Question about Xerox WorkCentre XE88 Laser Printer

1 Answer

No image printing

I was about to dispose of this printer, but wanted to see if the problem was perhaps a resolvable maintenance issue. The printer installs and runs with no error codes, but no image is produced. This doesn't seem to be a toner problem as there is no "low toner" light. The mechanisms seem to be fully operational and it seems to run smoothly, just no image. Is there a part that may fix this issue? Thanks in advance for any responses. I hope this question isn't too vague.

When it prints there are many lines missing and unprinted can you advice please how to resolve this issue?

This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.

Won't print envelopes

Please have a look at the manual for your printer here, consult page 31 and make sure you have followed the instructions for setting up the Printer Properties(driver) for your OS. (pg 21).
It may be necessary for you to update the printer drivers on your system to get the machine to print correctly. You can download the latest drivers from HP here.
If this info doesn't resolve your issue, have a look at other similar posts in the HP forums here, and perhaps you will find a solution, but I'm guessing you haven't configured the printer properties correctly.
There is also a problemsolving guide in the manual online that may help you with step by step instructions if you want to troubleshoot the issue from your side.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Printing in Mirror image


It's likely that you have an old outdated printer driver for your L7590 as this has been a long "known" issue with the L7000 series of MFD's.

To resolve the issue properly you need to uninstall the current driver version and then download the latest version of the software that isn't just driver/basic based.

You can extract the source files including the drivers folder using 7zip if you want to try and avoid installing all the additional bloat that comes with these printers.

Failing that, you need to define alternative quick settings to take over from duplex (two-sided) printing as this appears to have been incorrectly set to use mirror printing. Other quick settings have been implicated as well but the driver update should resolve all of them.

In some instances the driver update doesn't apply properly so you may need to uninstall and reinstall more than once... Remember to delete your printer from the printer listings and unplug it from the USB cable before you uninstall and reinstall to get it to work properly.

Hope this helps.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK

Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
