There are a few different part numbers for those cartridges, the chip on them bills differently.
A J8 means although you have a 212 cartridge, it has a chip on it that does not match your machine setup.
A J8 indicates a mismatch in the cartridges and the machine. No you do not have the wrong physical cartridge, it just has a different chip on it.

Xerox copier 5614 stopped and posted error message J8; I cleaned the copier, replaced the cartridge with a new one, and after closing it up again, the J8 message continued. I have shut the copier down,...


This error code normally is for incorrect cartridge or not seated properly.
Trying cleaning on the copier cavity area that hold the cartridge. Make sure the power is off first.The sensors might be blocked by dust and dirt. Then reinstall the cartridge and try again. Hope this helps.

Cannon-3300 Copier Error code E000-0000 rectify the problem


E000 0000
The reading of the main thermistor does not reach 30°C 1 sec after the main
power switch is turned on. Or, it does not reach 70°C 2 sec thereafter.

Main cause:
The fixing film unit is faulty. The main thermistor has an open circuit. The
fixing heater has an open circuit. The main power supply PCB is faulty. The
DC controller PCB is faulty.

Caution:
To reset the error, execute the following in service mode:
COPIER>FUNCTION>CLEAR>ERR.

Action:
1. Connector
Is the connector of the fixing assembly connected?
a. main power supply PCB (J8) <-> relay connector <-> heater
b. DC controller PCB (J320) <-> relay connector <-> thermistor
NO: Connect the connector.

2. Fixing film unit (thermistor)
Check the interval between pin 1 and pin 2 and between pin 3 and pin 4 of
the connectosr (4-pin) of the thermistor for electrical continuity. Is it ¥W
(open)?
YES: The heater has an open circuit, or the thermal switch is open. Replace
the fixing film unit.

4. Main power supply PCB, DC controller PCB.
Press the Start key. Is the drive voltage of the heater supplied by the connector
J8 of the main power supply PCB?
Main heater: between J8-1 (FSR1) and J8-5 (FSR COM)
Sub heater: between J8-3 (FSR2) and J8-5 (FSR COM)
YES: The heater drive power supply is faulty. Replace the main power
supply PCB.
NO: The thermistor control mechanism is faulty. Replace the DC controller
PCB.

System error E000202-OOO2


Is this the code you are getting? Intermittently Fuser Error Codes E001, E002, E003, E005 or E006 are occurring

Workaround :
A flat spot on the Fuser Rollers can cause Unit 1, the Fixing/Feeding Assembly, to vibrate which can effect the connection of connectors J8, J403 and J404 on Unit 1. If needed replace the Fuser Rollers, Bushings and Bearings. Then go into Service Mode Level 1> Copier > Option > Body > FX-CROT, change this setting to 3 to prevent flat spots on the fuser rollers from occurring

    E020 01BO What does this error code mean?


    E020 indicates a Black Toner malfunction. If you've recently changed the toner and failed to distribute the toner by gently shaking it from side to side, this could be the cause of this error or if the toner is very low it could trigger the same error.
    01B0 is a drum error related to your toner error message. If toner cartridge is good, remove the cartridge, clean the drum, replace the cartridge and both errors should clear. A dirty drum will also trigger your 1st error e020.

    Print head assembly on my Lexmark Optra S 1855 needs to be replaced. My question is what causes the print head to malfunction in the first place?


    I guess you're getting an error message which is normally one of the below (causes underneath)

    Error Code 931
    No first HYSNC Signal
    Error Code 932
    Lost HYSNC =

    These errors usually indicate a
    failure in the HYSNC signal to the
    printhead. Check the continuity of
    the cables connected to J3 and J8
    on the engine board. If incorrect,
    replace the defective cable. The
    voltage at J8-4 measures
    approximately +5 V dc. If incorrect,
    replace the engine board. The
    voltage at J3-7 measures
    approximately +24 V dc. If incorrect,
    replace the engine board. If correct,
    replace the printhead assembly.


    Error Code 934
    Mirror Motor Lost Lock
    Error Code 935
    Mirror Motor unable to
    reach operating speed =

    These error codes indicate a
    problem with the mirror motor circuit
    in the printhead assembly or the
    mirror motor cable to the engine
    board cable or engine board
    assembly. Check the continuity of
    the mirror motor cable connected to
    J3 on the engine board. If incorrect,
    replace the cable. The voltage at
    J3-7 measures approximately
    +24 V dc. If incorrect, replace the
    engine board. If correct, replace the
    FRUs in the following order:
    engine board
    printhead assembly
