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?
Thanks
Jojo

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


Hello,

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.

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.
