If I understad you correctly, you are getting the errors on your computer from the print jobs faulting out?
Let's start simple to more complicated.
I would at first try shutting down and removing power from the machine for about 10 minutes, then letting it setup. Power back on and let the machine reload its software and setups.
There are various drivers on the www.xerox.com site. You may need to switch driver types. From PS to PCL or PCL to PS. Or the driver simply may be corrupted.
You can also at the site, download the printer software and upload it to the machine to eliminate corruption, and have a fresh version.
Other slight possibilities are, have you changed the word processor your using? Such as sending pages from Word to Open Office ? the format change can cause odd problems.
A firewall issue is a slight possibility, although very unlikely.
I would start with powering the machine down, then drivers.
I suspect one of those 2 will fix your issue.

This fault code is saying that the printhead reservoir thermistor circuit is open. Unfortunately, only a printhead replacement will solve this problem.

Are you using Windows 7? If so, this is a known problem.
The xerox website says to uninstall the printer and reinstall with the correct driver, but this did not work for me.

We have a Xerox Phaser 8500N printer. The yellow is printing out a dingy gold. I hav checked the yellow print blocks and there is plenty.


What it essentially boils down to is that you're not printing enough color. The blocks are melted into a holding bin and will discolor over time. To correct this, you will need to purge the color that is "stale". Go to this link http://www.solid-inks.co.uk/technical_support-phaser_850_860_8200.html?category_id=1 and download the pdf for your color (I would recommend downloading all four to keep on hand). You'll want to open the PDF and print 10 to 20 copies until the bad ink is replaced with fresh ink. You'll notice the color change as the ink is purged.

Xerox 8500n with error 13323.47:23971


13,323 is a Printhead Reservoir Temperature Faults . One of 3 things. In order of likeliness.
1. Print head has failed
2. Cable to the back of the print head is loose.
3. Electronics module has failed..

What that code means is that once the ink melts and flowes into the print head, the print head is not maintaining the proper temperature.

Check the paper path for any and all debris. Use canned air to remove any debris. Also check the paper tray guides to see if they are matched correctly.

My 8500N prints reams of code instead of the jpg sent to print


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.

I can't get rid of the margins when i print something


I'm guess you are printing from MS Word? Click File the "Page Setup" Click the layout tab the far right then go to the bottom and click borders and select the NONE option. You should have your borders removed!! =) That is if that is the type of border you are talking about.

Cheers!!
