That is a problem with the polygon mirror motor. That is the motor that rotates the missors in the laser assembly.
Most likely have to replace the laser.
Google a business called The Parts Drop.
Give them a call and ask for Britt. He will help you.
I believe there are 2 different lasers for that machine. I am not sure just the mirror motor is spared.

An L6 usually means the motor that spins the mirrors in the laser unit has failed.
You can try unplugging the machine, removing the back cover and unplugging and reseating the plugs on the main circuit board, if that doesnt work, then there is probably a 90 percent chance the laser will need to be replaced. Not an easy job to replace. You can try looking on E-bay or other online part sources. But used really isn't the way to go on a laser and it would be at least $200 to purchase one, wish I had better news .

E7-03 error code on work center xe88 xerox

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

L6:The Main PWB sensed a Polygon motor lock signal error. 5-L6 only: Check the connector CN23 on the Main PWB and the wires and connectors on the Laser Module. If connector and wires are not damaged, replace laser module. What that normally means is the laser mirror motor has failed. That normal price for that item is normally over $300. Here is a parts dealer to contact to see if they have it in stock.

The L6 indicates the machine is not seeing the motor in the laser, that rotates the mirrors.
There are 3 possibilities, I will list them in order of probability.
1 The Laser unit itself.
2. The cable connection on the Main Board.
3. The Main Board itself.
The laser depending on the lens, Curved or straight is $323 and $393.
the main board will cost in the $250-$400 range depending on the vendor.
That is without labor.
