Did you just install it ? Sounds like a driver issue.
The only other thing I have seen cause that is software corruption.You can do a NVRAM reset from the screen.
But I would try restarting the machine first. Then go to the Xerox.com site and download a new driver before resetting the NVRAM memory.
It sounds like either the program you are trying to print from of the driver is the issue.
I bet you are printing out code.

How can i avoid label sheets getting stuck in phaser 8560


1. Make sure you are feeding the labels from the bypass tray, not from the cassette.-
2. Make sure the labels are for Laser printers, not Inkjet printers.
3. Do not try and re-use a label sheet that only was half printed on.
4. When you put the labels in the bypass tray, set the paper type to labels...this slows down the print process so they won't get jammed.

Black not printing correctly. It prints yellow and green


check the black cartridge, it may be out. If it is ok, print a test page to see it will print black. If it does not print black, there may be toner spill blocking the black toner sensor.

The inverted, blank, or garbled display is pretty common, a new control panel will fix that and is super easy to install and no tools required. Here is a video that shows how.">

This is a pre heater error.

I would make sure the printer is connected directly into the wall and not into a power strip or UPC as these devices may create momentary AC voltage sags that could cause this error. If power levels going into the printer are good, you will need to contact Xerox for support
