    BizHub 223 end of life?

    Anyone know when or if Kon Min deemed the 223 end of life? I don't see any 223/283 on the end of life reports? Can someone email me the end of life report if they have it with the 223 on it. It came out in 2010 so think it would be in end of life status already.

    End of life for that machine is 12/2022 according to the Konicaminolta 3 Year end of life report.

    We're a fairly large company & we're practically giving the 3 series machines away to small churches just to get the service revenue clicks off of them!!!BizHub 223 end of life?

    Surprised to hear that if it was introduced in 2010. That will be more than 10 yrs supporting a machine! I thought it was like 8 yrs when no longer supported. They are good machines and have treated the customer and me very well

    They're based on the bizhub 350 which was basically bulletproof. If you put the two models side-by-each you could hardly tell the difference of the mechanical aspects.

    Only 2 months ago I did a full PM on a bizhub 350. All the parts are still available from KM. Now that shows some respect for the basic platform. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    EOL is a meaningless, or least misleading distinction. Parts and support will be available for years and years.

    These days that includes toner hopper solenoids when I do the PM.

    Just ordered a new laser for one today.

    C-2558 and ruined developer. Toner bottle and sub-hopper does not stop turning those kind of things.
    Nothing thin weather strip like stickers can fix.

    Its just the amount of fun removing that gearbox!
    Whatever
