I have a Xerox XC1020 copier with a code H3. What does this mean?
The H3 code is a fuser high temperature code.. First fix is to power down and let the machine cool down..
Failing that, I couldn't find a clearance method for that particular machine but most of the machines in this category had the same control panels for years so it might work.
This is for an XC811 machine, same family, so it might work. If any of the controls mentioned are not on your machine then you need to contact the helpdesk if it still exists or a local copier repair place who should know how to clear the codes.
"To enter diagnostics: Turn on the power and within 4 seconds press the
following sequence: ‘Clear’, ‘Exposure Mode’, ‘Clear’, ‘Exposure Mode’
(Exposure Mode is the button on the far left). The console will go
To enter a code: Select the first part of the
code using the copy quantity buttons, followed by the ‘Print’ button,
then the second part of the code followed by the ‘Print’ button again.
To exit diagnostics: Press ‘Clear’ repeatedly or turn the power off.
*To clear a fuser code:(14) Enter diagnostics, select ‘14’ followed by ‘Print’… exit diagnostics.
H3 stands for high temperature at the fuser."
If it persists then you have a fuser fault that will probably need to be replaced.
And as I said, this is not specifically for your machine but the clearance codes for Xerox machines tend to be similar.
