SOURCE: Fuser Error 50.1 Fuser is hot. What is a fuser?

The fuser bonds the ink powders onto the paper. It is usually located behind the cartridge in the paper path. There may be several reasons why this error shows. (Bad fuser or bad power supply). It looks like this:

SOURCE: Fuser Error 50.1 Fuser is hot. What is a fuser?

50.1

A low fuser temperature error has occurred, possibly due to an inadequate external or internal power supply.



this basicaly means that either the dc controller board is on its way out (expensive) or that there is a drain on the power line.
if you have it plugged into an extension lead try plugging it directly into the wall socket. if this fails also try using a different power lead (very easy to get hold of and are normaly called kettle leads)

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Fuser Error 50.1 Fuser is hot. What is a fuser?

MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS OFF AND INPLUGED BEFORE YOU START! The fuser is located in the back of the printer. You should see two blue pads where your index finger and thumb (on both hands) should pinch together then pull the fuser out. Re-seat the fuser back into its original position and wait 20 minutes before turnging Unit back on. If you do not wait 20 mins then the 50 error will appear again even if the problem is fix. Once you wait 20 minutes and it still gives you a 50 error you must replace the fuser. I have a great place to purchase fuser so let me know if you nee contact info!

Each time I try to print envelopes on the HP Color Laser Jet CP3505x printer, I am gettig a Fuser 50.2 error message


It's unfortunate Janice but your fuser cannot get hot enough to print on an envelope and the only thing you can do is buy another fuser... sounds like the fuser is still able to heat up enough for regular prints on regular paper so you may want to keep it around for a spare but companies usually sell cheaper when you have a core to return to them...

HP LASER JET 3600 HAS A 50.9 ERROR MESSAGE


However what this 50.2 is telling you is the fuser is bad. You can re-seat the fuser, most likely you will need to replace the fuser.

Based on the manual :
50.9 High fuser temperature (sub-thermistor), or pressure release mechanism problem

I found this link on-line that will show you how to replace the fuser or re-seat it.
Cick Here for Instructions

*Please note the link I'm providing to you, I have no affiliation with this web site in anyway.

Our HP Color Laser Jet Printer keeps saying 50.2


Hi ellenf971:
Here is your problem.
50.X FUSER ERROR
50.2 error - Fuser Failure (Abnormal Warmup).
Perform the following steps:
1. The connector between the fuser and the
printer is not connected properly. Reseat
the fuser. Check the connector J5013
between the fuser and the printer. Replace
it if damaged.
2. Break in the main thermistor. Turn the
printer off and remove the fuser. Measure
the resistance between the fuser
connectors J5013LA-2 (MAINTH) and
J5013LA-1 (GND). If it is not within the rage
of 330k ohms to 50k ohms (at ambient
temperature), replace the fuser.
3. Break in the fuser heater. Measure the
resistance between the fuser connectors
J5013L-2 (FSRH) and J5013L-1 (FSRN)
with the fuser removed. If it is not within the
rage of 12 ohms to 52 ohms (at ambient
temperature), replace the fuser film unit.
4. Faulty DC controller. PCB Replace the
DC controller PCB
you will have to get an HP certified technician to replace the fuser assembly.

Hope this helps

Fuser Error 50.1 Fuser is hot. What is a fuser?


I think the fuser is in your **** part. This problem can be corrected by sitting in a tub of salt water. Make sure the printer is plugged in and is powered on. Is the display lit? If it is place the printer in the tub of water you are sitting in. You sould now be able to realize nobody cares and it no longer matters
