Question about Lexmark E232 Laser Printer

Same problem but on a non-display e250

I replaced the photoconductor on an e250 model without the LCD displayand the printer will not acknowledge the new photoconductor. I tried a second brand new one as well. Same thing. Can you tell me how to reset the photoconductor counter on a model without the LCD display?

Thanks in advance!

    Solved it myself. Instructions below worked like a charm for me with just the first three steps.

    Step Action

    1 With the printer powered on, open the front door/cover.

    2 Press and hold the cancel button () until all the lights flash. This indicates that the photoconductor page count has been reset.

    3 Let go of the button and close the front door/cover.

    4 If this does not clear the PC Life Warning or Replace Photoconductor message, power off the printer and attempt this procedure again from step 1. 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 and is not damaged in any way. If the photoconductor unit was refurbished by a third party or appears to be damaged, try replacing it before seeking service on the printer.

    If the error message persists, the printer may require service to correct the issue. Contact Lexmark Technical Support for more information.

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: images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/w840/eng/ug.pdf
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

Hi Ya! I was looking out for the solution of the Epson 1400 printer having black toner shows pop-up message; which displays "Consumables near end of service life". "Prepare the following...


If a consumable product reaches the end of its service life, the product stops printing and displays the following messages in the LCD panel or the window of EPSON Status Monitor 3. When this happens, the product cannot resume printing until you replace the depleted consumable products.

The photoconductor unit comes to the end of its service life. Even if this message is displayed in the LCD panel, you can continue to print for a short time by pressing the B&W Start or Color Start button on the control panel. The message in the LCD panel changes from Replace Photoconductor to Worn Photoconductor.

What is a photoconductor?


Otherwise known as the drum kit. Quite often the laser printer will tell you (on the LCD display) that you need to replace the photoconductor, but the price list will have no such thing. It will however usually list a Drum Kit.

Install photoconductor


the photoconductor is commenly refered to as the "drum" .. its the cylindrical part that picks up and transfers the toner to the paper .. the error message might be telling you its time to replace the drum (they do wear out) or perhaps its not detecting the fact that it is in place .. the photo conductor drum is user replacable so it comes out without too much trouble .. sometimes its part of the replacable toner tank .. it would get automatically replaced when you change toner in that case .. be very careful with the photoconductor drum .. any scratches, finger prints or other damage will show up in the printed output .. dont expose it to bright light ...
