Error 50 means that you need a new fuser.

Direct from the HP manual
50 error/50 service(fuser malfunction)

all printers
1. temporary erros - turn off for 20 minutes to clear tempory 50 error.
2.Low/unstable power (e.g. brownout)

4,plus printers

1. defective fuser or power supply
2. temporary error (see above)


my thoughts
I think you get this 1 if the fuser gets to hot or 2 if the fuser does not reach temperature within a specifed time period.

It seems you have a fuser problem of some type.

I would go with joed's comment and leave the printer off for a while. That usually works for me and it's easy to do.
