Question about Epson AcuLaser C900 Printer
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?
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.
