A 31.06 Defective Imaging Kit Error indicates that the MFP has detected a problem with the Imaging Unit. A service call will probably be required to solve this issue. Certain rare occurrences, however, such as a power fluctuation or a static discharge in the vicinity of the MFP, can cause a false 31.06 error message to appear. In such cases, the error is only temporary and can be easily resolved without service.



If the 31.06 Defective Imaging Kit Error appears, please first update the firmware to the latest version.
