Question about Xerox Phaser 8560MFP Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a xerox phaser 8560MFP/D. I was told by an independent xerox certified repair station that I should be using Xerox-supplied only toner in my machine, else I will have problems. I do not wish to have problems, but xerox supplied toner is about double the price of other brands of toner. What kind of problems (and how many) have you seen with these solid toner stick phaser printers, as a consequence of using non-Xerox toner sticks? What kinds of problems, and with what frequency, should I experience with my printer as a result of using non-Xerox toner sticks?

    Your responder did not read my question carefully. So I sent follow-up question.

    You say in your reply: "The regular maintenance for the unit is a good routine to make and keep it working in shape even when you;re not using the same brand of product due to budget or the difference of prices." I am not sure what you mean by "regular maintenance"? I do not have a maintenance contract. Too expensive. What is the maintenance schedule for this machine?



    Please read my questions carefully. You did not answer them all. How do I clean the machine?



    I consider myself technically adept. While I do not have a Ph.D. in rocket science, I do have a Ph.D. in nuclear science, and spent 15 years at Los Alamos as an engineer, first scattering neutrons and then as the CISO. So please give me information I crave. I do not like this game of 20 questions.

Actually you can use third party toner on this unit or on any printer brand, manufacturer will always say that to a client that you will have problem in the future if you wont be using a genuine toner from them for marketing purpose of coarse. With my experience for different brands of printer you wont really be having issue using third party toner if you use it properly and check it regularly.

    So what should I believe? I was advised to go to this particular independent repair station by FixYa question two months ago. Understand that they will "say" 'you will have problems if you use non-Xerox toner sticks', but should they push xerox toner as part of their contract with Xerox? However, it was not the manufacturer, but the independent repair station in Frederick, MD that said this.



    As a measure of your experience with these machines, how many phasers have you dealt with in last few years? What are the most common problems you are faced with? What kind of things should I be watching for? Do you (or did you) have xerox certification to work on these machines?



    What do you mean by "use it properly and check it regularly."? How frequently should I be checking it? What should I check? Understand "properly" to mean 'insert toner stick in proper slot and make sure it is all the way down to feed', but what else is there to check?



    I am also interested in "proper" cleaning of the machine. I suspect that a flake of toner covered a sensor somewhere, and that resulted in an "out of [something]" message, but that went away. Not sure what I need to do to clean the machine "properly", what to look for, how to protect drum (I am told that direct sunlight can harm it), etc.?

    Here at Fixya we don;t have any contract with any manufacturer and we are a independent tech support site, Yes here we usually inform client to take it and use a genuine parts, accessories since that is really the best way to maintain and also to make sure that the accessories that client will be using is 100% compatible with the unit.
    I myself handled several unit like this and in our office we also use a third party toner , but for warranty purpose just in case the machine encounter problem the manufacturer will not tell us that the problem is due to the used of third party product for the unit.
    The regular maintenance for the unit is a good routine to make and keep it working in shape even when you;re not using the same brand of product due to budget or the difference of prices.

My printer xerox phaser 8560mfp is printing landscape 1/2 page instead of a full size portrait from a pdf file. How do I get that fixed? Thanks!


You need the new driver. Goto the Xerox website and download the latest driver and save it on your C: drive. Goto Devices and Printers and remove your existing Xerox 8560MFP. Reboot your computer and go back to this screen and click on "add a printer". When you get to the screen "Install the printer driver" you will see Xerox 8560MFP PS highlighted DO NOT CHOOSE THIS! (you will simply be installing the same driver from Windows 7 back). Instead, Click on "Have Disk... and navigate to where you saved the driver. Choose that one and finish the install.

Hi can you tell me if the xerox phaser 8560mfp prints borderless please. Many thanks


No it doesn't. It is a shame because theoretically it is capable but it would require firmware/driver alteration which Xerox are unlikely to do.

Xerox Phaser 8560MFP: When in sleep mode, the printer still wakes up to do a warm up test and then goes back to sleep. How can I turn this off?


Look in the setups.
It might be a good idea to print out the setup sheets. Look under sleep mode and set the time accordingly to what you want.
Alternatly go to the WWW.xerox.com website for assistance.
Good luck.
