Question about Xerox Tektronix Phaser 850N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Phaser 850N prints commands, not proper file

I have a Phaser 850N and 850DP. My DP started having all kinds of problems, so I made the N my primary printer. Since I was only going to use the 1 printer, I took the memory from the DP and put it into the N, bringing total memory to 256. For the first few days, every time I printed it would kick up a filed to print box, but after a couple of minutes, would print the file. Now, it still kicks the fail to print box, takes almost 3 minutes and then prints a partial file (as in, part of the page will print and leave blank info throughout), then a second page of nonsense command codes. I've put both memory bars in together before, not sure why it's doing this now. Any clues?

Could be defective memory module. Try taking the RAM back out. You can get replacement RAM from Crucial. You can make your N into a DP by switching the NVRAM chip (or the complete main board).

Xerox Phaser7300dt. After paper jam, the printer keeps printing the same page


That's normal for any printer. It's trying to pick up the printing of the entire document.
If it didn't print the same page again after you clear the jam, you would be missing a page.

Printing PDF on 8400 - example 265K PDF created from Acrobat 9 spools over USB over 22Meg and never prints. Any other files, Doc, XLS, we've tested print fine and fast.


I've ran across this a few times and the only thing that ever seemed to help was turning of print spooling so it would print direct to the printer. It ties up the computer while it prints but it does work. Usually in other programs when you see this kind of error the proper printer hasn't been selected or the paper size is wrong or the file being printed is corupt.

PCL5 OUT OF MEMORY Phaser 8860


After reading some similar stories, I simply restarted the Xerox Phaser printer via the menu on the physical printer. I theorize perhaps the Phasers on board memory could have been bogged down from all the pictures involved in the problem documents and all the size problems associated with large files.

PDF documents do not print completely on my Xerox Phaser 8500


I am having the same problem. Sometimes my Xerox Phaser 8500 prints a PDF or web page fine, and other times I get pages and pages of what looks like PostScript code. I thought I had installed the most recent printer drivers, We are using primarily Macs with OS 10.4 or 10.5. One recent change is that we connected the printer to an Airport Express using a USB cable, which is sweet when it works correctly....any ideas???

My printer phaser 7400 can not start no signal no thing


Make sure the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or multi-outlet strip. These devices will limit the amount of power to the machine, causing it to not initialize properly.
