Fuser unit overheat problem

Fusing unit overheats, and melts pressure roller to hot roller, and melts the hot roller bushings to the fusing unit frame.

Replacing the complete fusing unit results in the same condition after about 2 minutes from power on.

This high temprature condition does not trip the thermal fuse al all.

Any suggestions?

Where did you buy it from ? if they have return policy, then return the unit.
It's a fire hazard if the thermal fuse doesn't trip.
I have the same printer and have no problems with it, only it sucks alot of power.

Samsung does have a Warrenty on the printers maybe contact them and see how they will fix it for you.

Ricoh SP 111 with C8 Error:

The C8 is a fuser error. As a safety feature, the machine will be disabled (to prevent fire and what not.. )

The service manual says that SC542 is caused by a too low fuser temperature, after 5 readings.
Since the hot roller was 5°C below the reload
(operating) temperature the fusing thermistor is deformed or out of position or full of gunk (toner residue). Or there may be a piece of paper between the sensor and the hot roller.
The fusing lamp harness can also bee loose, broken or defective.
The fusing unit can be defective
After servicing the machine to solve the problem, the service
technician must execute a "Fuser SC Reset". Otherwise, the machine
will continue to issue this SC code and cannot be operated.

Executing Fuser SC Reset
1. After correcting the problem, open Smart Organizing Monitor.
2. Enter the service mode to display the Service Mode screen.
3. On the Service Mode screen, click [Fuser SC Reset]. This releases the fatal fusing error
which locks the machine.
4. Select "On" for Fuser SC Detect. This setting shuts down the machine if three successive
paper jams occur in the fusing unit.

Canon ir2000 fusing unit film or top roller

This model has an upper fusing roller & a lower pressure roller.
If you have a print quality issue (that you have narrowed down to the fuser unit) then you will need to replace the upper fusing roller (not an easy job best to replace the fuser unit complete)

The code means that the fuser unit the hot part which fuses the toner to the paper is not getting the 117VAC or120VAC power to the heating lamps inside the upper fusing roller and or bottom. Fusing unit uses heat and pressure to fuse the toner to the paper.

After printing, last part of the paper is not released from the printer

99% the problem is in fusing section. The fuser fixing film is not well lubricated or even damaged. It has to be replaced with new one, or just cleaned and lubricated again. Also there can be a problem with pressure roller, or pressure roller bushings, but you have to disassembled the fuser to see.
good luck

Basically when the Ricoh Aficio prints anything out the toner just lies on the page and will not stick. you can wipe the toner off with your hand. Does anyone know what this problem might be and how to...

Probably not much you can do there are 2 possibilities here. First there is the possibility that you have lost fusing pressure. The fusing unit in this machine using a combination of heat and pressure to "fuse" the toner onto the paper. You may have broken a fuser frame which is a common problem on the 220. This cause the fusing rollers to loose their pressure against each other and thus stop fusing. This usually causes poor or no fusing more on one side than the other. You might want to let me know if the toner wiping off is consistent accross the entire page.
The other possible cause is your thermistor set is bad. The thermistor reds the temperature of the fuser rollers so the machine knows when they are up to the proper temperature for fusing. I some circumstances I have seen them go bad and always register to the machine that the fuser is hot enough when it is not.
Either way you are going to have to be comfortable with removing the fusing unit from the machine and then dis-assembling parts of it in order to repair it. If you are interested in trying this you can reply to this post and I can at least give you the part numbers you might need depending on what you find.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
