    Lightbulb bizhub 454/458 Developer

    I was wondering if i can use any developer in bizhub 458/454 developer tank which may work perfectly? Is there any developer of KM copier which is compatible with these models? I do not want to change DV tank?

    Have used DV411 before and it works but is a bit coarse for them otherwise DV116 is fine but think its the same thing. Aftermarket C360K developer should work well just get your weight right.
    Replace the chip or the ICP.
    Whatever

    Top tip* Save old DV units you can use the developer to top up failing ones. I started doing this on the C452/C552 works a treat.

    However the 8 series being a new model personally i'd not mess around with it & fit a new DV unit also the image units don't seen to last as long as the previous 4 series.

    Thank you very much for your tip. Saving the old DV tanks was already in my mind but currently i do not have one. So that's why i was looking for an alternate fix.

    Been pulling all kinds of tricks to lower the running cost...
    Get burned at the stake for mentioning these things.

    If you haven't made your money back on a dev unit after over 600k pages, there is something wrong with your service contract. If it is one that has failed early KonMin has their YPP program. Just my two cents I'm not trying to offend anyone.

    DV411 is for bizhub 423.
    DV619K is developing unit not Developer.

    My experience, I poured developer from DV tank of bizhub 287/367 into 458. Its working perfectly. Print is more dense and high contrast.

    So, what you saved in developer is costing you in toner. Lol
