There is a door on the back cover. It is located on the lower right hand side. Take a quarter, and turn the screw until the door comes off. Inside is a tank, that you fill with the proper silicone oil.

How can I stop the squeaking when printing?

Put the printer on a rubber place mat. It greatly reduced vibration and noise. You can also (VERY VERY CAREFULLY) add a drop of silicone oil using a tooth pick to the axles of the rollers that move the paper though the printer. Be very very careful not to get oil anywhere else.

If you have a silicone oil from a spray can, spray it into a disposable plastic cup and use the toothpick or the shaft of a cotton swap (Q-tip) - pull all the fur off of it before using.

Error Code SC 570

You need to refill the oil [silicon oil] in the fuser unit. This error shows when the oil is used up or has lesser quantity. The error will be reset after the oil is refilled. But I highly recommend an experience tech to do this, otherwise you may damage machine/components.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Describe your GESTETNER DSC232 ERROR SC481 Problem

sc481 is an error relating to how the transfer belt moves. The first thing to check is to make sure the transfer belt is not out of position -- it should be riding flat on its rollers, with no wrinkling or shifting. If the belt looks fine, you may need to replace either the belt (there is a detection mark on it that needs to be read by a sensor) or the main motor. Since this is such an old copier, it may be hard to find replacement parts for it, however.

Hope that helps!

Printer prints blurily! help!!

your fuser roller is dirty it is offsetting the image


turn machine off and let it cool

there may be a felt cleaning pad ( rod) that you can remove and put some silicone oil on

if you do not see the pad open the machine and release the fuser rollers( area where you would remove a jam at exitit

once you see the fuser area see if you can locate fuser oil (most macines have a small bottle
it is silicone oil that cleans the rollers

call around to staples etc and copy dealers to get some and clean the rolers with a cotton clth and the oil

Good luck
