How to reset fuser on my brother HL1870?


You can do whats called a Parts Life Reset Function.

This function is used by service specialists only when changing the periodic replacements parts to clear the life counter. To operate this function, press the "Go" and "+" switches together until the menu "RESET PARTS LIFE" appears on the LCD display. Select the required item "part name", using the "+/-" switches, then press the "Set" switch.

Your fuser error should now disappear.

Hope this helps!!!

How do I clean my Brother HL-5170 printer? It is

You may need a new drum, refilled and generic drums don't get a new cleaning blade and toner goes everywhere, some generic toners are not good as well. Also with age the fuser starts letting toner stick and transfer to your prints. As far as cleaning, you can take the supplies out and blow out the interior, may help for a while.

Brother 1250. Message on screen shows - fuser malfunction. Alarm light flashes, no lights,followed by all lights

The Fuser is the part inside which gets hot. It will usually be a job for an engineer to replace, however it should try to reset by itself after 10 minutes with the power left on.
If not, switch off, hold down the button and switch on whilst holding the button. This will also reset, but if problem remains the Fuser unit will have to be replaced.
