Error 59.99 on Color LJ 3500

Brand new color LJ3500 out of the box. Followed all unpacking and set-up instructions but continually get Error 59.99, even after repeatedly turning on and off.

I am getting the same error on a LJ 3700. Did you ever manage to resolve this, and if so, what fixed it.

Thanks

Re: Error 59.99 on Color LJ 3500

Thanks, but I was asking whether anyone has actually fixed this and what they did to fix it. I can read a manual just fine! But I would rather hear some real world experience when the book list so many possible solutions.

So, has anyone actually repaired this, and what part was the problem?

Thanks

Re: Error 59.99 on Color LJ 3500

I have finally fixed a 59.99. LJ2840 that came to me with a blown Power Supply. I changed the PS and then got the 59.99 secondary transfer (t2)clutch error. When i was going back to check all my connections to the PS I noticed that cap goo was sprayed onto the HVPS and that a resistor and diode were blown. I changed the HVPS and no more 59.99 error.

I know that this might not relate to the 3500/3700. I have a 3500 and a 3700 that show the 59.99 error. On one i have changed all motors/gears and the feed/pu assembly. I will get a chance to change the HVPS on them in a few days. I will post if that works on the 3500/3700.

Re: Error 59.99 on Color LJ 3500

I am geting the same error message (59.99), but don't know which one of the 4 problems listed above it is from. Can someone send a link to to a troubleshooting guide/PDF where I can look this up and order the correct replacement part or parts? Or can this be done through the control panel? Many thanks!

Re: Error 59.99 on Color LJ 3500

only at start up
sometimes restarting the printer is enough to bypass the problem
