It means that it's time to take the printer to a qualified technician, to do a "tune-up" of the printer. Compare it to the "check engine" light in the dashboard of newer automobiles.

True Treadmill Errors and Service Messages
  • The True 600, 700, 725 and 750 series treadmills are equipped with built-in diagnostics and maintenance reminders that display either an error message or service message as they occur.
  • The error messages that may be displayed by the built-in diagnostics are as follows:
    • E1:INCLINE
      • This means that the incline is moving when it has not been commanded to.
    • E1:MINIMUM
      • This is a minimum incline calibrating error that can be cleared by calibrating the incline.
    • E1:RANGE
      • This means the difference between the treadmills zero position and maximum incline is not sufficient.
    • E1:STALL
      • This means that the incline is not moving when it has been commanded to.
    • E2:OVERSPEED
      • This occurs when acceleration greater than 2.1 mph occurs as this is greater acceleration than anticipated.
    • E2:CAL
      • This means feedback cannot reduce or increase speed to target and error can be cleared by calibrating treadmill.
    • E3:EEPROM
      • This error happens when a data error is detected on the EEprom. The control panel needs replaced if this error occurs.
    • E5:SENSOR
      • This error occurs when there is no speed or RPM feedback detected from speed sensor.
  • The service messages that may be displayed by the built-in maintenance reminders are as follows:
    • S1:LUBE
      • This service message displays when it is time for inspection of the deck lubrication system.
    • S2:CLEAN
      • This service message displays every 500 miles and is your prompt to clean the treadmill.
    • S3:MOTOR
      • This service message displays every 2500 hours and is your prompt to check the motor brushes.

HOW I WILL GO IN SERVICE MODE OF A PRINTER


Clearing the Maintenance Count and Service Message: HP LaserJets servicepin.jpg
If the display panel on your HP LaserJet reads "Perform Printer Maintenance", "Perform User Maintenance", "Maintenance Kit Low", "Maintenance Kit Very Low", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count.

Displays a message "perform printer maintenance" What maintenance am I supposed to do?


This means that the printer is due for it's scheduled maintenance. Things like paper feed rollers, separation roller, transfer roller and fusing unit are due. Now if I were you I would just ignore it as long as you are not having a lot of jamming problems or double imaging/print rubbing off issues. I have seen these HP's run way past the maintenance schedule. You will do absolutely no harm if you continue to run it. The parts that are due to be replaced will continue to wear and eventually you may have to do at least some or all of the maintenance but for now I would not worry about it at all unless like I said you are having problems. As a side note I work on HP laser printers for school districts that do not want to spend money on printers so I have seen lots of these printers with the "perform maintenance" indicators on for a year or more with no problems.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What does perform service message mean?


This is a oil change reminder. Nothing fancy about, when you get your oil change go into the menu and click reset counter and it will go off. If there was something wrong with your car the check engine light would come on.

We have a Phaser 8560 Printer and we are getting the message "maintenance kit low" message. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


This will require servicing:
The maintenance kit contains a maintenance roller that keeps the surface of the Imaging Drum clean and oiled.
NOTE: Order a new maintenance kit when the Display Screen displays a message that the maintenance kit is low. Replace the kit when the Display Screen prompts you to replace the maintenance kit. Both a Standard Maintenance Kit and an Extended Maintenance Kit are available for the Phaser 8550 and 8560; however, only a Standard Maintenance Kit is available for the Phaser 8500. An Extended Maintenance Kit will not be functional with the Phaser 8500.

WARNING: The printer's interior may be hot! Do not touch the hot surfaces.

Once you have the part: instructions:
  1. Open the door on the right side of the printer.
  2. Grasp the maintenance kit (labeled A) from the maintenance kit slot and pull the kit completely out of the printer.
  3. Insert a new maintenance kit and push the kit completely into the maintenance kit slot. Follow the illustrated instructions included with the maintenance kit for full installation and disposal information.
  4. Close the door.
This will be on the right side of the printer.
This will need to be replace every 10,000 sheets of paper.

  1. Close the door.

Getting an display in the printer.


If you have the manual there is probably a section about this. It does sound like some parts may be wearing out and the printer is asking for new ones. Check out this link: http://www.printertechs.com/tech/maintcount.php A snip from the info there: If the display panel on your HP laserjet reads "perform printer maintenance", "perform user maintenance", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count. For example the laserjet 4000 has a 200,000 page maintenance interval. Once you reach 200,000 pages the error message appears and you need to reset the maintenance count to zero to make the message go away.
