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.

ANSWER : There is a thin plastic arm that the paper pushes on. It is spring loaded. If it doesn’t return and unblock the sensor after the paper passes it, you get the paper jam warning. I’m guessing that is the spring you are referring to.

Error message reads remove and check right cartridge
ANSWER : You can try cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge and the ones that they contact in the printer. Other than that, you have to replace the cartridge. I once had one that did the same thing. I swapped the cartridge with another printer of the same model and both printers worked fine. I swapped them back and the original printer got the same error. The other printer had no problem with either cartridge. I swapped them back and left them that way.

13.01.00 "jam in tray …" error message
ANSWER : I have never seen that problem. Really bizarre. I have to say that I’ve never replaced a main motor in any printer that I can remember and we’re talking thousands of them. I would suggest that if you have a voltmeter that you check the main motor contacts during the warm up procedure and see if they are indeed getting any voltage and go from there. If there is voltage, it’s the motor. If not, then most likely the controller board. If you don’t have a meter, it’s cheaper to buy one than start buying parts for the printer.
