Question about Xerox Phaser 8400 Laser Printer
The Xerox Phaser 8400 powers on then errors: 07,010.43:126070 and does nothing more. Any suggestions? Is this a hardware issue?
Yeah it is a hardware issue. The code you are getting relates to the print head tilt and/or side to side movement.
One of 2 things occur to cause that code, these 2 things cause that code about 90 percent of the time.
1. When you remove the ( looking from the front of the machine as refrence) left cover, about 1/2 of the way back, on the bottom portion of the frame, you will see a 1 inch x 1 inch steel pivot block. Often times runoff from the excess tray or seepage down the print head will cause ink to build up in that block. That will not allow the print head to pivot back and forth properly causing that code. There is a spring over that block you need to clip aside to remove the block. It may be very sticky and a little difficult to remove. Channel locking pliers will normally allow you to remove it with some effort. I suggest putting the block in some pretty hot water . It makes the ink softer when hot and easier to remove.
You want to also picko ut all the excess ink in that are that you can to keep the block from gumming up again. Removing the print head is the best way to clean it, but that is pretty challenging if you donr know hte printer.
Now issue 2, is the print head wiper tacking to the print head. If the machine is not powered down properly or is unplug, or a power failure can cause this blade to be in the wrong position and stick to the print head. To access that, you want to remove the right and left covers, and also the ink loader, ( Where you load the ink sticks). It is held in by tabs and 2 plugs. Once you remove that ink loader you have access to the print head drum area. Look between the print head and drum for a pinkish colored blade, Gently detack it from the print head and run the cleaning cycle on the printer when reassambled.
The print wiper clutch could be going back causing the blade ot tack, but not as likely.
That code is definatly an issue with print head movement, and most of the time these 2 issues will resolve the problem.
Let me know, There are a couplf of other weird things that can cause this, But I doubt they are an issue.
