It sounds like you have some serious wiring issues within the building / house you are in, and voltage is being sent back through ground when the printers fuser goes into warm-up.

A line conditioner / stabilizer may help, but honestly, I would call an electrician before it completely shorts out the computer, or burns the house down.

Power save mode sleep


Hi Brian,

The printer goes to sleep mode irrespective of what cartridge you have in the printer. Printer goes to sleep mode if the printer is not in use.

HOW DO I TURN OFF THE SLEEP MODE ON MY PRINTER BROTHER MFC 7420


Setting the Sleep Time reduces power consumption by turning off the fuser inside the MFC while it is idle. You can choose how long the MFC is idle (from 00 to 99 minutes) before it goes into sleep mode. The timer is automatically reset when the MFC receives a Fax or PC data or makes a copy. The factory setting is 05 minutes.
To turn Sleep Mode off press Menu/Set, 1, 6, 2. Then use the dial pad to enter the length of time the MFC is idle before it goes into sleep mode, in this case 00 so it wouldn't go to Sleep mode at all. Press Stop/Exit.

How do I turn off the sleep mode on a Dell MFP1815dn?


Hi there!

The printer's menu system should give you the option to turn off Power Save Mode.

Select Menu/Machine Setup/Power Save and the option should be available to turn off the feature.

This printer seems to have a reputation for causing headaches when waking up from sleep mode. Hopefully this will be your relief!

Good luck!

Computer goes into Hybernate Mode after each print Job.


Try plugging the printer power cable into a different power outlet, preferably an outlet that is not shared. I had a similar problem but in my case, the computer would crash. For some reason, the HL-5250DN demands so much electricity on starting a job that it doesn't play nice with the other equipment.

Infrequent use of Xerox Phaser 8500


The reason he told you that is because ;
if left on permanently the fuser unit has a lamp ( nowadays the newer ones use a ceramic) the lamp continually comes on to keep the fuser warm and ready for you to print.which may cause the lamp to burn prematurely, most business keep theirs on all day with out the sleep mode( too busy to wait to warm up),

But, when you use the sleep mode most models do not turn on the lamp ( if it does it only puts out minimal power) but keep the power ready, which is why when you go to print it takes awhile to warm up.
The lamps are very resilient and last several years before having to change.
