error ##336
ANSWER : It means abnormal temperature in the print head. Only thing you can do other than replacing the print head is to try cleaning it. That’s done by removing all the ink tanks. On the right side of the cartridge assy., you’ll see a plastic lever. Lift that up to release the print head assy. It just lifts out from the back. Take it over to the sink and run hot tap water through the screens on top and then flip it over and run it over the heads on the bottom. Repeat a few times and then reinstall and try again.

Error Code 51.1 says Printer Error No Kidding.lol
ANSWER : Sometimes turning off and on will allow you to print a few pages. The error is a beam detect error. The only real fix is to replace the laser scanner unit. Could be a loose connector on the scanner or DC controller from the scanner. That’s unlikely. You could try the only other free fix which is to open the scanner assy. and clean all the mirrors inside. The dust could obstruct the laser beam enough to cause the detect error.
