Error Code 09,038.46:16952

My printer (phaser 8500) was turned off over the weekend, when I came in and turned it back on I had the following error code 09, 038.46:16952. I called xerox, but our warranty expired a week ago, so I'm trying to self diagnose here. He did say he thought it had to do with the black ink sticks. Any ideas?

If the ink sticks look in good condition you need to replace the ink loader as tryit suggests. I have seen many fail, especially when someone uses non-Xerox brand ink. Here is a video that will show you how to replace it. Also covers the 8500, 8550, and 8560 though the part numbers are different.

Yeah it does have to do with the ink sticks, and most likely with the black. the .46 indicates that. take a look at your ink sticks and see if one is broken , twisted or just not advancing because the bottim is stuck to the ink loader.
If you have to , take a screw, a drywall type screw works best, and twist the screw into the ink stick, then slide them back and out. The ink stick is not hitting the switch at the bottom of the ink loader.
Possible that the ink loader is bad, but I never have seen one fail.

Xerox phaser 8500 error code 09, 038, 46:4597


Ink count sensor flags are stuck after melting 2.5 ink sticks. The following codes are recorded: 9,03x.41, where x= 5 for cyan, 6 for magenta, 7 for yellow, and 8 for black. (Your error indicates black ink loader failure)

Features on the bottom of genuine Xerox ink sticks actuate the Ink Out Sensor located at the forward end of each ink channel of the Ink Loader. The sensor indicates the passage of ink to provide a count of ink consumption.

Damaged or non-genuine ink sticks may not reliably actuate the sensors. This can lead to false Ink Out messages as well as Ink Stick count faults. Using 8400 model ink in a 8500/8550/8560 models will also cause 9,03x.4x ink stick count faults.
Ink Loader will need replaced and then diagnostics entered to run "Clear ISC Fault" test to clear the error.

Error code 37,016.43 Xerox Phaser 8500 Printer Problem I get this error when I power up. Printer won't do anything. What can I do to fix it?


This is an internal power supply error. The 50 Volt supply has a fault, or there could be a short on the supply rail.
There could be an error in the Head Maintenance, Deskew, or pick clutches.

I think you will need a qualified technician to fix this.

The printhead is stuck in the tilted position. Did you have a power outage or turn it off by unpuging it? Not hard to fix but you have to tear it down and rehome everything. sometimes if you turn it off and turn it back on it will find home on itself. But rehomeing it works every time. If you dont know how to do this call a service center.

Best way to do that is take a screw. I use a drywall screw, and twist them into the blocks and slide them back and out. Remove all of them, see if there is just one stuck or not compltely advanced in the loader. Then replace them all . That should clear the code.

Phaser 8500, error code: 09,038.46:13269


Hi This is not for your printer but it for the same make as yours try
and it is the same error code.
Solution:
  • Turn off the printer. Turn on the printer.
  • As soon as you see XEROX start moving across the display hold down the back and help buttons until you see "beginning service mode" on the display.
  • Release the buttons, it will now come up in the service mode.
  • Scroll down to the function menu, hit ok, scroll to clear isc fault, hit ok. Hit the back button to get back to the first menu then exit diagnostics, hit ok when it asks if you want to restart in customer mode.

Phaser 8560 error code


Most likely you are using generic ink or ink not made for that specific machine. The black ink is the one causing the problem. the printer will then need to be reset.
