That is most likely not an issue between your computer/network and the printer.
The majority of those errors, I would say 99 percent are internal to the printer.
The components within the machine are not communicating, example, the main processor is not seeing the motor running at the right speed, The network board is not communicating with the main processor.
You can remove the covers, MACHINE UN PLUGGED, and disconnect and reconnect plugs and connectors.
You can try going on Xerox.com and downloading and uploading to your printer the Firmware,( AKA Printers internal software) and eliminate any software corruption that may exist in the printer itself.
If you can, make a note of any codes displayed. If you scroll through your menus, you will find a section of fault codes.
If you would like, list them, post them here and I will look them up and give you a more reasoned idea of the problem.

I suspect the machine is on a network and the driver is installed on the server. Your workstations driver properties are probably not the same. i have seen this problem quite a few times and its always been down to configuration and not a fault of the printer. Basically a printer prints what it is sent and to where it is sent.

Good luck

Please help. The device prints once and then stops printing until restarted. This process continues between every print job. The message printed out from the printer is as follows: ERROR:...


This is a corrupted Postscript error.
Possible solutions are, reload up to date driver and/or firmware. Go to Xerox website address below for drivers and firmware.
http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-4500/downloads/engb.html?operatingSystem=winxp&fileLanguage=en_GB
This could also be a program specific problem, try printing from another software package.
Finally, you could try an NVRAM reset. Go to 'Troubleshooting', 'Service Tools', 'Reset NVRAM'. WARNING, before performing an NVRAM reset, print out a configuration page. 'Information', 'Information Pages', 'Configuration Page'. This print out will give you all the printers settings, including your network settings, which will be lost through the reset. You will need to re input them through 'Printer Setup', 'Connection Setup', 'TCPIP'.
Hope this helps.

Hi, my name is Gabriel and I have the Xerox Phaser 4510, I would like to know how to print one page for both sides? Thank you


There ia a duplex unit that you could buy and attach to the machine.
Alternatively when you select "Print"
Select the option to print pages in the range "odd pages
When the job is finished place the printed documents in the manual paper feed and select "Print" again and the option to print all the even pages.
You will also have to check a box to print pages in reverse order or vice versa depending on the order the first batch were printed.
A bit of trial and error might be required before you get the correct solution. Hope this helps??

PRINTING ERROR


> Home > Support & Drivers > Knowledge Base

Solution --> ERROR 0082" name="Note" /> Phaser 790 / DocuColor 2006 Printer's: Cancel print job and cycle the printer's power

  • On the printer's Control Panel, press the Cancel Key (12 KB).
    Note: The READY message may only appear briefly. You may need to keep repeatedly pushing the CANCEL key.
  • If the error message persists, turn the printer off for at least 30 seconds and remove the computer interface to the printer (17 KB) before turning the printer back on.
  • Use the menu keys to perform a front panel reset (under RESETS menu).
  • If the printer redisplays the error message upon reboot, a file is likely STUCK at the front of the print queue. Use the front panel RESETS menu to CLEAR LOGS AND QUEUES, which will delete all print jobs in the printer's disk spool.
    Note: The READY message may only appear briefly. You may need to keep repeatedly pushing the MENU key to gain access to the front panel menu.
  • If the front panel menus can not be accessed turn the printer off for 30 seconds and then turn the printer back on.
  • If it is known which print job was last sent to the printer, try to reprint the last job spooled, which may be the cause of the error. Step 4 on clearing logs and queues may need to be repeated to eliminate the crashing job.
Note: Most XX82 or XX1E front panel error messages are NOT hardware related, but caused by a specific print job or application.
