Photoconductor unit is a drun unit which does the actual copying of image on the paper. its life is 60,000 copies. its will need a replacement because after a while you will notice there are black marks appearing on your copies or your copies are not good or black shades. photoconductour unit is just beside toner supply unit. you can pull out the whole unit.

SOURCE: PRINTED PAGES ARE BLANK AFTER REPLACING PHOTOCONDUCTOR

The machine should automatically recognize the new PCU. Blank copies would lead me to think you have further problems, charge corona? transfer issues? If you try to make a copy and open the front door real fast when the paper should be at the transfer unit, is there an toner image showing on the drum? If yes, then you have charge but not getting transfer. This is a hard problem to troubleshoot without seeing machine. Anyway good luck, please rate this. Thanks ..... Wait... just had a thought. On the shaft, on the inside of the rear frame, that drives the drum there is a coupling that is spring loaded. Sometimes the shaft gets gunked up and coupling does not pop out not connecting to the PCU, which could cause blank copies and will still say replace pcu. You could add a couple of drops of oil to that shaft to loosen it up if that's the case.

After removing or ultimately replacing the photoconductor unit, please follow the step by step giude on how to remove the photoconductor unit in reverse order.

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

We are receiving the error message "84 oc life exhausted". What can we do to solve?


84 PC Life Exhausted indicates that the photoconductor unit has reached its functional life. The photoconductor kit will need to be replaced. The printer will not function so long as the Exhausted message remains on the display. The only way to clear the message is to install a new photoconductor. After replacing the photoconductor unit, you need to manually reset the pc page counter as well. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.
