Reset counter on Xerox Phaser 8200

I am trying to reset the maintenance kit counter for the Xerox Phaser 8200. I didn't use the machine for almost (or maybe more than) a year because it made such a racket when it printed. I finally fixed the noise problem but now the machine is saying I need a new maintenance kit. The kit is practically brand new but because I haven't use the machine, I think it is counting days not uses for this kit. I'm sure there is a way to reset the counter but I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Grace

    Hi Ken0297:

    Thanks for your response. Yes, I do remember you have to reset something but I can't seem to find instructions on HOW to reset the counter.



    Thanks,

    Thanks.



    I did this one other time without a external piece of hardware. It was some combination of buttons and atart up - but I can't remember what they were and cannot locate my notes. But thanks again.

You can buy a kit to refurbish your reset counter for $20.00 including shipping at http://skyforms.netfirms.com/cgi-bin/phaser.cgi . It adds 45,000 copies to the counter. Also, a guy on ebay sells the kit already reset for 32.95 plus shipping.

I think the maintanance kit runs out based on time and usage, which ever comes first, roll back your printers clock a few months or more and see if that fix's the problem.

    This sounds like the supplies "Override" feature that HP printers have, I did this to my HP 2600n, it works pretty good to get the last 500 pages of toner out of your cartridge that would otherwise be thrown away.

The "counter" is an electronic module that is replaced when you replace the maintenance kit, this module measures "usage" but may also hold time & date info (possibly set from the printers internal clock).... I hear it is possible to reset this module but you will need a piece of equipment (chip resetter) that most of us don't have, I think someone on eBay is offering reset chips for $37 shipped.

Xerox 8560 Maintenance Kit remaining life


You're probably lucky that your machine still works after using non-xerox products, in any event, I'd suggest a new Xerox Extended kit, it's possible the non-xerox product didn't work as intended and your replacement kit wore out faster because of it.

The kit contains a micro chip which "resets' the counter in your machine, as the count comes from the kit, not the machine itself, however, the machine is capable of sensing when the maintenance kit has reached end of life regardless of count.

Additionally, you should check the wiper blade (you can see it when you remove the maintenance kit) for excessive wax buildup which generally means the machine needs service.

These are great printers, very fast for the quality. They can be quite a nightmare to service due to so many systems which have to be exact!
My #1 advice on this product is if you own one, never ever move it while it's hot! or you could face a very expensive repair!

It cannot be reset at all.

RESET INSTRUCTONS FOR XEROX 8560 MAINTENANCE KIT


The maint kit resets the counter when it is installed. You may have gotten a bad maint kit or the black plasstic part that the roller slides into is bad. That is where the connection is to reset the counter.

Maintenance kit for Xerox 8500


Contact the company that you purchased the maintenance kit from.
They should have the solution or send you a replacement.
I know of no way to change the Xerox printer to match up with a non Xerox maintenance kit. They would not set the machine up to accept non Xerox products since that voids warranties.
