Phaser 7300 problems

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?

My spit and bailing wire fix
"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.

    Thanks Iqbal, I saw the service bulletin from Xerox, it described the problem and said the fix was to replace the whole top assembly. I will be the first to agree though there may be a cheaper way. I have also heard to try remove the flag and sand the pivot shaft and smooth to provide free movement. I may order the flags and polish the shaft, Thanks for the diagram link

    Thanks Iqbal,
    I ordered the sensor flag kit from Xerox, $31, Any ideas on the second question? I think for now I am going to print a BIGGER sign on the printer and a stack of 8.5*11 paper in the MFTray. I don't see a button to rate, hit accept?

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.

    I don't think there may be any option to disable menu. You can block it making disable the connection from button on PVC (just putting a solo tape), but I don't like this type of solution because in this case to enable the button you have to make connection again.

    Anyway if you will hit Accept button against my solution then my solution will get fixya rating.

    Thanks vudutu for your nice feed-back.

Printer won't recognize cartridge

I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
