When I switch on my photocopier machine it display "PM CALL" What does it mean

It means that the copier is due for it's PM or Preventative Maintenance. All copiers have a PM schedule so that every so many copies certain parts called "consumables" come due for replacement. These are things like Drum, Developer, Fusing Rollers, Etc. If you really depend on your copier and finances are not an issue I would call your servicing company and have them come perform what ever maintenance is required. If this is not the case there there is no harm in continuing to use the machine. Worst case scenario is that you may see a drop off over time in copy quality or you may experience more jamming.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What does the red triangle mean on the copier please

It helps to know the make and model. Also, is the copier still working? If it is still working it may just be a P.M. counter.

Ask you service guy if he can or knows how to rebiuld your IU / drum unit. You can still get parts for that copier you probly need a new OPC drum and cleaning blade and a developer change. I belive they should last for 80k copies more or less. Are you getting black lines and bad copy quility? If not you may just have the PM / IU light ON or it is asking for a PM? It is just a counter in the copier that say's it time to replace the PM parts. They may have been replaced , but the counter was not reset. On a final note, this is one model in a long line of the same machines with alot of the same parts. I don't think it is hard to find these parts. You can buy them on line.. Under copier part....
Order the parts your self and save money and have them install them... Good Luck
