There is an encoder on the drum drive motor that picks up lubricant from the maintenance kit. It may simply need cleaned, if cleaning doesnt work, it will need to be replaced.
Xerox has parts lists on the xerox.com site for that product if you need to locate it.

    Meant to explaine. When the encoder gets dirty, the drum runs at the wrong speed causing the blurry image

Xerox Phaser 8400 prints pdfs in half page


I've seen this issue on some of my other Xerox machines (not the 8400 specifically). 9 times out of 10 the solution is to update both the printer driver to the newest version, as well as updating Adobe Reader to the newest version.

Here are the links to each:

Blurry Printing


Quite possibly, your Wave Amp board has failed. If so, it is more cost effective to purchase a new printer than to repair yours unless you can find used parts.

Currently, Xerox is offering a trade-up rebate on new solid ink printers.

No, it will not work because the chip (CRUM) is not compatable.

Phaser 8400 Printing Blurry


The Drum Encoder is behind the fan assembly.

When you take the encoder cover off be extremely careful.
Use a cotton swab on the disc only with just a light amount of alcohol on the encoder disc.

Xerox phaser 8400


The first obvious question is, "Does it have blue ink/wax?" Is it displaying any errors? Have you tried the Xerox support site? They have a fantastic utility that can connect to your printer and diagnose many problems. Here's the URL for the utility: http://www.phasersmart.com/ They also have a wealth of information in their knowledge base. Here's the URL for the support page for the Phaser 8400: http://www.office.xerox.com/printers/color-printers/phaser-8400/sprt-enus.html Did anything happen before the blue quit printing? Have you tried running a cleaning cycle?
