Question about Lexmark C510n Laser Printer

Lexmark C500 printer SVC LL ERROR, SVC L1 ERROR

Printer displays SVC L1 ERROR after maintenance exercise, and after further maintenance, the error code says "SVC LL ERROR"



Hi Technicians,
My Lexmark C500 laser printer recently experienced an improper maintenance procedure regarding some spilled toner inside of the equipment. The printer was functioning fine however the pic roller wasn't taking the paper so we decided to give the printer a complete maintenance clean up. Upon disassembly we discovered waste toner blocking the return hose feed that leads out into the toner waste bottle. Rather than using a special vacuum for toner, we used a blower and a large cloud of toner was ejected from the waste line and inside the compartment, I identified this as the mistake. Dangerous and messy. The parts were reassembled according to specification, the printer was turned on and after the test cycle and the warmup, the printer stops and displays an error "SVC L1 ERROR". So the C500 was torn apart again for closer inspection and we discovered many sensors and electrical contacts were invaded by the wasted toner. We cleaned up all of these dirty sensors and cable connection points throughly. After reassembly, the printer shows a new code "SVC LL ERROR".

I checked the motor of the rotational mirror inside the laser assembly and it is functioning. the lenses were cleaned and free of the toner dust.

Please help with a procedure recommendation, we need to keep this printer around a few more months because we just stocked it up with 4 new toner cartridges and it would be a sad wasted to toss out into the garbage heap of our wonderful planet.

Thanks in Advance,
The S.C. Team

    I've used a digital multimeter to test the cable interlink between the driver board and the laser imaging module. So there is not a broken link there. Still the error SVC LL ERROR is occuring. The printer will clear the error and try to warm up again if I open and close the doors, but never passes the warm up phase

As i'm sure you already know the error means - Laser power is lower than the output limit.
It's probably due to a bad contact on the engine board. If you would like the service manual it can be downloaded from the following link free of charge http://www.eserviceinfo.com/equipment_mfg/Lexmark_22.html any problems come back to me.

    If the cable is ok the problem is either the engine board or the laser assembly, because you were already gettting the svc l1 error, i would go for a replacement printhead (laser/ scanner assembly) first

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
