Xerox 8560 Maintenance Kit remaining life

I installed a non xerox Maintenance kit counter chip to extend the life of my kit back in 2012. A few weeks later in 2012 I became unhappy with my choice to do this, so I installed a brand new # 108R00676 Xerox kit $175.00. The new kit never reset the "remaining life". I know I am in need of a new one now. I would like to find out how to reset the machine so it will warn me in the future to order the next kit.

You're probably lucky that your machine still works after using non-xerox products, in any event, I'd suggest a new Xerox Extended kit, it's possible the non-xerox product didn't work as intended and your replacement kit wore out faster because of it.

The kit contains a micro chip which "resets' the counter in your machine, as the count comes from the kit, not the machine itself, however, the machine is capable of sensing when the maintenance kit has reached end of life regardless of count.

Additionally, you should check the wiper blade (you can see it when you remove the maintenance kit) for excessive wax buildup which generally means the machine needs service.

These are great printers, very fast for the quality. They can be quite a nightmare to service due to so many systems which have to be exact!
My #1 advice on this product is if you own one, never ever move it while it's hot! or you could face a very expensive repair!

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.

They sell a lot of maintenance kits that way.I worked for a major Tampa are copier company for 10 years and they used every part until it just quit.However, you should line up a maintenance kit at the ready.Sometimes a counter will shut down the copier when it gets to the point where they want it to stop.

There is no reset. Xerox never designed a supply reset for this machine.

If you installed a new one, either 1) you've got a bad one (get it replaced under warranty) 2)
the chip is not being read (due to drum maintenance camshaft cracked and out of position

The printer requires a maintenance kit. (95% chance anyways)
I would suggenst the extended life maintenance kit (10,000 page lifespan) part number 108R00676 to correct this issue.
You can usually get these where you get your solid ink cartridges.

Xerox 8560 displays replace incorrect maintenance kit


Was this a new maintenance kit? If it was new, try putting the old one back in, if it reports the same message, the pivot plate will more than likely need replacing. If it displays the original message i.e, replace maintenance kit, then the fault is with the new maintenance kit. Do check you have been sent the correct maintenance kit for your machine, part number should be 108R00675 for standard and 108R00676 for the extended Phaser 8560 printer and Phaser 8560MFP kit.
If it is the original maintenance kit and the error just appeared, as I am assuming you will have already tried re-seating it, the problem is likely to be the pivot plate again.
Hope this helps.

With no warning, my Xerox 8560 abruptly quit print...


I don't believe there is anything to do but replace the maint kit. There is a chip on that maint kit and it lets the machine know how much life is left. when you replace it the chip will reset the count. IT SHOULD HAVE WARNED YOU TO ORDER A NEW ONE WITH PLENTY OF WARNING!

The maint kit resets the counter when it is installed. You may have gotten a bad maint kit or the black plasstic part that the roller slides into is bad. That is where the connection is to reset the counter.
