I just replaced my fuser at the same time as the imaging unit & transfer roller. Both the imaging unit & the roller now show the correct life and installation date. However, the FUSER unit says I have 62% life and lists the installation date as 2007.
Could the printer mistake this, or did I get ripped off by someone?
Would someone else's fuser's information & installation date show up my MY printer?
Additional information that may or may not apply:.
It is possible that my fuser was OK and IT may have had 62% life left on it prior to removal - because my information page from 2 months ago showed it as having 70% life remaining (although it listed a 2004 installation date, NOT 2007). I wasn't sure if THAT information was even correct, because I had REINSTALLED the SAME FUSER about that same time (when I discovered I had the wrong replacement part. I'm not sure if reinstalling the SAME FUSER "reset" the fuser life to 100% or not because I didn't print a new information page PRIOR to installing the NEW (USED?) FUSER today.
Thank you for your help
PS. The printer DID reset a transfer roller back to 100% when I reinstalled the SAME one while I waited for a new one to arrive. (It allowed me to print an emergency job that could NOT wait). However, the printer did list that installation date correctly - it did not spit out some phantom date.
