80 scheduled maintenance


This issue is just like changing your oil or the timing belt on your car. If you don't fix it correctly it leads to other problems. So, be warned. :+)

Here's what the Lexmark KB says:

On the Lexmark T520/522 series printers, we recommend that the maintenance kit be replaced after every 250,000 pages. If possible, an authorized service technician should replace the maintenance kit parts on these printers.

On the Lexmark T620/622 series printers, we recommend that the maintenance kit be replaced after every 300,000 pages. The maintenance kit parts for these printers are customer-installable, but some dismantling of the rear area of the printer is involved.

Note: The maintenance kit may need to be replaced more often if the customer is running heavy media (like card stock or labels) through the printer.
It is possible to clear the maintenance error message without replacing the kit. The printer will still operate, but some print quality problems may arise. However, this is not recommended as the message serves as a reminder that maintenance is due. If the printer is under warranty, the customer has to purchase the maintenance kit and have it replaced in order to keep the warranty active, although the on-site replacement itself may be covered under the warranty.
The parts that make up the maintenance kits are:
A fuser unit
A transfer roller
A charge roller
To find the part number of the maintenance kit needed for your printer, see Printers / Maintenance kits.
Clearing the maintenance message
To clear the message, you will need to go into the printer's configuration mode. Do the following:
  1. Press and hold the SELECT and the RETURN buttons as you power the printer on.
  2. Hold the buttons for six to eight seconds after turning on the power, then release them. (If you receive the maintenance message, press the Go or the Select button to continue past it.)
  3. Now, press the right Menu arrow until you see RESET MAINT CNT.
  4. Select this. You may need to press the Select button again. The printer display should briefly flash SAVED.
  5. Power the printer off and then back on in the normal way. The printer should now power up normally.
  6. If it does not and the error returns, repeat the above procedure.

Ricoh ap4510 - Maintenance Kit Issue


For the message to be cleared you should enter the service menu and reset the replaced elements

8550DP Maintenance Kit


First of all make sure it is the right kit. The part numbers for teh 8550 and 2424 are very close, one ends in 675 the other in 657, so they have been known to be mixed up.
then here is the documentation..

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.

We have a Phaser 8560 Printer and we are getting the message "maintenance kit low" message. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


This will require servicing:
The maintenance kit contains a maintenance roller that keeps the surface of the Imaging Drum clean and oiled.
NOTE: Order a new maintenance kit when the Display Screen displays a message that the maintenance kit is low. Replace the kit when the Display Screen prompts you to replace the maintenance kit. Both a Standard Maintenance Kit and an Extended Maintenance Kit are available for the Phaser 8550 and 8560; however, only a Standard Maintenance Kit is available for the Phaser 8500. An Extended Maintenance Kit will not be functional with the Phaser 8500.

WARNING: The printer's interior may be hot! Do not touch the hot surfaces.

Once you have the part: instructions:
  1. Open the door on the right side of the printer.
  2. Grasp the maintenance kit (labeled A) from the maintenance kit slot and pull the kit completely out of the printer.
  3. Insert a new maintenance kit and push the kit completely into the maintenance kit slot. Follow the illustrated instructions included with the maintenance kit for full installation and disposal information.
  4. Close the door.
This will be on the right side of the printer.
This will need to be replace every 10,000 sheets of paper.

  1. Close the door.
