Samsung CLX3175 FW Printer - Systenm Error Cycle Power

by dslongstaff / January 3, 2012 3:51 AM PST


I wonder if anyone can help. I am getting a message "System Error
Cycle Power" on my Samsung CLX 3175 FW printer. Rebooting machine multiple times
makes no difference. Some suggested you should reinstall the drivers on your PC,
but that seems completely wrong to me.

Most Google searches suggest it
needs a new fuser unit (only 14 months old, so a bit annoying.) However, the
error message seems a bit vague.

I've managed to get the old one out, but
can't decide what part to buy. The service manual I found online says
"JC96-04780A" (it's a 220V - UK model). This part seems to be quite expensive at
around £90.

However, Google searches for a "fuser unit for Samsung CLX
3175" seem to bring most results for a part "JC96-05491B" at about £40. The
images look like it's the right part, and so it's tempting to go for the cheaper

I have 2 questions.

1) Does anyone know if the system
error really does mean a new fuser unit is required?
2) Any ideas if the
cheaper part will be fine? Any help will be really appreciated.

Sorry but if you look at questions about fuser units for all makes you see the same plea as above. They want it to be something else or cheaper. As I can't shop in the UK or Euro zones I don't know if it can be had for less but I do know that this part is changed out after many pages. If you don't want to risk it, take it to the Samsung service center and they will only change the right part.

Someone has suggested that these are the same parts. If that is the case, that at least answers one point.
Anyone know if the "System Error Cycle Power" means a new fuser?
Many thanks.

It can mean that.

Today's gear is better than a few decades ago but I have encountered on the rare occasion where the message is something is out but find a paper scrap blocking the sensor. Very rare but happens. The only way to tell if the new fuser is the fix for most folk is to install the new fuser.
