How do I change the print head on a Xerox 8500?


Hi there,

How to remove a printhead
  1. Press the on-line / off-line key on the printer operator panel to set the printer off-line.
  2. Use the upper softkeys to scroll to the 'Replace printhead' card
  3. Press the softkey below the 'Replace printhead' card to enter the wizard.
    An introduction screen displays the message 'Use this wizard to replace printheads. A roll is needed for calibration.'
  4. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Select roll to use'.
    The system does a calibration at the end of the wizard. You can only calibrate on the defined media types. When calibration is not possible with the media available on the printer, the system asks you to load the correct media. When calibration is possible with one of the rolls, the system automatically uses the correct media roll. When calibration is possible with both rolls, use the lower softkeys to select the roll to use.
  5. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to centre position...' while the carriage moves to the centre.
    The screen displays 'Open top cover.'
  6. Open the top cover. The screen displays the message 'Replace printheads' and the printheads that you must replace. Find the correct printhead number on the printhead carriage.
  7. Press the front of the printhead cover to unlock the cover.
  8. Open the printhead cover.
  9. Pull out the printhead and remove it.
How to place a printhead
  1. Remove the protective tape from the new printhead.
    Do not touch the contact and nozzle areas of the printhead after you remove the protective tape.
  2. Place the new printhead in the printhead holder.
    The printhead only fits in one way.
  3. Close the printhead cover.
  4. After you replaced the defective printhead, press the softkey for 'Next'
  5. The screen displays the message 'Make sure that all head covers are properly positioned.'
    Press the key for 'Done'.
    The screen displays the message 'Close top cover.'
  6. Close the top cover.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to home position...'
  7. The screen displays 'Calibrating...'.
    The calibration process takes several minutes.
    You can stop the calibration process at any time. Press the key for 'Cancel' to stop the calibration process.

Doc. Cover Open displayed


That usually means some sensor giving you trouble.

This is what brother recomends:

How do I clear the message Cover Open or Please Close Cover from the display?


The message Cover Open or Pls Close Cover may appear if the front cover
for the drum was not closed securely. Verify the cover is closed
securely by pressing the cover release button located in the front of
the unit below the Output Tray Support Flap and open the front cover.
Close the cover until it clicks into place.

If the message continues to appear on the display verify the drum and
toner assembly is installed correctly by following the steps listed
below:

1. Press the cover release button located in the front of the unit and
open the front cover.

2. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge from the unit by lifting it
up and out. Place it on a drop cloth or disposable paper to avoid
scattering toner.

3. Hold down the blue lock lever located on the right side of the drum
and lift the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

4. Reinstall the toner cartridge into the drum unit by inserting it in
the drum until it clicks into place

5. Reinstall the drum unit into the unit. Make sure it is securely in
place.

6. Close the cover until it clicks into place


If that doesn't fix it, I guess you will have to talk to their support people.


Good luck!

Error mesage


No solution, but I have the same problem. THe printer starts up fine, I hear no grinding noises or other "funny" nioses, and then displays no error message... UNTIL I ask it to print. Then I get a message that says, "Pls (please) Open Cover".

I open the cover and it says "Please Close Cover".

I close the cover and it says, "Please Open Cover"

and this happens forever!

Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help me?
