What you can try is going onto the Xerox.com site and loading what is call Jet Substitution it will change the ports being used.
That could help.
Load it to your laptop and then run. Sometimes helps.
Unfortunatly that is a very expensive print head.

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.

That is a print head tilt error. Either the print head pivot block is contaminated with ink or the wiper blade is tacked to the print head.
Let me know if you want to try to resolve it yourself, I will send you directions.
