Transfer belt unit is out of service life


The transfer unit on my Epson C-900 is out of service life. A newer one is very expensive and I´m searching for an idea to reset the unit´s counter now. I think, this unit has enough ressources for any additional jobs. You see that differently?

best regards

Epson C-900. There is a fuse in the photoconductor unit and the transfer unit. The photoconductor has a shorter life, so it can be a few years before the transfer unit goes end of life. I suspect the fuses are blown by the machine when the counters get to end of life limit set by the manufacturer. On both components, if the fuse is reinstated/by-passed, the machine will think it has a new part. Spare fuses are available for the photoconductor unit.

The fuse on the transfer unit is a green resistor on a small board behind a black plastic dust cover on the front edge of the transfer unit (remove 3 screws to access). Ask a friend who understands basic electric circuits if you are stumped at this point.

Of course this mechanism is there to ensure you enjoy high quality output from your printer and keep it in top condition. By over-riding the mechanism quality will deteriorate and risk of failure increases.

    Wonderful hint, but it didn't work at all. The EEPROM-Button appeared what pleased me but with OK happened just nothing, unfortunately... Thanks anyway

    Wrong comment of mine, changed it with another solution, where unter optional settings one should reset the EEPROM. With CTRL + ALT+ SHIFT + W and a click in the empty field of the window of optional settings. This didn't work. I will try your solution, thanks

Reset transfer unit epson c3800

You can't - at least not without some specialised kit and knowledge.
The transfer belt also has a waste toner collector, so even if you just reset the chip, the waste toner collector would soon overflow, resulting in waste toner all over the inside of the printer (because there would be nowhere for it to go.

Refurbished transfer belts (and fusers) are available via THAT well known internet auction site.

Dell 3110 laserjet printer, belt unit close to life

This message is displayed when the pagecount of the transfer belt is 80,000 (ish)+.

The rated life of the transfer belt in the Dell 3110/3115 is 100,000 pages.

After that pagecount the transfer belt 'expires' and no further printing is possible until the transfer belt is replaced.
