Question about Xerox Phaser 7300DN Laser Printer
Hi read your post on the 7300 sensor flags, I have 3 issues with my 7300 I want to solve, Here is what I posted.
tryit's suggestions are very helpful, I would like to understand how the sensors actually work, I used the method described below to at least keep it going until I arrive at a solution. I have been quoted $600 for the top cover and sensors and $300 to install. Is this a wide spread problem or does it just show up on older high page count 7300s?

"This may or may not help but I was able to greatly reduce the number of times the error occurs by taping a small piece of very soft foam rubber above the sensor flag with double sided tape. This will do for now until I can learn more about the repair.
got to mention there is a tech note on this I heard and it talks about a "bounce" of the flag sensor and a time out causing the problem."
The questions I want to work on are
#1 the sensor flag problem
#2 I want to disable the %#$@*! ability to print menus from the front panel. I have this issue with students coming up to the printer, having some problem or being impatient and not choosing the right page setup/paper tray/paper then hitting buttons.
The blasted thing defaults to having the Menu highlighted, if they hit OK it goes to Printable Pages Menu. Then they hit OK and it asks to put paper in the manual feed tray, I find it this way all the time, sometimes I can get it to cancel, sometimes not.
Hmm i think it will be better to re-place the sensor as it cost only upto 20$.
Anyways you should have a look on this link. Here is a detail diagram with full specification.
I think it will help you.
