Re: Error codes on xerox 212

A E-5 is a problem with the registration sensor.
Check the side door and see if the metal springs are out of postion and bent. If they shorted in anyway, it might of taken out any of the components in its path.
They need to contact good on the side card they contact with.
The end result is, either the side door has to be replaced, or any of the circuit boards in this path has to be replaced. they are all difficult to get to.
Call Xerox for repairs, or if they do not service the machine, try buying a new copier.

Re: Error codes on xerox 212

An E5 most frequently comes from the door connector . When you open the right side on the upper left there is a black connector. Those contacts may be dirty or bent. Carefully clean and reform if necessary. I will send you some other info to follow.
Also if you take the copy cartridge out and and clean all the contacts inside the machine you can see, it may also correct it.

Recurring problem with E5. Door connector has been replaced, contacts on Interconnect board are clean and shiny, but interlock connection still not reliable. When you remove the rear motor cover and press on the door connector, the E5 goes away and the fuser starts to warm up. The door connector is mounted loosely to the door to allow it to locate itself with the interconnect board when the door is closed. If it is too loose, the connector will not make good enough contact to complete the interlock circuit

Xerox 8500n with error 13323.47:23971

13,323 is a Printhead Reservoir Temperature Faults . One of 3 things. In order of likeliness.
1. Print head has failed
2. Cable to the back of the print head is loose.
3. Electronics module has failed..

What that code means is that once the ink melts and flowes into the print head, the print head is not maintaining the proper temperature.

J8 Error Code

There are a few different part numbers for those cartridges, the chip on them bills differently.
A J8 means although you have a 212 cartridge, it has a chip on it that does not match your machine setup.
A J8 indicates a mismatch in the cartridges and the machine. No you do not have the wrong physical cartridge, it just has a different chip on it.
