Unusual 50 error in P3015

The 50.x error – no matter what “x” is – is always fuser-related, and is usually fixed by replacing the fuser. However, there have been several cases in which a P3015 printer had a 50.3 error that was caused by a stuck swing gear in the fuser drive area (see figure). Our theory is that when this gear is stuck, the fuser overheats because the film isn’t turning. This gear and arm are not available, but it is usually possible to manipulate the gear and unstick it. A drop of oil on the pivot of the swing arm may also help.
