I have same printer and C1100 also.I looked for the photoconductor parts.Opened photoconductor unit in pieces n reassembled it. there are 2 parts where useless toner is kept in PCU empty them by unscrewing these two parts.The the photoconductor rod is very sensitive and if it needs to be changed I advice buy if not new then refurbished one complete PCU.I know someone who do refurbished PCu and in it uses new photoconductor rod.other then Photocconductor rod all is long life if you empty those two pockets in PCU.refurbished will cost you 70 GBP and if you are looking for that part then so far I am unable to locate it in the market n 70 GBP is not bad for almost new like PCU.

To check whether the problem is with the printer or the PCU, if possible either try another PCU in the printer, or test the PCU in another printer you know to be working.

I think I it should work.

Printer displaying "Service Req E511" and wont print


Error E511 relates to the PCU (not detecting the transfer belt rotating).
This appears to be common. Sometimes the belt can slide on the rollers to the left, thus the square metallic reflective spot on the belt does not pass over the TR0 sensor, no amount of cleaning will cure this, you either need to strip the top cover off hte PCU (6screws) and pull the belt back over to the left or replace the PCU all together. BTW PCU stands for Photoconductor Unit if you didn't know.

Ghost image on Epson Acculaser C4000


Ghosting can be caused by several components: 2nd BTR transfer roller, Photoconductor Unit (PCU) or the Fuser unit. The most likely is the PCU contacts being dirty, caused by toner getting between them. Open the front of the printer (cover B) and lift out the photoconductor. Clean all of the metal contacts down the sides of the PCU with a cloth and wipe out any loose toner from inside the printer and give the contacts inside the printer on the R/H side a good clean. Replace the PCU and close the front cover.
Hopefully all will now be well, if not open cover A and clean the transfer roller on the inside of the cover. If problem persists you will need to get a Tech out to look further as without seeing the printer it is pretty hard to diagnose.
Good luck.

Error e520


E520 is a 2nd BTR sensor error. It is usually caused by waste toner getting on the sensor. Turn off the printer and open the top panel. Lift up the orange handle to unlock the PCU and remove the PCU by lifting it up using the carry handle. Be careful with the PCU drum as it is easily scratched and avoid bright light. Inside the printer on the rear "wall" is a spring loaded cover which can be pushed down to uncover the sensor. It will stick in the down position, do NOT try to force it up again (it will spring back into the right position when the PCU is refitted). Give the sensor a wipe with a soft cloth and refit the PCU. Close the lid and turn back on, with luck all will now be well. If you still have the same error it is time to get proffessional help unless you are experienced at testing voltages and taking printers apart.

Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate this solution.

Changed the photoconductor unit on epson aculaser c1100


Hi, the E511 is caused by the printer not "sensing" rotation of the PCU drum & transfer belt (TRO Sensor error). It could be the PCU was faulty. First thing to try is to open the top cover and remove the PCU. Be careful not to expose the drum to bright light, avoid touching it if possible and be very careful not to scratch it. Using thumb pressure at the edges of the drum check it rotates. On the underside of the PCU is a little cut-out window, rotate the transfer belt until you see a little silver square appear. Give this a good clean with a soft cloth. Inside the printer you will see a little sensor sticking up (TRO Sensor) that aligns with this cut-out, give this a clean too. Hopefully your problem is now fixed.

Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Epson ACULASER CX11NF we have to replace the PCU every 3 months,


The photoconductor (PCU) is used whenever you print anything. They should last between 10,000 copies (colour) and 20,000 copies (black only), so roughly 15,000 pages. If yours is going through them quicker it could indicate that there is a problem, try giving Epson Customer support a call and ask for advice.

ACULASER CX11NF Photoconductor reset - chip?


The reset chip will not provide you with a long term solution to your problem. The photoconductor unit is now full of waste toner and the photoconductive drum, prime charge roller and wiper blade are all worn, this is the cause of the message. Your only real and the correct solution is to replace the Photoconductor unit with a new one. Remember that this is part of the consumable set for this printer and is therefor costed in as part of the cost per page.
Should you proceed with the replacement chip, you will be opening yourself to deminishing quality print and eventual failure of the unit.
