Do-It-Yourselfer activities are prompted by economic motives,product availability and the absence of experts in your area. Just the sheer rush of doing it yourself is reason enough! More and more people are just doing it themselves in our world. Mainly I’m talking about “Home Repair”, but what about office equipment? Not so much. Why do you think that is? Take printers for example. I believe its lack of information and tools needed to do the job correctly. I would like to invite you to use our tools, this resource for all of your Do-It-Yourself Printer Repairs! Did I mention it’s all free? DIY isn’t just for home improvement anymore!

Fuser

Symptoms of a Bad Fuser

What is a Fuser Assembly?                                fuser rollers
The fuser assembly is the part in a Copier, Laser printer or Laser Fax Machine that fuses the toner to the paper.  Toner is made of crushed plastic and carbon black for color.  Once the image is transferred to the paper you need to fuse (melt) it into the paper.  If you have ever stopped the paper before it goes through the fuser you would find that the toner will come right off.  It needs to be fused.  There are two important steps to fusing and those are…

  1. Heat;  Heat is applied to a teflon or non-stick upper roller or sleeve/film with halogen lamps or a heater element.
  2. Pressure;  Pressure is used for fusing toner to the paper with a pressure or lower roller.  They use heavy springs on the front and rear side that press the lower roller to the upper roller or film to aid in fusing.

Ghosting, double images, streaking, black lines  and smudges; also Jamming are Symptoms of a Bad Fuser
These marks are often on the top and bottom of the pages.  These symptoms are caused from the teflon material on the upper roller or film being worn off, ripped or scored.  The solution is to replace the fuser as an assembly or replace the worn roller or film parts.

Error code;  If a problem exists indicating a fuser problem it will stop the machine from operating and give an error code.  The codes are all different for each make and model.  There are three major items that go bad on a fuser assembly that would give an error code.

  1. The lamp or the heater element is bad
  2. The thermal fuse is bad.
  3. The thermistor is bad.  (temperature sensing device)

There are a few other problems you may encounter with a fuser such as; Broken gears, bad lower roller, jamming (this is most likely a bad roller)

Wrinkling/Wrinkles in the Paper
This can be caused by a dirty fuser entrance guide.  If the toner builds up in a certain area on the entrance guide it will cause the paper to skew or go into the rollers at a bad angle.  This can also cause jamming.  The lower roller can also cause wrinkling in the paper when the rubber that is attached to the metal roller inside becomes separated.

Separator Fingers; These scrape or separate the paper off of the roller because the paper tends to stick to the upper roller and needs help to seperate it off of the roller.  (that  is why they use a Teflon material on the upper roller/fim) These scrapers build up with toner, wear down and break causing jamming.  Accordion jams are one of the types of  jams you would get in the fuser.  It folds up the paper in an accordion because the paper can’t get past the fuser.

59.40, 59.50 and 59.60 errors on the HP LaserJet P4515 printer

LaserJet P4010 and P4510 Series Printers
P4515
Hewlett Packard LaserJet P4014, P4015 and P4515 Printers
59.40, 59.50 and 59.60 Error “Theory”

This article is an attempt to understand the cause and theory behind the 59.40, 59.50 and 59.60 errors in the LaserJet P4010 and P4510 Series printers, and the other problems they cause.  Simply put, there is an issue of hesitation or drag in the rotation of the drum drive motor (M102).

The following information comes from the Hewlett Packard LaserJet P4010 and P4510 Series, Service Manual, Page 287 in “Control-panel messages

Control panel message                    Description                           

59.XY ERROR                              A temporary printing error occurred.

For help press? Alternates with 59.XY ERROR, to continue turn off then on.

Recommended action
 Inspect the DC controller PCA and verify that the following connectors are firmly seated.

◦ Drum motor (M102) to connector J87

◦ Feed motor (M101) to connector J91

◦ Fusing motor (M299) to connector J89

NOTE:
There is a cable between the drum motor and the DC controller. Both Ends of the cable need to be firmly seated.
If the error persists, from the DIAGNOSTICS menu, run the component tests for each motor to verify that they are  operating. If any of the motors is not operating, replace the motor.

What does the XY mean after the 59?
X is telling you which motor is having the problem.
Y tells you which color it is.  0 = Black
(M102) Drum Drive Motor is a 24 DC volt brushless motor P/N – RL1-1659


What is the problem?
More than likely you will encounter this error with a refurbished toner cartridge. The problem is that the drum blade that cleans the photoconductor is either…

  1. Defective
  2. Does not have the proper drum (photoconductor) lubrication.

The toner cartridge comes in two different versions.
CC364X Black, High Capacity Toner Cartridge       Yield 24,000 pages Approximate
CC364A Black, Standard Toner Cartridge               Yield 10,000 pages Approximate

Blade
Diagram of how the drum blade interacts with the photoconductor

The solution to all of this is just to replace the toner cartridge.  So why did I spend so  much time on this issue?  In addition to replacing the cartridge it can also damage the drive gears.  That would mean an expensive repair caused by a incorrectly refurbished toner cartridge.  When these gears strip you will hear a high pitched whinning sound and get paper jams under the toner cartridge because the drum assists the paper as it goes through the machine.

The Repair
You will need to replace the drum drive assembly P/N RC2‑2484 and also the drum drive motor P/N RL1-1659
Stripped Drum Motor Gear

Stripped Gear on Drum Drive Assembly

Here is a Video on replacing the Drum Drive Motor and Assembly.

