You need to reset the counter. the new pcu should have come with instructions to do this. 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Open the front cover. 3. Press and hold the Continue button (Big silver button with Diamond shape symbol) and turn the printer on. 4. Hold the button down until the last light (error light) is on solid, release the button and close the front cover. 5. When the cover is closed, all the top 3 lights should be on solid. 6. Press the cancel button (triangle symbol) 4 times very slowly until you see the toner low light (second light from top) on solid. 7. Press the continue button and wait until you see the light sequence. 8. Press the cancel button and wait until you see the light sequence. 9. Finally power off the printer and power it back on to exit the configuration mode.

My Ricoh Aficio SPC811DN printer keeps asking me to replace my PCU colour all the colour carteridges are over half full what do i have to rplace


The PCU is the drum unit. There is one for each colour (C,M,Y & K). Each PCU has a 'life' and the machine will ask you to replace it when it has reached the end of its expected life. The PCU life has nothing to do with the amount of toner that you have in the cartridges and they need to be changed independantly.

My Lexmark E250DN : 02 led on the right hand is ON, the system restart and can not print. Any suggestion for help???


The printer is ready to receive and process data. In addition, the toner in the toner cartridge is getting low.


You can press and release Continue button to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. Turn the printer off and remove the toner cartridge, and shake it to extend the life. If toner light is on, replace the toner cartridge.


For further assistance, please call Lexmark Technical Support.

How many pages should lexmark e250dn print?


The manufacturers suggested yield is 3,500 pages. This is assuming 8 1/2 X 11 pages with about 5% toner coverage. A lot of times your toner coverage may be higher and thus yielded pages will be less.

I changed the toner on my Lexmark E250dn and now it has the "!" light on all the time and won't print. It's a new cartridge what is going on?


"!" means error.

Try removing cartridge and installing it again and might be one of the cartridge missing.

Try operating manual. Might helps, there are lots of reason for the error

Lexmark e250dn printer, toner light is flashing, new cartridge


Could be photoconductor at end of life.

You shoul still be able to do a printer test print (press the arrow button).

Look on the printed pagesfor Toner AND Photoconductor.

These show as OK when new or very low count, and 100% when fully used.

If the toner is showing as 100% when you've just replaced it, either the chip is faulty, the wrong one, or if the cartridge is a remanufactured one possibly nor been replaced.

I had the same problem today with my printer. All of a sudden, the first and fourth light lit up. I contacted Lexmark and they said my toner cartrigde needed to be replaced.
The problem is caused by the little chip under the cartridge. I replaced the chip with an old one I had on another cartridge and I got the printer to work again.
You can buy a replacement chip from Lexmark or from a jobber selling replacement cartridge or toner refills.
Hope that helps.

I believe that you are talking about the photoconductor kit this needs replacing when it has reached end of like if you don't replace it you will get poor print quality and risk damaging the printer as well. Below find the lexmark web site with their quick reference guide.
