    Our printer has been great... however, it just started printing fuzzy pages. The test print comes out perfectly, but our printing is junk. I changed the maintenance kit about a month ago and it was fine until today. Any suggestions?

In your troubleshootine menu, I think it is, on the screen, scroll until you find fix imaging problems, or something like that.
There is one for removing streaks and the other for removing smudges.
I would suggest running both and that should resolve your issue.
I doubt your maintence kit is bad, but I would pull it out and check to see if it is extremelty dirty.
Try those two procedures first.
There will be instructions on your User Guide CD on how to run those.

    Also, the print head may be binding on one of its cables, or the print block has ink in it and is not getting into the correct position.

Xerox Phaser 8550 is printing green and yellow with some gray color on all the print job, even after I replaced the ink loader, the black color came back but still getting only green and yellow. The ink...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).
If you have loads of missing jets, run a couple of head cleans, if you see improvement, it is worth running some more, if not, try switching off overnight and rebooting next day. If it still won't clear, you may have a faulty printhead.
If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.
Hope this helps.

Is the Drum unit clean?
Often the Drum Maintenance kit can get dirty, and not clean the Drum properly, which can lead to jams.
Also, the drive cam for the Drum Maintenance kit can fail. This means not enough cleaning pressure is applied to the Drum unit, and it can't clean it properly, causing jams.

good luck

Xerox 8550 Printer Magenta ink not working.


You need to run the eliminate light stripes. it should be in the menu, under troubleshooting, print quality issues. you can run this up to 3 times. you want the run the basic light stripes, not the advanced. If after 3 times running this, you are still missing jets, your printhead is bad. If you are using aftermarket ink, media sciences might cover the repair, if not, the printhead costs as much as a new machine. about $650+labor.

Xerox Phaser 8550 drum issue?


The life of the drum is unlimited, it is just a solid aluminum drum.
The usual suspect when the drum is not cleaning is the maintenance kit. It was not stored on end was it ? If so the lubricant would have run to one end and not clean correctly.
The transfix roller could be failing, although that is not many pages on the printer.
You are using OEM ink and not third party? If so try new ink.
The last thing you could have is a bad wiper blade not cleaning between pages.
Drum heating is very unlikely. If it was not running hot enough, there are enough sensors in the machine that one would shut off if it were not heating properly.

Xerox 8550/DN Printing with usb problem.


I will offer some thoughts.
But thats weird .
Have you tried a new driver? Yeah I know, that doesn't make a lot of sense to me if the image is fuzzy, but since it will print a internal pattern clear and not a print sent from the computer, the driver may be the issue. I stress MAY be the issue.
What I suspect more is the drum encoder. When I hear about that machine bluring, that is the most likely cause. It picks up silicon lubricant from the maintenance kit and normally causes blurrs.
It is on the right side of the machine ( viewed from the front), track it from the drum shaft. It has a clear plastic cover over it, but it needs to be cleaned with alcohol to disipate the silicon lubricant from it.
No no not drinking alcohol, although that can make prints blurry LOL.. Hope you have a sense of humor. To many people today don't....................

Printer error meaning


I found a couple of references to the error ?07,010.43?, it?s a generic message with lots of possible causes. Xerox?s official web site says to turn your printer off a contact their technical support. I did find one reference that said for them it turned out to be a wiper assembly stuck between the print head and the roller. I?ve never owned a Xerox printer (I?m an HP guy) so I can?t help you beyond that. Xerox?s support site for the phaser series is here: http://www.office.xerox.com/color-printers/phaser-8500-8550/sprt-enus.html
