SOURCE: xerox phaser 8560 DX error
This fault occurs due to the printhead being stuck in the tilted position.
There are many reasons why this fault will occur, too many to mention.
More often than not, your problem will require the printhead and process gear to be re-aligned in order to get a reboot but sometimes it is possible to get a reboot by doing the following;
Turn the printer off, wait ten seconds then turn it back on again. Wait for the printer to start warming up to about 5 or 10 percent. At this point, switch the machine off again by the machine switch NOT your wall/plug switch. Wait ten seconds and switch on again. Now let it run through its normal cycle. The success rate for this method is small, possibly only 1 in 30 machines will recover.
The reason this will sometimes work is that, when you turn the machine off from the warm up, it powers down using its proper head parking routine, you will notice, it takes a while to shut down. If the original fault was due to say a power cut or someone pulling the plug out it is possible for the printer to find its home position and boot ok.
Unfortunately, a lot of the time, the reason for the fault is printer related and such, this method does not work. But it is always worth a try.
Hope this helps.

Manually verify that the ink stick is able to advance in the ink loader chute. Check for broken or wrong type ink cubes.
