Question about Xerox Phaser 8500N Printer
I am printing from Preview. the first file will print ok, if i load the que with more than one file at a time it prints the code instead of the image
First off and I am sure you have tried this, but power of then power up your printer. Just to allow it to reload the software internally.
The other thing is to change drivers. That is what is generating the code.
You can go to Xerox.com there is a varity of drivers to try. Sometimes a PS and PCL driver will intrepert differently and print code like that.
Not sure preview is where the problem is. But I am assuming it prints fine in other applications.
There is also a firmware update on the xerox.com site, you can upload the newest printer software there. Or at least start out with a clean version on your printers operating software.
I strongly suspect a driver change will help.

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the
print spooler service)
2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\
folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the
time you tried to print - delete these files.
3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the
print spooler service)
4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right
corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View ->
I hope this information has been helpful.
