I had the same problem a few months ago. After trying to pull out and reseat the fuser a few times (I would even get one or two prints out of it, in between), I finally ordered another fuser and problem has gone away. I did google and purchsing site searches (pricegrabber, pricewatch, etc) and found a decent priced site, that also gave discount for your returned bad unit (they gave you so many days to return it).

920 Fuser Error indicates the Fuser is below temperature while printing. The fuser, melts or fuses the toner to the media and has a heat roller and a pressure roller. The heated roller is heated by a halogen lamp or in some cases a solid state ceramic heating element and is subject to failure.
If this is the first time you have seen the error
Power the printer off.
Leave the printer powered off for 20 to 30 seconds.
Power the printer back on. If it comes up to the Ready state, try printing again.
If the fuser error does not return, continue using the printer as normal but observe it closely over the next few days to see if the error returns.
If the fuser error returns on power-up or if the error returns as soon as you try to print or at a later date, the printer will probably require service to correct the issue.
One thing that you can check as well (since it is a "under temperature" error), is to make sure the printer is not plugged in to a UPS/surge protector. The printer may not be getting enough electricity to heat up the fuser. Try plugin it in to directly to the wall/different outlet and see if the error persists.
If this does not correct it, you need to replace the fuser.

When a 50.x fuser appear its because the fuser its worn, its probably overheating. I can suggest to take it out (in the back you will see 2 blue locks) for about half hour (turn the unit off before you are doing that) and put it back in. If the error persist you need a new fuser. Good luck
"When the printer fuser fails it prompts many HP laser printers to display an ERROR CODE 50 service code" same could be said about the lexmark fuser malfunction replacining a fuser can be expensive might be better to get another printer unless you have a special bond like me i find it hard to just throw away things that have gone bad
Hello, The 50.2 error means your fuser is not heating up. You will need to order either just the fuser HP Part # RG5-7060 or the maintenance kit HP part # Q1860-69002. Check your local computer store or we can ship the parts to you. If you need additional information contact me at our web site below.
A 50 Service error is a fuser error. Turn the printer off for 5 to 10 minutes, then turn it back on. If the error is still there, I think your going to need to make a service call you can try reseating the fuser, but be sure to let the fuser cool completely before touching it. Good Luck the HP Laserjet 4p is a great printer.
If the display panel reads 50 FUSER ERROR, CYCLE POWER, turn the printer off for 15 minutes. This allows the capacitor that is responsible for signaling this error to discharge. If you don't wait 15 minutes you will continue to get this error even if you have replaced the fuser. If it continues to show the error, then you need to replace the fuser. It is easy to replace.
The fuser maintenance kit is about $119. on the web. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Usually this means that the fuser is not heating to the correct operating temperature. Remove the fuser and check all contacts. Be careful it can be very hot. Always let it cool down for atleast 30 minutes before touching the face of the fuser. After you check it over and clean off any contacts, reseat the fuser back into the printer. Plug it back in and turn the printer on. If this doesn't work and you still get the error, the fuser needs to be replaced.
A 50 Service error is a fuser error. Turn the printer off for at least 10 minutes, then turn it back on. If the error is still there, you can try reseating the fuser, but be sure to let the fuser cool completely before touching it.
If you still have the 50 Service error after reseating the fuser, you might need a new fuser.
You can access the fuser by opening the rear door. It's located directly above the paper tray. There are two screws that hold it in place. Remove those two screws, and the fuser slides outs.
Hope this helps.
