HP 5L Fuser error


I got an older HP 5L which doesn't print at all. According to the great Light Codes Page it has an "Fuser Error".

Unfortunately I can't find anything more about this on the page or here in the forum.

So please could anyone tell me anything more specific about this error. Am I able to fix this by myself (porhaps with a kit) or do I have to take the printer to a service? And if I have to go to a service what will it cost approximately.

Thanks for your help


I shot a fuser replacement video recently, I could bundle it with the heating element. I'll let you know on pricing if you're interested.

Hi Moe,

thanks for your reply. Please let me know what the price is for the video
and heating element. Don't I need a new (rebuild) fuser normally? I
found offers for this on other sites so I wonder if it's normally onty
the heating element.

But please notice that I'm from Germany. I don't have problems
watching NTSC video and I hope you do deliver outside of
the USA.

That model does not have a fuser assembly. The parts are all part of the printer. There is no such thing as a rebuilt one. We do a lot of shipping to Germany, but we don't stock 220V fusers. I have to special order them. I'm sending a 5P heating element out tomorrow to Australia. The part should be around $80 US + shipping.
