Hello, I replaced the fuser on my 734de and I still get fuser life warning


Did you replace the fuser with a new Lexmark fuser or a refurbished unit? The original Lexmark units have a chip in them that resets the counter when installed. However this only works the first time the fuser is installed. If you install a used fuser in a different printer it will not reset the counter.

All error code soloution of fuser unit Fuser Unit Error Status Counter
Purpose
When a fuser unit related error (error code C41, C43, C44 or C45) occurs, the set value of the fuser status
counter varies, depending on type of error.
Displaying and checking the set value of the fuser status counter can analyze a cause for the error. If
any of "2 to 9" is set at the fuser status counter, the fuser unit will not be operated for safety reasons.
After the fuser unit related error is resolved, if "0" is set, the fuser unit will be operated as usual. If any of
"10 to 19" is set at the fuser status counter, the fuser unit will be operated as usual, even if "0" is not set
after the fuser unit related error is resolved.

Description
When this code is used, the current set value of the fuser status counter is displayed. Only "0" can be

HL-5250 report shows fuser and laser life at 0% and PF kit 1 at 12%


The fuser is a separate component to the drum and toner in this printer. It has a much longer life than them but will run out eventually. Sadly a fuser unit is not a commercially available consumable for this printer either. I would recommend contatcing a printer technicain or Brother directly for a quote on replacing this part.

All three lights blink rapidly. The computer says it cannot communicate with the printer. When I plug the USB into the computer the computer doesn't acknowledge that anything was plugged in. If I...


It sounds like your main board (the brains) in the printer is fried (I got the same problem with mine). That part (when purchased new) costs so much, your better off just getting a new printer, and it's not your typical user serviceable part (hard to remove, many wire/plugs going to/from it).

The problem with replacing it with a used part, is that the used circuit board will still have the consumable counters in it set to old values from the printer is was pulled from, and NEW or RE-Chipped consumables will be needed to reset those back to zero again (not just the toners, but also the photo drums, fuser, and transfer belt). So, if the used board was connected to "old" consumables (nearly depleted), you won't be getting too many prints before it's asking for either new toners, photo drums, fuser, or transfer belt. The fuser and transfer belt cost upwards of $175 or more each....

How it works is like this, according to Okidata's Tech support guys. When you put a new "consumable" (toner, photo drum, fuser, transfer belt) into the printer, that main board resets the counters AND THEN it immediately blows a fuse (not a regular fuse, but a microchip fuse) in that comsumable so it can never reset the counter for that consumable again. When that consumable's counter reaches it's predetermined number of prints, the printer refuses to print until it is replaced (or it is "re-chipped" with a new fuse).

They make toner refill cartridge chips, and I think even a photo drum kit (seen it on Ebay). But I haven't found anything that would rest the fuser or tranfer belt. Let me know if you find something to reset the fuser or transfer belt.
