Do laser printers overheat?
Fuser error 50.3 signals that your machine is overheating. Your fuser may overheat due to the type of paper you use. Your printer would have to heat its fuser to a higher temperature to bond the toner to the thick paper. If your printer’s fuser runs at a higher temperature for a prolonged period, it would overheat.
