On ePay, www.ezcopiers.com seller has fuser units for these for $95.99
and you get $20 back when you send in your old fuser.... so that is
only $75.99 for a rebuilt fuser... better....

>Hey everyone... I'm trying to "rescue" this LaserJet 5P.  He's in pretty good 
>condition physically & cosmetically, so making it work would be kinda bonus.
>Problem crops up when it starts to spin up the scanner, start moving the paper 
>path and (presumably) fire up the fuser.  It then comes to an abrupt stop, 
>lights up all LEDs (except the bottom "Ready" light) and sits there.  Holding 
>both buttons, I get a new LED code with just the paper jam LED lit.
>Research thus far says that it's a 50 error, which means the fuser didn't hit 
>a certain temp by a certain time.  I see references to replacing the "thermal 
>fuse", though others have told me it's an actual thermistor.  
>Has anyone had this problem themselves and/or been able to fix it?  Fusers are 
>upwards of $150 or so.
