    Magicolor 5670 Imaging Unit Reset

    Hello,

    i still have an old KM Magicolor 5670 Printer (which is soon going to be replaced) that stopped working because the black drum / imaging unit needs to be replaced.
    It prints just fine and just stopped because the counter reached it`s end.

    Because the toner cartridge is still at 60% and the printer is soon to be replaced i`d like to keep the current imaging unit until the toner cartridge is empty.

    Do i now have to buy one of those reset-chips from the internet?
    Or is there an other way to reset the imaging unit or tell the printer to print anyway?

    Thank you

    if you just chip it, the bias voltage may go back to default and cause crappy quality on that IU.
    best just to replace with new.
    We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two.

    Thank you for your advice, but i don`t want to put new (190 Bucks a piece) Units in this Machine, because it`s going to be replaced soon anyway.

    Also the other Imaging Units are very low, but there is plenty life left in the toner cartridges.

    I`d just like to empty the current toner cartridges and then sort the whole thing out.

    Image quality is not the No 1 priority here, cause it`s an old machine and i have others to print the important stuff.

    I think you should try just new chips, nothing much to lose,if something go wrong just trash that.
    Once I replace IU chips on Bizhub C25 2 times with same IU and it working pretty much ok and still working.
    That IU are made good and easy can do 50k without problems from my experience.

    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.
