No. That maintenance kit has a chip attached to it. That will reset the machine, It is just a white roll impregnated with silicon to clean and maintain the surface on the drum.
It will take replacement of the kit to reset the machine.

The short answer is probably not.

Maintenance kits are mechanical, usually containing a fuser, a bunch of rollers, and several replacement gears...If the printer requires a maintenance kit to print it's more then just some error you can zero out. It means the printer is physically broken, running too hot, etc.

Xerox phaser 8550 - does a bad print head make a noise like the gears are bad or missing??


No, the noise is made when the printhead cannot tilt back and forth which is caused by either a bad camshaft or process drive motor, they are available in a kit, the part number is 8500-Z2. See link below:

I have a Xerox 8500 DN and it is not recognizing the maintainence kit, have tried compatible and OEM Xerox kits but can not get to identify. on troubleshooting Test: 57 Drum Maint. Kit :Ck DM contact...


The maintenance kit needs to touch contacts to reset it.

There is a camshaft 020K14800 which may be cracked and therefore doesn't position these contacts. I suggest replacing this.

The printer makes a terrible noise during warming up


for a start: these machines are quite noisy at startup, so this may be normal. do you have problems printing? because if you don't, it's not worth trying to fix something that isn't broken. if the printer tells you the maintenance kit needs replacement, you can open the side panel, and feel a little lever at the bottom side of the maintenance kit (yellow-ish drawer). you need to push this lever upwards, while pulling out the maintenance kit.

Xerox 8500 - overprinting when double-sided


That normally is caused by a dirty maintenance kit. Often times they dry out and do not put enough lubricant on the drum, I would start with a new mainteanace lit., you may also have a bad wiper blade, although thats less likely.

Hi,


You need to remove the maintanence kit and clean the wiper blades there and where the paper comes out of the machine at the top. See below and check when your maintenance kit runs out and how to replace it!

Repair guy said printer head was stuck in a non-engaged position and needed changing. costs of parts + times meant it was better to buy a new laserjet canon. Much better than the solid blocks and no need to buy maintenance kit!

Phaser 8500 print problem


There is an encoder on the end of the drum and some of the lubricant from the maintenance kit seeps into.
That encoder will need to be cleaned well or replaced.

Maintenance kit for Xerox 8500


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.
