    Bizhub C258 color and Bw drum unit

    Hello All,

    So far it the bizhub c220/c280/c360/c224/c284... models we were abble to use the black drum units as color,
    but now in the bizhub c258/c308 series when swapping the units black to color there is a quality issue.
    By eye the color DU and b/w DU ire indentical!

    Has anyone figured this up? What is the difference?

    Thanks!

    I know this is an old post but i presume everyone knows that you can change the black drum units to colour.

    We don't bother changing the chips we use adapters !


    Very easy to convert the black drums to color and the savings are massive.
