This fixing unit fault message is caused by a malfunction of the regulation of the fixing unit temperature. If the fixing unit heater is inoperative when the power is turned on, the 02 WARMING UP message is displayed for two minutes before the 50 SERVICE message is displayed. See Section 1.4.5 for additional information about the fixing unit temperature control.Troubleshooting Use the following procedure to correct the fixing unit temperature problem:
1. If the error occurs at power-up, the malfunction might be corrected but
you may not have allowed a full 10 minutes of power-off time for the
error to clear.
2. Inspect or swap the fixing unit. Make sure the fixing unit connectors are
undamaged and the pins align correctly with the sockets. If you find any
damage, replace the fixing unit.
3. Swap the ac inlet assembly.
4. Swap the dc control board.
