    There is no fuser error light on this copier. The error for the fuser is an H4 or similar code which will show up in the numerical display where the number of copies is usually displayed. If you have a red light on the display then it is going to be for toner, drum, paper jam, etc. The light for the toner looks like a stack of 6 dots. The drum light looks kind of like a aa battery symbol or a small barrel.Please let us know what light is on so we can assist you further.
    Thank You for using Fixya.

The drum light can be reset via the control panel. Especially if your copies were good before the light came on. The drum unit is the cartridge that is located right next to the toner cartridge. Reset the light using the following reset procedure:
To reset the drum light on just about any Xerox XC or XD series copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My Xerox XC 1040 lights are on but it will not copy. There is a H and a 4 that comes up on the small screen. We have had several lightning storms in this area lately. We have turned it off and also...


The lightning can cause this code. The good news is that also means it is most likely a false code. Reset this code by pressing the Clear key then the Far Left key on the control panel also known as the exposure mode key. Then press clear again followed by far left again. So in short form press C, Far Left, C, Far Left. If done fast enough and properly your display should go blank. Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies and press the print button. This should reset your H4 and the machine should be restored to operational. If the code comes back within a minute or so then you have a failure in the fuser unit (part that gets hot)
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya

Tip

Xerox XC and XD series copier H3 or H4 error code reset procedure


To reset the H3 or H4 condition on just about any Xerox XC or XD series copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies.
Now press the print button.
The machine should reset and the code should be gone.
9 times out of 10 this is a false code that pops up due to power surges or noise.
If the code comes back this means you have a heater lamp or thermal fuse (more common) failure in the fusing area and will need service.
This procedure will work on all Xerox XD and XC models.

Xc 1040 xerox Red light is flashing and the copier will not


On a XC 1040 machine either there is a jam on the fuser, the fuser switch fell out of place, or the sensor swich arm fell off the registration sensor.
Since we cannot see the machine we might understand what is taking place.
If the machine is turned off and back on and there is no red light, then the machine must be able to attempt to make a copy. If a copy does not come out, then there is problely some worn feed rolls.
If when the machine is turned on and there is a red light then th There can be some bad paper feed cluthes as well.There might be a paper stuck at either fuser assemly or paper feed roller areas.
Provide more description about the visuals on the machine.
Good luck.

XC-830 copier Displays fault code H-3


Give this a try , if it continues you will have to replace the fuser.

Performing a Fault Reset 14 will reset your copier and will help to clear error codes.
  1. Turn the power off.
  2. Locate the Clear Button, which is grey in color, in the upper right corner above the green Start Button.
  3. Locate the Auto Button the lower left corner of the Control Panel.
  4. Turn the power back on.
  5. Press the buttons in the following sequence, releasing each button after each time you press it: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto]. Every light on the Control Panel should go out, and the error code should clear.
  6. If the error code has not cleared, wait a few seconds then repeat Steps 1 through 5.
  7. Program the copier as if you were going to make 14 copies.
  8. Press the green [Start] button to store the reset code. The copier will return to the ready position.
  9. Run a test copy

Xerox Doc12 10-386 error code


That is a fuser overheat. Make sure that the paper path module is securely locked into place.
Look for a piece of paper wrapted in the fuser.
Or replace the fuser itself.
