Question about Xerox 212 Laser Printer

Xerox 212 copier

My Xerox 212 will only make 1 or 2 copies and then code U9 comes on and it will not make another copy until you shut it down and restart and then maybe only 1 copy until it shows the same U9. Sometimes the red lighted triangle will light and you can still make a couple more copies. It has always been noisy starting up and making copies. Any help would be appreciated.

If there are arc marks on the copy cartridge you may need to replace the cartridge or, in combination of any of the circuit boards.

That is normally just a dirt issue.
Clean the following.
1. Midway down the right side door, there is a channel with a very thin wire running through it. Gently brush out that channel, then dampen a Q-tip with alcohol and clean that wire, Apply just slight pressure so you do not break the wire.
2. On that same right hand door, near where the paper exits, you will see a silver metal,"sawtooth" shaped strip. Most likely you will notice it is covered with ink. Brush it clean, if you need to take a dry cloth and gently clean it.
3. Remove the copy cartridge. Look on the bottom right side of the machine, you will see a set of contacts. 2 parallel contacts, per set. Clean all the excess ink off of those also. Dry brush or cloth. then look on the cartridge and clean any corresponding contacts in the machine.
4. Check on the upper left there is a door connector. Just make sure none of the tabs are broken on that.
Keep in mind, there are horizontal and vertical contacts to clean on the right side of the machine.
The vast majority of the time. Carefully and throughly cleaning those contacts and that machine area in general will resolve a U9. Pretty common on that machine. It is caused from the high voltage in the machine arching, due to dirty contacts.

It melted in the fuser and has over heated.
You will need to replace the fuser. Google a business called The parts drop, call and ask for Britt.

Rank xerox 5328 U9


if its a u9-1 code it is the lamp that is faulty. Sometimes it can be the connections either end of the lamp but normally the lamp itself. It will probably cost as much to fix as it would to get a new one to be honest

Error code U9


That code normally means you need to do some cleaning to the machine. The majority of the time it is caused by High Voltage arching.
1. Open the right hand door. About mid way down you will see an opening with a very fine wire in it. just a little thicker than a hair. Take a Q-tip with some alcohol and clean that wire. Also gently brush that area BEFORE cleaning with a q-tip to remove as much ink frmo the channel as you can.
2. Towards the top of that door, there is a metal strip, looks like a saw blade, has triangular points on it. I would assume it is pretty black now and not silver. Take a brush and clean that. then gently take a cloth dampened with alcohol and wipe it , very gently until you get it reasonibly clean.
3 Remove the drum cartridge and look for all the contact points. Mostly the ones on the lower right side. Clean all the ink ( toner) from that contact area and look around for all the other contacts to that cartridge.
I would say there is a 90 percent likelyhood this is your problem.

Low line voltage and line spikes can cause this problem, But far less likely.

Try removing the glass, and clean the mirrors with a lint free clothe. Also check to make sure the toner cartridge is seated corrected inside
