    Phaser 8550 prints 64 pages junk after startup on print command. Does not print what was wanted.  At times after canceling original print job does print.

Hi,

You cannot turn off the start up page on this machine. The special character pages are called a post script error. You could install a PCL driver for the machine or try changing some settings in the Driver to "RAW". Use the link below for any other questions.

Phaser 8500 error code 19,003.48:64663


19.003:48 is the error code 64663is the number of pages the unit has printed. the error indicates a power difference of +- 20% when trying to drive the printhead. The issue is the Electronics Module (System logic and power) or the Wave Amplifier (Printhead Controller). Both of the parts are fairly easy to replace. If it is the wave amp it is a somewhat affordable part.if it is the EM you should replace the printer. It isn't worth the fix.

Phaser 8560N prints multiple pages when powered on


This was due to the TFTP (PXE) setting on the printer set to on. No more wasted paper at startup/wakeup after changing setting to off.

I have a xerox phaser 8500. At startup it states


The magenta toner (powder) in the cartridge is "piled up" to one side.

1. Remove the magenta cartridge.
2. Holding the cartridge ends with your hands, "rock" it side to side a few times, then "roll" it forward/backwards a few times.
3. Put back in printer.... it should work ok.
4. If not, then power OFF the printer and unplug the power cord from the wall or power strip.
5. Turn ON the printer with the power cord disconnected.
6. Plug power cord back in and turn on printer.
7. It should work ok now.

Hope this helps!

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???

Phaser 8500 reservoir heater took too long 13,266.44 error


Most likely you have a bad print head. There is an outside chance that the electronics module is bad, but with the monitors acting as you describe, I would say the print head heater is malfunctioning of the sensor is defective. Either way you have to replace the print head. No uncommon.

Infrequent use of Xerox Phaser 8500


The reason he told you that is because ;
if left on permanently the fuser unit has a lamp ( nowadays the newer ones use a ceramic) the lamp continually comes on to keep the fuser warm and ready for you to print.which may cause the lamp to burn prematurely, most business keep theirs on all day with out the sleep mode( too busy to wait to warm up),

But, when you use the sleep mode most models do not turn on the lamp ( if it does it only puts out minimal power) but keep the power ready, which is why when you go to print it takes awhile to warm up.
The lamps are very resilient and last several years before having to change.

Most likely your driver is corrupted. I would go to xerox.com and download a newer version and install a new driver.
Power off and power on your printer also.
