That is a temperature error with the fuser, most likely the thermistor. Really the fuser needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hi I have a Oki c6100dn Printer with fatal error message 173, How can I fix that

unfortunately, a 173 error is a fatal error which requires service, or technical skill on your part. It usually involves replacing the power supply board and fan.

Error Code 173, 192, 163

That error means low temperature on the heat roller. The thermistor (something like an electric thermostat) measures the amount of heat needed to work. Error 173 refers a lower temperature than required, while error 172 refers overheat. The complete error list will be of no use to you, since most errors will refer you to an authorized service center

Service Call: 173: Fatal Error

That is a fuser erron code. Abnormal temperature. You will need to replace the fuser. Sometimes I have sen a buildup of toner on the thermistor. If you can get to it. You can try to clean the toner off. Be careful. Very hot.

Printer Fixing Error- Replace Fixing Unit

You need to replace the fixing unit. It costs $120 and replacing it is not a trivial job. You may be better off buying a new all-in-one (not necessarily an HP). I've had good luck (so far) with Brother.
