OK first don't panic, Second the Squikly line ( does it look like a lighting Bolt sort of ?
this means you have paper stuck somewhere and and it needs to be removed.,Open the cassette and remove paper then open the side door then the front door and remove paper that is stuck ( BE CAREFUL not to touch the GREEN ROLLER THING ) thats called a Drum, you do not want to scratch that ok.

My Xerox Phaser 6128MFP printer flashes red light after every print out....


First, when you put the paper in the tray make sure the paper holders on the side and back of the tray are positioned against the paper stack but not so much as to be snug.
Next, inside the compartment where the paper try is inserted look for a small plastic piece that hangs below the ceiling of the compartment. It should be near the front of the compartment hanging down and should swing freely backward.
Also, in the printer's paper tray settings make sure that tray is set to that size of paper you are using.

My Xerox Phaser 6128MFP printer flashes a red light with a "Load paper in Tray" message, when the specific paper size and type are already same in the tray.


If the paper size is correct in the printer and the printer and it's possible to print off a test print in both the printer control screen or directly from the print driver utilities if that works then the only thing I can suggest is the item you want to print is defaulted to a different size. i.e. Check that the word processor your using is set to the size you have in the printer. Imperial size pages will look very similar on screen as does the A4. Printers don't automatically fix paper print sizes you just have to check and recheck for differences. Removing the tray only reafirms to the printer that the size might be incorrect and your going to fit the correct size.
As for the red light all printers behave differently in certain error conditions. Have you also tried to print out something you printed at a time the printer was working correctly. In other words try printing out a different file. Maybe, trying to print off a test print of one line of the alphabet, and then go from there.
Good luck,

Tonor along edge of paper on my Xerox WorkCentre XL2140df


I would think you just have another bad cartridge. have you simply tried shaking it side to side? May just be built up on one side, but those cartridges are notorious for going bad. You need to vacuum the machine out well also. That toner and developer get in all those little plastic supports and can cause toner to dump.I would say the chance of a bad cartridge again is about 95 percent.
The printing problem. Have you tried downloading the driver from the Xerox.com site? Or simply reloading the driver. Sounds like its corrupted somehow. And when you change the tray, you are clicking apply?

Troubleshoot xerox workcentre xl2140df we have an error code E5?


An E-5 Normally comes from the paper path actuator that detcts the second side of a copy is hanging up.
In the fuser area there are some corrigated looking parts of the fuser exit guide that the actuator is most likely hitting or hanging up on.
You may have to take a pair of diagional cutters and snip a small section of that out.E-5 is a jam on duplex copies on that machine.
