Replace the maintenace kit and then in the menus run eliminate light stripes and eliminate smears.
There really isnt much else to do.
What you do when you run the light stripes and smears modes the machine removes all the ink from the print head, turns on a compressor and blows out the jets on the print head.
There really isn't a "cleaning " procedure as with a laser printer. If the maintenance kit is good, it pretty much maintanes itself.

Xerox Phaser 8400 prints pdfs in half page


I've seen this issue on some of my other Xerox machines (not the 8400 specifically). 9 times out of 10 the solution is to update both the printer driver to the newest version, as well as updating Adobe Reader to the newest version.

Here are the links to each:

XEROX PHASER 8400 SAYS CLEANING SHEET NEEDED. THE MACHINE JAMS EVERY TIME WE TRY TO FEEED IT IN.


There is probably a tiny sheet of paper stuck inside the printer somewhere which is causing the jam. You basically have to find out where the previous jam was and check the rollers to see if they are clear.

If it is cuz the cleaning sheet is too stiff, then you may need to feed it from the manual feed tray.

Xerox Phaser 8400: Our printer keeps jamming. Some of the ink is staying on the right edge of the drum and it seems as the paper goes through the printer it gets stuck on that ink. We use only Xerox ink...


There are no less than 5 places on this model where you might clear a paper jam. Is it possible you still have a small bit of paper stuck somewhere?

Xerox Phaser 8400 error code 37,004.40:27697


The majority of the time that code means the print head has failed.
That is a print head heater error.
You can find some places that sell print heads for about $150 , you would have to google the model number for that.
Xerox would charge $750 for a new print head, uninstalled.

PHASER 8400


There is an encoder on the drum drive motor that picks up lubricant from the maintenance kit. It may simply need cleaned, if cleaning doesnt work, it will need to be replaced.
Xerox has parts lists on the xerox.com site for that product if you need to locate it.
