The best way to do that is to take the ink cartidges out take a clean cloth of somesort and lightley dab the place where the ink comes out if that doesnt work try to take a little bit of rubbing alcohol an dab at the ink opening this will make the colors come out alot brighter and fuller

hope this helps!

My xerox phaser 8560 is printing muted color


First off on your screen access troubleshooting, and perform the remove light strips and also remove smears and skips.
Next go to Xerox.com, under support and drivers enter 8560 in the search box. then go to the support page.
You want to look up the procedures for TEC color correction. And follow those steps.
If you are using a generic ink then, all bets are off in getting true color reproduction.

Printing colours


The color cartridge is faulty, you need to replace it.
If it is new ask a refund.
After putting a good cartridge do head cleaning.

Purple Color Printing in b&w mode


When you do nozzle cleaning there is a print test that canon performs. I think it prints out each color. Did the Colors come out correctly? Cuz from there I think you can determine which color is really clogged. I have the solution somewhere but I need to know if the test print comes out correctly or not.

Color issue


If you moved it when it was warm, most likely you have spilled ink into the print head.
If it was shut down for more than an hour before moving it. There is a Tek Color correction you and run. You may have to go to the Xerox.com website and download it and run it.
I would also suggest updating the print driver.
But my guess is moving it damaged the print head and it will most likely need to be replaced.
Also if you go into the print driver properties, you can adjust each color intensity and saturation, you may be able to correct it in that way.
But from experience, I really suspect a faulty print head.

Xerox 8200 Phaser color problems


Have you gone to Xerox.com and clicked Support and Drivers.
In the box that appears type Phaser 8200. The click the red drivers and downloads. Then scroll down and download the jet snipit files.
Then run it as the directions tell. It does a specific jet cleaning that may restore the blue.
Also have you tried to subsitute any jets? The jet substitution comes up in the remove light stripes area. There is a test pattern that prints out with the colors and jet numbers. You then substitute the jet number with the blank square.
You can try those, but with an 8200, I strongly suspect the only thing that is going to correct the problem you have it to replace the print head itself.
I will say also, that is a very expensive part.
The Phaser printers that are toner based now. They produce the best quality color print available. The toner particles on those now align, and are not just placed on the paper "close" to correct. They do it perfectly.
If exact and outstanding color is what your looking for I would look in that direction to be honest. A new print head for a 8200, is over $700.
Try the snippet cleaning, jet substitution and if those dont help, more than likely , I would say 98 percent chance your print head is needing repalced.
You indicated you used the different color settings. Does that include tek color correction?
At the Xerox.com site look into that under support. In the support area type in blue then follow the incorrect color items.
Wish I had an exact answer. In a way there is, but you have to try the snippit and substitution modes to verify the print head will not clean itself properly.

Phaser 860 error code 07.003.45:116163


It is a print head tilt error.
Most likely ink is in the stainless steel pivot block at the bottom of the print head.
Also the printer could have been unplugged and the cleaning blade is stuck to the print head.
Or a cable is binding the print head movement.
