Check your stapler. If you removed a jam from the sorter you may have accidentally moved the stapler so it is not sitting at a 45 degree angle when you open the front door of the sorter. There's a little lever you can push to swivel the stapler, however don't try to force it. You may have to pry up the plastic lock that is under the stapler with a small screwdriver. Sometimes the stapler assy has to partially removed (slid to the front) of the sorter to be able to see what you're doing.

Hi,
dispite the error, you should be able to enter the service mode.

Then choose COPIER, then under FUNCTION screen is CLEAR.

But you only can try to clear the error like E000, E001, E002 and E003.

Error code E522. How to fix this?


You have an issue with your staple finisher, probably need to inspect the stapler unit itself to make sure nothing is jammed in it and it moves freely. If you can't clear the error then most likely the unit is defective.

Hope this helps,

E531 error code


Did you remove the jamed staple? Try to disconnect the finisher and power up just the copier it self. Once, warmed up, try to turn it off and reconnect the finisher again and turn the power on and see if the code is gone. Did you also try to leave the staples out and see what happens. Make sure the stapler can find HP. It could be a number things... Go simple first..
