Replace Maintenance Kit

So, I am being told to replace this kit after x pages. I don't see any problems with the print and don't really see why I should replace the kit right yet. What are the issues? Not a tightwad, just want to know the necessity.

There are two reasons why the machine might tell you to replace the kit. The first is based on page count and if that is your case then you need to replace it. Sometimes in a printer with low use it expires by the date but will continue to work and it still has lots of use left. So you need to confirm if yours is "life over" or "expired"

Hope this helps.

How to reset hp laserjet m5035 maintenance kit problem


When page count approaches 200,000 pages printed, the device alerts to order a maintenance kit. The message can be temporarily cleared by using the Clear Maintenance Message item on the Resets submenu under Administration. When the page count reaches 200,000, the message can no longer be cleared and the maintenance kit must be installed. To check the number of pages that the device has printed since new maintenance-kit components were installed, print either a configuration page or a supplies-status page. The print-engine maintenance kit includes the following items:
  • Fuser
  • Rollers (transfer, feed and separation)
  • Separation pads
  • Installation instructions

I need to purchas one maintenance kit for HP 5100 laserjet printer. what contents should be there in manitenance kit. I got no authorised information about this on hp site


To ensure optimum print quality, the printer will prompt you to perform printer maintenance every 150,000 pages. When the PERFORM PRINTER MAINTENANCE message appears on the control panel, you will need to purchase a printer maintenance kit and install the new parts. To check the number of pages the printer has printed, print a configuration page.

To print a configuration page:
1 Press [Menu] until INFORMATION MENU appears.
2 Press [Item] until PRINT CONFIGURATION appears.
3 Press [Select] to print the configuration page.


To order the printer maintenance kit, contact an HP authorized service or support provider. (See the telephone support flyer included with the printer.)

The kit includes:
fuser assembly
transfer roller
feed rollers
necessary instructions

For more information on installing the printer maintenance kit, see the instructions that accompany it.

Paper is printing but top edge of paper is creased and torn


It sounds like your maintenance kit is defective.
The excess oil leads me to believe that.

Xerox Phaser 8560 mfp Printing issue


That really sounds like you need to replace the maintenance kit.
The white roller most likely is black and has depleted itself of lubricant a bit prematurely.

Print Quality - Shadowing


What does the white roll on the maintenance kit look like?
Is it really dirty? It could be either the kit, maybe the ink.
But in partiular if the kit was stood on end and not stored laying flat, the lubricant in the kit may have saturated one side and depleted on the other.
I have never seen the non Xerox ink, and have no clue if it would cause a problem like that.
I suspect a maintenance kit, that it is dry on one end.

Maintanance kit replace


Problem:
The machine displays the Replace Maintenance Kit after the Maintenance Kit has been replaced.
Cause:
There may two causes for this issue.
  1. The machine does not recognize that the Maintenance Kit was removed. This would likely be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate.
  2. The machine corrupts the CRUM on the new Maintenance Kit. This may be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate or IO Board.
Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix.
  1. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message does not change to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a new Maintenance Kit.
  2. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message changes to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the IO Board and then install a different NEW Maintenance Kit. If the problem persists, replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a different NEW Maintenance Kit.

Does it jam at the fuser when doing a single print?

These machines have a Maintenance kit required every 200 000 prints, these MK's include all feed rollers, a transfer roller and the entire fuser assy. To replace the kit fixes all issues I've seen in these printers besides when the cartridge affects print quality.

If it is jamming at the fuser on a single print done via the printer operations panel, and your paper is fresh, it could only be the feed roller having trouble gripping the paper or the fuser not turning/stuffed.

Feed Kit, I have my doubts as to this being your problem

Maintenance Kit Fixes 98% of the time

Was is noisy before it died?
I have seen a few with stuffed fuser drive gears but not many and customers could hear it wearing.


How many prints since last MK? via keypad print a configuration page, count is there ie pages since last maintenance xxxxxx
