Question about Xerox 8825 Copier

Xerox WorkCentre XE88 copier

A vertical black line started appearing down the center of my printouts. I'm not getting any warning lights on the copier itself. Someone gave me this copier without a manual and it's worked great for the past year or two. Any suggestions (in low-tech terminology, please!) on what the problem could be? Thanks!

Re: Xerox WorkCentre XE88 copier

Black line usually caused by cleaning blade failure or drum damage
If the fault only occurs when using document feeder and not off the glass, clean the scanner glass (the narrow strip at the side of main glass if fitted)
Drum /cleaning blades are usually contained in the "throw-away" cartridge It would be nice if you could find someone with same machine you could try a swap to prove it

Xerox WorkCentre 4150, 3 vertical white lines in all feeder scans

the problem is in the scanner, open it up and see if you can find any smudges, and clean any obstruction, any ink, liquid eraser residuals, can cause this part to appear as lines on your copied faxed image.
dont concentrate on the printer this is a scanner problem

E7-03 error code on work center xe88 xerox

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

H4 Problem

Hi there, if you want to clear this code its very simple, do the following: -on your control panel locate the clear and auto exposure buttons, next -hit in the following sequence clear, auto, clear, auto without holding them down, after that all your panel lights should go out. If they do not you have to keep trying...They will go out. -Next program the machine as if your going to make 14 copies -Once 14 is displayed, hit the green start button and your copier should be working again. Cheers! :)
