Open heat error on Xerox Workcentre PE120

I have an "open heat error" on my printer, and unplugging it and plugging it back in after a few minutes doesn't fix it. Doesn't that mean I need to replace the fuser? Is that something I can do myself (there's not a Xerox service center near here)? What does the part cost/where can I get it? Is it worth fixing, or should I just replace it for $200? Thanks--

SOURCE: Engine Fuser Low Heat Error

there is a 2 wire device (thermistor) that rests against the fuser roller to measure the temperauture. if the fuser is getting quite hot, suspect the thermistor to be either dirty (remove and clean it with alcohol) or defective. if fuser not getting hot, then suspect burned out fuser heater (look inside fuser roller for a long light bulb).

SOURCE: Ricoh FX16 open heat error

the Open Heat error indicates that the sensing circuitry for the fuser has detected that the fuser is not heating up. This can occur because either the sensing circuitry isn't detecting correctly or the fuser actually isn't heating up. Probably the latter in most cases.
How to fixya? Probably install a new fuser and you'll be fixed. Want to be sure before you spend $$ ?? Pull the fuser out. You will see a wiring hookup with two heavy wires that supply 110V to the heating lapm. Connect an ohm meter across the two wires that are on the FUSER. A good fuser will read around (0) ohms - complete circuit. A fuser with a bad lamp or a bad thermostat will read infinite resistance (open circuit).

The thermostat is probably available as a separate item. It's probably about $15 from several online sources. I believe you will need a JC47-00013A. I could be wrong. You'll need to do some research if you find that to be the problem.

Reads open heat error


This sounds like a problem with the fuser or possibly the fuser lamp. You can try turning the printer off for about ten minutes to cool the machine off and then turn back on. If that doesn't work you would need a new fuser unit. The fuser is located behind the door on right side of the machine. There are four screws used to hold the fuser in place. Good Luck, I hope this helps.

Error code PCL6 incomplete session by time out


That is normally caused by firmware corruption. You can go to Xerox.com, click on support and drivers, then in the search box enter pe120, then go to drivers and downloads and download the newest machine firmware . There are directions on how to install the firmware , make sure you follow them step by step. It's pretty easy and should resolve your problem.

Workcentre pe 120i memory full


in spec. say's so:
your workcentre Pe120 have only 32 Mb memory.
fax function is equipped with a 4 Mb standard memory.
In spec. shows a 4mb memory is just enough for 320 pages of fax!!!

i think your problem is given from the 32 mb of memory of workcentre pe120, not from fax memory, because the faxes received or delayed is compressed with a very strong altgorithm, and these files is very small.

FAX ERROR MESSAGE


It sounds like the fuser rollers are not at the proper temperature to work.

They should be inspected by a technician.
