Z3100ps 44" error code 44:10
« on: January 06, 2013, 01:07:20 PM »

Hello. I have an error code - 44:10. Stopped in the middle of a print.
Restarts are no help, of course.
Does anyone know the issue?
Any help would be welcome.
Thank you

According to the manual, the 44:10 error is a failure of what they call the aerosol fan. You will need to get the service manual and that will show you how to troubleshoot and re-seat or replace the related connectors or components, as needed. Itís possible that one of the fanís electrical connections came loose or that the fan was gummed up by ink or dust.

You can find links to the manual somewhere on this site. If you canít find the manual, send me your email address privately and Iíll email it to you.

If it were me, Iíd start by being mildly exasperated, and use that as an opportunity to go for a walk or bike ride. Once I got back, Iíd realize it hadnít fixed itself, so Iíd become exasperated again. At some point Iíd get around to runing the diagnostic test on the fan that the manual illustrates. This procedure is noted in on about page 100.

If it fails the test, Iíd collect my tool kit and some other stuff to get ready to remove the right side cover. It only takes about 20 minutes or so. Next Iíd find a box and some baggies and a sharpie pen to note which screws and other bits end up being placed in which bag, or box. The side cover is actually designed to be removed, so is pretty easy to do. Iíve had the questionable fortune to conclude that from the perspective of disassembly and re-assembly the printer is fairly well engineered.

Once you have the cover off it will be pretty easy to see what condition the fan is in, and if the connectors are seated.

When I had mine apart, I found that a bunch of ink made its way to the aerosol fan and produced quite a mess. I removed the fan assembly from the printer and cleaned everything with lint free paper towels and a lot of Windex. It cleaned up okay.

If the fan needs to be replaced, HP has a part number for it, so it can be ordered.

I had the same problem..
In fact it was the first reason to open the z3100 - after 3 years of use
You can buy the new fan from HP very cheap and replacement is easy... You have the service manual?
