Loud noise then "tranfer belt error" on the screen. How do I fix this? Manual instructions said to turn off for 10 seconds & then turn back on; & if there is sitll a problem, to call repair. Can I fix this myself?
I called Samsung because my printer did the same thing. Try a hard reset, if that doesn't work you have to replace the transfer belt. hit Menu then # then 193 Black Start....you have to do this all in about 3 seconds. It will come up and say Select Country (USA) hit OK and then it is suppose to reset it. If it doesn't work the transfer belt has to be replaced. If you are under warranty they will send you this for FREE.....
I am out of warranty and have to pay $150 to get one.
Just bought a refurbished unit and had the same problem"paper jam" "transfer belt error" what I did was take out the imaging unit the big one and the smaller one in the back and just gave them a minor dust cleaning of the toner ink that accumalates on the Imaging unit (there was no paper found to have been jammed) I also took out the toners and put them back in ,just in case they were not in properly.I put everything back turned on the printer and it's running great.

The C2770 error is a transfer belt shift error. On the new Alphard series, the transfer belt has a mechanism to center the transfer belt, in case it starts to walk off one side of the pulleys. And it works great until you install the AK-730 bridge unit.
On instruction 19. they tell you to install the front left stay with the 20mm long black screws. If you follow that instruction the bottom screw will press against the transfer belt cleaning unit, preventing it from self-adjusting, and forcing the belt gradually off one side. The fix is laughably simple. Install 12mm long screws for the front left stay.
This was discovered in class. You know how after 10 or 20 disassemblies the test machines end up with all the wrong screws in the wrong places? The 30mm long screws for the latching bracket caused an immediate code C2770. With the 20mm long screws it takes about 15K prints to walk off it's pulleys, but same affect.
981 service switch error refers to BUD(belt up/down) clutch if the
error essage is hard. it could be possible that someone could have
playes with white CAM below the tranfer belt(behind the waste toner
box) if you suspect that the cam was manually rotated, then you are in
a big FIX. if not then it could be just a problem with the cam being
worn out. in this scenario you cannot remove or reset the transfer belt
as you normally do it. there is a special procedure to remove the
transfer belt. try the following.
remove the waste toner box.,
fool the front door of the printer so that you can watch the transfer
belt moving up/down. while you have the fron door open, Turn off the
printer, press and hold the go and return buttons on the printer , keep
watching the shaft that show the position of the belt, once it moves,
be fast enough to turn off the printer. If you were successful in this
procedure , you can remove the belt from the printer without any
problem. Make sure not to touch the white cam shaft. visually examine
the internal mechanism of the shaft, if it is wornout replace it.
the white cam was turned manually then you might have to replace the
BUD clutch.. which is the most difficult process in this
machine....Wish you all the best.
It sounds like you have a bearing failing, either in the front roller or the motor. If it is the front roller it will be a dull "Clicking" noise, if its the drive motor it will be a growl noise. The growl will be so loud at top speed you wont be able to even talk over the noise. Remove the motor hood and this will help you determine the culprit.
From the service manual: SC403: Transfer belt position sensor error
-Definition- The transfer belt position sensor does not activate even if the transfer belt clutch has rotated once.
- Possible causes - • Main motor/drive malfunction • Transfer belt position sensor defective • Poor transfer belt position sensor connection
According to the manual, provided there isn't a major problem with the machine, you can reset the service code by turning off the MAIN POWER switch for a 10-seconds and then turning it back on. This should reset the code provided the problem doesn't reoccur. NOTE: The main power switch is a rocker switch on the front or left side of the machine, not a push-button switch up on the control panel.
Probably not a big help, but hopefully at least a little. I can't offer you much better advice, as I don't work on machines of this age, sorry.
Turn the transfer belt by hand to check for any binding or noises. It could also be the fuser rollers causing the noise due to bad bearings since it sits above the transfer belt when it it closed into the machine.
Do you know how to remove the transfer belt to check?
I saw this posted somewhere on the internet and it worked for me.
Take out the transfer unit and look at the bottom. One side has visible wires. Open the side panel on that side. Follow the 3 wires to a C shaped sensor held in with a screw. Remove the sensor and blow canned air in the slots on the inside of the C. Put it all back together and hope for the best.
