Our bizhub-250 receives a C2557, need help with service mode

Yesterday I changed the drum and developer unit of the machine. The very last step involved performing an ATDC adjustment. For instructions I was refered to another manual which said I needed to go into Tech. Rep. Mode ((I believe that this may be the same as the service mode that people are refering to when discussing a C2557). For that I was refered to the service manual, which wasn't available anywhere. I decided to go right ahead and test the printer anyway, at which point I received a malfunctions-error C2557 and realized my error. If anyone knows where I can find a copy of the service manual or can tell me how to go into Tech. Rep. Mode or service mode I would be more than appreciative.

Go to counter and clear the life of the developer and drums and then run F8 from functions.

C2557 is ATDC sensor failture, first check the level history in service mode,
press utility/counter, stop-0-0-stop-0-1, press the password, "00000000"
and the press level history, normally, atdc sensor have around 5.0%-7.0%,
if less or more than the presentase, the machine will appear code C2557.
1. change the adtc sensor gain.
in the service mode, press tech.rep.choice-printer-atdc sensor gain, set the value around 0-255, with the persentase 5.0%-7.0%
2. if the panel warning please exchange pc drum, print dirty, blur or dirty better ur change the drum, developer and transfer roller one go.
before u change the drum, developer and transfer roller, make sure u reset the counter,
in service mode, press counter-special parts counter, select the pc life and the press key c. select maintenance counter and reset also.
after u change the spare parts, do f8 quickly, in service mode
press function-F8, the machine will automaticly run and adjust atdc sensor.
if all already finish, off the machine and wait 10 second and the on again.

i hope this can help u solve ur problem,
regards, ^^,

Bizhub 350 printing blank copy


Does you machine say replace PC drum on the control panel if so need to have the drum developer replaced at the same time. The code is dealing with the image unit the drum is one part the developer section is the bottom part or the sensor at the bottom of the image unit is bad. If developer was replaced did that person use a vacuum clean if so then the static electricity from the vacuum clean destroyed the sensor. NEVER USE A VACUUM to remove old toner. Worse case the main board that the sensor feeds is bad. Also when (if the drum and developer where replace did that person clear the counter for developer and drum. Machine works on info from counters to set certain voltages on certain assy. If the counters are not cleared then the copier thinks there is old developer and old drum in the machine and sets voltages for those units when in reality there are new drum and developer . Also after the developer was replaced was the required F8 run. And no prints/fax or copies where made before the f8 was run. When replacing the developer and drum the fax line and the Ethernet cable need to be removed first even used F8 and counters are done in service mode.

On my bizhub 250 copier, there is a message stating " Please change PC Drum" My question is, How do I change PC Drum?


This is a service technician performed function. The PC Drum unit is changed by removing the whole imaging unit and then removing the drum section and changing it out. At the same time the developer needs to be cleaned from the developing unit and replaced with fresh developer. The drum counter is then reset using the service mode and then the new developer must be calibrated using the F8 mode. So in this machine's case, this is just not a pull out the old unit and plug in a new one.
If you find the "right" service guy, he can come in and reset the drum counter and do the f8 without changing either the drum or the developer. This can sometimes get twice the life out of the unit. Copy quality can degrade a bit towards the end of the second cycle.
If you just reset it your looking at around $100. If you do everything that is called for then the cost is more like $350.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Reset it, start it with the right door open, go to service mode, clear the counters for drum and developer and go to functions menu. Close the right door and start immediately the F8 function. It should work.

Konica/Minolta biz 350 C2557 after replacing DV unit and drum F8


tha minolta di3510 developer unit looks the same as the unit for the konica minolta bizhub 350 but the toner sensor in the minolta unit uses a different voltage range for the toner sensor and it will throw this code make sure you have the correct unit for this machine also you can try this
go back into tech rep mode and change these settings:
select tech rep choice mode
select printer tab
select atdc sensor gain
set the value to about 165
then back all the way out to the ready screen and power the machine off then back on and replenish toner in the user management screen.
