SOURCE: 980: Fatal Error

From the Service Manual:
*Service call

*Error by media
clinging to the fuser

*Media has clung to the fuser.

*Power OFF
Replace the fuser unit.

Suggestion -
Before you replace the fuser, take it out and check for a piece of stuck label, paper, etc. You can spin the fuser roller by turning the gear on the side.

SOURCE: SERVICE CALL ? 980 ? Fatal Error

I was able to reset my Fatal Error 980 code on my C5800. There is only two wires coming from that connector and not four at the bottom of the fuser. That is pin 2 and 3. 4 and 5 is still the fuse but there are no wires there, just the 2 pins. What you have to do is make a fuse by connecting pin 4 and 5 together with a piece of wire and break the wire after a few seconds after powering up. This will reset the Fuser counter back to 100%. DO NOT DO THE NVRAM RESET, THAT WILL ERASE YOUR NETWORK FEATURE. Here is the step by step of what I did.

1)Take out the Fuser and lay the two blue levers flat and remove them.

2)remove the two silver screws and separate the casing.

3) Remove the two black screws from the connector at the bottom of the fuser closest to the edge.

4)Unravel and loosen the wires so you can pull that connector out a few inches so you can get a couple of wires in there. You will see what you need to loosen to get the connector out far enough, really easy.

5)Insert a wire into each of the two holes on the back of that connector. Its pretty simple to see where they go, 2 and 3 have wires going in, 4 and 5 dont which is the fuse. After you get the wires in the 2 holes, check for continuity from the end of the wires and the terminals if you can. Make sure the wires are long enough to hang out the case. Use the thinnest wires you can find.

6)Run the wires out of the case and put the case back together and put the fuser in. Twist the two wires together and power up the machine. As soon as you here the first motor,which is about 5 seconds, pull the wires apart and BAM, you just reset the fuser back to 100% and cleared the "980" Fatal Error. You could always put a miniature fastblow fuse in instead of using the wires but that would be tedious to me.Good luck

You need to be sure that you have added the duplex unit and tray unit in the windows driver. The "device" tab will allow you to add the duplex and tray to the printer.Also there is a self-docking connector on the bottom of the printer that connects to a similar connector on the duplex unit. Check that these connectors are not damaged by lifting the printer off the duplexer and inspecting visually . You can try removing the duplex unit altogether and just install tray 2 below the printer with no duplex unit at all to see if the printer sees tray 2. If it does see it then the problem is in the duplex unit. If the printer can't see the duplexer it also wont see tray 2 which is below it. Simply re-plugging the units might fix it too so give that a try.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

X945e 980.03 service finisher comm - how to fix the issue

The 980.03 communications error on Lexmark X945e indicates a communication problem with the Finisher Controller Card. This usually requires a service call as it deals with cable connections from the finisher, from the bridge unit, the finisher controller card assembly, or the engine card assembly. But try to unplug the printer from power source, replug after 30 seconds. Plug printer straight to power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge device, power strips or uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These can cause false error messages. If problem continues, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support or your authorized service provider for assistance. Thanks.
