Ricoh ap4510 - Maintenance Kit Issue

The office Ricoh was displaying a message today: "Replace Maintenance Kit." We had a kit on hand. The kit comes in 2 boxes, Box A (development unit) and Box B (fusing unit & transfer unit).

I found that the part in Box A had already been installed. I proceeded to install the parts included in Box B hoping to clear the message. The parts are now installed as per the instructions but the "Replace Maintenance Kit" message (with accompanying red light) remains.

Printer experts, how do I clear this message and return the machine to working order?

Many thanks,
The Intern

Hi,
This message is for Box A, which is consist of Developer and Drum. If your copy quality is good keep using it. but if you don't like the red light then you have to replace the Kit A. New kit will reset the light.

HOW I WILL GO IN SERVICE MODE OF A PRINTER


Clearing the Maintenance Count and Service Message: HP LaserJets servicepin.jpg
If the display panel on your HP LaserJet reads "Perform Printer Maintenance", "Perform User Maintenance", "Maintenance Kit Low", "Maintenance Kit Very Low", or anything along those lines it means your printer needs a preventative maintenance kit, which includes a fuser and various rollers. Once you have installed the maintenance kit the message will only go away if you clear the maintenance count.

How long will a ricoh sp 8100 run with a replace pm kit error code?


On most similar Ricoh models, the "replace PM kit" message will keep flashing until the PM kit is replaced, but this shouldn't hinder operation at all. The machine will keep running until one of the parts breaks down, which depends on how old everything is and how hard it is worked.

Basically, the flashing message is a reminder to replace the maintenance kit as a preventative measure, but it does not NEED to be done until something actually breaks.

8550DP Maintenance Kit


First of all make sure it is the right kit. The part numbers for teh 8550 and 2424 are very close, one ends in 675 the other in 657, so they have been known to be mixed up.
then here is the documentation..

Problem:
The machine displays the Replace Maintenance Kit after the Maintenance Kit has been replaced.
Cause:
There may two causes for this issue.
  1. The machine does not recognize that the Maintenance Kit was removed. This would likely be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate.
  2. The machine corrupts the CRUM on the new Maintenance Kit. This may be caused by a defective Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate or IO Board.
Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix.
  1. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message does not change to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a new Maintenance Kit.
  2. While the Replace Maintenance Kit message is displayed, remove the Maintenance Kit. If the displayed message changes to "Maintenance Kit Missing," replace the IO Board and then install a different NEW Maintenance Kit. If the problem persists, replace the Drum Maintenance Pivot Plate and install a different NEW Maintenance Kit.

We have a Phaser 8560 Printer and we are getting the message "maintenance kit low" message. What does this mean and how do we fix it?


This will require servicing:
The maintenance kit contains a maintenance roller that keeps the surface of the Imaging Drum clean and oiled.
NOTE: Order a new maintenance kit when the Display Screen displays a message that the maintenance kit is low. Replace the kit when the Display Screen prompts you to replace the maintenance kit. Both a Standard Maintenance Kit and an Extended Maintenance Kit are available for the Phaser 8550 and 8560; however, only a Standard Maintenance Kit is available for the Phaser 8500. An Extended Maintenance Kit will not be functional with the Phaser 8500.

WARNING: The printer's interior may be hot! Do not touch the hot surfaces.

Once you have the part: instructions:
  1. Open the door on the right side of the printer.
  2. Grasp the maintenance kit (labeled A) from the maintenance kit slot and pull the kit completely out of the printer.
  3. Insert a new maintenance kit and push the kit completely into the maintenance kit slot. Follow the illustrated instructions included with the maintenance kit for full installation and disposal information.
  4. Close the door.
This will be on the right side of the printer.
This will need to be replace every 10,000 sheets of paper.

  1. Close the door.
