Question about Xerox 8200/DP Thermal Printer
My Xerox 8200 will not boot up. When powering up, it will display the XEROX logo, but the display will not glow in it's normal green fashion. The green indicator light will illuminate, after going through a cycle of yellow, red, green. I have disconnected the USB and power cables, left them unplugged for a period of several minutes, then reconnected and turned on. The same series occurs. Any ideas? Thanks!
If it takes a long time to cycle, then shuts down. I suspect the drum heaters are defective.
Best way to find that out is, turn off yout room lights, then turn the machine on.
There is a fan exaust on the right side of the printer where there are sloted openings.
When you turn the machine, look in that fan slot and see if you see lights inside the printer. There should be a candesent type of glow you see about 20 seconds to a minute after you turn on the machine. Leave it on for a couple of minutes, but if you see no lights the heater or heaters are bad. They are standard 120 volt 150 watt halogen lamps. Tricky to change. But it can be done.

Tips for a great answer:
The following lists the chain of events that occur when you turn on a printer.
You can follow this list as one means of determining if the printer is operating correctly. The exact chain of events depends upon the last power down condition and where the printer has last determined the printhead is positioned, this is stored in non-volatile RAM.
1. Power cord is plugged in and the power switch is turned on:
2. Power supply senses AC line voltage conditions (110 VAC or 220 VAC)
and enables DC voltages. If an overload occurs, the printer turns off the high voltage DC supplies, causing a "blink" effect on the Control Panel LEDs.
3. BIST test flashes the PE LED very briefly at a fast rate until the end of the
4. The Boot loader performs CPU initialization and RAM test. It then sends
the boot loader version to the serial port.
5. Power-On Self Test (POST) initializes the Control Panel. The Control
Panel LED turns red, green, orange, and then off. The Control Panel LCD then goes black and then clear. The POST version displays on the LCD and waits two seconds.
During this time the operator can press the Back button to bypass the remaining POST test.
6. Low level Power-On Self Test (POST) diagnostics are performed. The
Control Panel displays status messages as each sub-test is performed. This test takes about 8 seconds. All LEDs are off during the test. If POST diagnostics pass, the Control Panel displays the Xerox logo and turns on the green LED.
If the test detects an error, the error message displays on the LCD and the printer flashes the LEDs with a repeating error code pattern.
7. The VxWorks operating system is initialized and engine code is started.
This takes about 15 seconds. The Xerox logo is displayed.
8. Print Engine Self Test (PEST) diagnostics are then performed. These test
the heaters, clutches, motors and solenoids. As each clutch is tested, you hear clicking with four high tones as each motor is tested. This test takes about 30 seconds.
