Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer
From what I've found on the internet they say to purge the print heads. How do i do that?
Just shut it down for about 15 minutes and turn it back on. Every long warm up the machine will **** out the old ink and refull. Some of those odd sounds is a compressor emptying the print head.
You may not get the true blue you want. That is a shortfall on that machine, I have battled getting a greenish blue tint on that product.
Have not received a good answer from engineering. Frustraiting.

Tips for a great answer:
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Somewhere in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if it is jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years; it is not just used in one model. And it is always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow. Move back and forth several times (with the power off)
