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.

How do I change the drum on a bizhub 3510


First ensure fax line and and network cable is disconnected (If no FAX or network dont worry) dont want any print jobs or faxs arriving before you run Developer and drum checks after replaceing both.. Second go to the service mode and clear the drum and developer counters touch end then power off the using main power switch left hand side rear. You will be replacing both do not just replace the drum. Ensure your drum comes with what is called a drum cleaning blade, along with your developer. Secondly open the right side door and remove the Image unit. Dissamabley the image unit four silver screws two per side. Then pull each side apart from the base and lift up. T change developer remove the 3 alummin screws fro the base top. Then dump the old developer DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER THE STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL DESTROY THE SENSOR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DEVELOPER UNIT!!!!!!!!!! Turn the gears on the side so that large roller that runs along th\e front of the developer unit turns downward. keep turing it unit all of the old developer is out. DO NOT USE WATER OR WET RAGS to cleanup use a brush. Add your new developer. One Bag only. Reassamable. Now for the Drum. Remove both side covers one side has small plasitic been so be careful. Reove drum remove three screws to remove old cleaning blade this section you can use a vacuum clean turn the gears to get the hold section clean. install the new cleaning blade and drum DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM use only the side gears. Replace the SCTRON Grid and Charge Corona UNIT. REassaembly Image Unit.Then POwer up the machine, Enter service mode and run Fuction F8. Do not may copies or prints before this or you will have to buy new developer again.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO THIS?????? HAVE SERVICE TECH COME OUT AND DO THIS

First get into service mode. Utility/Counter then meter count then check details. Then Stop 00 stop 01. Counters. Clear Drum and Developer. Then touch end do not exit all the way out of service mode. Turn off the machine using the main on/off rear of machine left hand side. Then remove the image cart. and replace the drum and developer. then turn machine on reenter service mode. Run F-8 found under Function. Do not print copy or allow fax to print before this is done. Or you will have to replace the developer again.

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..

No. The CRUM is integral to the Drum Cartridge. The only way would be to swap CRUM from a cartridge that failed for a reason other that it reached end of life.
