F2-04 means that the IC chip on the end of the toner has been blown by the copier due to the fact that for X-period after attempting to , the copier was unable to replenish the toner level in the developer unit, there may be various problems leading to this, most common is that the gears on developer unit was stripped, or toner motor is no longer functioning, or that the magnetic sensor on the bottom of the developer unit is coated by a layer of toner of compacted developer or toner, or you used the wrong cartridge, either way , F2-04 is usually indicative of something worse than expected, my professional opinion on this one is to send it in for repairs by a qualified service technician.

This is a low fuser temperature error.
You should be able to reset it by doing the following at the panel.

Hit Pound, star, C, Star
enter 14, then touch start
execute on the screen
the machine will reboot and the code should go away.

if the problem persists you may need some maintenance.

You can remove the tray by pulling it all the way at and tipping it up and to the right. Try cleaning your feed wheels with windex on a towel, never use alcohol as it will dry out your rubber parts. If you are still having problems try using static free canned air to blow off the sensors in there. Let me know if that works other wise we can try some other steps.
