My PF KITMP life is at 90% can I reset this and get more life out of it or will I have to replace at 100%


PF KitMP is the Manual Feed Paper Kit. Normally these count down not up. If it is counting down there is no need to replace it any time soon.

The life on the kits is based on a certain number of pages being fed through it. The rollers wear with every page sent through. These rollers when the kit expires means they are probably worn smooth and not able to pick up the paper anymore. There are ways around the wearing of these rollers so you may not need to replace them as soon as it expires.

On the machine there will be a maintenance option in the menu which includes parts life and resetting of said parts. I would assume that the parts are going to be available for quite some time since most people dispose of the machine before the PFKits run out. So check with your Brother Supplier for parts availability. The kits are not too expensive normally.

What is a PF kit


This is a "Paper Feed" kit and comprises several small pieces including rollers, springs and friction separator pad. Some models have several of these and will be named "PF1 kit", "PF2 kit" etc normally one for the manual feed tray and one for the paper drawer.
If you look at the front of the paper drawer, you will see a spring loaded friction pad in the centre used to hold back all but one sheet of paper. Directly above this in the printer chassis will be a loose rubber roller assembly which grabs the sheet of paper. together, this collection of parts is called a "PF kit".
The printer memory counts the number of pages fed and will count down an estimated useful life of these parts but this is at best a "guess". When they will no longer reliably feed fresh new paper without jamming, they probably need replacing.

Xerox 8560 Maintenance Kit remaining life


You're probably lucky that your machine still works after using non-xerox products, in any event, I'd suggest a new Xerox Extended kit, it's possible the non-xerox product didn't work as intended and your replacement kit wore out faster because of it.

The kit contains a micro chip which "resets' the counter in your machine, as the count comes from the kit, not the machine itself, however, the machine is capable of sensing when the maintenance kit has reached end of life regardless of count.

Additionally, you should check the wiper blade (you can see it when you remove the maintenance kit) for excessive wax buildup which generally means the machine needs service.

These are great printers, very fast for the quality. They can be quite a nightmare to service due to so many systems which have to be exact!
My #1 advice on this product is if you own one, never ever move it while it's hot! or you could face a very expensive repair!

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.

My Microboards PF2 does not print color properly.


The next to last cartridge I installed did not print properly. It seemed like all the colors were not there so I weighed it on a postage scale and it weighed less than another new one I had. I called Microboards. They said to send it to them and they replaced it. It may not be that, but weighing it should give some indication if it is.
