Question about Xerox Phaser 7700 Laser Printer
I have a Xerox Phaser 7700 that has been working
wonderfully for the past 5 years. Now, when it sits idle, it will not
go past the "warming up" stage. I've tried hitting "OK," and the other
obvious things (such as sending it a print job to awaken it), but it
does not react unless I restart it. Then it works fine until it sits
idle again—at which point it will not react without restarting.
Has anyone ever encountered this problem? Thanks
The fuser is a good place to start. If it is not hot you could try another fuser. You'll feel the heat well before you actually touch the fuser if it is working.
Do not swap fusers with another printer. These fusers have a life setting and when they are put into another printer it messes it up, leaving you with a fuser registering less than 10% life left.
An additional possibility is the the fuser may not be getting the power it needs. There are two boards that control power distribution if I remember correctly, T1 and T3, but I am not entirely sure which one handles power going to the fuser. In this case it would probably be best to get a repairman in. The 7700 is not particularly easy to work on, depending on the issue, but an experienced technician with a repair manual should be able to handle it easily.

If it will not go past warming up it is not warming up the fuser temp never gets to where it needs to for you to print That is why it doesn't come to a ready to print status.
