Brother Brother Compactronic I

Brother HL-2460 Error E50 Service call

I have a brother HL-2460 display above message immediately upon power up, (Amber light goes straight to red). Upon advise of others i have replaced the fuser - did not cure- and then the low voltage power supply - still did not cure. Any one got any ideas, next logical step would seem to replace the HVPS but it is getting expensive.
Did you try to print a config page (hit 3 x set)? It does also a reset.

Thanks, but this printer and most others will only print a config page when in a "ready" state. - lftrev
No, not true. Printing the config page with the HL-2460 can reset a service call. Also check or your power suply gives enough power to the fuser.

After the fixing unit was replaced, Turn on
the printer, then count blinking message 10
times, and then press “Job Cancel” key
immediately after 10th message of
“ERROR E50” appeared

Pressing the "job cancel" button after the service call message flashed 10 times did work for me, at least for now. The "go" plus "+" keys had no effect. Pressing "set" 3 times had no effect either. Let's hope this thing keeps printing. Nice printer, but scary when it goes down. Thanks everyone for your input. - Anonymous
i had this fault on a 1670n and it was the main pcb (formatter)
the fuser was faulty as well.

After replacing the fuser for error 50 you have to reset the message in the main PCB (formatter), you can locate a service center in www.Brother.com they know how to reset the message. - Anonymous
Have worked for me too.

I changed my fuser because of a E50 on HL2460 error .

But as i had the same error message i've waited 10 blinked error message and pressed "job canceled" and now my printer work again !

Thanks a lot for the guy who have posted this solution first....

I've saved 800€ !
