Question about Xerox Phaser 7700 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Erratic black fusing

I have a Xerox Phaser 7700gx. I use a macbook pro and an imac. There are two other mac book pro's on the network. The problem exists when printing from any computer. The problem is this:excessive application of black toner and poor fusing of the black toner. When there is a lot of black, the paper will roll up in the fuser and jam BUT this only happens on certain applications. PDF's always jam, quicken checks come out with thick poorly fused text. Safari may give a good header and poor text. Multi color documents always print with perfect color but the black falls off. Claris works prints absolutely perfectly! I placed my black logo on a .rtf documennt. The .rtf text was perfect but the logo fell off the page!

This problem is driving me nuts and the printer is useless. Other forums I posted to gave up. Service outfits refuse to deal with it. I installed a new fuser, new Xerox black toner, and tried different papers. Also installed new drivers. Tried using USB. Nothing works. HELP!!!!

Re: Erratic black fusing

I'm not real sure about how the software separates the colors, but I believe there's a way to choose a color as all colors combined to make black, or simple black. 

I'm not sure if I'm making any sense, but if the printer is using all the colors to layer up and make black, then it would be a pretty thick coating and that might cause it to flake off.

Patchy color printing, streaks and dull colors using Phaser 8200

I have the same exact problem. I just switched to a mac and the colors are awful. I tried from 3 different macs at work, trying different combinations of color profiles, settings, etc, and the colors always look completely off. Blues are magenta, bright red is a dull reddish, orange is completely brown. It looks like Xerox decided to not even try to make this aspect work with the Mac. This is on the latest Mac book Pro, running Snow Leopard, to a Xerox Phaser 8560 DN.

Phaser 7700GX getting yellow bar down the side of page on all prints

Try cleaning the Laser Unit for Yellow. Try replacing the Imaging Unit for Yellow, or simply take it out and move it to another color.... if the problem occurs on the the other color then it is definitely your Imaging Unit. One of those two is probably causing your issue.

Good Luck.

Installation of Phaser 8550 DP on network

This is no problem for someone with even a little networking knowledge, but it would take longer to write the instructions here, than it would to have someone spend less than an hour configuring it on site. That's my recommendation

Hi, I have the Xerox Phaser 7700GX. I have a scrolling message that says 'cartridge 1,2,3,4 is missing' and tray 4 is missing. I've tried troubleshooting through Xerox'x support site - where I've switched...

That really sounds like corrupted software
Go to
Click "support and drivers"
Enter "phaser 7700" then click the orange "search"
Then "drivers and downloads"
Scroll to "firmware update"
Download it and follow the instructions to load your printer software.
That should correct your problem.
