Hi,

Looks like you don't use the Magenta ink that much, on this machine because it is so hot all the time after a while the magenta can get a strange brown colour and the cyan can get like a aqua marine colour. All you can do is purge the magenta by printing magenta sample pages or just wait until it goes away.

Also you could try the following Tek Colour correction (but It probably won't work). See below


TekColor
Description
Automatic Applies the best color correction to each graphic element: text, artwork, and photographs Office Color sRGB Display: Approximates the colors on a computer display.
sRGB Vivid: Produces brighter, more saturated colors than sRGB Display. Press Match SWOP Press: Matches specifications for Web Offset Publications.
Euroscale: Matches Fogra glossy paper specification.
Commercial: Approximates U.S. commercial press target.
SNAP Press: Matches specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production. None Applies no color correction. Use with other color management tools, such as International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles, ColorSync, or the PANTONE Color Chart for the printer. Black & White Converts all colors to shades of gray

From the workstation, select the color correction in a supported driver.
Microsoft Windows 98 SE / ME / 2000 / XP/ Server 2003 / NT 4.x Operating Systems (OS):

NOTE: Some of the color corrections are grouped under Office Color or Press Match.

  1. Within an application, click [File] from the toolbar, and then select [Print] from the menu. The Print window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Properties] button located on the top, right of the window. The Properties window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [TekColor] tab.
  4. Select the required color correction.

My 8550 is stuck initializing


If the machine has a stick of ram clipped onto the main board then i would suspect it has gone faulty. That usually stops a xerox from booting. Try another stick of ram.

I own a phaser-8550 and the problem is that the printer seems to wake up when it is in sleep mode. If I turn it off and back on the next day, jobs print OK until it goes to sleep and it forgets to wake up....


There are two stages to the sleep mode, One is a low power condition. That is the real sleep mode. There is also a time that will shut the machine off. You can go into the machine setups and shut that timer off.

Xerox Phaser 8550 having color quality issue


If you are using third party ink sticks contact the manufacture and they will, if you use enough of thier product, send you a new print head and send out a tech to change it. Media Science is the most likely source of third party ink.
You can also switch to Xerox ink sticks and the colors will be correct after several purges to get rid of the old ink.

You've got some physical problem inside the printer.

See:

http://www.office.xerox.com/printers/color-printers/phaser-8500-8550/sprt-enca.html

If your printer is networked, it can actually communicate with our support knowledge base directly, and troubleshoot itself.
