PC life warning on X342n indicates that the photoconductor (pc) unit has nearly reached it's rated life. You can still continue printing but will be at risk for developing print quality issues. It is advisable that pc unit be replaced. Now, when you replace the pc unit you will also need to manually reset the pc page counter as well. Thanks.

PC life warning


This means that the photoconductor has reached the end of life; on other printers, this is called the drum. It transfers the toner onto the page during printing so that it will fuse to the paper. The replacement is $70 from Lexmark: http://www.lexmark.com/US/en/view/Ink/Toner%20&%20Supplies/X340,-X342-Photoconductor-Kit/catId=cat170003-category&prodId=3599-product . The replacement should last about 30000 pages.

To replace the unit after you get a replacement, open the front cover and pull out the print cartridge assembly by the handle. Put the assembly on a flat surface. Remove the toner cartridge by pressing the button on the assembly and pulling on the handle. Open the new photoconductor kit and snap the toner cartridge into place on it. Then slide the new assembly into the printer. The steps are shown here: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=answerlink&userlocale=en_US&segment=SUPPORT&locale=en&url=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.lexmark.com%2Findex%3Fpage%3Dcontent%26id%3DSO4365%26actp%3Dsearch%26viewlocale%3Den_US&productCode=&answerid=16777217&searchid=1397780403561 .

After installing this, you need to reset the photoconductor counter.
With the printer on, open the front cover and press and hold Stop for 5+ seconds. When you see Resetting PC Counter release the Stop button. Close the front cover when prompted to do so.

If this doesn't clear the error, try powering off the printer for 10 seconds. Otherwise, try unplugging the printer for a minute to reset the internal memory. If the unit still doesn't reset the counter, it may need service. Contact Lexmark.

I hope this helps.
