Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer
We seldom use the color printer (phaser 8500), every now & then it prints out cleaning page by itself draining all 4 colors in a full page of checkered.
It consumes and drain all the ink for no reason and this solid inks are not cheap.
If there is a way to turn off the cleaning page, that will be great. Please send me solution to this problem.
Actually what is happening is your machine is going into the power save mode and staying there for a long time.
What happens then is you get a full warmup. When the machine warms up, it will turn on the compressor and drain the resivour because Xerox wants a "fresh": supply of ink in the print head.
Its excruciatingly expensive and wasteful.
Here is something that can help. I am not sure you can completely disable the energy save mode. Thanks Al Gore...
NOTE: To save energy, the printer enters a power saver, low-energy consumption mode after a predefined period of time since its last activity. In this mode, most printer electrical systems are shut down. When a print job is sent to the printer, the printer enters the Warm-up Mode. You can also warm up the printer by pressing the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
If the printer is going into Power Saver mode too often and you do not want to wait while the printer warms up, increase the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
Modify the timeout value:
NOTE: Select a larger timeout value to extend the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
