Question about Minolta Office Equipment & Supplies
Error appears in the process of making a copy, mid way into the machine by the drum sction
Directly below the drum section is a assemble called the transfer/separation assy. the purpose of this unit is twofold. (It houses to very thin gold plated wires) One wire is what helps the transfer of the image from the drum to the paper. Since the paper goes between this wire and the drum, the second wire prevent the paper from sticking to the drum during the transfer process. The code you have been getting means either wire might be broke, or has to cleaned (because of all the toner on it from the drum assy. which need to removed and cleaned. Or The end blocks that hold the wires are getting old and allowing the High Voltage that is applied to the wire during the copy/print process are breaking down allowing the high voltage to ground. Open close the front door to clear. If it comes back have qualified tech look at it. Try web site below for place to start for parts

SOURCE: changing the drum
I fixed the problem (following the user's guide).
1. After reinstalling the new drum unit into the printer, keep the front cover open.
2. Press "Clear/Back" on the machine
3. Press "1" and when the LCD shows "Accepted", close the front cover.

I already answered this at some other place here - but just to make sure the word gets out there:
There is a little special (white) gear on the outer left side of the drumkit - a little bit below where the toner sits. That gear joins with toner assembly - and you can rotate it counterclockwise all the way back. This should reset the drum counter - worked for me!
I hope it also does the trick for you ;-)

What did you wipe the drum off with???? That is why you have this problem. You may want to try recleaning the opc with a dry soft rag, also you may want to clean the drum blade... If that dose not solve your problem, you may need to replace the opc & blade... Have you tried to stop the copy before it gets to the fuser unit.. If so, are the marks there???

3 possible causes:
1) The optics are dirty thus making your copy darker. The test for this is to manually lighten the copy using the exposure control on the panel of your copier. Lighten the copy several positions and see if the copy gets better. If it does then the optics need to be cleaned.
2) The copier is overtoned. This means that the toner to developer concentration is to high. This will require a trained technician to lower the toner ratio and then recalibrate the toner/developer ration using the F8 mode.
3) If the shading gets much worse as you run say 10 copies in a row then the drum cleaning blade would be the cause. So run 10 copies of something and compare the first copy out with the tenth copy out. Do you see a dramatic difference in the amount of background or "shading"?
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.
