We installed a new fuser into a Brother HL4200CN (Fuser FP-12CL) and it came up with "ID Error for Fuser" Is this a defective fuser or were we suppose to reset a code somehow? Thanks

This message appears when the printer cannot recognize the fuser - probably because you haven't reseted the counter. Make sure it's properly installed. If it is then you will need to perform the reset procedure
1. Press Additional Functions Key
2. Press # key
3. Arrow to number 7, Printer and press Set
4. Arrow to number 4, Printer Re-Set and press Set.
5. Press Yes, re-set printer (hit minus key - back arrow).
6. Unplug the machine and plug it back in.

Brother 1250. Message on screen shows - fuser malfunction. Alarm light flashes, no lights,followed by all lights

The Fuser is the part inside which gets hot. It will usually be a job for an engineer to replace, however it should try to reset by itself after 10 minutes with the power left on.
If not, switch off, hold down the button and switch on whilst holding the button. This will also reset, but if problem remains the Fuser unit will have to be replaced.
