Resetting the Lexmark E340/342 (display type) machines
1) Turn the printer off
2) While still off, press and hold the SELECT and RETURN buttons.
3) Keep both buttons pressed, and turn the printer on. Continue to hold both until either “Performing self test” or “Config menu”
appears on the display.
4) Release the two buttons
5) RESET PC CNT should now show on the display. If it does not, press the left or right menu buttons until it does.
6) Press the SELECT button once. “Resetting PC Cnt Value” should show on the display.
7) When the display shows CONFIG MENU again, turn the printer off.
8) Turn the printer back on. (Do not hold any buttons down this time). The printer is reset.
You can confirm the counter was reset by printing a “menu settings page”.

Why did you change the fotoconductor Unit???? This part of the machine is to create the image.
Your problem is in the tray. Meaby a broken switch. Take out the all tray and look inside to see if there is same obstruction.

Dont waste more money if you dont know what your doing. This is the best advise i can give you.

I have an old ricoh aficio cl2000n. The printing is spotty at best. The colors seem to print though. I put in a new black toner cartridge and it still didn't clear up the problem. I emptied the...

I can give my opinion for free :) lol
You are saying that you have changed the Toner Bottle? Or the fotoconductor Unit (or drum Unit)?
Is your machine cleaned? What do you mean about spotty? Is it with dots?
From what you are saying i can only think that your drum unit Bk is faulty...

Well... i am not giving you much help... but is free right? lol

Turn the machine off unplug the power cord from it and leave disconnected for 10 mins.
Power back on if error still is present..
Power off again disconnect whatever cables are plugged in (Network cable/ USB) power back on if error error goes away with the cable(s) disconnected replace the usb/cat5 cable(s)
once that's done and the error is still present the system board will need to be replaced.

950 system board

Usually, at least on the Lexmark products I am most familiar with, a 950 error had occured when a printer had the systemboard replaced and the repair tech failed to update the new systemboard to reflect the correct information contained the printer's NVRAM.

From a software perspective, this should never accidently happen. Either the NVRAM on the printer is blown or the systemboard memory of the matching terms has been cleared.

Again, not a trivial endevor.

At this point, I'd suggest a service call to get the diagnostics run against the printer. You may have to replace the systemboard.

Fotoconductor fail

Hi Friend,
you can buy a replacement fuse and install it in your current photoconductor and reinsert and away you go. you say how, well i have carried out this proceedure twice already and still printing well.
my printer is also a c1900 i purchased my fuse on ebay for a fiver and it came with full instructions and photos on how to ( is is easy ) also inc was information on saving tonner which also works. since then i bought a replacement fuse at my local electrical retailer spares department and am currently using this one as i said i have changed fuses twice now. i hope this works if not contact me and i will copy that which i have.
many thanks
