Answering time on the internet varies from 500 - 1000 hours. According to this website the golden rule is 1000 hours.

I recently rang Sony uk who told me the time was 1400 hours because these cameras are "a real workhorse."

Personally, I'd say it came down to how the camera was kept, treated and used over its lifespan. Was it used in humid conditions? Or perhaps in the derset?

The better its owner, the better the camera most likely.

I just changed the oil and filter on my LX420 twin cam how do I get the blinking light to go out. Its a 2006


  • The Service Monitor meter contains a service minder function that utilizes the 4-digit LCD display.
  • The letters "CHG" will display followed by the letters "OIL" and then followed by the meter accumulated time.
  • CHG"/"OIL"/TIME will alternate on the display for five (5) minutes after the meter reaches 50 hours.
  • While the LCD is displaying the "CHG"/"OIL"/TIME letters, the red LED "oil symbol" will also be flashing for the entire five (5) minutes.
The display will also flash as described above for five (5) minutes every time the tractor has been started during the maintenance time interval. The interval will occur every 50 hours and will be in effect for two (2) hours.( Example: this feature will display from 50-52 hrs., 100-102 hrs., 150-152 hrs etc...)
THE METER DISPLAY WILL RESET TO NORMAL AUTOMATICALLY, after the reminder maintenance time interval of two (2) hours. There is no method of manually re-setting this Service Monitor gauge.

The meter on our Savin increased 5x the normal color reading in one month and we haven't used the copier any more than normal. Our paper consumption hasn't gone up, nor our toner consumption....


Could it ???? That's a good question... I have seen the meter stop working. I don't know, but did anyone try to manually change the hard counter? Maybe your service company may have your copier set in service mode to click twice for 11 x 17 or for two sided copies? One test you can do is to write down the meter reading and make ten copies and recheck the meter. If it clicks ten times, the meter is working and try making four 11 x 17 copies and look at the meter to see if it clicked four times. If the meter is working correctly, your service company is ripping you off or they are billing the wrong company.......

CLEAR DRUM UNIT COUNTER IN BIZHUB 200


Service mode, but if you clear the counter without replacing the drum image problems and code can appear on the machine. Machine bases certain voltages on certain assy's. for example drum and developer based on what the counter says because that is the only way the copier knows it got a new drum and or developer..

My dryer is driving me out of the house!!!


It's most likely not the belt. It's either the tension pulley whereas the bearing has gone bad. Or it's the rear drum bearing. The drum sits in this saddle type bearing and when it goes bad it can drop the drum and you can be rubbing metal on metal.
I would let a service tech take care of it. Should be about $100.00 for service call and parts. He could do it in about an hour or less.
Chances are you won't get anyone to sell you the parts either. They got the market cornered. Most places only sell to techs.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.
