Whenever you replace the photoconductor unit, you will also need to reset its page count. Failure to do this will cause the printer to display, or continue to display, a Replace Photoconductor Kit message and possibly stop printing. IMPORTANT! The photoconductor page count should be reset only when a brand-new photoconductor kit is installed. Resetting the page count without replacing the photoconductor kit could cause the photoconductor to operate beyond its intended life and thus create print quality issues.

  1. Power the printer on and get it to the Ready state (i.e. the how do i reset a - pattlnk_1122005_218-enus20682_readylighticon_e230_en_us.gif light on the operator panel is on, as shown below).



  2. With the printer on and in the Ready state, open the front cover, as shown.



  3. Press and hold the Cancel () button until all of the lights begin flashing up and down.



  4. Release the Cancel button and close the door. The photoconductor count should now be reset.
  5. To confirm that the photoconductor page count has been reset, it is recommended that you print a menu settings page and check the photoconductor level. Do the following:
    1. With the printer at the Ready status, press the Continue (pattlnk_1122005_1857-enus20682_continuebuttonicon_e230_en_us.gif) button once. The Ready ) light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.

    2. Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor under this heading.
    3. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is either OK or close to 100%.
    4. If the reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages.
    5. Print the menu settings page(s) again.
    6. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
    7. If the photoconductor reading is still low, there is a second, more detailed, procedure you can perform to reset the count. Click here for those instructions.
    8. If the reading is still low after both procedures have been attempted, the printer may require service. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support for more information.

No, if you changed the photoconductor kit, then you just need to reset the maintenace count for the PE Kit.

Please follow this hyperlink to the specific instructions you need on Lexmarks web site.

E450dn get's a paper jam any time two or more sheets are sent on a print job. There is no space between the papges to allow the input sensor to reach the Home position. How do I fix it?


This is a possible pick tire issue. Try to reverse the tires, turning it inside out. Fan the paper and adjust the tray guide. If that doesn't help, printer will probably require service. I suggest you contact Lexmark technical support or your authorized service provider. Thanks.
