Xerox XC 1040

My copier will not quit running and will not print. Once I turn it off and then back on again it continues to cycle and will not shut off. Do I need to replace the toner cartridge? Thanks for you help, Terri

Trohanna... Yes. You most likely need a new toner. The toner sensor on all small Xerox copiers is internal of the cartridge itself. The machine is running and running trying to add toner, but not realizing that there's none to add. replace your toner unit, and I'm 98% confident that it will solve your problem. Please let me know how this works out for you as I am trying to keep a gauge of how well my solutions work for people. Thanks.

Xerox WorkCentre C2424: turned on, runs thru tests, initializing and then shuts off and starts the cycle again. The cycle continues but never resolves.


1. Power machine off and wait until completely off. 2. unplug power cord from wall. 3. with power cord STILL DISCONNECTED turn machine on and off again. 4. WAIT 60 SECONDS 5. plug power cord back in and turn back on
If this does not resolve the issue call for service.
Hope it helps!

Xerox XD or XC Series Copier Drum Light Drum Unit Reset Procedure


To reset the drum light on just about any Xerox XC or XD series copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
This works on nearly all Xerox XD and XC Series copiers.

Xerox XC and XD series copier H3 or H4 error code reset procedure


To reset the H3 or H4 condition on just about any Xerox XC or XD series copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies.
Now press the print button.
The machine should reset and the code should be gone.
9 times out of 10 this is a false code that pops up due to power surges or noise.
If the code comes back this means you have a heater lamp or thermal fuse (more common) failure in the fusing area and will need service.
This procedure will work on all Xerox XD and XC models.

The fuser error light is on and my Xerox XC 1040 copier will not work. There is no error codes displayed


The drum light can be reset via the control panel. Especially if your copies were good before the light came on. The drum unit is the cartridge that is located right next to the toner cartridge. Reset the light using the following reset procedure:

My Xerox XC 1040 lights are on but it will not copy. There is a H and a 4 that comes up on the small screen. We have had several lightning storms in this area lately. We have turned it off and also...


The lightning can cause this code. The good news is that also means it is most likely a false code. Reset this code by pressing the Clear key then the Far Left key on the control panel also known as the exposure mode key. Then press clear again followed by far left again. So in short form press C, Far Left, C, Far Left. If done fast enough and properly your display should go blank. Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies and press the print button. This should reset your H4 and the machine should be restored to operational. If the code comes back within a minute or so then you have a failure in the fuser unit (part that gets hot)
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya

Xc 1040 xerox Red light is flashing and the copier will not


On a XC 1040 machine either there is a jam on the fuser, the fuser switch fell out of place, or the sensor swich arm fell off the registration sensor.
Since we cannot see the machine we might understand what is taking place.
If the machine is turned off and back on and there is no red light, then the machine must be able to attempt to make a copy. If a copy does not come out, then there is problely some worn feed rolls.
If when the machine is turned on and there is a red light then th There can be some bad paper feed cluthes as well.There might be a paper stuck at either fuser assemly or paper feed roller areas.
Provide more description about the visuals on the machine.
Good luck.

Can you help us with a copier problem


That sounds like your toner is empty. Sometimes that cartridge runs out or low on ink and just doesn't display.
What is happening is the density sensor is looking for a nice black patch and the patch it is looking for is gray or almost blank and it stays in a constant cycle of trying to make that ink patch dark enough to produce a copy,
I would try a new toner.
