Actually, there isn't one! But, you can get rid of the message. Press clear modes, 1,0,7, and then press and hold clear stop. Choose copy sp. Scroll to 5, (mode) then scroll to PCU alarm setting. There are 2 options. Display will shut the message off. If it is a 1, make it 0, or vice versa. Interval, will set the count. You can make it an 80, and that will give you 20000 more prints. Personally, I would change the PCU really soon, other wise you will pay for it in toner.

They are rated at 60,000 copies....it depends on where the end counter is set at before it fails, Approximately 500 to 1000 maximum copies before complete failure.

Hi, the message automatically goes away when you install the new photoconductor unit. Until you install the new unit, the message will remain on the screen, but it won't affect operation at all -- you can still use the copier just like normal; that message will just keep popping up.
The machine keeps a counter for how long the photoconductor unit has been in use, and around 60,000 copies or so it displays that message so that you know to replace the unit soon. You can keep the old unit in as long as you want, but eventually you will probably start to see a degradation in copy quality -- faint lines, spotting, dirty background, and/or light copies.
If you don't already have a new photoconductor unit on hand, the EDP code if you want to order one is 410423. I would recommend getting a genuine Ricoh photoconductor, because third-party units have been known to create problems on occasion.
Thanks for using FixYa!
