Question about Xerox WorkCentre XL2130f Laser Printer

1 Answer

Workcentre XL2130f does not ready itslef sometimes

Had it a long time. Finally need to replace starter toner cartridge. Takes a long time to ready itself; sometimes need to re-poer up. Use only for photocopying rather than computer printing or fax. How can I ell if the drum needs replacing? Where can I get a user's manual? Is it worth servicing? Can I service it myself.

Lots of questions! Thanks.

Normally when that happens the machine need a general cleaning. Also take the toner cartridge and shake it side to side to be sure there is enough ink where the density sensor is.
There is a light on the machine that will start flashing when the drum has about 500 pages left on it.
What you most likely have to do is take the toner cart and drum out, clean in that area well, Take a flashlamp and cloth dampened with some alcohol and clean any sensors , lamps you see. Also look to the left, you will see an opening about 1/4 of an inch high and 6 inches wide, That is your laser window. You want to take. most likely a Q-tip and clean that glasss inside that slot.
On thre right side door there also is a tranasfer wire, it is in an opening in a metal bracket that will need cleaned. Be cautious since it is a very thin wire. Dampen a q - tip with alcohol and gently wipe back and forth to clean that wire.
Then remove the screws around the glass, lift out the glass and clean the underside of the glass , lamp and mirrors.
The XD2130 is really a good machine, if you don't remember repalcing a drum on it, then you must not have a very high volume on it, I would even pay someone to clean it for you if you like.
Xerox doesn't service it any longer, but parts and reputable people still service those on a daily basis. Its a good machine,

I have purchased a remanuf toner drum for my xerox xl 2130f copier and installed-- everything fit very well and seems to seat well/ only I still get a j2 signal upon the startup and I am lacking for...

Most likely the "remanufactured" cartridge does not have the counter reset flag in the proper position or is missing completely. Just reset the counter via the service mode by pressing these keys in sequence and as quickly as possible (within 4 seconds).
Press Clear, then exposure mode (far left key) the clear then exposure mode again. So in short form C, Far Left, C, Far Left. If done properly the display will go blank. Now key in 24 as if you wanted to make 24 copies. Now press the print button. Now enter 7 then press print again. You should now see flashing 000.
Press C a few times to exit and the drum light/J2 should now be gone.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Xerox WorkCentre XD125F- need manual

You can get the spec sheet and the user's guide as PDFs here:
The spec sheet has the toner cartridge and drum cartridge part numbers (listed as Supplies)

Toner Cartridge 6R914;
Drum Cartridge 13R551

When copier has printed about 18,000 pages the J2 drum cartridge light will come on. The unit will print about another 1,000 pages before the unit stops working until the drum cartridge is replaced.

I hope this helps.

Xerox WCP 416 , it showed message replace drum cartridge

It sounds like you are replacing the toner cartidges NOT the Drum Unit. Drum is located behind the toner cartidge and you will see it after removing toner. Pretty common mistake :)

Xerox workcentre Xl2130f copier printer error j1

that is the message for low or out of toner. What you are doing by tapping it is just lostening the reemaining ink in the cartridge. If the cartridge is new, have it replaced where ever you purchased it because most likely its defective.

A CH code means the toner cartridge is not being sensed.
Could just be not seated properly. Open the front and remove and reseat the toner cartridge.
It may be empty also.
