Question about Xerox Phaser 8400 Laser Printer

Can't put maintenance kit in

I removed the maintenance kit in order to clean the plastic wiper blade as described in the manual.

Now, when trying to put it back in, it is blocked by the mechanism that is used to lift the maintenance kit up against the drum during normal cleaning operation.

I have gone through the menus to see if any of the options would make this mechanism return to it's normal position, but have not managed to find one.

Can you offer advice on this issue? Thanks.

You can remove the left, as looking from the front, side cover and manually crank down that white cam that moves the kit up and down.
It is opreated by a clutch. Removing that clutch makes it easier to lower.
Left hand side, looking from tehe front. Just do some observation to determine what you need to move. Should not be a problem.

2013 ford escape driver side wiper goes up n stops turn key off Nan back on wiper goes down passenger side does not move

Pop your hood and remove the plastics between your hood and windshield.
Then look at the windshield wiper mechanical assembly. Most likely one of the snap-on connectors came off.
To remove your wipers pull up the plastic cover that attaches to the post that sticks out and also turns your wiper blades next remove the nut on top. Next pull up on the arm (it might be tight) to remove your wiper blade holders. Assembly is just in the reverse order.
If you have never done this before its not hard just be patient and look at what your doing.
Most parts can be bought online and installed by vehicle owners.

How to replace rear wiper on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe?

It's pretty easy, just get the wiper from your auto part store of choice/online (see: it may need to be ordered for you, or you'll get lucky and the store will have it in stock), then remove the plastic cover on top of the nut holding the wiper to the rear hatch. Unscrew the nut-- SAVE IT, you'll need it to ----> replace it with the new wiper blade. Put the blade on, rescrew the nut and *presto*, you're fini!

Head tilt error

You will most likely have to either clean the stainless steel print head block, or get to the print head area and get the print head wiper unstuck from the print head.
Those 2 are the most common reasons for the print head tilting error.
The wiper blade clutch may be failing, but thats not as frequent on the 8560.

Put a brand new maintenance kit in Xerox Phaser 8560 and it died

This is from the service manual. The lobes on the camshaft that rotates the maint kit up are know to crack. If they have rotated on the shaft this could cause your problem.
If you remove both sides and home everything it will come ready as long as nothing is broke

The 7,007.49, 7,008.41, 7009.42, and 7,010.43 errors indicate that the
Printhead was unable to tilt normally on its axis. Possible causes include:
??  The printer was powered off in the middle of a cleaning cycle and the
Wiper Blade has frozen to the Printhead.
??  A Drum Maintenance Camshaft lobe is broken and holding the Drum
Maintenance Kit’s oil roller against the Drum when it should be retracted
to its home position.
??  Process Drive not being aligned correctly.
??  A damaged Printhead Restraint.
??  Ink spilled in the Roll Block preventing proper Printhead motion.
??  Ink or other debris under the Printhead preventing proper motion.
??  The Wiper Assembly not being aligned correctly or ink spilled in the wiper
??  The Head Tilt Gear not being homed correctly.
??  The X-Axis Motor nose cone not being installed correctly.
??  The ferrite torrid on the Printhead interface cable has slipped behind the
Printhead causing the Printhead to bind when it tilts backwards.
??  The black plastic shroud on the back of the Printhead is snapped off and
binding the Printhead when it tilts back.
After servicing the printer, manually set the following assemblies to their
home position before powering on the printer. See Section 6 for
instructions on setting these components to their home positions.
??  Printhead (tilted forward and disengaged from Printhead tilt gear)
??  Head Tilt Gear (disengaged from Process Drive train; arrows on left
frame point to each other)
??  Wiper Assembly (bottom of travel)
??  Process Drive (holes on Transfix Camshaft and Drum Maintenance
Camshaft line up with marks on frame, large gears within assembly
line up with holes in Process Drive housing)

Black lettering on drum and is transferred to printed document. Also paper jams continually and sounds as if it is tearing when it exits the machine.

I am trying to change the blade on my Bosch PHO1 planer. I have taken out the two grub screws holding it but it won't release - any ideas?

If the blades are hard to remove, you will have to remove the blade clamp completely in order to clean everything up. Your blades are probably gummed up from use. If you have a small torch available, you may want to try heating it up a little, this will release the blade (if you are using HSS blades). Be carefull not to melt any plastic in the surrounding areas. If you are using the micro carbide blades you should be able to press the blades out from the side using a scrap piece of wood without removing the screws (just loosen). Use mineral spirits or lacquer thinner or alcohol to clean all surfaces so your new blades will seat properly.

Remove wiper blade

Do you mean the wiper blade or the wiper arm?

The wiper blade should have a small tab or lever on the underside of the hinge where it attaches to the arm. Use a small screwdriver or a pick (etc..) to gently pry the lever upwards to pull the locking tab out of its corresponding hole on the wiper arm. Once the tab is up, firmly grasp the wiper blade and pull towards the base of the wiper arm. Sometimes they stick a little, just be careful not to bend the wiper arm.
If you are looking to remove the wiper arm, remove the plastic cap at the base of the wiper arm to gain access to the nut below. Using either a 13mm (1/2 inch) or 15mm socket (depending on the model) remove the nut by turning counter-clockwise. Once the nut is off, place your hand in the middle portion of the wiper arm and firmly push downward, being careful not to bend the arm. What you are trying to do is rock the arm off of the wiper motor stud. Be sure to mark where the wiper blade rests on the windshield before removing it, so you can reassemble it in the same spot when you put it back together. Use a grease pencil or something else that you can clean off later.
Hope this helps!

The ink seems to smear or drag down the page.

What normally causes that condition is a worn or dirty wiper blade. That blade is located between the print head and the drum. Is will not clean properly between prints.
There is a possibility that the maintenance kit could be the problem depending on how it was stored.
That is a roller impregnated with silicon lubricant, if it is stored standing on end, the lubricant will seep to one side and the opposite side will be pretty dry causing smears and streaks.
Also, have you gone into the tools mode and run the cycle to remove smears and smudges? That can help resolve your problem.
With the problem getting somewhat less as you run, I would take a good look at the maintenance kit just to see how it is cleaning. Look at the large roller and see if there are any sopts.

Error 07,010.43:10406

That error is not related to the maintenance kit.
That code has to do with the print head tilt.
There are 3 things that usually cause that.
Most of the time it is the print head block, which if you remove the left side cover, (looking from the front) it is a stainless steel block located about mid way back on the machine, toward the bottom. It is about 1 inch square, and ink leaks into it and makes it very sticky, The print head then can not pivot betwen the home and print position.
The second most likely problem is the wiper blade is stuck to the print head. You can try turning it off and on a few more times, but if the wiper is tacked tightly, you will have to remove both side covers, and the ink loader, and gently pry the blade off the print head.
Thirdly are the cables that attach to the print head are restricting the free movement of the print head.
None of these are real difficult to do, Just take time and patience.
If you want more procedures etc. let me know. This is normally a pretty easy fix.
