So, have been reading this and that forum on what to do, the only difference that i notice with mine is when the old image unit is installed it shows up as being installed. this leads me to think its not the v chip because the printer knows when the old one is installed.

If you want to use photo paper for your Xerox phaser make sure the photo paper is meant to be used in your printer. The best paper would be the Xerox brand photo paper which is made to be used in the Xerox phaser printers. You use them like normal paper and print your document or image onto the paper. If you cannot find the paper that works with this xerox printer go to the Xerox website and under supplies, then entering your printer model it will give a list to the paper recommended for this model.
If you open the top cover and remove the imaging unit. Look straight down, and you will see a black rubber roller about 8 inches long. this is the registration roller. If you remove the four screws (two on the left side, one in the middle, and one on the right) and gently lift up your wrinkled paper will be right there. Since your are not replacing the registration assembly you do not need to remove the two connectors that attach to the main board from the registration assembly. Just remove the paper, reseat unit, and put back screws. There is a test to see if your unit has the fix that gives the drive assembly a little more power to aviod jams in the future. This is a software fix. I believe it's available on the xerox website as a postscript snippet. xx.ps
The Phaser 6250 has a known flaw in the design of the gear slide assembly associated with the door over the imaging unit. One of the teeth has skipped and will require a service tech to "realign Rack-V". It's an easy fix if pictures/diagrams could be posted, but I'm not recommending a novice to attempt this fix without them. "Reseat Imaging Unit" error is a common fix for Xerox printer techs familiar with the 6250.
TRY FIRST (Solutions without parts): For a continuous RAMError message, try cleaning RAM contacts and reseating RAM.
NOTE: Third-party or generic RAM is not covered by warranty or service contract and should be removed for troubleshooting purposes.
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS AND HINTS: Replace RAM. If problem is not resolved, replace the Image Processor board.
Please Note: Intermittent 6250 RAMErrors can be resolved by replacing the Print Engine Board and EEPROM, remembering to Save/ Restore in Diagnostics.
Check a couple of things. Make sure all the seals and tape strips are removes.
Also if you have a 6200 and not a 6250 cartridge, they will not interchange, different chips.
After those 2 things, suspect a defective cartridge that needs to be exchanged.
Doubt it be the fuser(100 000life), "just magenta dots".... fuser would be "all smudged" or "black marks" , "the print rubs off" , "paper is creasing or jamming"
Can prove it by stopping a print (open door) when paper is1/2 way threw machine, you need to stop it before it goes threw the hot bit, so you can tell if the hot bit (fuser) puts the marks on the paper.
Transfer roller one would expect to effect whole print Smudged/Faint,uneven density
It will be the imaging unit ( 30 000 pagelife Ouch$ ) or possible leaking toner (if aftermarket)
Remove imaging unit and inspect film you should find image of lines, dots are usually chips or sticky stuff on drum surface, carefull no oily human fingers on surface please.
When stopping machine mid print and perfecting your timing, pull out the imaging unit and look at replica of your print notice if marked and where.
