This is the fuser reset procedure from page 563 of the service manual:
5.1 Resetting the Periodical Maintenance Parts Life
? Resetting the Life Counter of the Fuser Unit
This function allows you to reset the page counter of the fuser unit and increase the number
of replacement times by one.
(1) Press the  and  keys at the same time in the ready state.
The "Reset Menu" will appear on the LCD.
(2) Press the [ ] button a few times to select "Fuser".
(3) Press the [OK] button.
The "1. Reset / 2. Exit" will appear on the LCD.
(4) Press the  key when resetting the life counter of the fuser unit. Press the  key if not
(5) The "Accepted" will appear on the LCD if pressing the  key. The page counter of the
fuser unit is reset, and the number of replacement times is increased by one. Then, the
machine returns to the ready state. If pressing the  key, the machine do not reset the
page counter and the "Fuser" will appear on the LCD.
Did you replace the fuser with a new Lexmark fuser or a refurbished unit? The original Lexmark units have a chip in them that resets the counter when installed. However this only works the first time the fuser is installed. If you install a used fuser in a different printer it will not reset the counter.
When you install a replacement Transfer belt (it has it's own counter chip) that resets the transfer belt pagecount, and as a result clears any transfer belt life related warnings/errors.
When you install a REPLACEMENT Fuser (that has it's own counter chip) that resets the fuser pagecount, and as a result clears any fuser life related warnings/errors.
PLEASE NOTE - The fuser supplied with the DELL 3130 when new DOES NOPT have a counter chip - the fuser life warnigs are triggered by the printer pagecount. Installing a fuser from another printer (even if it has a ZERO pagecount WILL NOT reset the fuser pagecount (because the 'ship with' fuser has no counter chip.
The original fuser supplied with the printer DOES NOT have a counter chip. Instead, the PRINTER assumes that when the number of pages printed reaches the level at which the fuser needs to be replaced, the printer issued the REPLACE FUSER message.
If you replace the fuser with another that has come OUT OF a new printer (i.e. a 'PULL' from a new unused printer), since it has no counter chip of it's own, the printer assumes the fuser pagecount is the same as the printer pagecount (because there is no information to read from a fuser chip), and still wants the fuser to be replaced.
A new REPLACEMENT fuser from XEROX, or a CORRECTLY refurbished fuser WILL have a counter chip, and therefore clear the REPLACE FUSER message.
It all depends on which model printer you have, which you didn't specify. Normally fusers don't need to be reset though. Search the manufacturer's website to see if you can find the manual, which should contain information on how to reset consumable counters.
If you want to clear the fuser message you have to be sure you replaced the fuser web. Then go to 25 => counter clear(items 13)=> Clear fuser counter or 36=>counter clear(items 8)=>Clear fuser counter.
