EP 1083 service /reset codes

Hi, I bought a Minolta EP 1083 and the maintenance counter on my Minolta EP 1083 has reached its limit and I wonder how I can reset the codes and get it working again.

    I don't get a counter with a negative sign when I press 4 to enter counter mode.

  • dan-hagman Jul 31, 2008

    When I pressed stop-0-stop-1 and then pressed 4 on the keyboard, I got the three digit counter (the zoom procentage display) displaying the digits 650, and the two digit counter (for number of copies), displayed two zeros.

    Then when I had the machine open (the upper part tilted up) and again pressed stop-o-stop-1, and pressed 4 to enter counter mode and then pressed the cancel key, both counters were zero'ed, but the lamp for the developer is still on.

Press on keyboard, stop o stop 1. Press 4 to enter counter mode., the first counter should be the pm, displaying a counter with a negative sign. Press cancel key to reset to 0. Exit service mode by pressing panel reset 2 or 3 times and you should be back in business.

How can I remove code m2 in Minolta 215 coppier

Hi fatma, this is most likely a maintenance counter error. You need to reset the maintenance counter. Do so by pressing: Select [Service Mode] [CLEAR DATA] [PM COUNTER]
This should enable the printer to start working again.
Hope this helps!

My minolta 1083 forgot how to count

minolta normally use the following code to get into the service mode so you can reset back to defaults. Be warned you can damage the machine further by doing this.

A. Procedure
1. Press the Utility/Counter key.
2. Touch [Details] on Meter Count display.
3. Press the following keys in this order.
Stop → 0 → 0 → Stop → 0 → 1

This all depends on age of machine.

Thanks Jason

Please help

It means that the maintenance counter has reached its limit or you may have an error. If it is time for maint. then usually you replace the drum, cleaning blade, and developer (or the entire process unit) and reset the counters in service mode if the parts do not reset the counts automatically. Or you could simply reset the codes and not preform any replacements. Could you provide a bit more detail on the exact model number (EP-2010, EP-2030, etc...) and such and I can provide you more information on how to rectify the situation.
