No screws to take out make sure all the toner levers are locked down so toners cant slide out. kust below the toners is a lever that will open the drum cover when you open this it reveals the drums just slide them out

Where is the drum unit based


The drum unit is based into your printer. You have to open the front cover door and take out the drum unit along with all color toner cartridges.

Fixed: dryer not heating up (Hoover vision hd 381)

Just fixed a hoover vision hd 381 tumble dryer. Thanks to the help on this site and others. Thought I would share my experience here. Problem was tumbledryer not getting hot. Traced it fairly quickly to a blown heating element. Took the back heater cover off (bulging silver panel), unscrewed heater, peered inside and it was somewhat charred (tested the thermostats which were fine). Dryer works now.

The really tricky thing was unplugging the heating element to replace it. The plugs are located inside the main housing.

However, the advice found on much of the internet to how to do this is incorrect. In particular the advice to remove the drum is not correct.

The way you access the plugs is by pulling the main heating wire through the hole in the unit, and feeding the plugs through one by one.

Then you can simply unplug the old one, plug in the new one.

Two things are necessary for this:
i) Remove the rubber collar keeping the main wire secure in the hole into the main unit.
ii) Pushing the plastic grommet through the small hole in the main unit. This grommet immobilises the main wire - you won't feed it through without it being released. You'll see quickly what this looks like on the replacement heater you should already have. The white plastic grommet protrudes a little out of the back of the unit close to where the heating wire enters the unit. Pinch it with a pair of pliers and push it back into the unit. The wire will then be free to pull through, and one plug at a time will fit through till you have all four. Then just pull the plugs off (pushing the new ones on requires quite alot of force).

In fact it is not necessary to strip down the unit at all to do this, apart from one thing: putting the grommet back for the new heater. It needs to be pushed from the inside. This probably isn't strictly necessary (I say probably), but I did it anyway. I suspect the grommet is there so that if the heater hangs free, it doesn't pull the wire up and stress the plugs. But I wanted to put the thing back exactly like I found it.

However, you still don't need to take the drum out to do this. You do however need to take the plastic mounting off that supports the drum. Then you can reach in with your hand and manouver the grommet into place.

So the repair ideally should be firstly to replace the heater in the way described above. Then put the cover back on as you'll need the unit on its back later.

Briefly, instructions for stripping down the unit:
i) Unscrew the 3 top screws located on the back of the unit holding the top of the unit on. Slide the top back and lift it off.

ii) Disconnect the door by undoing the allen key screws. Once these are off, lift the door off.

iii) Unscrew the plastic faceplate from the top (2 screws), to reveal two of 8 screws holding the metal front in place. I wired the plastic faceplate (with control knobs) onto the unit so I could still access these 2 screws, without the faceplate hanging free and risking disconnecting something.

iv) Unscrew the remaining 6 screws (4 near the rubber seal, 2 at the very bottom). Remove the rubber seal carefully.

v) Lift the metal front off, and disconnect the wires (keep track of which goes where!) Place the machine on its back (support it with blocks where the bulging heating element is).

vi) Unscrew the four nuts holding the plastic mounting which supports the drum.

vii) Slide the plastic mounting up by about 10mm and hinge it out from the bottom. This lifts the felt seal off the drum. The machine needs to be on its back so the drum which is now only held on to the back plate doesn't stress itself under its own weight. Make sure you know where the wires need to be fed. I took videos and pictures on my phone at each step.

viii) It should now be possible to reach in past the drum and click the grommet back in place.

cheers

We have an HP Color Laserjet 2840 printer in our office. We were low on our black ink drum, bought a new drum and installed it. Copies are coming out perfectly but the "replace black...


The 2840 is a slightly different sort of machine when it comes to supplies. There is a main imaging drum unit which works for all four colors, and then there of course are the 4 colors. If the unit was asking for a drum unit then you should have instaled a Q3964A. It is entirely possible that your drum unit and black cartridge both expired at the same time, in which case, you need a black toner cartridge now.

If you have print quality problems, clean the drum unit as follows:

1.Turn off the printer power switch. Press the front cover release button and then open the front cover.

2.Hold the green handle of the drum unit. Lift the drum unit up and then pull it out until it stops.

3.Release the gray lock lever (1) that is on the left side of the printer. Pull the drum unit completely out of the printer using the green handles on the drum unit.

  • We recommend that you place the drum unit on a clean, flat surface with a piece of disposable paper underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
  • Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
  • Hold the handles of the drum unit when you carry it. DO NOT hold the sides of the drum unit.
4.Hold the handle of the toner cartridge and pull it out of the drum unit. Repeat this for all the toner cartridges.

5.Turn the drum unit over by holding the handle. Make sure that the four drum unit gears are on the left side and the drum unit gear "1" is located furthest away from you. The numbers can be found on the drum unit gear.

We recommend that you place the drum unit on a clean, flat surface with a piece of disposable paper underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.

6.See the print sample to identify the color causing the problem. The color of the spots is the color of the drum you should clean. For example, if the spots are cyan, you should clean the drum for cyan. Put the print sample in front of the drum, and find the exact position of the poor print.

7.Turn the drum unit gear toward you by hand while looking at the surface of the drum (1).

8.When you have found the mark on the drum that matches the print sample, hold the middle of a cotton swab and wipe the surface of the drum gently until the dust or paper powder on the surface comes off.

Caution DO NOT clean the surface of the photosensitive drum with a sharp object.

9.Turn the drum unit gear toward you by hand to return it to the home position. The home position of each drum can be identified by matching the number on the drum unit gear to the same number on the left side of the drum unit.

10.Make sure that the number on each of the four drum unit gears matches the corresponding number on the side of the drum unit.

11.Using the green handles turn the drum unit back over.

12.Hold the handle of the toner cartridge and slide the toner cartridge into the drum unit. Make sure that you match the toner cartridge color to the same color label on the drum unit, and make sure that you fold down the toner cartridge handle (1) once the toner cartridge is in place. Repeat this for all the toner cartridges.

13.Put the drum unit back in the printer as follows.
  1. Make sure that the gray lock lever (1) is in the up position and put the drum unit in the printer. Push down the gray lock lever (1).
When you put the drum unit in the printer, match the green guides (1) of the drum unit handle to the green arrows (2) on both sides of the machine.

2.Push the drum unit in until it stops.

14.Close the front cover.

It tells me to replace the imaging unit i did but it still is telling me to replace the imaging unit any tips on how to resolve this?


sorry about my last reply. you have to replace the selenium DRUM, its a big drum inside the printer under the toner. It cost 150USD... kinda hate Samsung right?

you can also just take it out, shake it left to right several times and put it back and see if you still get the error.

"Pull down the front cover and you have access to the four toner cartridges, which are lined up, one above the other, inside. Unlike many recent colour laser designs, the drum unit is separate from each of these cartridges and has a different lifespan, as does the toner waste bottle, which also needs replacing periodically. "

Samsung has a chip that counts the number of prints you do. After X prints, it wil make you change the toner even if you do not need to. Also you have to replace the selenium drum and also the waste toner bin... I HATE SAMSUMG from now on... CHEATERS

How to work the hoover vision hd vhv 381 tumble dryer?


This may not be exactly what you want, but is useful information for anyone wanting to work on their hoover dryer, vision hd vhc 381 dryer.

How do you remove the drum unit on a bizhub C203


This machine has more than one drum unit, its a color machine. You have three color and one black as well as 4 developer units. You need to know which one needs to be removed. Shut the machine down unplug it from the wall. The upper units are the drums, which should easily slide out. If I remember correctly you have to flip up a clip on the front of each drum unit first to slide the drum out.

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt


Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!
