I've seen these printers do over 300,000 pages, and at that pagecount they'd be on their THIRD transfer belt and fuser.

A new fuser should be a lot cheaper than a new printer

SOURCE: Transfer Life Low Error on Xerox Phaser 6180

That error is caused when your transfer roller is out of life.
The transfer roller should be in front of the machine when you open the front cover. It will look like film material it is held with two plastic locks one on the right and on the left .
They maybe be colored yellow or blue sometimes.

Clean printheads on Xerox phaser 6180


This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).

The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.

Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its life...it will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.

nstructions
  1. Remove the printer from any UPS supplies, additional power supplies, or power strips.
  2. Plug the printer into a wall outlet to check whether this resolves the problem.
  3. If the printer is already plugged in, try another power source in the building independent of the one being used.
  4. The line voltage and current source at the printer location might need to be inspected to make sure that it meets the printer's electrical specifications.
  5. Turn the printer off then on.WARNING: Be careful when removing or reseating the fuser. Temperatures can reach 400+ degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. If the message persists, turn the printer off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool, then reseat the fuser after checking the internal wiring connections on the right and left side, ensuring that these connections are properly seated.
  7. If the 50.1 or 50.2 error recurs after power-cycling the printer or when trying to print, try installing a known good fuser from another HP LaserJet 4100 series printer, if available.
  8. If the fuser is near or at the end of its estimated life expectancy (approximately 200,000 pages), then replace the fuser. After replacing the fuser, print a Configuration page, a Menu map (shows fuser settings), an Event log, a Supplies status page, and a Usage page, to reference the status of the new fuser and to ensure that the previous fuser settings are in place with the replacement fuser. To print an Information page on the HP LaserJet 4100, perform the following steps
    1. Press the MENU rocker key until INFORMATION MENU appears on the printer display.
    2. Press the ITEM rocker key until PRINT CONFIGURATION (or until PRINT MENU MAP, etc, appears in the printer display.
    3. Press the SELECT button to print the selected information page.
    To print an information page on the HP LaserJet 4100MFP, perform the following steps
    1. Press the MENU button.
    2. Press the DOWN Navigation button until INFORMATION is highlighted.
    3. Press the RIGHT Navigation button.
    4. Press the DOWN Navigation button to highlight PRINT CONFIGURATION (or PRINT MENU MAP, etc, appears in the printer display.
    5. Press the SELECT button, the button with the checkmark on it to print the selected Information page.
  9. If 50.x errors persist after properly installing a known good fuser, or if the errors follow the questionable fuser (provided it is not near the end of its estimated life expectancy), contact HP for further assistance.

How to turn off replace fuser on display on xerox 6180


The message is caused by the fuser having had 100,000 pages or so through it.

It will be pretty much worn out, and should be replaced.

The transfer belt also has a similar pagecount limited life, and also the pickup/separation/transport rollers would benefit from replacing (they can get 'flat spots' on them

What is the expected life of the M20i, before things start to break down. ie: scanner head etc..


This is a very good machine. The self life for the machine depends on Xerox when they end the service life.
The Copy machine is like a car, as long as you keep up the repairs and replace the worn out parts, it will last for a long time.
What you have no control over is if the plastic starts to fall apart due to time. Especially in the main frames. Stress cracks on parts that cannot be replaced.
Otherwise it can go on for a very long time.
Good luck.
