Hi I would like to assist to the best of my ability to solve your problem.I hope the information i supply will be of help.

The imaging unit is the drum unit.This is the part where the image is created on before it is printed onto the paper.It has a life time counter for a certain amount of prints then it needs to be replaced.The counters will reset once you install the new unit.There might be reset chips available.Hope this helps.
