That normally is caused by a dirty maintenance kit. Often times they dry out and do not put enough lubricant on the drum, I would start with a new mainteanace lit., you may also have a bad wiper blade, although thats less likely.

Can you please tell me how to print double sided? Thanks


Xerox Phaser 8400 does not support double sided prints. You have to have a Duplex Unit for Phaser 8400 part number 097S03177 to be able to print double sided. If you have the duplex unit, on the Print dialog box just click Preferences and under 2-Sided Printing select 2-Sided Print then Apply.

My manual was in a strange language. How do I


Your manual can be found here.

Printing on both sides of paper You can print on both sides of a paper; duplex. Before printing, decide how you want your document oriented. You can only use this feature with Letter, Legal, A4, US Folio, or Oficio sized paper.

Do not print on both sides of the special media, such as labels, envelopes, or thick paper to print on both sides of paper. It may cause a paper jam or damage the machine.
  1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening Printing Preferences.)
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. From the Double-sided Printing section, select the binding option you want.
    • Printer Default: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the machine.
    • None
    • Long Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in bookbinding.

    • Short Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in calendars.

    • Reverse Double-Sided Printing: Check this option to reverse the print order when duplex printing.
  4. Click the Paper tab, select the Paper Options.
  5. Click OK or Print until you exit the Print window.

If your machine does not have a duplex unit, you should complete the printing job manually. The machine prints every other page of the document first. After that , a message appears on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printing job.

Good Luck!

Printer is printing double


Define "double".

Do you mean "bold" fonts, rather than "regular" fonts?

Do you mean not "advancing" the paper, line-by-line, and "overprinting"?

Do you mean "double-sided", rather than "single-sided" ?

Cannot print double sided


On the machine when a 2 sided document is inserted in the document handler, select the 2x2 button on the console. Press the start button and the machine will feed the document in, and do a reverse of the document for the second scan. In the paper feeder, the machine feeds the paper in and reversed the copy back into the machine, flips the copy then feeds the copy back for the second side to be copied.
If you do not have a m20i, the lower model numbers will not do two sided copies.

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???

2 sided copying


You just select 2-sided printing in the print dialog box. I think it's on the finishing tab. I'm assuming you aren't trying to print on 2nd side of pre-printed stock. That would be a different issue.

Phaser 7300n Printing on Double Sided Glossy Paper


At first I didn't think the paper was the problem, but I looked up the specs on it and is seems to be a paper designed for an offset press.
I suspect after reading the information on the paper that the coating is not designed for the high temperatures of a laser printiers fuser heat of over 350 degrees.
I do suspect the paper is the issue.
sounds like you are melting the coating.
