Question about Xerox Phaser 8400 Laser Printer
07,009.42 indicates that the printhead was unable to tilt normally on its axis.
You probably have a cracked drum maintenance camshaft. If the drum maintenance pivot plate is white plastic it should be replaced as well with the new style, which is black plastic. This repair requires removing the process drive gears assembly and reinstalling it requires the gears to be timed. This repair should be performed by a qualified technician familiar with these machines.
You probably have a cracked drum maintenance camshaft. The dm camshaft is driven by the process drive motor on the right side of the printer. It raises and lowers the maintenance kit against the drum to oil and clean the drum. The camshaft has 2 lobes on it. These lobes crack over time and cause several different error conditions. The camshaft part # 401100380 is only about $17 from xerox but can be tricky to replace if you're not mechanically inclined. The other thing to look at is the pivot plate assembly. Slide out the drum maintenance kit. If you look inside the cavity the plate that the maintenance kit sits on is called the pivot plate. If it's white it will also need to be replaced with a black one.
