Question about Xerox WorkCentre C2424DN All-In-One Laser Printer
That is a problem with the print head movement,
Normally on a 2424 you get ink spill from the catch tray, It spills into the print head block and causes the print head not to pivot properly.
Remove the scanner and document feeder assembly, remove the two screws on the back covers and pull up and out on the side of the covers. The front cover will also come off.
Now on the left side, looking from the front, you will see a stainless steel block. about 1 inch square, it is on the lower part of the frame about 2/3 of the way back. It will most likely be contaminated with yellow ink. You will have to slip the spring clip off of the block and use some channel locking pliers to work the block off, clean it well, the print head shaft also, then remove as much of the excess ink as you can from the machine,
If that doesnt fix your problem let me know,the cleaning blade may be tacked to the print head. But check the print head block first. that causes that code most of the time.

SOURCE: xerox phaser 8560 DX error
This fault occurs due to the printhead being stuck in the tilted position.
There are many reasons why this fault will occur, too many to mention.
More often than not, your problem will require the printhead and process gear to be re-aligned in order to get a reboot but sometimes it is possible to get a reboot by doing the following;
Turn the printer off, wait ten seconds then turn it back on again. Wait for the printer to start warming up to about 5 or 10 percent. At this point, switch the machine off again by the machine switch NOT your wall/plug switch. Wait ten seconds and switch on again. Now let it run through its normal cycle. The success rate for this method is small, possibly only 1 in 30 machines will recover.
The reason this will sometimes work is that, when you turn the machine off from the warm up, it powers down using its proper head parking routine, you will notice, it takes a while to shut down. If the original fault was due to say a power cut or someone pulling the plug out it is possible for the printer to find its home position and boot ok.
Unfortunately, a lot of the time, the reason for the fault is printer related and such, this method does not work. But it is always worth a try.
Hope this helps.
