XEROX 8200 PAPER JAMMING

I replaced the lamps on my 8200 recently and it worked fine for about 4 weeks. Now I can't get it to print.
Always displays "Paper Jam", even though nothing is jammed. I have to open the front cover and remove/reinstall the paper tray, most of the time it wll then print one page before it jams up again. I checked for even small bits of paper but everything is clean. Somehow a sensor must be triggered by mistake.
Any help is much appreciated!

SOund more to me like you have worn out feed wheels. They are slipping when trying to feed, therefore you get a paper jam indication, but no paper has been fed. Check the feed roller texture. If it is slick replace the roller.
I will state that first. You could have a sticking sensor, but that is less likely if you say it feeds paper.
The second most likely problem is the paper feed or paper registration clutch failing. Those are electromechanical clutches that are located on the loerf front section of the frame. You would need to remove the left side cover ( looking from the front). The clutches are round and silver, about an inch and a half thick with black gears on them. If the clutch faces are slipping, the rolllers will not drive and result in a jam.
The more I think about what your describing, the more I believe one of your clutches is bad.

Thanks tryit!
The clutch slipped and I had to bend the steel arm a bit to allow the "V" on the clutch to fully engage and to keep it from spinning.
So far, printing works fine!
Thanks again!

Xerox Workcentre 4150. Paper keeps jamming in print engine area. We clear the jam and it jams again.


If your Xerox WC 4150 is displaying "Clear the Jam in the Print Engine" or constantly jams as paper exits the machine you should check and possibly replace the fuser actuator (part# 120N00534) This is the most likely cause, if however this does not fix the printer the next step may be to replace the sensor or fuser.
Here is a video that shows you how to check and replace the actuator. ItemInc.com has this part in stock and ships same day. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa!

Patchy color printing, streaks and dull colors using Phaser 8200


I have the same exact problem. I just switched to a mac and the colors are awful. I tried from 3 different macs at work, trying different combinations of color profiles, settings, etc, and the colors always look completely off. Blues are magenta, bright red is a dull reddish, orange is completely brown. It looks like Xerox decided to not even try to make this aspect work with the Mac. This is on the latest Mac book Pro, running Snow Leopard, to a Xerox Phaser 8560 DN.

I have a paper jamming in paper pick-up area.It dosen't make it past white plastic rlrs. Manual feed by-pass works fine .XC-830


The paper pick up rollers have lost their grip and need replaced, but I wouldn't put that much expense into fixing it. That xerox is a sharp in disguise, although supplies are not interchangeable the parts are. Common repairs for that machine is the gear on the fixing roller will break, to pick up tires dry rot and the heat lamp will blow. For the expense to fix it can almost buy a new one with more features and cost less to operate. The xerox supplies are very expensive.
Just use the by pass until something else goes wrong.
Good luck

Phaser 8200 Smears on Linen Paper


Your maintenance kit is running low on oil and needs to be replaced. Since the image drum is not getting enough lubrication, some of the ink from the previous page is sticking to the drum and carried over onto the next page. Also, try to match the printer paper type to the paper you are using. It will adjust speed, temperature, etc. to optimize print.

Kodak 5300 paper jam


What kind of paper is jamming?
The paper could be too thin, or too thick.

Have any young children visited you recently?

My neighbour's grandson thought the paper tray was a great place to hide his Oreo cookie and gummy bears. The crumbs on the roller made the paper wrap around inside. It was cheaper to buy a new printer than pay for a tear down. This happened to my neighbour over Christmas.

Check for spilled ink inside the cartridge area.
If Ink has dripped down on the rollers, that would jam the paper. This would only be an issue if anyone moved the printer. Could your cleaning person have done this? It happend to me, once.

Have you checked the slider that adjusts for different paper sizes?
It could be putting too much tension on the paper and throwing off the timing of the paper travelling through the printer, so the sheet is in the wrong place at the wrong time and jams up.

Is it 8.5" x 11" photo grade inkjet paper or 4" x 6" photo paper?

Before I print, I check that the paper type setting matches what is in the tray. If it is letter size premium photo paper, then I choose that paper in the printer settings. If it is premium letter size paper for documents then I choose that paper, so the printer can adjust itself to the paper.

Are you using recycled paper?
My Kodak, HP, Epson, and Canon printers jam. Recycled paper really screws up my machines. I don't like it and can't use it.

Do you have too much paper in the tray?
Try 5 or 10 sheets only in the tray to see if the amount of paper was the culprit.

Have you tried a different package or brand of paper?
One time a package of 500 sheets of HP inkjet wouldn't go through my KODAK , but worked fine in
the other printers. The next package of HP paper worked fine.

How long has the paper been out of the package and sitting in the printer?

Try fanning the paper.

Has the humidity in your area drastically changed in the past week?
I have to keep the paper sealed in the original package. Inkjet paper out of the package is affected by humidity where I live. Winter heating causes out of package paper to collect static and stick to the rollers. Summer temperatures with high humidity causes out of package inkjet paper to absorb moisture from the room. This humid paper sticks together.

Is the paper meant for a photo copier or laser printer/copier?
I get lousy results with non-inkjet paper in every brand of injet printer I use.

Is it Brand name InkJet paper, like Kodak, XEROX, or HP?
I stick to brand name inkjet and photo paper. Dollar store paper always jams in my printers.

For Document Printing I use either:
Kodak's 24 lb Ultimate Inket Printer Brightness 98 paper,
XEROX Premium Inkjet Brightness 98 24 lb,
or
HP 96 Brightness Premium Inkjet Printer 24 lb paper.

For Photo Printing I use Kodak's Ultra Premium Photo Paper, and adjust the printer's settings for it.

Phaser 8200 paper jam


Are you referring to the upper roller in the front of the machine ? Under the stainless steel assembly? If so, it is very likely you snapped the black actuator in the registration assembly. You have to order then entire assembly to repair it.
Believe me, it happens, Oh yeah, it happens, its easy to break without realizing you have.

Xerox Phaser 8200 error code 15004.45:25393


Yep. The drum heaters are burnt out.
There are 2,,, 150 watt Halogen lamps that heat the drum.
The way to see if they are working or not is to turn off the lights in the office or room the printer is in. Turn the machine on and look through the fan slots on the right side of the machine. GIve it a minute or two and you should see lamps glowing inside, ( I seriously doubt you will see them comming on).
That is a very common problem, You can purchase those lamps at Lowes, Home Depot or anywhere you can purchase halogen lamps. They cost about 12 dollars for a good pair.
Replace both .. If you want to try and do it yourself. Let me know I will send you directions.

It sounds like your maintenance kit is defective.
The excess oil leads me to believe that.

E3 paper jam


if the paper is crooked it will come out wrinkled. If not the print is crooked indicating a different problem.
You wil have to look at the paper as it is printing, to see where it is catching, paper ramp maybe ( before the fuser entrance), exit rollers? ( only place I know there are bristles)

E3 is : paper jam in fuser

also check fingers or claws on fuser they catch the paper if worn.
