    The replace Photoconductor warning is on, and the printouts have streaking lengthwise. Is the photoconductor the cause of the streaking?

The internal alarm for the 45k interval has been reached therefore the machine warns it needs a new drum... considering the streaks its best you change it but it should be done by a tech cause although it is pretty easy to replace the internal counter has to be pushed forward for the next 45k

REPLACE PHOTOCONDUCTOR


Yes. Replace the photoconductor (drum). You will find them on the net but have the headache tablets close by when you see the prices. It probably cheaper to buy a new machine than just the photoconductor.

The kill chip on my C1100 is actually on the side of the photoconductor. Open the top lid, pull up the orange handle on the right, and pull the photoconductor out. The killer chip is on the left hand side of the photoconductor. It is possible to buy new chips for about £15. I tried this, and it quickly died :( genuine photoconductors should last for thousands of pages, so are worth the money.

You really need to keep an eye on the photoconductor gauge on the printer screen on your computer. Mine got very low, and I hadn't noticed. Best to be prepared !

Replace Photoconductor


There are several "doors" on the C1100. You need to open the door on the top. You will see an orange handle on top of the photoconductor, to lift it out. You can't lift it out, until you've pulled the orange handle on the far right up first. You then need to buy a new photoconductor - these are £150 - £180 ish. There are cheaper solutions, such as just replacing the "killer chip", which tells the printer how many sheets you've printed, but in my experience, the replacement chips soon become faulty, and render the printer useless. I know it sounds a lot of money to replace the photoconductor, but you need to do a lot of printing before it's time to replace it.
