Solution #1 above is WRONG. I suspect it was written by an epson consumables sales rep.
The photo conductor has a Kill chip that disables the PCU after a shamefully short number of copies. This chip can be replaced for about 30 pounds sterling. Google for it.

You can get a considerable extension in the use of the PCU, but it will have to be replaced at some point.

I even had the blue roller refurbed by Total Image Direct near London, UK. That was also about 30 quid.

I'm on my 3rd or 4th set of catridges (took over a year before people would produce refills for them though) and still on the first Photo conductor.

Nope. If it says it wants a new one, it needs a new one. If you try to extend the usage from the old one you will end up with rubbish prints and possible problems in other areas.

Bite the bullet and give it a new one.

After changing the black cartridge of epson aculaser c1100, a message flashed: Service Req E511


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

The message E 511: Service Required is commonly due to the Photo Conductor Unit's tabs getting stuck. So the first thing we need to do is to remove the PHoto Conductor Unit. Here are the step to remove the Photo Conductor Unit off of your EPSON Aculaser C1100.

1. Turn the printer on, and open cover B.

2. Raise the yellow lever inside cover B.

3. Remove the photoconductor unit.

4. Check the white tabs on the underside of the photoconductor unit. These are spring-loaded plastic tabs that should depress when you press and release it. If the white tabs no longer spring back you need to replace the photoconductor unit.

After removing or ultimately replacing the photoconductor unit, please follow the step by step giude on how to remove the photoconductor unit in reverse order.

Hi

Try taking out all toners and reinstall them. Turn on unit, without Photoconductor, wait till you get error install photoconductor. Insert photoconductor and try printing again.

Hope this helps

Colors print blurred


I had that problem too. The weird thing was if I printed in black and white, the printing was fine. For me it looks like it was a new defective photoconductor unit. When I stuck the old one back in, no problem but my old one was producing 4 color dots all the way down the middle of the page. I went on eBay and brought a re-manufactured one (buy at your own risk) and the color printing was perfect again.

Replacement parts


I have same printer and C1100 also.I looked for the photoconductor parts.Opened photoconductor unit in pieces n reassembled it. there are 2 parts where useless toner is kept in PCU empty them by unscrewing these two parts.The the photoconductor rod is very sensitive and if it needs to be changed I advice buy if not new then refurbished one complete PCU.I know someone who do refurbished PCu and in it uses new photoconductor rod.other then Photocconductor rod all is long life if you empty those two pockets in PCU.refurbished will cost you 70 GBP and if you are looking for that part then so far I am unable to locate it in the market n 70 GBP is not bad for almost new like PCU.

Replace Photoconductor


There are several "doors" on the C1100. You need to open the door on the top. You will see an orange handle on top of the photoconductor, to lift it out. You can't lift it out, until you've pulled the orange handle on the far right up first. You then need to buy a new photoconductor - these are £150 - £180 ish. There are cheaper solutions, such as just replacing the "killer chip", which tells the printer how many sheets you've printed, but in my experience, the replacement chips soon become faulty, and render the printer useless. I know it sounds a lot of money to replace the photoconductor, but you need to do a lot of printing before it's time to replace it.
