    I had the same problem. I have the Magicolor 3300 and I had gotten a
    thin test piece of paper stuck in the imaging unit. I took out the
    imaging unit and pulled the paper out. Unfortunately, one side of the
    handle popped out and 1/2 of the unit fell and bumped against the left
    side of the pinter. I found this post and found the document (Available
    herehttp://www.jeffvojtko.com/images/mc3300s... followed the
    directions and voila. Fixed.

    Same problem. Magicolor 3300DN displayed a message that we need to order a new imaging unit. Ordered it. Followed installation instructions from manual very carefully, but received the "Imaging Unit Missing" error. Tried replacing the new unit with the old. No luck. This printer has been very costly in toner, imaging units, fuser units, etc.

Hi, I had the same problem. The following Cause and solution may help you fix your machine.

All refereces to left and right are facing the front of the machine as if for normal use.
The cause is due to the connector on thtop left rear of the imaging unit. this connector is mated with a coresponding, retractable connector in the body of the machine. When you open the cover over the top of the imaging unit, this connector retracts back into the body of the machine and when you close the lid it should re-engage with the imaging unit, The problem is that it dosen;t reconnect. I have asumed that it is due wear in the connector operating mechanism. This solution was effective for my printer.

Switch Off!!!
remove the topcover (after removing the colour catridges )and. remove the left hand side panel. You will see a nylon gear mechanism. Sqeeze together the nylon clip inthe centre of the gear wheel, and pull the gear about halfway off. This should allow you to move the vertical geared bar up 1 notch. .Push the gear wheel back on and try the machine to see if it works ok. All covers will need to be closed and if it works ok , reassemle the machine. Job done -about 10 to 15 mins. It tookme alot longer to find it,so some feedback would be appreciated.

Hi.
I had similar problem after removing a paper jam on MagiColor 3300 : "Imaging unit missing". The connector (top left rear of Imaging Unit) was not connected right into the machine. Removing left cover panel was a bit tricky, I believe I didn't use the right way, but get it. Moving the nylon gearwheel left&rigt untill the connector are pluged in has been enough.
Many thanks
Jean-Baptiste

How do I reset ms610 imaging unit?


When you get the error message "Replace imaging unit, 0 estimated pgs remain [84.3x]" This means the imaging unit has reached end of life and needs to be replaced. The device will not print, and this message will not be cleared, unless you replace it with part number 50F0Z00
(or 500z)
Vertical streaking. If the imaging unit is near end of life, or the device has had problems with non standard toner, vertical streaks may occur on the page. Replacing the imaging unit will resolve the problem.
Vertical streaks on page
Vertical band at top of page. This typically appears on printed images, but can also appear on text. The most likely cause is toner contamination on the charge roll, however if the band is still visible after printing 30-40 continuous pages this means the imaging unit needs to be replaced.
Vertical Banding on images
Seal failure on the imaging unit. Occasionally seal leaks have been seen from the Imaging Unit.
Toner will be seen on the main frame near the Imaging Unit sides.
If toner build up is excessive, it may even fall into the Tray below. Cleanup with a toner vacuum may be needed.
Replace the Imaging Unit to fix the problem.
Spots, scratches, marks on the page. If they are random, this indicates a problem with toner scatter.If they are repeating patterns, measure the distance between matching marks or spots. If the distance is one of 97mm, 47mm or 38mm, this indicates marks or dents on the imaging unit and it will need to be replaced.
You receive the message Replace defective imaging unit The imaging unit is defective and needs to be replaced. If you just installed it, it will be covered under warranty - contact Lexmark Australia on 1300 362 192
You receive the message Reinstall missing or unresponsive imaging unit and the below instructions don't resolve the problem. Try one or more of the following:
  • Check if the imaging unit is missing. If missing, install the imaging unit.For information on installing the imaging unit, see the "Replacing supplies" section of your device's User's Guide
  • If the imaging unit is installed, then remove the unresponsive imaging unit, and then reinstall it.
  • Note: If the message appears after reinstalling the supply, then the imaging unit is defective. Replace the imaging unit.
You receive the message Replace unsupported imaging unit The imaging unit you attempted to install was either non-genuine, or was from a different region. Buy a genuine Lexmark imaging unit from an authorised Lexmark supplier in your country/region.
You receive a 31.6x error One of the following errors is shown on the display:
31.60 Imaging unit smart chip error
31.61 Imaging unit I2C packet timeout
31.62 Imaging unit I2C packet has been sent but code timed-out on receiving the data (callback)
31.63 Imaging unit security error in the send challenge sequence
31.64 Imaging unit ROM signature error
31.65 Imaging unit stuck busy (status register and/or CRI Arbiter register report busy)
31.66 Toner failed to replenish into the imaging unit
In this case you need to ensure that the imaging unit is properly installed. If yes, check if the imaging unit is supported. Replace with a supported imaging unit if necessary.
If the problem remains, you will need to organise a Lexmark service call (Australia 1300 362 192)
You receive error message 32.11 Imaging unit smart chip compatibility error This could be caused by an unsupported imaging unit (non-genuine or incorrect region). Replace with correct imaging unit to clear this error. If your imaging unit is supported, you will need to organise a Lexmark service call (Australia 1300 362 192).
You receive error message 84 Imaging unit low If expected, replace the imaging unit. If unexpected, call Lexmark Support (Australia 1300 362 192)

HP Color LaserJet 2840 keeps showing 50.2 Fuser error message. Nothing helps correct problem. What to do? Have tried repeatedly turning printer off, waiting several seconds and turning on again. Each time...


The fuser is the heating unit near the paper exit, and that error means the lamp is burned out, the overtemp sensor is out, or the thermistor in the fuser is bad. About all you can do is replace the fuser. www.precisionroller.com will have a new fuser for you.

have you replaced all of the consumables?

if the unit has over 60k prints it will need to have these items replaced and once that is done the color registration will come back inline.

Xerox Phaser 7300 Error U20


1. Contaminated or damaged Imaging unit contacts. - Remove and clean the contacts and inspect for damage.
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS AND HINTS:
Imaging Unit Failure message occurs because the printer cannot detect imaging unit motion, up-and-down. The Transfer Belt drives this motion, and the Drum Contact Assembly detects it. 1. Swap the Imaging Unit Cotact blocks between two imaging unit positions. If the problem follows the Contact block, it should be replaced. 2. Open the Top Cover and defete the top cover interlock switch. The color imaging units should raise in succession, cyan, magenta, then yellow, and then all lower at once. If one or more imaging units do not raise smoothly or drop prematurely then replace the Transfer Belt assembly.

Most likley the problem is a faulty Imaging unit. The chip on the unit has failed. You can try reseating the Imaging Unit and if that doesn't work replace it.

Here are the other listed causes.

Cause:
Corrupted NVRAM Possible Causes are Imaging Unit, Fuser, EEprom Board or PE/MCU Board
