Laser Printer Error


Computer Genius
Hello all, it's not often I have a problem...but it's just one of those days...

My laser printer (Lexmark 4039 10R) stopped working a few weeks ago, and always gives me this error:

931 Service Error
Printhead Error
I found this article

however, I can't do numbers 1 and 2 because i can't access the menus because of the error.

So I'm at number 3...what does a printhead look like? Where should I look?


Look at the cartridge cradle and there should possibly be a small circuit chip that the cartridge makes contact with.
If you can take the whole assembly out with your type of printer , having removed the ink cartridge, do so.
If its possible, you can try to clean this and the underneath path manually with isopropol alcohol used for cleaning cds etc.
A similar sort of thing used to happen with old Cannon printers .

there are no ink cartridges in laser's toner.

and i've looked high and low, EVERYWHERE for gold contacts...they are not in plain sight, even with the toner removed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
