SOURCE: Maintenance kit for Xerox 8500
Contact the company that you purchased the maintenance kit from.
They should have the solution or send you a replacement.
I know of no way to change the Xerox printer to match up with a non Xerox maintenance kit. They would not set the machine up to accept non Xerox products since that voids warranties.

I had a similar problem. I discovered that the imaging drum was too hot. There is a temperature sensor that rides on the drum surface to monitor the temperature. You can see it if you lift the exit cover on the right side. The sensor is white, and has a thin probe which rides on the drum surface. There's a single screw accessible from the right side which holds it in place. A hole on that side will allow a screwdriver (torx) to access the screw and the little unit can be removed (be patient- it can be done!). Clean the probe with some alcohol and replace it. The problem is caused when the ink on the drum smears because it's too hot. Dirt (wax and oil)under the sensor probe prevents contact with the drum, and makes the printer think the drum is too cold.

First of all make sure it is the right kit. The part numbers for teh 8550 and 2424 are very close, one ends in 675 the other in 657, so they have been known to be mixed up.
then here is the documentation..
The machine displays the Replace Maintenance Kit after the Maintenance Kit has been replaced.
There may two causes for this issue.

6975 I know of nothing that references.
I honestly don't know where you could get a manual. Other then try googling "the parts drop" and calling them. Talk to Britt.
Normally that print block is sticky or the cleaning blade is stuck to the print head causing that error.

No. That maintenance kit has a chip attached to it. That will reset the machine, It is just a white roll impregnated with silicon to clean and maintain the surface on the drum.
It will take replacement of the kit to reset the machine.

Remove the 2 screws circled in red below.
Close the back door, and then flip the printer so that it rests on its face.
Next swing open the paper guard which shields the back of Tray 2 when it is installed.
Looking inside the Tray 2 cavity, use a flatblade screwdriver to release the two tabs--one on each side of the rear cover.
Next remove the rear cover from the printer by pulling down and away.
Fuser Installation Continued . . .
Pry the grey DIMM cover loose and remove it.
Use a small flatblade screwdriver to disengage the tab on the connector shown below and unplug the connector.
Next (on the right hand side) remove the small black plastic cover, located near the green fuser gear, which hides the other fuser wires.
Then unplug the two connectors shown below and free the yellow/white wire from its guide clasp.
Now remove the four screws holding the fuser in place (shown below).
Now remove the black plastic piece shown below, the duplexer inlet guide. Gently pry the tabs on both ends loose and slide/rotate the guide back towards the fuser to release it.
Now you can remove the fuser, just pull it straight out towards you. Don't install the new fuser until you've replaced the main motor gear, as shown below.
Replacing Fuser Drive Gear
With the fuser removed, look into the printer and locate the main fuser drive gear on the left side of the fuser cavity (gear circled in red below).
Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the gear's release tab and remove the gear by sliding it off its metal bar.
Slide the new gear onto the metal bar--make sure the gear's release tab faces outwards so it will be accessible again--and lock the gear firmly in place.
Now repeat the fuser removal process backwards as you install the New Fuser:
Insert the new fuser and replace the four fuser screws. Replace the black plastic duplexer inlet guide, making sure both tabs click in place. Re-plug the single connector on the left side, and the two connectors on the right side. Replace the wire cover on the right side. Reinstall the DIMM cover. Finally, replace the back cover with its screws.
This is a difficult installation which should be done by a technician. Good luck with it !
