Reset Procedure(s) after installing new photoconductor kit
Resetting the Lexmark E340/342 (display type) machines
1) Turn the printer off
2) While still off, press and hold the SELECT and RETURN buttons.
3) Keep both buttons pressed, and turn the printer on. Continue to hold both until either “Performing self test” or “Config menu”
appears on the display.
4) Release the two buttons
5) RESET PC CNT should now show on the display. If it does not, press the left or right menu buttons until it does.
6) Press the SELECT button once. “Resetting PC Cnt Value” should show on the display.
7) When the display shows CONFIG MENU again, turn the printer off.
8) Turn the printer back on. (Do not hold any buttons down this time). The printer is reset.
You can confirm the counter was reset by printing a “menu settings page”.

No, if you changed the photoconductor kit, then you just need to reset the maintenace count for the PE Kit.

Please follow this hyperlink to the specific instructions you need on Lexmarks web site.

How to reset PC kit e332n


To reset the PC page count, while the printer is on, open front cover then press the cancel button.
NOTE: The photoconductor page count should be reset only when a brand-new photoconductor kit is installed. Resetting the page count without replacing the photoconductor kit could cause the photoconductor to operate beyond its intended life and thus create print quality issues.

Photoconductor kit? Dell 1700 printer


The photoconductor kit is another word for the drum or imaging drum. All three words refer to the same part.

Here is a link from the Dell site for this model.
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/PopupProductDetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=dhs&sku=310-5404

Once you replace the drum, the printer has to be manually reset. If this is not done, the printer will continue to give this print out. By resetting it, the counter is set back to zero. The drum is good for around 30k prints.

From the Online Manual for the 1700, to reset the counter:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/1700n/en/index.htm#online_documentation

To reset the counter, press and hold the Cancel button until all lights flash in sequence.

NOTICE: Resetting the imaging drum's counter without replacing the imaging drum may damage your printer and void your warranty.

After changing photoconductor kit and toner, paper jam light stays on and will not go out.


First Make sure you follow the instructions in this link to properly replace and reset your Photoconductor Kit http://bit.ly/9mfe3G.
The if the error light is still on then there might be a piece of paper somewhere in the printer blocking a sensor. Make sure there is no paper jammed in the printer and if there is no paper then a paper sensor is probably damaged.

Dell 1720 flashinf replace drum- error.


The second link was the helpful information. Also, to cut through all of that --

If you need to reset the counter:

1. Remove drum kit with toner

2. Make sure all print jobs are flushed otherwise whatever has been sent and not printed will come spewing out.

3. Hold down CANCEL Button until all lights flash through.

4. Slide the drum kit and toner properly into the Printer.

done.

Lexmark E232 Printer prints all characters fine but leaves about an inch gray/black margin on the left side of the paper. Tried replacing the toner cartridge and it didn't help. Any suggestions?


If this model has separate toner and photoconductor then the photoconductor is at end of life and needs to be replaced. Follow the directions that come in the new photoconductor package to install and reset the PC count this is important.

Luck
