Replace pc unit problem on Lexmark W840 Laser Printer


Here is an excerpt I found from the W840 user manual. Looks like you need to change the photoconductor kit. Here is the link for the user manual: images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/w840/eng/ug.pdf
To ensure print quality and to avoid damage to the printer, the printer stops operating after the photoconductor kit has reached approximately 60,000 pages (Letter/A4). The message 84 Replace PC Unit is displayed when the printer reaches this point. If the Toner Alarm setting is set to Single or Continuous (default is Off), the printer automatically notifies you before the photoconductor reaches this point and displays the message 84 PC Unit Life Warning. To avoid having the printer stop operating, replace the photoconductor kit when you first receive the 84 PC Unit Life Warning message. Once the photoconductor kit has been replaced, normal printer operation resumes

Warning on Lexmark C534N printer about ''PC Unit Life''


The warning is for the photo conductor units, these are the four units that sit on the transfer belt. If you open the front cover you will see these units sitting on the inside of it when you pull it down. Normally when this message display, not long afterwards the print quality will start to suffer. From experience it's best to replace all four units together, because when one goes the rest seem to follow suit!

Hi Our Lexmark C532n is showing ''PC unit life warning'' what does this mean? Thanks sjames@domusisland.com


The PC unit is the Photoconductor unit, which acts as the 'drum' to transfer toner to the paper. Each color has a separate PC unit. You can buy a 4 pack from lexmark, the part number is C53034X and price is about $120 US (for 4). They are rated for 20,000 pages for their lifespan.
