Question about Xerox Phaser 8400 Laser Printer
Dropout of blocks on test page in vertical stripes at the sides and in the middle. have used your advice to clean the parts I can get to, and did not see any improvement. Then the IT helper I have downloaded your directions for dealing with smears and went through everything with no results.
Do I need a new drum or something?
Is the expense of repair worth it?
Otherwise the printer is reliable and fast.
Another thing you might help with is how to adjust/calibrate the color. I have a MAC G5 running OSX and have apple cinema HD display; the colors on the printed matter are always washed out compared to the screen with reds coming out brown, yellow not bright enough.
Are these problems related?
If all that did not work, then you need a print head. They are pretty exoensive, If you purchase one from Xerox it will be in the 700 dollar range. You can look for secondatry markets, but I am not sure who they would be for Phaser solid ink printers.
The dry ink, ( poweder) ink phasers make better prints than the solid ink printers now. I would look into one of those if you are looking for exceptioinal print quality with a much more reasonable cost factor.
They have developed an ink where the particles align, The quality is remarkable.
