The bad ink or spaced gaps in ink loader tray. I removed all the ink from the loader and restarted the printer and got the same error. I then removed the memory from the back of the printer and the side SD card waited then placed them back in along with three caryon ink in each slot and still have the error. With me doing this does that mean I need a new ink loader?

You can try using a small object like a small screw driver or pen to press in on the ink itself and it should stick to the screw driver to remove it. if you are unable to remove the ink this way, you can remove the ink loader for easier access. To remove the ink loader you will need an t20 torque screw driver. Here is a video that shows you how to remove the ink loader. Once you have the ink loader out you can turn it upside down and shake it out if it is loose, if the ink is stuck the the heating plate use a small screw driver through the space in the bottom to try to release it. Once everything is clear re-install it. If all else fails and error continues you should replace the ink loader (part#: 133K27771). Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!
That error states that the ink counter sensor flags are stuck. 9,038 means it is the black one. Make sure there is no blockage in the ink loader and that you are using Genuine Xerox ink sticks. If both of those are fine you need to replace the ink loader. The part # is 133K27711, iteminconline.com has it in stock and can ship same day. Good luck!
This error means something is wrong with the ink loader.
Sometimes a flag gets jamed or broken when you use third party ink or when you use peaces of ink. You can try to remove peaces of ink that are stuck in the inkloader shaft if you this does not help then you will have to replace it.
part# 133K27710 good luck
the .46 means the problem is with the black ink stick. What you can try is this. In the bottom of the ink loader, there is a small pressure switch, There is one in each color slot. Take a pencil, use the eraser side to slide all the way to the bottom of where you load the black sticks. Move the earser end around there to see if the that actuator is just stuck. Normally you just have a piece of an ink stick stuck blocking that sensor.
It is possible the ink loader will need to be replaced, but I honestly have never seen one fail.
That means one of your ink sticks is not advancing in the ink loader. I think 46 means its the black ink stick. But, look in where your ink is loaded. One or maybe more than one stick is stuck and not advancing down in the ink loader. Look for a broken ink, one that is twisted or otherwise just stuck.
If you have to remove them, take a screw, like a drywall screw, twist it into the ink block and slide it up and out.
I am almost positive the ,46 means specifically the black sticks. But I dont have my documentation with me to verify if it's the black or color stick. Either way, it's an easy fix.
Yeah. That code means the black ink stick did not advance downward in the ink loader. Look in that area,either the block twisted or one cracked causing the block not to advance downward into the proper position. If you need to remove them and reload them, take a screw, like a drywall screw and twist it into the ink stick and remove it. If you somehow installed an ink stick from a different model phaser printer it would have a different shape and not actuate the switch at the bottom of the loader.
