Question about Gestetner DSm645 Digital Imaging System

1 Answer

Changing the drum on a Gestetner dsm735 copier.

I repair laser printers, multifunction machines, etc. one of my new clients has the above copier. They were having problems with it and it was easily diagnosed as needing a new drum. Anyone know how to swap it out? Is the cleaning/wiping blade included in the unit called the drum unit? or does it come in just a cylinder form and I should probably also get a new blade? Is the repair complicated? any help would be appreciated. thanks. MJ alaserprinter@aol.com

Ricoh Aficio SP 4210N- Code SC 543


This is a common error code for Ricoh copiers, Savin and Gestetner copiers that need service. Recently Ricoh has purchased Lanier and now is naming all their new machines Lanier instead of Gestetner, Savin and Ricoh. However, the copier service error codes have remained he same.
When you get this copier printer service code it means the fuser or fixing assembly (same part) has thermistor problem. The copier fuser's thermistors help regulate the temperature of the fuser assembly. The fuser assembly on all copiers including Canon, Kyocera, Ricoh, Sharp and other brands is the part that melts the toner onto the page.
Getting back to the repairing the copier on Ricoh, Savin, Lanier and Gestetner models that have the fuser or fixing code error. The majority of the time the fusers' thermistors (Middle and read) need to be replaced. Just cleaning them will not solve the copier repair service code.
It is usually, depending upon the machine, its a 1 to 2 hour copier repair job because the copier repair service technician will need to dissemble the fuser, insert the two new thermistors, re-assemble, reset the error code and test the copier machine repair. Also, ask the copier technicians to to do a copier cleaning maintenance while on site.

My gestetner DSM735 keeps saying add toner. replaced toner and developer still saying add toner


The first thing i can tell you is that is weird!!!!
Because if you change the developer that error should disappear. It could appear later but not in the moment because the developer already have toner and the TD sensor will read it.
And that's the question: When you said "replace developer" you mean just the developer or the DEVELOPER UNIT??? Is your TD sensor working good????

Gestetner 3245 dev.bias setting....


Hi how you doing the main problem with changing the dev bias is that the gap between the drum charge and dev bias has been brought closer and so more toner is being put onto the drum for image density.. I take it you have cleaned the optics on the scanner mirrrors and that the laser **** glass has been cleaned as these effect the copy quality too.. if the dev hasnt been changed at the pm intervals it slowly looses its charge holding capabilities.. you should change at least at the 160k marks to keep quality good.. you could also adjust the laser power up so you have a stronger image formation..hope this helps..if you know the machine I would take the laser unit out too and take the cover off to see if there a dust coating in the image mirrors as this can cause faint copies over a long period.. Good Luck A
