Hello, welcome to JustAnswer my name is ***** ***** I'm one of the experts who will be assisting you today.Error 50.1 usually indicates there's a paper stuck in in the fuser or less common, a problem with the power source (this would depend on the age of the device).Please take a look at this page for a small guide on how to troubleshoot the error, also, ignore the title as the same steps apply to the 4700 which you have. you want to see how the fuser is removed, here's a video: me know how it goes!Please reply using the box below.Regards,Martin

I have tried all the ideas except changing the fuser unit as I don't have a spare. The same message appears. The machine stopped during a run, there is no blockage does this mean a new fuser kit or if I buy one will that produce the same message?
Expert:  Martin replied 2 years ago.
Sometimes removing it and a good clean does the job, remember to leave it out for 30 mins or so. Since it was already running it could mean a new fuser kit OR it could mean the power source isn't working properly. Try connecting it to a separate power point isolated from everything else to discard that. If the LaserJet comes on normally and still doesn't work it could mean you need a new fuser kit - you shouldn't see the error again if you've checked everything else properly. Does this make sense?

Will try to get a new fuser kit, but it won't come now until Thursday, will reply when I've tried that. Thanks.
