Re: Xerox WorkCentre Pro 785

If this machine has two trays, try to switch to the top tray and configur this tray for legal size. See if the machine works.
This machine has a clutch on the back of the feed roll, sometimes they do fail. The clutch needs to be replaced. While replacing the clutch replace the feed wheels with it.
The back of the machine where the paper tray is inserted, there are sensing switches. If they are not pushed against the tray correctly you can have occuring jams.
Check also the side lower door, when you open the side door you will see black paper guides. These guides sometimes break off. If they are broken see how you can refit the guide back into the right place.
Also make sure the fuser exit switch is operating correctly. It it hangs up it can cause false jams in the machine.

Re: Xerox WorkCentre Pro 785

My best guess with the A4 is that the tray guide is not set correctly. Or the machine has been told that your tray has A4 in the tray.
If you resolve the A4 issue, you will most likely resolve the jamming problem since it is looking for a longer piece of paper.
Additionally, take a cloth with a soapy cleaner. Fantastic, some cleaner like that, take out the drum, and toner cartridges and clean all the rollers you can see throughly.
If that doesnt resolve the issue then you may also have some very worn out rollers. See if they feel slick .

Check all the paper detecting sensors once more, may be there is something over the sensor.clean all the sensors with VIDEO 90. if after that problem persist please restart the machine and go for software and firmware upgrades.

I need the part # for a pickup roller

If anything else fails, call Xerox and ask for parts support. They might be able to sell you the part. Keep in mind you might have to purchase the whole paper feed assembly, not just the roller.
good luck.

Memory fills after entering one number for manual group send

Ok, whatever is in the memory, you can clear it all out by resetting the main board.
If you wish to do this you can try this.
If i remember,,,,
hold at the same time 1 3 and # at the same time, hold them.
With the other hand power on the machine while holding the buttons....
hold them for about 10 seconds.
let go, and power off the machine.
power on the machine see if the memory messege went away.
If not, try holding the 0 button instead, or in a different routine hold the * button. this will reset the main board. It is cheaper than buying a new main board.
The problem is in the main board if this keeps on happening, the board has to be replaced.
Good luck.

We have the Xerox WorkCentre 665 and it's printing so light.

You can pull the developer houseing out. Wipe the mag roll, so it has a shinny area.
in a small area. Enter the developer housing in again.
Try running a copy.
Remove the developer housing and see if the mag roll moved. If it did not and it is still shinny and clean, this is the problem with light copies. Possibley bad developer housing or ciruit boards. Both are costly.

One other area is, if the developer housing is working, see what brand of toner you are using on this machine?

If it is a brand other than Xerox, dump it all out.
The developer housing has to be completely emptied.
Enter the Xerox toner and see how it works.

Also, a bad Transfer corotron can cause this problem, it may be arching in the blocks.

If all else fails, call Xerox for this major repair.

Memorize tel number

I believe there is a clear memory function on this machine.
Otherwise try to reinitialize the main board.
Try : holding menu + * + # , with other hand turn on machine.
The machine should do a cycle, then come to a ready.
This resets the main board. If this function does not work, I need to find the right code process.
