Large format laser printers like the Hewlett Packard LaserJet 2600N use a control panel system to display error messages and alert users to potential problems. The trouble is that those printer control panel messages can sometimes be enigmatic. The 50.9 fuser error is a good example. This message does not necessarily mean that there is a problem with the fuser, so it is best to take some preliminary steps before calling for service.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


    Remove a 50.9 Fuser Error

  1. 1

    Power down the printer. Allow it to remain off for about 5 minutes.

  2. 2

    Power the printer back on and watch the control panel messages carefully. Shut the printer back down if the message comes back.

  3. 3

    Allow the printer to remain off for at least 30 minutes. This gives the fuser time to cool down. An overheated fuser cartridge can cause a 50.9 error, especially if the printer has just been used heavily.

  4. 4

    Contact HP service at 1-800-652-6672 if the problem persists. If power cycling and cooling the printer does not resolve the 50.9 fuser error the printer needs to be serviced.

    Remove the Fuser Cartridge

  1. 1

    Shut down the HP 2600n printer and allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes. The fuser cartridge gets very hot, and trying to remove it too soon could result in serious burns.

  2. 2

    Open the fuser cartridge cover and locate the small blue tabs at each side of the fuser cartridge. You can identify the fuser cartridge by looking for the bright yellow warning label indicating that the unit is hot.

  3. 3

    Flip down the two blue clips on either side of the fuser cartridge. Grip the fuser cartridge by the handle and pull it straight out of the printer. Slide a new fuser cartridge into the printer and flip the blue clips up to lock it into place.
