    Is it worth replacing the LSU or should we get a new printer, the unit is 7 years old?

Welcome to Fixya

The LSU is the Laser Scanning Unit or "printhead". There is a mirror in there that spins really fast, if the mirror spins too slowly (bad motor, low voltage) it gives an error. Sounds like you would need a replacement LSU.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    The laser scanning will cost 20 to 30 dollars. I leave you the decision if you still want to have the printer repaired. Of course, brand new printer is still the best option since you already have a 7 year old machine and we will never know what will happen next.

Do a hard reset of printer to erase all memories. Then also uninstall and reinstall the driver and see what happens. Also make sure that you are using the correct driver for your OS

LSU erorr appear in display screen


LSU refers to the long strip of glass / encoder strip inside the top of the cartridge compartment. It could be dirty or dislodged.

Power off the printer
Open the front cover
Lightly pull out the cartridge and keep it flat
Gently swab the LSU. If part of the LSU is hanging, gently put it back in place and reconnect. Be careful not to touch anything else.
Note: If you are unable to reconnect the LSU, the printer will need service.
Put the cartridge back (again, leave it flat).
Close the front cover.
Power the printer back on.

Hope this helps.

LSU ERROR MESSAGE ON little screen when photocopying


The LSU error stands for Laser Scanner Unit error. The probable cause/s:

The Polygon motor in the LSU does not rotate.
The LSU’s laser beam is functioning properly.

What you can do:

Try to unplug the machine for a couple of minutes or maybe a little longer and then plug everything back in. Power on and then test.

Dell 1600N Multifunction printer problem.


Fuser issues - if problem is reoccuring then you are looking at more expense, are all vents free of obstructions (folders leaning on machine sides/rear) is machine being flogged, is power supply consistent, maybe even fuser bought was faulty, many options, try doing a warranty claim on fuser or replace again, even better get another printer, welcome to our throw away world!
