Error Codes

Dissecting the New Laser Jet Event Logs

I will  be discussing only the paper path  jam events or errors dealing with the Base Unit  M602 Printer’s Paper Path.  The sensors and their locations haven’t changed,  just the the way the they are read from the event log.  The fuser delivery sensor name has changed for the 4250 as you will see.  I reference the old errors  and note similarities which helps me and I hope you to understand their meaning.

Older Codes on Previous Models for Comparison
Laser Jet 4250 and P4515 Series

13.01 – A 13.01.00 error message indicates that the media did not arrive at the pre-feed sensor (PS102) within the specified time.
13.02 – A 13.02.00 error message indicates that the media did not pass the top-of-page sensor (PS103) within the specified time.
13.03 – A 13.03.00 error message indicates that the media did not arrive at the top-of-page sensor (PS103) within the specified time.
13.05 – A 13.05.00 error message indicates that the media did not arrive at the fuser delivery sensor (PS108)(PS700) within the specified time.
13.06 – A 13.06 error message indicates that the media did not pass the fuser delivery sensor (PS108) (PS700) within the specified time.
13.20 – A 13.20.00 error message indicates that the printer power was turned on or that the printer attempted to initialize while the Pre-feed sensor (PS102), Top-of-page sensor (PS103) or the Fuser delivery sensor (PS700) was detecting media.


How to Read the New Event Codes
What do all these numbers and letters Mean?

There are three sets of two digits that all have a Designation.
〈〈.〈〈.〈〈

The first set of two digit codes
“13” = Generic Jam.

The second set of two digits codes are Sensor Locations.
A2 = Pre-feed sensor (PS102)
B2 = Top-of-page sensor (PS103)
B9 = Fuser delivery sensor (PS700)

The third set of two digit codes are …
The first digit is whether it was Late to the sensor or if it stopped at the Sensor.
A = Stopped
D = Late
The second digit is the source tray,
Tray 1, 2, 3, 4


Quick Reference Event Code List for Paper Jams on the HP LJ-M602
Note:  This is not a complete list.  It is solely for trouble -shooting paper path Jams.  Also, I’ve included the old event codes to help me grasp whats going on.

13.A2.D2 – The media did not arrive at the pre-feed sensor (PS102) within the specified time.  Source Tray 2  13.01
13.A3.D3 – The media did not arrive at the pre-feed sensor (PS1603) within the specified time.  Source Tray 3  13.01


13.B2.A2 – Stopped at Registration Jam, Top-of-page sensor (PS103),
From Tray 2  13.02

13.B2.A3 – Stopped at Registration Jam, Top-of-page sensor (PS103)
From Tray 3  13.02

13.B2.D2 – Late to Registration Jam, Top-of-page sensor (PS103)
From Tray 2 
13.03
13.B2.A3 – Stopped at Registration Jam, Top-of-page sensor (PS103)
From Tray 3  13.02
13.B2.D3 – Late to Registration Jam, Top-of-page sensor (PS103)
From Tray 3  13.03


13.B9.A2 –Stopped at Fuser Jam, Fuser delivery sensor (PS700)
From Tray 2  13.06

13.B9.A3 – Stopped at Fuser Jam, Fuser delivery sensor (PS700)
From Tray 2  13.06

13.B9.D2 -Late to Fuser Jam, Fuser delivery sensor (PS700)
From Tray 2  13.05

13.B9.D3 -Late to Fuser Jam, Fuser delivery sensor (PS700)
From Tray 3  13.05


13.A2.FF -Power on Jam, pre-feed sensor (PS10213.20
13.B2.FF –Power on Jam, top-of-page sensor (PS103)  13.20
13.B9.FF
– Power on Jam, Fuser delivery sensor (PS70013.20

 

This list and designations will change as I update it.  Mistakes are bound to happen but it’s a start.  I’ll be working on it and make changes when I can.  email me at izzykilman@gmail.com if you have any good info.
