Re: hp 4200 50.2 Error Fuser Error

Ross,

One of those parts can cause this error. It has happened however that a good fuser can be taken out by a bad dc controller and althought rare in my opinion it does happen. The fuser can be tested if you have a good multimeter. Have also read where there have been manufacturing problems with earlier fusers (not sure of the validity of this). Might check with your supplier.

Here are a couple of threads:

Re: hp 4200 50.2 Error Fuser Error

Ross,
Another thing to think about, are you using the correct fuser. I did the same thing - replaced the fuser 3x - on a 4250 before realizing that although the fuser physically fits, it is not compatible with the 4200 fuser and I was getting 50.2 errors as well. The correct part number for the 4200 is RM1-0013.

Re: hp 4200 50.2 Error Fuser Error

I have tried a different wall circuit and the 3 fusers are RM1-0013 fusers. I have also tried to turn off power saver. each time I can turn on the printer and print, but if I let it sit I get the 50.2 error. It makes no sense.

It is not heating up to OP Temp. Points to the Thermister in the Fuser. I don't know.

Re: hp 4200 50.2 Error Fuser Error

Rather than replacing board after board, determine if the fuser(s) are DOA by testing with a multimeter if you have one. See the attachment for points and reference points. If it ohms out OK then the connector between the fuser and printer may be bad, the p/s is bad (this could possibly cause the fuser to go bad), or the dc controller is bad.
