I truly believe that you did not take the fuser out. It is not a simple process and is not readily accessible.
You most likely took out the toner cartridge, which works with the fuser.
The fuser is what "fuses" the toner to the paper so the documents print as expected. There are fuser kits that can be purchased, and they usually come with some decent instructions.


in case of new printer
A fuser problem is serious but if it is is a new printer, use the warranty now. Don't play with it as more than likely you can't recover and you *MAY VOID* the warranty in any attempts, so use the warranty. You should have returned it immediately once the problem cropped-up to be within the quicker satisfaction settlement period, you may now have to deal with a warranty center if not the vendor themselves for repair, but start the process. Plus, document this as well, cal,s letters, etc. to best serve yourself if any other problems arise.

To explain what the fuser is, one must explain what the fuser does.

A laser printer works by assembling the page in its memory, then transfers that "image" by scanning a drum. The drum then picks up a charge which will attract the toner. By varying the laser you can induce specific dots, creating an image on the drum. The drum is rotated through the toner, the charge then attracts the oppositely charged toner particles (the uncharged sections don't have anything) The drum, now dark with toner, is touched to the paper, which has an opposite charge, thus transfer all the toner over to the paper. Then the paper is sent THROUGH the fuser, which basically MELTS the toner onto the paper permanently.

If the fuser is too hot, that means the temp control unit for the printer fuser has FAILED, and that is NOT something you can fix by yourself. The labor will likely cost more than the printer unless it's under warranty.

You took out the toner cartridge, which is NOT the fuser. Toner cartridge is just the toner and the drum together in one unit. The fuser is where it warns "high temp! do not touch!"

Just buy another printer or use the backup printer. Again, this is NOT something you can fix by yourself.

We have an HP 3550 color printer that has a 50.1 Fuser Error. Will replacement of the fuser correct the problem?


The most common reason that causes a fuser error is its failure to reach operating temperature. If the fuser area can be accessed, check to see if there is noticeable heat present. If not, the fuser may not be getting the required voltage to bring it to temperature and you may need technical help to determine the exact cause of the error.

HP Color LaserJet 2840 keeps showing 50.2 Fuser error message. Nothing helps correct problem. What to do? Have tried repeatedly turning printer off, waiting several seconds and turning on again. Each time...


The fuser is the heating unit near the paper exit, and that error means the lamp is burned out, the overtemp sensor is out, or the thermistor in the fuser is bad. About all you can do is replace the fuser. www.precisionroller.com will have a new fuser for you.

HP Laserjet 3550 Fuser Jam Error 13.20 Had it in


You need to ask them to change the fuser..The fuser is the part of the printer that actually melts the toner onto the page. Here is a website that gives you more info on the fuser so they can't B.S. you anymore..either the fuser works or it doesn't..

HP Colour Laserjet 3550 printing problems


I can tell you that it is NOT the Fuser unit. I would change the drum unit first. This would be the most likely cause.

turn off the printer. remove the duplex device from the printer. turn on the printer. enter the diagnostic menu. enter the menu for sensor and motors. select the fuser motor and let it run. if you can hear it its ok (its not such a noicy one ... you have to listen very good) - follow up the next steps:

turn off the printer. turn on the printer. enter the service menu - pin code is: 09470005. set to 0 all counters for mono print, color print and the counter after service. leave the menu.

turn off the printer, reinstall the duplax device. turn on the printer.

result: the error msg is gone. its just HP wants to sell theyr service contracts.
