Ok - sounds from the limited details as if you have a printhead failure - if the machine is under warranty take it back immediately, make sure you have the original cartridges inside as well and it should be fixed for you.this is not a user-replaceable part sadly.

cheers

When making copies, only a part of the document prints; the rest is solid black.


Solid black in a copy typically means that the scanner is partially blocked. Open the top, where you'd place a sheet to be copied, and examine the small strip that runs down the side (left, most likely). See if it's clear, or if something is covering part of it.
Most copiers don't use the full size scanning plate for copies, but use a strip that scans the paper as it moves across it. If something blocks part of it, you get the black area.

Lexmark X83 prints streakily or not at all


Have you used a new cartridge.

Do the test for running and cleaning new cartridge heads and the alignment procedure..

(Go to Start, settings, printers, right click on printer then click properties, cartridge maintenance.)

Other thing that might cause problem is build up of ink in right side of machine below printer cartridges.

You will have to strip down machine to get at this area.
Make a note of exactly what action you take when doing this so that you can bits back together.

I use cotton buds to get at the build up of ink or tissue wound round end of pointed object.
Go gently. When you have cleared what you can care reassemble bits and go through above procedure again. Check for any unusual noises that may denote part of mechanism has worn.

When this happen it means that your Fuser assembly and printer interior has toner contamination and build up. You can replace your fuser or run some more test print. Usually, the printer corrects itself.

Xerox Phaser 8560 Waste INk


Although I agree totally, the anwer is no. Althought it appears black, take a piece of it an use it like a crayon. It is a combination of all the color inks combined. So if you take and rub it on a piece of paper it will be a purple color. So threfore would not create proper colors.
Now to save ink, Do not turn the printer off at all. Just let it use its own sleep mode. The power consumption is intermittent to keep the print head warm and uses about the same ammount of electricity as your refridgerator light bulb. The reason being, when you turn off a solid ink printer, it purges the print head of ALL old ink and dumps it into the waste tray. That is part of those weird noises you hear when you cycle up the machine, one is a compressor emptying the print head.
Also, honestly, althogh I am not sure what you are using the machine for. But you would be wise to put that product on a pay per page maintenance agreement. That includes all ink and all service. Some of the parts for those printers are super expensive.
I will say one thing you can do with that waste ink, if you know anyone who has children, they can use them as purple crayons..
