Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies
MX 3100N has a maintenance code of DC. What does it mean and how to fix it?
Posted by Anonymous on
This is a scheduled maintenance programmed into all of these machines. It pops up when the machine crosses a certain "milage." If your machine is still making nice copies and prints it's nothing to worry about.

Apparently your machine is set to stop when the supply counters trigger a maintenance code. You can type # * C * and go into Sim 26-38 and bypass this.
VC means your cyan developer has reached its' rated life of 60,000 copies and needs to be changed. Your yellow and magenta developer which are usually changed at the same time as the cyan have also reached their end of life (VM, VY) and so all 3 will need to be changed (not black, your VK code will come up at 100,000).
You will need the color developer kit and the seals and filter. Sim 24 resets the counters and sim 25 resets the toner-developer mix ratio (this is MANDATORY or your new developer will be ruined, you must run the copier with a door open and only close it when you are ready to set the mix).
There's also various color calibrations after this you can get from a service manual. DO NOT run old developer through your machine, it will eventually lose its' magnetic properties and be carried through the copier sandblasting everything in its' path.

Try to clear code. enter sim with program key- asterisk*-clear key- asterisk*(P-*-C-*) enter sim 14 print key execute yes clear all machine will reset. if code comes back it is not just not a fluke and you may have another issue.

VK = 100,000 pages printed on the developer counter or 715,000 revolutions of the developer unit (as mixing can occur even when pages are not being printed). Developer can break down over time and or the seals can be damaged - so service by a technician is indicated. If maintenance was recently performed and the developer replaced then the counter needs to be reset.
