My printer flashes alert CS 441 off on. Can you tell me what's wrong?


The SC 441 is a color pcu motor lock. One of the waste toner augers is clogged with waste toner not letting the drum turn. The only real fix is to replace the color pcu unit. If you could get the auger and drum out it might be possible to free it up, but you will probably damage the drum in the process.
