Hi Joe, what model of Minolita do you have? The service mode has changed in the years, but basicly the same. The basic all around one is > Stop - 0 - 0 - Stop - 0 - 1

When was the last time the developer and drum where replaced? Does the machine say "REPLACE DRUM in the upper left corner of the operation screen? More then likely your drum and developer need to be replace if not those then the DEVELOPER CARTRIDGE NEED TO BE REPLACE when was the last time that was replaced? Every four drums the developer cartridge needs to be replaced. When the developer was replace was a F8 run from service mode?

First clear the developer counter in service mode.

then remove the drum cart. remove developing unit. remove old developer. then run Auto max density. If you don't and make a copy or print you will have to replace the developer again
. recommend cleaning all toner around the drum and drum sensors requires removing drum be careful a nick on the drum will show up on all copies/prints

Start first bye buying a new drum, cleaning blade and developer. Hope fully you did not destroy the sensor on the bottom of the developer unit it has a ribbon cable. You need to clear the counter for developer drum first in service mode. Then replace the developer and drum and cleaning blade together as one!!!!!!
Then run the required F-8 procedure in service mode.

The machine i have is KONICA MINOLTA DI251OF.The light for the drum unit is on even after the drum been change.How can i get the light to turnoff

Was the developer also changed? Because who ever change the drum did it wrong. The first thing you do before you remove the old drum is cleared the drum counter, seems that was not done now the copier thinks the new drum is old and is applying the required voltages for a old drum even though the drum is new will have image problems and codes soon. Recommend you get a new drum, cleaning blade, and developer and replace them all their are normally done at the same time, because in a few week the developer will the go and so drum unit will show up a again. make sure you clear the counters first then install the parts and make sure you run the required F8 in service mode. Utility/Counter, Details then. stop00 stop01 for service mode. Under Function for F8 and counter for clearing developer drum image section which should be done after every forth drum the developer unit that hoses the drum and developer.

On my bizhub 250 copier, there is a message stating " Please change PC Drum" My question is, How do I change PC Drum?

This is a service technician performed function. The PC Drum unit is changed by removing the whole imaging unit and then removing the drum section and changing it out. At the same time the developer needs to be cleaned from the developing unit and replaced with fresh developer. The drum counter is then reset using the service mode and then the new developer must be calibrated using the F8 mode. So in this machine's case, this is just not a pull out the old unit and plug in a new one.
If you find the "right" service guy, he can come in and reset the drum counter and do the f8 without changing either the drum or the developer. This can sometimes get twice the life out of the unit. Copy quality can degrade a bit towards the end of the second cycle.
If you just reset it your looking at around $100. If you do everything that is called for then the cost is more like $350.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Utility/Counter -> Details -> [STOP][0][0][STOP][0][1]
Go to counter and clear the life of the developer and drums and then run F8 from functions.
