Tektronix 560 Phaser Image unit error 32

Error 32 is most often caused by the cleaning blade clutch grease gumming up. Error 33 is most often caused by the paper feeder clutch grease also gumming up. Try cleaning the clutch and applying fresh grease.

Can denatured Alcohol be used to clean areas or parts of printer without damage to it??
What kind of grease should be used for clutch grease??

SOURCE: Tektronix Phaser 8200 DX what is

That is a failure of the drum heater.
The easy way to determine if they are working is this.
Shut the machine off, turn the lights off in the office, or room the machine is in. Turn the machine back on. On the right side of the machine, there is a slotted area where the fan it, look in there and watch for a glow in the machine. Give it a minute or two, but if you don't see that glow, those heaters are not working.
They are not impossible to change, but requires some patience and care in replacing.
They are only, well if you live in North America, 120 volt, 150 watt halogen lamps. The simply burn out a filament.
You can go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy those. Or some local service Dealer could do that for you at a decent price.
If you want to try replacing those yourself, let me know, I will send you the procedure. Provide me your E-mail address and I will tell you how to replace those.
Please, do not pay the Xerox price for a new drum heater assembly, you will be stunned what they want for that item.
It really only requires replacing the bulbs, and most likely cleaning the contacts with some emery cloth.

SOURCE: Hi I have a TEK Phaser 560 Printer that displays Error 32

There's a solenoid under the control board that actuates a stop for the cleaning blade shaft. The open cell foam the factory used to quiet the noise deteriorates with time leaving a sticky residue from the double sided tape.
Pick all the residue off and clean both the solenoid shaft and the metal plate. If you're concerned about noise, put some electrician's tape on the plate. But you might be going in for that falling off down the road. :p

Tektronix 540 error 32


Error 32 is most often caused by the cleaning blade clutch grease gumming up. Clean it completely with isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth and cotton buds. Re lubricate it with high temperature auto synthetic grease - make sure it has no mineral content.

hi,
the paper jamming problem is generic to most printer models of this capability. one way to circumvent this is to use a multimedia-tray while printing.

the reason is probably the two springs that hold down a silver metal pressure roller in the feeding unit. The tension is uneven due to old springs and the paper pulls crooked. If you follow the paper path in the fedder mechanism, you will see the roller I am referring to. The springs are at either end of this bar.
If you are good mechanically, you can replace the springs yourself, although they are a ***** to get back on (some disassembly required).
try this for details on doing it.
cheers

I have a Tektronix Phaser 540 with an error code 32 when I powered it up. Can you tell me what this means?


This is from the 560 manual hope the codes are the same. The 560 manual states : Accumulator belt cleaning blade movement error.

1. inspect the cleaning blade{located on the imaging unit,along the bottom of the green OPC belt. Is it flipped up? If you cannot flip it down, replace the imaging unit.
2. Inspect the wiring harness leading from the cleaning board to CN18 of the engine control board.
3. Replace the cleaning board.
4. Replace the engine control board.

If the above info does not match your model call :

Phaser 740 Printing Cyan only


The problem is usually caused by a faulty imaging device, specifically a bad cleaning blade.
Occasionally this error can also be caused by a sticking cleaning blade clutch.

In this case the grease that was used to lubricate the part becomes gummed up and the moving parts begin to stick and don't move freely as they are supposed to. This is especially common on these printers if they are not used heavily or have sat for long periods between uses.

Sometimes you can free up this gummed up grease by running the solenoid diagnostics several times over. You do this by turning off the printer and then powering up while holding buttons 1 and 3 on the front panel display. Button 1 is the exit button.

This will put your printer into service diagnostics mode. Page through the diagnostics menus until you come to the clutches and solenoids menu. Here you need to hit the start button, then scroll through till you see the test for the cleaning blade. Press start to run the test.

Let this test run for about an hour then hit the stop button and turn off and restart your printer.
If your printer is printing normally again then the sticky clutch is your problem and you will eventually need to remove it and clean off the old grease and relube it. I recommend a high quality lithium grease.

If your printer does not print correctly again after doing this test, then chances are that your cleaning blade on your imaging unit is bad and the imaging unit will need to be replaced. You can generally find them on ebay for a reasonable price.

This problem applies to both the phaser 560 and 740 models. The imaging units on both these printers are also interchangeable. So if you have a phaser 560 you can use an imaging device from a 740 and vice versa.

1. Check that all shipping restraits have been removed.



TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS AND HINTS:
1. Test the 1st BTR motor in diagnostics to verify proper operation. 2. Test the 1st BTR sensor in diagnostics, then run the 1st BTR motor test and recheck the 1st BTR sensor. Sensor state should alternate between L and H. The sensor is part of the accumulator belt.

PARTS:Parts are listed in the order of highest probability for repair.

Phaser 860 error code 07.003.45:116163


It is a print head tilt error.
Most likely ink is in the stainless steel pivot block at the bottom of the print head.
Also the printer could have been unplugged and the cleaning blade is stuck to the print head.
Or a cable is binding the print head movement.
