Photoconductor and error 537

Helo ther,
recently our epson ac1100 demanded we replace the photoconductor, upon putting a new photoconductor unit, it gave E537 message, and i hear this could be related to the fuser unit.
Considering the cost of the fuser unit and that of the photoconductor, it may be better to buy anew printer or can this problem be fixed without having to buy each and every new part?

After changing the black cartridge of epson aculaser c1100, a message flashed: Service Req E511


Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

The message E 511: Service Required is commonly due to the Photo Conductor Unit's tabs getting stuck. So the first thing we need to do is to remove the PHoto Conductor Unit. Here are the step to remove the Photo Conductor Unit off of your EPSON Aculaser C1100.

1. Turn the printer on, and open cover B.


2. Raise the yellow lever inside cover B.

3. Remove the photoconductor unit.


4. Check the white tabs on the underside of the photoconductor unit. These are spring-loaded plastic tabs that should depress when you press and release it. If the white tabs no longer spring back you need to replace the photoconductor unit.

After removing or ultimately replacing the photoconductor unit, please follow the step by step giude on how to remove the photoconductor unit in reverse order.

Hi Ya! I was looking out for the solution of the Epson 1400 printer having black toner shows pop-up message; which displays "Consumables near end of service life". "Prepare the following...

If a consumable product reaches the end of its service life, the product stops printing and displays the following messages in the LCD panel or the window of EPSON Status Monitor 3. When this happens, the product cannot resume printing until you replace the depleted consumable products.

The photoconductor unit comes to the end of its service life. Even if this message is displayed in the LCD panel, you can continue to print for a short time by pressing the B&W Start or Color Start button on the control panel. The message in the LCD panel changes from Replace Photoconductor to Worn Photoconductor.

Epson Aculaser C1100 E537

Hi there

This suggests a fuser error. This is the hot unit at the rear top of the machine.

Steps are as follows:-

2. Draw out the COVER RH boss from the hole on COVER FUSER while pushing
COVER RH outward, and remove COVER FUSER.

After removal check coninuity across heater lamp amd thermistor terminals. If either shows anyhing more than 13 Ohms then you need to replace your fuser unit.

Anything more than that requires hands on technical expertise.

Good luck

Replace Photoconductor

There are several "doors" on the C1100. You need to open the door on the top. You will see an orange handle on top of the photoconductor, to lift it out. You can't lift it out, until you've pulled the orange handle on the far right up first. You then need to buy a new photoconductor - these are £150 - £180 ish. There are cheaper solutions, such as just replacing the "killer chip", which tells the printer how many sheets you've printed, but in my experience, the replacement chips soon become faulty, and render the printer useless. I know it sounds a lot of money to replace the photoconductor, but you need to do a lot of printing before it's time to replace it.

Replace Photocondctr???

You can buy a new photoconductor unit from any basic somputer store (i.e. Staples, W.B. Mason, etc.). While on the website, search for Epson Photoconductor, and there should be at least one search result.

I will warn you, this will cost you upwards of $200+
