when you replaced the maintenance kit - did you replace the Fuser assembly as well - as this faultr is down to the pressure off the fuser roller to fix the image also there are two blue tabs that set the fuser unit to letter mode(less Pressure) these can be accessed without removing the fuser and are accessible from the left door. ensure the levers are set to paper and not letter. if the fuser is still not fixing the image correctly then a new fuser unit assembly is required as fuser units are non servicable.
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.
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.
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)
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.
