Question about Xerox Phaser 6125 Laser Printer
Originally the ink wouldn't fuse to the page unless you used regular paper. Now even with a new fuser assembly it still doesn't stay on the paper and it leaves a shadow of the print image all down the page. I've used all the maintenance menu tasks to refresh the drum, clear developer etc, but it still won't print cleanly. This printer is less than two years old. Any other suggestions?

How Brave is Jan?
Doubt it be the fuser(100 000life), "just magenta dots".... fuser would be "all smudged" or "black marks" , "the print rubs off" , "paper is creasing or jamming"
Can prove it by stopping a print (open door) when paper is1/2 way threw machine, you need to stop it before it goes threw the hot bit, so you can tell if the hot bit (fuser) puts the marks on the paper.
Transfer roller one would expect to effect whole print Smudged/Faint,uneven density
It will be the imaging unit ( 30 000 pagelife Ouch$ ) or possible leaking toner (if aftermarket)
Remove imaging unit and inspect film you should find image of lines, dots are usually chips or sticky stuff on drum surface, carefull no oily human fingers on surface please.
When stopping machine mid print and perfecting your timing, pull out the imaging unit and look at replica of your print notice if marked and where.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Phaser 8560 smudging problem
previous image on a copy are from two things
1-the blanking lamps that erase the image from the drum from the previous copy, and making it ready for the next image is bad
2- the fuser roller is bad and retaining the image on it.

Hi jbasset285: Your printhead may be bad do to third party ink.
Try these steps first.
Diagnosing Print-Quality Problems
The Troubleshooting Print-Quality Page provides a good overview of the most
common print quality problems. To print the Troubleshooting Print-Quality Page,
follow these steps:
1. From the Control Panel, scroll to Troubleshooting, then press OK.
2. Scroll to Print Quality Problems, then press OK.
3. Scroll to Troubleshooting Print Quality Page, then press OK.
The Troubleshooting Print Quality Page includes instructions for printing the
Eliminate Light Stripes test print. These instructions are also provided on the next
page of this manual. The Eliminate Light Stripes test print indicates individual weak
or missing jets or an obstruction in the imaging path that affects a vertical band down
the entire page. Also, you may see color variation from jet to jet on the Eliminate
Light Stripes test print. Some variation is normal, occasionally occurs, and usually
self-corrects within a few printed pages. If a print-quality problem is not resolved
with the information provided in the Diagnosing Print-Quality

That's very weird, I have been thinking about your problem a lot.
What I am wondering is if somehow there is a piece of paper between the print head and drum, but that should be moved out of the way by the wiper blade assembly.
There is a compressor that creates the pressure to spray the ink onto the page. That could have failed, or one of the hoses disconnected.
The other thing is the print head itself. But if this was a sudden thing, it really isn't likely the print head jets failed all at once. That would be bizarre considering the amount of jets on that print head.
If there were an electrical problem with the print head, the machine would definitely give you a fault code, and if the print head was not going into the proper position you would no doubt get an 07,xxx.xxx code.
I have to conclude the compressor or a bad or somehow disconnected hose. The compressor is near the ( looking from the front) the right side , near the top rear of the machine, It is a black box and has a hose with a wire wrapping around it.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8550 drum issue?
The life of the drum is unlimited, it is just a solid aluminum drum.
The usual suspect when the drum is not cleaning is the maintenance kit. It was not stored on end was it ? If so the lubricant would have run to one end and not clean correctly.
The transfix roller could be failing, although that is not many pages on the printer.
You are using OEM ink and not third party? If so try new ink.
The last thing you could have is a bad wiper blade not cleaning between pages.
Drum heating is very unlikely. If it was not running hot enough, there are enough sensors in the machine that one would shut off if it were not heating properly.