Drum Blades
The drum blades are normally made of urethane.  A strong rubber type of material.  You can liken a drum blade to a windshield wiper.  And just like your wipers they start to streak when they are worn.  You will also get drum blade chatter if not properly lubricated.  If you do not have the proper lubrication it can also flip and damage the drum.  On this type of photoconductor the lubrication most widely used would be Kynar Powder.  Using toner also is acceptable but builders like the Kynar because its not as messy and the residual will remain longer, thus preventing drum blade problems.  This prevents the blade from dragging or locking up or even flipping.  I made some quick videos of manually turning the drum on a defective cartridge after a 59 error and one of a newly opened cartridge and the difference is amazing.  It was definitely much more difficult to turn compared to the new cartridge.


Here is the Defective Cartridge with the 59 error

Here is the Good Cartridge for Comparison

  

What the Drum Drive Motor does.
The drum drive motor drives the components inside of the toner cartridge.  The following are some of the components that are being driven by the drum drive motor.

*Photoconductor
*Developer or Magnetic roller
*Primary charge roller (PCR)
*Various drive gears

The idea behind purchasing refurbished toner cartridges is saving money, well maybe even the recycling aspect but when they start causing damage to the printer you may want to rethink using them in this model.

When installing new drive gears, I’m recommending using Swing Plate RC2-2432-M601 (M601) instead of the RC2-2432 (P4515) In P4515, P4015 Series Printers. The main gear on the M601 that butts up against the fuser drive gear is” Helical” but on the P4515 the Fuser drive is a standard “Spur” Gear.

Don’t be worried because it will mesh fine with the P4515 Fuser Gear. The Swing Plates RC2-2432 (P4515) I was installing had a very short life. I have some of these printers that print 40K per Month and I was changing them constantly it seemed.

Common problem with P4515 Style replacement Gears

Directions on replacing the fuser drive gears (Swing Plate) on the HP Laser Jet P4515 Printer

The drive gear noise once installed is quiet and smooth. We know that the P4515 printer series generates a lot of noise. I am getting more than 3 times the life out of them now using the M601 style. I just changed one in a P4515 and it had 350K on it. The reason why I changed that one was because it was noisy and that’s the only reason. Very little wear. When I used the Standard swing plate it would strip at approximately 40 -50K and it would go down or be very noisy. I now have this type installed in all of my high volume areas and it has improved call back and call generation quite a bit.

Hewlett Packard Laser Jet 4200, Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4240, Hewlett Packard P4014, P4015, P4515 series printers, Paper Jams

Testing Paper Feed Solenoids.

Many people who repair their own HP printers change the feed rollers and continue getting jams and decide to call it quits at that point.  They cant understand why it’s still jamming.   The problem more than likely is the Paper Feed Solenoids.  Look in the event log.  You will see 13.98, 13.02, 13.03 errors if the solenoids are having issues.

It’s a hassle to have to pull all the covers off just to see if the paper feed solenoid needs to be replaced.  Here’s a way to test them so you don’t have to.  This test applies to  Hewlett Packard Laser Jets 4200, 4300, 4240, 4250, 4350, P4014,  P4015,  P4515 and many others.

Go into “Diagnostics” and “Paper Path” Test Mode.
Set it for 10 prints, single sided and select the tray that you would like to test.
Pay close attention  to the sound, speed and rhythm of the machines operation.
If the solenoid is good you will hear the same rhythm and operation through out the test.  But,  if there is an issue with the solenoid you will notice a pause.   It will “hiccup” and pause just for a moment, then continue.  If it is really bad, it may end up jamming or become obvious that the foam is totally destroyed.
You will become acquainted with this and be able to quickly tell if there is a problem.  If you don’t do it that often you may have to pull the solenoids off to test them.  It’s very subtle but if you do it enough you’ll be able to spot it right off.

Look at the following Video below. I am testing tray 2 and tray 3 on a Hewlett Packard Laser Jet 4250.  First is tray 2 with no problem ( Just Changed it) and next is tray 3 with an obvious problem with the solenoid.

Remove the Solenoid and do a visual inspection.

See Video Below

Replaced the bad solenoid with a “New Solenoid  RK2-0269”.

3 Must Do Repairs on HP Laser Printers

These 3 little items can cause huge problems.  They are the cause of jamming, registration skew,  13.98, 13.02, 13.03, 13.05, 13.06 error codes and they will also cause other issues that will leave you scratching your head.  If, while your doing a maintenance or general cleaning, do yourself a favor and add this to your list of preventative maintenance.

#1.) Inspect the Paper Full Sensor Flags Located on the Delivery Assembly.

Test the levers by pushing down on the levers and pull back on them.  You’ll will feel it sticking if the foam is deteriorated.
See video below.

Removing foam.
Remove the Top Cover.
Turn the cover upside down and remove 2 screws and the grounding plate.
If the foam has become deteriorated, scrape the old foam off of the Paper Full sensor flag assembly, and remove leftover foam and glue with alcohol.
There are two locations on the assembly for you to remove foam from.
See pictures below.

NOTE: It is not necessary to reinstall new foam.

#2.) Inspect Registration Shutter on the Registration Assembly.

Remove the toner cartridge and pull/push on the Registration Shutter so that it is all the way open and see if it is sticking.
See pictures/video below.
If the foam has become deteriorated simply remove it by scraping it off with a knife and then remove leftover foam and glue with alcohol.
NOTE: It is not necessary to reinstall new foam.
