Easy laser printer parts question
Posted on 2007-03-26
Easy question for somebody.
I have a Ricoh Aficio CL3000 printer.....I've been getting this error code SC 554 for some time......usually I just power off and on and It works the rest of the day. In the morning, first print fails......power off and on......and I'm good to go for the rest of the day. I looked up the error code on Ricoh's website and it is classified as "the heating roller is not getting hot enough". Which makes sense. So I call them up and they tell me that can also mean it has a bad fuser unit. So I tell him I recently replaced that part (less then a year ago).....should be still good. He didn't have any more ideas so I'm going to have to call someone out to service it. Ok, so my questions are:
Is the heat roller part of the fuser unit?
If yes, Isn't possible I just have a bad fuser unit? and replacing it might just make the problem go away?
If no, is a heat roller something I could buy and replace myself?
Thanx in advance for the help,
