Re: Silicone Oil refill
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.

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.
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.
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.
Error code 571 is for oil overflow sensor error.If you pull out fusing unit,on the left side of it there is an oil unit attached,that has oil sensor on it.Most common problem is the sensor is getting disconnected.After you checked the sensor connection,here the procedure to reset the error code:
Turn main power switch off and back on.Then press "clear modes" key, 107 and press and hold "Stop" key for until you see screen has changed. Touch "Copy SP" tab on the screen, the press 5810 and # key. Press "Execute" tab on the screen to reset fusing error code.After that turn the main power to the machine off for a few minutes.Turn the machine back on - the error code should be gone and the machine should be working now.
571 A Fusing oil overflow • The oil overflow sensor detects oil. • When the machine covers are closed, the oil supply unit is not detected. • When the machine covers are closed, the fusing unit is not detected.
