Check for excessive wear on gears in Main Drive Assembly

An issue was identified with the material in one of the gears in the Main Drive Assembly for some of the early production units. This issue would cause excessive wear on the gear that eventually results in a 59.0C/59.00. C0 error.

59,c0 errors often indicate a problem with the drive train of the printer.
This error is a motor error. The C0 probably refers to the alienation motor. Replacing the alienation motor may resolve your issue. If not maybe there is a damage in your main gear assembly.
C0 error indicates Developer motor rotation error. This is a hardware failure.
The HP printer error 59. F0 may be caused due to the failure in transfer alienation. Transfer alienation is a situation in which the Intermediate Transfer Belt (ITB) gets stuck and does not fully rotate.
Description: This error is primarily caused by a transfer alienation failure in which the ITB is stuck and unable to rotate, the SR9 sensor (the primary transfer roller disengagement sensor) has gone bad or the fuser drive assembly has failed.
For a 59. F0 error, generally we recommend you try reseating the transfer belt assembly a couple times, also try reseating the toner and the fuser assembly. If you have spares of any of these parts you can install them to help eliminate culprits. The problem can be a failing Transfer Belt Assembly.
59 error including loud noise followed with a poor print quality and toner cartridge coming out of its position, and/or toner access door starts to open by itself. Source of all above-mentioned symptoms is a bent metal ( U shaped) shaft that is used to lock toner cartridge in position for printing.
A 59 error is a motor issue of some sort. Could be as simple as a bad cartridge causing the drum motor to lock up.
The 59. F0 error is typically the result of a small sensor switch inside the ITB (Intermediate Transfer Belt) assembly that is not working correctly. It will have variable amounts of resistance as it is activated during the course of operation and causes the error.
This error is primarily caused by a transfer alienation failure in which the ITB is stuck and unable to rotate, the SR9 sensor (the primary transfer roller disengagement sensor) has gone bad or the fuser drive assembly has failed.
59.10 is a main drive error, which could be a bound up fuser. 51.10 is a laser error, which could be a bad laser unit. Which error do you have? If the printer can print an engine test, then you may have a bad formatter.
59.70 is a black developer motor failure. If unit is still under warranty contact tech support and get it repaired. If unit is out of warranty you will need a developer motor RM2–7344–000CN.
This is a ITB motor rotation error. Take out the ITB (Intermediate Transfer Belt) and check it for any damage. Re-install it back in the printer and try again. If the error persists, then the printer must be serviced.
The 59.40 is a “fuser rotational error“. Meaning the fuser was unable to rotate causing this error.
Apparently, a bad toner cartridge can cause error 59.00. 30, but replacing the toner combined with: removing the fuser and putting some oil on the axis at each end (and turning the gear several revolutions), cleaning the paper path and rollers solved the problem.
Recommended action. Turn the printer off, wait 15 seconds and turn the printer back on (using the power switch located on the back of the printer). The error code should not appear again.
This system error usually occurs after an Ink System has been replaced and either timed-out or was aborted. The printer detected one or more of the ink systems as faulty or not having been replaced (indicated by the flashing squares). The message may also appear if the printer believes that a component is incorrect.
On the device control panel, press Menu/Enter. Use the < or the > button to select Service, and then press Menu/Enter. Use the < or the > button to select Restore defaults, and then press Menu/Enter. The device automatically restarts.
00 or a 50.22. 11 error displays on the control panel, it indicates an issue with the fuser warming up. Step 1: Turn the printer off, and then on. Turn the printer off, and then on to clear the error.
Have you ever experienced a 59.0, 59.1, or 59.2 error on the HP LaserJet 9000 series printers or MFPs? These three errors are all related to the Drum Feed Drive Motor. 59.0 error = general motor error • 59.1 error = motor startup error that may appear when powering on the printer • 59.2 error = motor rotation error.
If the error code 33.05 is displayed once inserting the eMMC and or replacing the Printer`s Formatter, an updated firmware must be performed. The printer may broad cast this error along with the “Security Alert” message.
The “Scanner error 5” usually triggers when the scanner`s drive motor fails. Fortunately, replacing the scanner assembly (which includes the motor) is not considered difficult. Our installation instructions are available below. Click here to purchase a replacement scanner assembly.

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.

Error Code 52.1M
ANSWER : Magenta laser error. The spinning motor bearings cause the squeal and that slows it down causing the error. You could try opening it and lubricating the motor shift with a drop of synthetic lubricant. Do not use more than a drop.
