I want to reset the copier so the "replace Unit" light doesn't flash.It still makes good copies, and I don't want to replace both the drum and developer to get the light to go off.

    The first advice did not work. I removed the units, disconnected from power for 2+ minutes, then reinstalled and still flashing red light. There must be something with a new drum/developer that triggers the "replace unit" light to go off. My drum and developer are still making great copies!

    Hello

    I pressed the buttons as directed. I pressed stop/clear a 2nd time; copier reverted to normal mode and not I am not sure how to "enter 73 print menu".. I entered "73" in page count, but no menu appears, etc. Meanwhile, copier thinks I want to make 73 copies and just starts to copy.

    Hello

    I have a Kyocera Mita Copystar CS-2114 copy machine. I need to get the flashing "replace unit" light to go off so I can resume normal copying with the perfectly good drum and developer unit that is currently in it.

  • upub5 Dec 09, 2008

    I don't know how to reach the manufacturer tech support line and doubt one exists. There is a way to reset so that the drum count goes back to one. I have done it with my Xerox copiers.

HI
here is the fix: Press "C", press the exposure button (below the picture of the little man), press "C", press the exposure button. When you do this all the indicator lights will turn off. Now input "24", press the green start button, input 07, and press the start button again. Now turn the copier off and back on with the power switch on the side. 


Press: "Clear", "Exposure Select Key", "Clear", "Exposure Select Key", "24", "Start Key", "7", "Start Key"

    if you want to reset the entire machine though here is the procedure.



    1. At the Control Panel, press and hold the 0 key for 5 seconds, then press the Start button while still pressing the 0 key.
      The CE Mode - Password Entry screen will appear.

Key the front door. To enter service mode hold clear/stop and print while powering ON. Using the + keys increment up to simulation 60, press print to start. Adjust the toner control VR on the front of the developing unit to center the LEDs on the exposure indicator. Press clear/stop to stop. Power Off/On to exit simulation mode.

If you cannot center the LEDs. Developer must be new. Clean the toner sensor surface. Check the doctor blade is set to 1.05mm, and mag brush to 18mm. Leave the toner hopper and front cover off of the developing unit. Remove the back cover. Run simulation 60 for several minutes to completely stir the developer.

If LED's show 1) Always Light, 2) Always Dark, 3) Irratic

While running simulation 60, meter pin 3 of the developing unit plug to ground from the back of the copier (center pin, top row). This is the toner sensor output. Ideal value is 2.7VDC. Acceptable range is 2.5 to 2.9VDC. If it is not, adjust the VR within the toner sensor accordingly, or replace the toner sensor. A problem with the toner sensor is usually seen as 1) Always Light condition and readings from 3.0 to 4.5VDC.

With 2) Always Dark or 3) Irratic, stop simulation 60. Remove the developing unit from the copier. Meter pins 5 to 10 on the 20Kohm range (the two pins to the far right as viewed from the back), while turning the developer setting VR. Readings should range from 0 to 4500 ohms. Readings of 4500 unchanging, or irratic indicate a faulty developer setting VR. Replace the VR with Mita part # 73928070 Toner Density VR PCB (or Radio Shack part # 271-280, PCB Mount 1Kohm Potentiometer). New developer sets correctly around 700 ohms on the VR.

This procedure works on the Mita DC2114/2113. The only difference between that and the Mita DC1415/1435 is that the mag brush setting is 20mm, and the developing unit plug is rotated 180 degrees.

This should be the reset procedure for Kyocera Mita, if I remember well:

enter the service mode holding down the buttons print and stop/clear, and starting the unit at the same time, then leave the buttons and press again stop/clear
Enter 73 print menu, there you can reset lamp counter. Restart the unit to complete the procedure.

I will also be grateful if you can rate the solution after this work.

    You need to reset the counter from service mode. The point is how to enter in service mode.

    There are different procedure , depending on the model.

    I remember you start service mode holding down the buttons print and stop/clear, and starting the unit at
    the same time, then leave the buttons and press again stop/clear


    Enter 73 print menu, there you can reset the counter to 00.

    Here is a different reset for KM 1505.

    I must have also service manuals for a couple of models.
    Post the model.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 06, 2008

    You enter the nr 73 to chose the menu when you get 00 that means service menu.

    that depends on the model ,

    give me the model before entering in service mode..

    Tell me the exact model.

You may indeed have to replace the unit, have you called the manufacturer tech support line?

Sharp AL2020 AL2040 AL2060 Copier Drum Light Reset


So maybe you have replaced your drum but the light did not reset. Or your copies are fine and you would like to get more copies out of the drum unit rather than just replace it. Here is the procedure.
Press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" key then the "Auto" key, then the "C" key then the "Auto" key again.
So in other words C, Auto, C, Auto
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's or "Drum Reset" on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
Works on the Sharp 2020 2040 2060 as well as others.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Minolta copier ep2152


If you are asking about a ep2152. That is a very old copier, they may not make part for it. Let's try, do you have what looks like a front view of a camera lite up orange or flashing? If so, you need a new IU unit/ drum & cln blade & developer most likely sold sepperate. I don't think they make the whole unit as one piece. I could be wrong. Try making a copy with the IU unit out. If the marks are on the blank page that comes out, it is in the fixing unit.You will need to replace the upper fixing roller & lower roller & cln roller. If you put the IU unit back in and the line is there then you have to rebiuld the IU unit. Good Luck....
