When you get the error message "Replace imaging unit, 0 estimated pgs remain [84.3x]"
This means the imaging unit has reached end of life and needs to be replaced. The device will not print, and this message will not be cleared, unless you replace it with part number 50F0Z00
If the imaging unit is near end of life, or the device has had problems with non standard toner, vertical streaks may occur on the page. Replacing the imaging unit will resolve the problem.
Vertical streaks on page
Vertical band at top of page.
This typically appears on printed images, but can also appear on text. The most likely cause is toner contamination on the charge roll, however if the band is still visible after printing 30-40 continuous pages this means the imaging unit
needs to be replaced.
Vertical Banding on images
Seal failure on the imaging unit.
Occasionally seal leaks have been seen from the Imaging Unit.
Toner will be seen on the main frame near the Imaging Unit sides.
If toner build up is excessive, it may even fall into the Tray below. Cleanup with a toner vacuum may be needed.
Replace the Imaging Unit to fix the problem.
Spots, scratches, marks on the page.
If they are random, this indicates a problem with toner scatter.If they are repeating patterns, measure the distance between matching marks or spots. If the distance is one of 97mm, 47mm or 38mm, this indicates marks or dents on the imaging unit and it will need to be replaced.
