Is it a genuine Samsung Imaging Unit? The unit is not seeing it as such.
This is the # for it, CLP-R300A

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

that unit is manufactured my konica minolta. it is a Konica Minolta Bizhub 501 and will use the same fuser even though the image units, toners, and transfer belt have to be chipped for the ineo. There is a picofuse in the fusing harness that blows as soon as it is installed and that starts the fuser life counter. the counter is reset when a new fuser (or new fuse, if the fuser is still good) is installed. You will need to replace the fuser for the message to go away.

Cyan Image Unit (Blue) Pull out cyan image unit not the cyan toner, Shake the image unit along the axis of the unit we want developer and toner spread evenly along the entire image unit. Then re-install. Reset code by closing and opening image unit door, not toner door. Worse case replace the image unit you do get bad ones.
Additional questions:
1.Is this a new unit?
2. Is it OEM or third party?

The machine i have is KONICA MINOLTA DI251OF.The light for the drum unit is on even after the drum been change.How can i get the light to turnoff


Was the developer also changed? Because who ever change the drum did it wrong. The first thing you do before you remove the old drum is cleared the drum counter, seems that was not done now the copier thinks the new drum is old and is applying the required voltages for a old drum even though the drum is new will have image problems and codes soon. Recommend you get a new drum, cleaning blade, and developer and replace them all their are normally done at the same time, because in a few week the developer will the go and so drum unit will show up a again. make sure you clear the counters first then install the parts and make sure you run the required F8 in service mode. Utility/Counter, Details then. stop00 stop01 for service mode. Under Function for F8 and counter for clearing developer drum image section which should be done after every forth drum the developer unit that hoses the drum and developer.

If the black toner prints like the image below with alternating bands of light and dark printing, the problem lies with your imaging unit.13911cf.jpg Specifically the developer blades in the imaging unit has toner build up on the blades. The more you use a particular color, the more it builds up to the point that it exhibits itself as faded images on the paper.

It can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit for $100+, but it will reappear again after sometime. Or you can fix the problem yourself and save yourself $100. You will need to open the imaging unit and clean the blades. I have a description on how to do this in my tips section. Or your can click on this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300. Hopes this helps you.

Doesn't scan. Only print and copy. Say's no USB


Usually the scanner and printer have separate drivers, even though both are included in one machine.

Check HP's website to see if there's a separate driver for the scanner or a program which installs both drivers from the same setup program. You might have to check device manager to see if a scanner is listed and if the driver is properly installed.

In XP and VISTA, go to control panel/device manager and see if there are any yellow caution signs by the 'imaging device' icon. If there is no 'imaging device' icon, either the driver is not installed or not installed properly.

One additional factor... HP usually requires that the driver be installed before the hardware is connected. After drivers are installed, New Hardware Wizard should find your HP devices and install them properly. If not, you might want to unistall them altogether and reinstall.

Hope this helps.
