Re: PRINTED PAGES ARE BLANK AFTER REPLACING...
The machine should automatically recognize the new PCU. Blank copies would lead me to think you have further problems, charge corona? transfer issues? If you try to make a copy and open the front door real fast when the paper should be at the transfer unit, is there an toner image showing on the drum? If yes, then you have charge but not getting transfer. This is a hard problem to troubleshoot without seeing machine. Anyway good luck, please rate this. Thanks ..... Wait... just had a thought. On the shaft, on the inside of the rear frame, that drives the drum there is a coupling that is spring loaded. Sometimes the shaft gets gunked up and coupling does not pop out not connecting to the PCU, which could cause blank copies and will still say replace pcu. You could add a couple of drops of oil to that shaft to loosen it up if that's the case.

THE MAINTENANCE PROMPT COULD BE TURNED OFF BUT THAT IS AGAINST THE MANUFACTUREERS RECOMENDATION. THE PCU
WOULD LAST A LITTLE LONGER BUT IT WILL START DUMPING TONER AND DEVELOPER IN TRAY1 IF IT ISNT ALREADY THAT JUST ADDS TO THE CLEANUP TIME AND COST THE PCU WAS DESIGNED TO MAKE 60,000 PAGES.
take all paper out. check to see if any paper is jammed in the rollers
go to application folder for your computer, dbl click icon for make of printer, for settings, check to ensure everything is order.
lastly, check make of printer trouble shooting web site for more information
hope this helps, good luck.
Hi, try the following. Send a print job of a few pages and when the first page comes out then open the front cover of the printer like if you were going to remove the toner. Remove the toner and look at the Photoconductor. If the image in the photoconductor is complete, no half of the print image and no blurring on the other half then the problem is your Transfer roller. Could be that is not installed properly or needs replacement it could also be that the High Voltage power supply (HVPS) is not sending enough charge to the transfer. If the image of the photoconductor is appearing just like the one printed on paper then the problem could be the charge roller or the HVPS.
IF you replaced the entire PCU, make sure you pulled the plastic tabs from the unit and removed the protective paper from the drum area. I don't remember if the new PCU comes with developer pre-installed. If you replaced the drum/developer, it is common for the lower developer unit drive gears to wear down and break off some of their teeth.
