    Squeaking Epson Aculaser C1000

    Hi,

    We have a trusty, solid, hard working Epson Aculaser C1000. It's started making a horrible, grinding squeaky noise which I believe to be the Fuser Kit. Before we go and spend over 400 for one- does anyone know if this is what it could be? Or do you think it could be cheaper getting Epson out to it?

    I had a look at the fuser kit and there is a strip of the red roll missing...like it's been torn off or snagged. Looks suspicious to me...

    Any help appreciated!

    IMHO depending on age I would personally prefer to replace the printer with a new one rather then pay 400 for spare parts. We just bought some nice Brother HL-4040CN quite cheaply and cost per page is not much. We also have some HP CP3525 which are fairly decent put more expensive per page.

    Where did you get your Brother's? How much did they cost if you don't mind me asking?

    +1 for replacing - especially when they're under 200 new - and for that you get a new fuser, photoconductor and some toner (not full cartridges, but still "some")

    Thanks tony- we need it with Network printing though really and that doesn't seem to have it on.

    Thanks for your help

    Ah, that's the C1100N - you could always get a C1100 to rip apart for spares (like a half-price fuser) and just chuck out the bits you don't need? that's what we've been known to do in situations like that....

    Hahaha! What a great idea Think the fuser kit would work in a C1000?

    oooh sorry misread your OP - you've still got a C1000 - wow! we got one of those in 2001 as our first colour laser errr no, it won't fit

    I can recommend however, having 8 of them, the C1100N as a replacement (and they're only just over 200 - compatible toner cheap as chips too). I've recently started re-chipping photoconductors on ours, too (20 rather than 160) and they seem fine so far.

    I think this could be your problem.

    We got ours from silicon alley - our sponsor on the forum - can't remember the exact price but we got 75 cashback in a deal from Brother. but i think they retail around 250 mark but not sure.

    Cool beans! How do you re-chip??

    Can you get the network version too?

    It's all here Epson Aculaser c1100 Drum Reset Chip

    C1100N is the network version - identical to the C1100 I linked to but with a network card instead of a blanking plate
