While installing a new maintenance kit on a printer I ran into the issue of resetting the maintenance count. Unfortunately, Lexmark seems to have hidden this functionality and even Google wasn’t able to bring up any results for me.
That being said, I was eventually able to figure out how to reset the counter and this post is an attempt to make finding this answer easier for myself and others in the future 🙂
If your x658de can be summarized with this image, you may want to order a new maintenance kit sooner rather than later…
To reset the maintenance counter after installing a maintenance kit in a Lexmark x658de printer, perform the following steps:
1. Power down the printer.
2. Hold 2 and 6 on the printer’s keypad.
3. Power on the printer.
4. You’ll see the progress indicator as per normal but will eventually end up in a configuration menu screen instead of the regular home screen.
5. Select the option to reset maintenance count.
6. Exit the config menu. The printer will restart back into the home screen.
It seems there are steps for other Lexmark printers however I couldn’t find this one no matter how much I looked.
After a long break I finally continued work on both of my Android apps offering new updates for both Price Compare and the full version of School Scheduler. I’ve also updated the download links for School Scheduler on this website. Please contact me if you run into issues downloading the update.
School Scheduler finally has widget support. It’s now possible to view your schedule for the current day as a widget on the home screen.
Price Compare has had a number of improvements and fixes made to it. The most noticeable one is a new recommendation system to give you a better idea of the price of an item is a good or poor deal in relation to existing items stored in the app.
I’ll continue to try and find time to work on and improve these apps in the coming future. I’ve also been digging into Unity a bit to see if I can come up with any game ideas that would be worth releasing 🙂
Stay tuned! And thank you for all of your support!
