Updating Xerox 8500N to 8500DN to get duplex printing

Hi !
Apparently on my Xerox 8500N, if I change the little configuration card for the one that came with a 8500DN, my printer will have duplex printing. Do I need to change/install anything else like the NVRAM chip as someone told me. I already increase memory from 128 to 512MB.

Thanks to give me the more information/instruction to help me get the duplex printing on my Xerox 8500N

    I installed a 8500DN configuration card and redo the printer installation process with the Xerox CD and everything remains as before ie no automatic duplex printing. Still offering me the manual double side printing option and on my configuration page, it said Duplex Unit Not Installed ! How can I install the duplex unit ?

We have a Xerox Phaser 8500N printer. The yellow is printing out a dingy gold. I hav checked the yellow print blocks and there is plenty.


What it essentially boils down to is that you're not printing enough color. The blocks are melted into a holding bin and will discolor over time. To correct this, you will need to purge the color that is "stale". Go to this link http://www.solid-inks.co.uk/technical_support-phaser_850_860_8200.html?category_id=1 and download the pdf for your color (I would recommend downloading all four to keep on hand). You'll want to open the PDF and print 10 to 20 copies until the bad ink is replaced with fresh ink. You'll notice the color change as the ink is purged.

How to set up printer to print double sided. Printer Xerox Phaser 8400


First look at your printer identification.

You can see it in either the display or on the startup or configuration pages.

It must have a "D" in the name for you to be able to do automatic duplexing. i.e. 8400DN or 8400DX . Then you can scroll to printer setup
and select defaults, and then turn on the duplex, or double sided printing.

If yours does not have a "D" i.e. 8400, 8400N then you would need a new sim card to enable the duplex option.

Xerox 8500n with error 13323.47:23971


13,323 is a Printhead Reservoir Temperature Faults . One of 3 things. In order of likeliness.
1. Print head has failed
2. Cable to the back of the print head is loose.
3. Electronics module has failed..

What that code means is that once the ink melts and flowes into the print head, the print head is not maintaining the proper temperature.

Printer staus unavailable at this time


A couple things I would check that can cause this, all related to PC to Printer communication.
  1. Cable problem: Printing locally with a non-bidirectional printer cable from LPT1.
  2. Configuration Issue: Printing via IP and having designated in the device setup more trays then actually exist. For example, checking that you have a feeder when you have only the default tray.
  3. Resource Conflict: Printing via IP when another device is using the same IP.
  4. User Error: Having multiple copies of the same printer. i.e. 8500DN, and 8500DN(1) setting one up but having the other set as default.

My 8500N prints reams of code instead of the jpg sent to print


First off and I am sure you have tried this, but power of then power up your printer. Just to allow it to reload the software internally.
The other thing is to change drivers. That is what is generating the code.
You can go to Xerox.com there is a varity of drivers to try. Sometimes a PS and PCL driver will intrepert differently and print code like that.
Not sure preview is where the problem is. But I am assuming it prints fine in other applications.
There is also a firmware update on the xerox.com site, you can upload the newest printer software there. Or at least start out with a clean version on your printers operating software.
I strongly suspect a driver change will help.

Have you gone into the driver properties and checked if the setting in the drive is defaulted to duplex?
