Question about Epson AcuLaser C900 Printer
Replaced the photoconductor unit as per the instructions from manufacturer. Despite having attempted to "refit" several times - still gives error that photoconducter fitted incorrectly. Are there sensors that could be damaged? I have tried everything - maybe I should throw the damn thing out the window! Help.
Hey Marts Try this: Remove the PCU and the Transfer belt assy's Look inside the machine to the back, top left where you will see the cam as detailed in the picture below Open the right door and you will see a Green Wheel about half way down on the back side. Turn this wheel so the cam inside turns untill it is about 100 - 110 degrees further round (anti clockwise) than it is in the picture - basically make it go as far round anti clockwise as it will go Now try reinserting the TFB and PCU assy's in turn. You do not need to insert the 2 big silver screws that hold these units in place Close her up and see how you get on. If this has no effect, let me know and I will see what else you can do.

THIS IS A QUICK AND VERY EFFECTIVE TRICK FOR PHOTOCONDUCTER REPLACEMENT. IT HAS WORKED FOR ME NOW IT IS ABOUT 4 YEARS DOWN, THEIR IS A HIDDEN FUSE WITHIN THE PHOTOCONDUCTOR ASSEMBLY; SILVER IN COLOUR HIDDEN BETWEEN METALIC PART /CONTACTS I WILL SEND PICS SOON. THIS IS A VERY LOW AMPERE FUSE 8ma. WHENEVER YOUR PRINTER PHOTOCONDUCTER REACHES END OF SERVICE LIFE AND REQUIRE REPLACEMENT :::THIS FUSE WILL RAPTURE::::. REPLACE THIS FUSE AND YOUR PRINTER WILL BE GOOD AS NEW. U CAN REPLACE IT WITH ANY LOW VALUED FUSE 1AMP AND BELOW WILL DO. I HAVE DONE THIS TRICK 4 TIMES ON MY PRINTER THAT HAS SINCE THEN PRINTED 102,045 PAGES. [email protected]

I did as advised when my C1900 displayed "replace photoconductr" (Their spelling, not mine!).
I removed the unit and soldered a small piece of wire across the 2 metal strips (they're at the far end of the unit as you remove it).
Its back to perfect now!!
I'd post a couple of pictures, but I don't know how. If anyone wants to send me their email address, I'll be happy to email the pictures.

Re: Epson Aculaser c900 photoconductor hidden fuse location.
Thanks for fuser info, helps great here in Rijeka, Croatia.
I do some look around this whole 'drum cartrdige' and found out some good solution for exchanging The great fuse.
On the same fuser side is possible to easily remove white plastic gear. Underneath is small hole throught which is possible with some thin stick (metal will be the best) to push out the fuse to other side and remove.
So braeking plastic or removing metal contacts is not needed.

I found that the proper fuse rating is 3.15A - about £2 for 10 from Maplin. Gently gently makes replacement easy.
