efforts.
Take a closer look and see if you can find a stray fragment stuck to a thermocouple sensor wiping against the fuser roller. Failing this then you probably need to send into service and ask for a quote to repair. Be aware that the fuser may have become scratched or otherwise damaged depending upon your label removal techniques....over zealous use of letter openers, nail files and small screwdrivers have destroyed many a good fuser assembly.
they are stuck in the fuser unit, try to take out the toner cartridge to see if you can get it from their. if not you may have to call for service help. you have to take the back of the machine apart and take out the fuser unit to get out the lables. sorry that i didnt have better help.
The user guide lists all the error codes and possible solutions.
Error 1 indicates a tape jam or low battery. To resolve, try removing the cassette and clearing the tape or replacing the battery.
