Shadow Printing on a xerox Phaser 8560. Have changed the Maint Roller and done the various cleaning cycles


The printer requires a maintenance kit. (95% chance anyways)
I would suggenst the extended life maintenance kit (10,000 page lifespan) part number 108R00676 to correct this issue.
You can usually get these where you get your solid ink cartridges.

I have a Xerox 8500 DN and it is not recognizing the maintainence kit, have tried compatible and OEM Xerox kits but can not get to identify. on troubleshooting Test: 57 Drum Maint. Kit :Ck DM contact...


The maintenance kit needs to touch contacts to reset it.

There is a camshaft 020K14800 which may be cracked and therefore doesn't position these contacts. I suggest replacing this.

The printer makes a terrible noise during warming up


for a start: these machines are quite noisy at startup, so this may be normal. do you have problems printing? because if you don't, it's not worth trying to fix something that isn't broken. if the printer tells you the maintenance kit needs replacement, you can open the side panel, and feel a little lever at the bottom side of the maintenance kit (yellow-ish drawer). you need to push this lever upwards, while pulling out the maintenance kit.

Infrequent use of Xerox Phaser 8500


The reason he told you that is because ;
if left on permanently the fuser unit has a lamp ( nowadays the newer ones use a ceramic) the lamp continually comes on to keep the fuser warm and ready for you to print.which may cause the lamp to burn prematurely, most business keep theirs on all day with out the sleep mode( too busy to wait to warm up),

But, when you use the sleep mode most models do not turn on the lamp ( if it does it only puts out minimal power) but keep the power ready, which is why when you go to print it takes awhile to warm up.
The lamps are very resilient and last several years before having to change.
