Colors are wrong. Cartridges say I have plenty of toner in each of the 4 ...but when i print the colors are not right. I did a color test and the yellow is barely visible. How accurate are the sensors that...

Each cartridge has a "memory tag" that keeps track of the cartridge use. It is highly unlikely that all 4 memory tags are bad. Are you using HP cartridges?
Have you calibrated the printer? Do a full calibration.
It is possible that the DC Controller is bad. Each of the "memory tags" reads and writes to the DC Controller. The DC Controller also determines which colors get printed. Have you changed the ITB (Intermediate Transfer Belt)?

Free solution of black bars on paper while printing on xerox dc 12 printer

Most likely this indicates a drum cleaning blade failure. This is especially true if the black Bars run up and down the page and get worse on multiple copy runs. So if you run 10 copies the last one out will be worse than the first one out. If this is the case, cleaner blades are pretty in-expensive at around $40.00.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What is the solution of black bars on paper while printing on xerox dc 12 printer

Most likely a drum cleaning blade. If the streaks are verticle, up and down the page and if they get worse as you run multiple copies. So on a 10 page copy run the last copy out will be worse than the first. Cleaner blades are cheap at around $40.00
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
