If these look like a little squiggles, repeated across the page AND down it, at about 1" spacing.

They are cause by a component in the toner cartridge.

Originally the cleaning roller was a plain roller, but at some time the 'bean counters' decided they could save a tiny bit of money on each cartridge by using a spiral foam roller instead. The foam also seems to be of a different type, and doesn't age well.

There are two solutions.

1. Replace the cartridge that is producing the coloured squiggle/


2, dismantle an OLD cartridge and if it has a plain (non-spiral) foam roller, swap that (along with it's supports - the new type are a different size).

Either of the above will cure the problem, but a new replacement cartridge may also show the problem in time, as it WILL have the spiral cleaning roller.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 6180 uses too

In all honesty, its not that they use to much toner. Xerox does NOT put nearly enough toner in their cartridges to get the proper yield.
I have gotten as low as 200 pages out of those cartridges.
I do service on them and they do not give 1/5th the yield they advertise.
Nothing you can do to be honest. But they are hugely inefficient.

That is a laser fault. You should have a 1 year warranty from Xerox on that product. Call 1-800-835-6100 have your serial number ready.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 6180 MFP-D password

The default password is "00000" If this password does not work you can follow the following to reset it:

  1. Power OFF the machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine, toward the back. Press the power switch to the (O) position.

  2. Press and hold the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
  3. Continue to hold the [OK] button and power ON the machine. Keep the [OK] button held down until the Ready screen is displayed. The password is now reset to the default Control Panel password, which is 00000.

    NOTE: There will be no confirmation message during or after the machine's power on sequence. However, if the procedure was performed correctly, the password has been reset.

SOURCE: I have a Xerox Phaser 6180. I have not had any

I have 4 of these printers and when we print lots of manuals in full colour and duplexed the printers occasionally get to hot and need to cool down. After a 1/2 hour they are good to go again. I wouldn't worry about it, it happens only when it gets lots of use and I have never had anything go wrong with the printers after these errors

Xerox phaser 6180 has error code LPR and blue horizontal marks in background show up.


Background is usually a cleaner unit fault, need to check out more on this point. Best to start from this point and try this to see if you can make changes.
Good luck.

Xerox Phaser 6280 Y CRUM ERROR


The yellow cartridge either has a corrupted chip, or the wrong chip, or its a cartridge from a different model of printer.

Xerox 6180 and 6280 cartridges LOOK the same, apart from the label and part number - the chip is different.

You most likely need a Windows 7 printer driver.

When I print jpgs with the Xerox Phaser 6180, they print with a pink box around them


Have you tried loading a different print driver? I know the PS Driver is recommended for a phaser, but see if they have a PCL 5 or 6 and see if simply replacing the driver resolves the issue.
