The error messages or numerical combos that appear on your printer’s LED display are known as printer error codes. They serve as educational instruments to highlight issues with system performance.
In a laserjet printer, there is a section that functions to heat the toner powder that sticks to the print media (paper) which is the result of printer processing according to the input received by the printer (eg text or images). It is with this section that the powder that has not yet adhered is heated and pressed so that the toner adheres perfectly.
The heating component is an element wrapped in a fuser film. If this heating part is damaged, the printer will have an error. 50.2 fuser error usually occurs in the heating part, especially the heating element, which may break.
The symptoms of damage that occurs are as follows:
- When turned on, the printer will load first as usual, then before standby, a warning error 50.2 fuser error will appear.
