Replace pc unit problem on Lexmark W840 Laser Printer

Here is an excerpt I found from the W840 user manual. Looks like you need to change the photoconductor kit. Here is the link for the user manual:
To ensure print quality and to avoid damage to the printer, the printer stops operating after the photoconductor kit has reached approximately 60,000 pages (Letter/A4). The message 84 Replace PC Unit is displayed when the printer reaches this point. If the Toner Alarm setting is set to Single or Continuous (default is Off), the printer automatically notifies you before the photoconductor reaches this point and displays the message 84 PC Unit Life Warning. To avoid having the printer stop operating, replace the photoconductor kit when you first receive the 84 PC Unit Life Warning message. Once the photoconductor kit has been replaced, normal printer operation resumes

It show 84 replace photoconductor

84 replace photoconductor on the display indicates that the photoconductor has reached its expected life rating. You may continue to print but will be at risk for developing print quality issues. It is recommended that photoconductor unit be replaced. After replacing a photoconductor unit, you will also need to manually reset the PC counter, Thanks

IF you replaced the entire PCU, make sure you pulled the plastic tabs from the unit and removed the protective paper from the drum area. I don't remember if the new PCU comes with developer pre-installed.
If you replaced the drum/developer, it is common for the lower developer unit drive gears to wear down and break off some of their teeth.

Hope this helps.

I have a Lexmark E352dn printer. The screen showed that the Photoconductor needed replacing which I have done. However the screen still shows " 84 Replace Photoconductor " I have removed and...

the problem is that you need to reset the counter of the photoconductor unit. From the official site of lexmark, i find this solution.
Step Action 1 Enter the printer's Configuration menu:
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. On the printer's operator panel, press and hold the select button (pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg) and the back button (pattlnk_4122007_1833-back%20button%20e350_e352_e450.gif).
  3. Power the printer back on while keeping both these buttons held down.
  4. When you see the messages Performing Self Test or Busy on the printer screen, you can release both buttons.
  5. If the printer has successfully entered configuration mode, you will see a new menu with the heading CONFIG MENU at the top of the screen.
2 Press the right arrow button (pattlnk_4122007_1837-right_arrow.jpg) until you see Reset PC Cnt. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg once. You will see Reset. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg again.
The printer will display a Resetting PC Count Value message and go back to the previous screen.
3 Press pattlnk_4122007_1833-back%20button%20e350_e352_e450.gif once. 4 Press pattlnk_4122007_191-left_arrow.jpg or pattlnk_4122007_1837-right_arrow.jpg on the operator panel until you see Exit Config Menu. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg once. Selecting this will cause the printer to reboot.

If the counter has been reset correctly, the printer should return to a Ready prompt.
5 If this does not clear the PC Life Warning or Replace Photoconductor message, power off the printer and attempt this entire procedure again. If the error remains after two attempts, confirm that:
  • The correct photoconductor unit is installed. The part number on the photoconductor unit should be E250X22G. If it is not, install the correct photoconductor unit into the printer.
  • The photoconductor unit has not been refurbished by a third party or is not damaged in any way. If the photoconductor unit was refurbished by a third party or appears to be damaged, try replacing it again before seeking service on the printer.
If the error persists, the printer may require service to correct the issue. Contact Lexmark Technical Support for more information.
