Solid Fill pages Xerox 8550

Hey Everyone,

I've been able to access the solid fill page setting several times, but I forgot how to find it under troubleshooting option. Could someone please navigate me through this maze.

Thanks!

Xerox Phaser 7400, lines on solid colours


Are the streaks evident when printing actual images? I was told by an experienced Xerox service tech that those solid-fill test pages can be misleading -- mine does the same but prints photos beautifully. I suggest printing some full page photos, check for the streaks. You've already done just about all you can.

Solution : Print the Troubleshooting Print Quality Pages and Make Sure the Colors Are Accurate CAUTION: Use of inks other than Genuine Xerox Solid Ink may affect print quality and printer reliability. It is the only ink designed and manufactured under strict quality controls by Xerox for specific use with this printer. The Xerox Warranty, Service Agreements, and Total Satisfaction Guarantee do not cover damage, malfunction, or degradation of performance caused by use of non-Xerox supplies, or the use of Xerox supplies not specified for this printer.
To print the Troubleshooting Print Quality pages:
  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Troubleshooting Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button to print the test pages.
  4. Go through the pages and find the Light Stripes Test page.

    For each color, remove an unused solid ink stick from the printer, and then use the ink stick to make a mark of color next to the corresponding color on the printed page. If the colors do not closely match, that color will need to be purged from the print head. Continue with step 6 if the colors do not closely match.
  5. NOTE: If the colors do closely match, the problem is not related to the printer's hardware. There is no hardware adjustment available on the Control Panel for calibrating individual colors.

  6. Create a document consisting of a full page (100% fill) of the color not printing correctly, or download and use one of the resource files provided in the table below. For example, if cyan ink is actually printing black, create a document that is a solid fill of cyan, or download and open the Cyan fill page provided in the table below.

    IMPORTANT: Make sure to set the Print Quality mode in the print driver to "Standard" and the TekColor Correction to "None" before performing the next step. This will allow the job to purge only the problem color. Other settings may cause the printer to use a percentage of the other ink sticks.

  7. Print approximately 50 - 100 pages of the document, as necessary, until the printed color returns to normal.
IF THAT DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM TRY THIS: http://www.support.xerox.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?St=156,E=0000000002703198886,K=8233,Sxi=10,Solution=obj(964)

Trying to match color between photograph on monitor to printer. OS is Vista.


The only way to get color matching with the solid ink line 8400, 8500, 8550, 8560, 8860. Is to build you own colors with the CMYK sampler printout.

Beware this will print over 50 pages of swatchs showing the mix of CMYK for various colors. Your can then look at the color you want and see how it's made up i.e. 30% 30% 40% yellow gives a orangish color. You can then build these colors and name them in your application.

You will NOT get Panotone color matching with the solid ink series.

Hi,

There is nothing you can do about the cleaning page. And if its only using 20% of your ink, you're luck normally its 25% of the ink. This is simply how the machine works. Nothing can be done. The Xerox employee was simply trying to give you something to try, but it won't change anything!

Xerox phaser 7700 having problems printing transparencies and accumulator belt problems


Hi xander4265:
I
Streaks in direction of paper travel
There are dark lines running along
the page in the direction of paper
travel from the leading edge to the
trailing edge (B-size print shown).
The printer displays no error code.
Note A-size prints are processed
through the printer with the short
edge of the print parallel to the
direction of the paper path --
making horizontal print artifacts
parallel to the shot edge of the
print.
B-size prints are processed
through the printer with the long
edge of the print parallel to the
paper path -- making horizontal
artifacts parallel to the long axis
of the print.
1. Check the end of life for each of
the consumables by printing the
supplies usage page. From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu, select
Print Supplies Page.
2. Run the solid fill test pages; From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu,
select Service Pages, then select Print Solid Fill Pages. If the missing bands
only occur in a single primary color, replace the print cartridge of the affected
color.
3. Swap print cartridges and run another test print.
Note Under some circumstances, streaking may occur in the margin of
SRA3-size paper. This is due to the edges of the paper extending
beyond the end of the imaging components. print-quality in the
margins of SRA3 paper is not guaranteed.
4. Inspect the Accumulator Belt cleaner; replace the cleaner, if necessary.
5. Run the Remove Print Smears routine. From the front panel’s Support Menu,
select Improve Print-Quality?, then select Remove Print Smears.
6. Replace the Developer Housing Assembly (RRP 27, on page 7-171).
7. Remove the print cartridge and (with a flashlight) check for debris along the
edge of the developer housing.

hope that this will help you.

Phaser 7400 Print Quality (Solid Fills)


i cant remember if the led's are interchangeable or not.. if they are, mark up one of them and swap positions, noting any change of appearence, you should be able to use this method to see if one is faulty, its doubtful all 4 are gone, but think u are barking up the right tree! other possibility is that there is a charging issue with the drums...could be a psu issue, hope this is of help to you, Markus.

Solid ink runs out


That was the first think I was going to suggest was not shutting it off or restarting the machine. Make sure the power save is off on the machine.
The only way I can tell you to resolve the cost is to go on a cost per page maintenance agreement. That way you pay a certain affordible cost per page and they supply the ink.
About the only way to get around the solid ink cost .

Phaser 8550, scratch lines through printout


For the lines try the remove stripes and also the remove smears procedure you can run from the panel.
The Led screen is a known problem. Send Xerox an E-mail and they will replace it.
You have to pay for phone support if your not under waranty.
But they will replace the screen.
