"Cannot Adjust Fusing Unit"

I have recently replaced my fusing unit. Upon powerup with the new unit I tried to run the fuser adjustment procedure. It started and after a few moments failed. I entered the Maintanence menu and tried to run the fuser adjustment and I got the message "Cannot Adjust, See Manuel". After looking at the manuel it said I had to make sure I had plenty of toner, so I put in all new toner cartriges. Still no luck getting the fuser to adjust and even my IKON guy was confused. Got any suggestions. I also have the same problem. I replaced the fuser unit according to the instructions but I gat a message telling me to adjust the fuser unit in the maintenance menu. When I try this, it fails and says "Cannot adjust, see users guide". The users guide does not explain why this is happening nor how to correct this. Someone suggested to set the transfer belt to the home position. I'm not sure how to do this. The manuals do not even mention a transfer belt anywhere on the printer. Any help would be appreciated

Ricoh mpc3500 fuser unit setting error


Most common problem is the electrical connector on the fusing unit or the connector that the fusing unit connects to inside the machine is broken. So when you push the Fusing Unit in to the machine the connector moves out of position and doesn't connect properly.

Fusing unit is not set properly


turn the printer off and reinstall the unit after it has cooled off (30 minutes). Then open cover B and D. Remove the fuser unit, then reinstall it properly. Close covers D and B. The error clears automatically if the fuser unit is properly installed.

If the error is not cleared, the fuser unit is out of order. Replace it with a new fuser unit.

I have a Konica Minolta C650 Bizhub. It required me to replace the fusing unit. I did. However, the machine does not recognize the new fuser. It still gives the "replace fusing unit soon"...


There is a fuse in a new fuser unit that resets the internal electronic counter. There is no other way to reset the counter. You either need to return the fuser unit to where you got it and request another one or have someone replace the fuse that is inside the new fuser unit you bought. My suspicion is that the unit either is NOT new and maybe someone scammed you or that the unit is a rebuilt unit that someone forgot to replace the fuse in. I stock the fuses so they are readily available from numerous sources. I can provide you with those if needed. Basically you remove the fuser and then remove a cover that is around the large connector on the fuser. Then hidden inside the wiring bundle you look for a plastic zip tie that is holding the fuse. The fuse is encased in a section of clear shrink tubing. You must cut this fuse out and replace with a new one.
Hope this helps.

Generally, when you have a ghosting problem, the issue is with the fusing unit. If you have a new fusing unit (or if you can get one) install the new unit and the problem should go away.

If you don't have access to a new fuser, you can try replacing the drum/imaging unit. Sometimes a ghosting problem can be caused by a bad cleaning unit (inside the imaging unit), but usually it's the fuser causing the problem.

Unfortunately, on the AP3800C the oil supply unit is part of the fusing unit. However, you can purchase just the oil supply portion of the fusing unit and replace that (part #G0604022).

I'm not sure how much that would cost, but it's got to be cheaper than a whole new fusing unit.

Canon IR5000 not running 20 lb. will run 60lb. and cover. 20 gets stuck in middle


If it's getting stuck in the Middle , I am assuming it's getting stuck right a the fusing section, Ok if it is running 60 lbs of paper greatly but, jams in the Middle , this tells me your fuser needs to be adjusted, This is something you don't want to do if your NOT a Service Technician most likely if your fuser was adjusted for 60lb paper the temperture was also adjusted so the paper won't be too too hot, I am certain your fusing unit will need to be adjusted or the Upper fuser/Lower Fusers are worn. Yea, you'll have to call a indiepent or an authorized dealer for this, unless you know how to rebuild the fuser yourself- be careful- this is exteremely hot unit.

press # then intrrupt then c them intrrupt then display will show simulation mode then enter 14 then press ok key


If this is not enough then press press thermostat on fuser unit by removing the unit from machine this requires tech knowledge

OR you can try by replacing thermistor of fusing unit

If by above procedure the prob is not solved then and then you replace the fusing lamp

Even though u can check the lamp by removing back cover and turn on the machine u can observe the light of fusing lamp

pl ask for any difficulty.
