Question about Fax Machines

I have a Minolta EP-2050 copier that needs part #1136-6804-02 wire harness. This is the cable that goes to the exposure lamp. This part is no longer available. Any suggestions as to where to get obsolete parts? Howard T.

    I have tried the e-bay thing and no luck yet.

    I have talked to ARC Services and no luck. I also talked to Percission Roller. Minolta charges only $27 for this cable if they had it. Hard to give up for such a simple repair. It's hard for me to give up.

Hey herb

maybe theres is another name for that type of harness.. have you tried checking out this site here

if its really that hard to find, why not look for a same copier thats in auction on ebay or such... then you can just get the wire harness...just a thought.

    herb,

    suggestion, if you still have the old wire harness... you could look for a particular specialty shop which would make an exact replica for that. it may be a long shot but so far, since this harness is low stock or no stock at all, this may be your only chance.

    27 dollars aint so bad...it would definitely give more than that it exchange for the services right...

It looks like the manufacturers do not keep a stock of parts for servicing.
Is this like a flex ribbon cable?
You can try to customize it, since I do't think you would be able to find a part like that unless you buy another non working device similar to yours.

    If I were you, knowing that they don't make the part makes it feel like the right time to just upgrade to a newer model. Please let me know if you need any further help. Thanks and Have a Good Day.

    definitely a hard part to find, been looking the last hour, Is there anyway that you could possibly wire it up or maybe use a wire harness from a different model, I would call the company and see if they know of any compatible ones or even email pictures of the piece to other manufacturers and see if they have one that might work.

What error c9402 for bizhub252c konica minolta copier


I have never personally seen or dealt with this code on a C252 but here is the service manual info for you.
C9402: Exposure Lamp turning on at abnormal timing.

• The average output value of the CCD Sensor with

the Scanner at its standby position is a predetermined
value or more at the end of a scan job.

What this means is that the exposure lamp came on when it was not supposed to for some reason. Have you tried resetting the code by opening and closing the front door? If that fails turn the machine off then back on using the MAIN power switch not the one up on the control panel.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Photo copys are intermittently coming out black without copier settings being changed


you need to watch the exposure lamp under the glass . see if it goes out during a copy run. if so you may have a bad lamp, wires, invertor or pcb. if it does not go out you may need a drum, chagre replacemnet or developer. you may need a tech to look at it.

Canon NP 6030 photocopier is printing all black. Cannot rectify by altering shading setting. Appreciate any help to fix ASAP. warrengevans@tadaust.org.au


Hi
If it is solid black with no hint of an image in the backround, its an exposure lamp or exposure lamp fuse. Both are not user replaceable. To check, open the copyboard(lid over the glass) and push the print button. If you dont see the lamp come on under the glass it is most likely one of the 2 things mentionerd above.

Error code H 4 on Sharp AL 1041 copier


H4 is a fuser error. It sometimes can be cleared out. But sometimes it is the fuser lamp or one of the heat sensors.

Try to clear the error in service mode by hitting. clear, auto(exposure), clear, auto. The display will go blank, enter 14 and hit start key, turn power off/on, if problem is gone then you overheated, if not then you need a tech. Good luck.
