The imaging unit is that whole assembly that the toners are plugged into inside the front door of your machine. It a consumable unit available at many office supply stores. The instructions to replace the unit are packed inside the box with the new unit.

How can i get my c450 ready?

Ideally, you should replace your cyan image unit to ensure the best print quality but alternatively you can get the image unit chip replaced with another which costs far less than the cost of a new unit. That should solve your problem. But bear in mind that changing the chip alone is just at best temporary because soon you will be having to fight print quality problem.

What is the problem when my konika mainolta bizzhub c450 shows me please replace imaging unit black soon

Imaging units have a limited life span and sounds like yours is getting to the end of it. Sooner or later the printer will stop and demand image unit replacement.

Drum light is on

This usually means that you need to replace the drum on the printer. Most likely it's under 10%, because that's when the warning light comes on. Depending on the printer, you may have 50-150 pages before it completely fails. I would advise to get it replaced soon.

Reminder: A drum is NOT the toner. It's normally a device that may house the toner. Or a separate part.

How to fix transfer belt error in my samsung CLX3160fn

To fix this error, you will need to replace the transfer belt and/or reset the transfer belt count on your printer. If you are happy the the print quality of the printer, then you can try to reset the transfer belt count and that will clear the error. Otherwise you need to get a replacement transfer belt and swap it out before resetting the count.

To remove your existing transfer belt, you need to open the front panel, and remove the imaging unit by pulling the green handle. The belt is located above the imaging unit. Pull the belt down to release and then pull it straight out of the machine. Take your new belt and slide the back into the machine and push the front of the belt up to lock in place. Then you need to reset the belt count.

To do this, follow the steps below.

1. Enter Tech Mode by pressing [MENU] [#] [1] [9] [3] [4]
2. If you do not see the Tech Mode menu press the menu button again. (You need to enter the key sequence quickly.)
3. Select Tech Menu
4. Select DataSetup
5. Arrow to Clear Counts and press OK
6. Enter Password 1934
7. Arrow to Transfer Belt and press OK.

Hope this helps you.

Not sure what the following description means: Drum End Soon Then a second warning flashes: Change Belt Unit Please tell me what this means and what I can do to fix it? Thanks Management

Brother laser printers have both an imaging drum and a transfer belt that have a limited life span they must be replaced from time to time. Very similar to replacing your toner cartridge. purchase a drum and belt for your model and they will have installation instructions with them.

Invalid Imaging Unit and Toners

Sorry about my last post. I didn't realize that it would be placed unter solutions. BUT I did get a resolution from Samsung. They passed me to the advanced team and they suggested I use a special code they gave me to reset all the machine. As I said before the machine was giving me an error that all the toners and the imaging unit were invalid. Samsung said to try this and if it didn't work they would send me a new (refurb) unit. They said to press in sequence <menu><#><1><9><3><start (b&w)> then when the unit cycles it will ask to imput the country, in my case I entered the US. The machine will then reset itself and all the cartridges and imaging unit should be reset to work. IT WORKED!! The machine said to wait while it re-installs the toners. When it did the red warning light turned off and the printer is working great. Hope this helps.
