Tonor along edge of paper on my Xerox WorkCentre XL2140df

This machine is great. I've loved it. A couple months ago it started leaving a residue of loose toner along the right edge of the paper. I tried cleaning the machine thoroughly which temporarily would make a little difference. Then I finally replaced the toner cartridge and it seemed all better. Well, it has now come back. This printer does not get a lot of use so it is not after many copies. Oh, AND Xerox no long supports this machine with service. AND I just hate to throw things into the landfill.

I also am at a loss on how to change the default paper tray. The properties at the printer window will not take the changes.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I would think you just have another bad cartridge. have you simply tried shaking it side to side? May just be built up on one side, but those cartridges are notorious for going bad. You need to vacuum the machine out well also. That toner and developer get in all those little plastic supports and can cause toner to dump.I would say the chance of a bad cartridge again is about 95 percent.
The printing problem. Have you tried downloading the driver from the Xerox.com site? Or simply reloading the driver. Sounds like its corrupted somehow. And when you change the tray, you are clicking apply?

My dishwasher suddenly started having a white residue to cover the dishes. This white residue is also along the edges at the bottom of the door and bottom front of the interior of the disherwasher and...


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that the outlet pipe the pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe or the pump or selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

We have a Xerox Phaser 7400. The output is dirty along the bottom 1/2 inch of the page.


start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at it's drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to loose toner residue underneath the cartridge. if not then the fuser area has to be cleaned. Wipe the area clean with a lint free cloth, do not use compressed air.....


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Trying to change paper size from A4 to 8.5x11 on a Xerox Workcentre M123


  1. Pull out the paper tray.
  2. If necessary, slide the paper tray edge guides so that the guides are open.
    1. To adjust the side and rear guides, pinch the guide lever on each guide and slide the guides to their new position.
    2. To secure the guides in position, release the levers.
  3. Load the paper against the left-hand side of the paper tray. Paper can be loaded either short edge feed or long edge feed.
  4. If necessary, slide the paper edge guides so that they just touch the edge of the paper stack.

    NOTE: When loading standard size paper, set the edge guides onto the notches on the paper tray to match the paper size.

  5. Close the paper tray.
  6. Set the machine to detect the paper size automatically, or manually specify the required size.

    NOTE: Paper sizes detected by the machine vary depending on the Machine Administrator setting. See the Related Items below for additional information.

  7. If the type of paper has changed in the paper tray, then the paper type must be changed on the Control Panel as well. See the To modify the paper type on the Control Panel section below.
Normally just the guides need to be set correctly in the paper tray, The tray size sensing switched may be bad or the actuator on the tray may have slipped position.

1 Answer

The copy will print, but parts of the copy are smeared and can be wiped off with fingers leaving nothing on the copy in those areas.


Bad fusing unit. The fusing unit is the assembly that get hot and "fuses" the toner onto the paper just before the paper exits the machine. If you or someone you know is mechanically inclined you could replace the unit yourself. $150 to $180 for the fusing unit.
precisionroller.com has them. Part# R3200
Replacement consists of removing the back cover so you can unplus the wiring. The opening the right side door and removing 2 mounting screws.
Good Luck and Thank You for uning Fixya.

Troubleshoot xerox workcentre xl2140df we have an error code E5?


An E-5 Normally comes from the paper path actuator that detcts the second side of a copy is hanging up.
In the fuser area there are some corrigated looking parts of the fuser exit guide that the actuator is most likely hitting or hanging up on.
You may have to take a pair of diagional cutters and snip a small section of that out.E-5 is a jam on duplex copies on that machine.
